Mingo has freakish natural athleticism, and if he gets with the right NFL coaching staff, he'll put it all together. His instincts are not exceptional, but like Ware, he can rush the passer with speed. If you want him to produce, line Mingo up in a wide-7 or wide-9 technique and let him charge the backfield off the edge, because he is by far the fastest defensive lineman in this class when coming off the perimeter. -- Todd McShay
