    @SidelineFB I'm sure the dude's being game-planned for. (Damned preposition).

    @jimwexell He has a 1st rounder on the other side and plenty of talent at DT. He's not getting that much extra attention.

    @SidelineFB I like Montgomery but Mingo has great burst to the QB and the pop when he gets there. I just assumed 49 made it easier for 99.

    @SidelineFB heard the exact same from a scout this week. He was mystified at him as a football player.

    @JeffRisdon He didn't impress me at all vs. Jake Matthews

    @SidelineFB saw LSU in person twice, once w/ AFC North scout, was not impressed other than exactly four plays.

    Scouts Inc. just had him included in a Stock Down section. Here's the writeup. There's much more on that page so I don't think this is against the article posting rules here. Much more at the link.

    Stock down

    LSU Barkevious Mingo (Grade: 95)

    Mingo has the burst, bend and length NFL teams covet in edge rushers, and he will be a first-round pick if he enters the draft as a non-senior. However, "potential" is often a four-letter word in the NFL, and the fact that Mingo hasn't made more of an impact with his considerable physical tools is reason for concern.

    He has only four sacks on the season, and none of the four is particularly impressive. The speed he showed getting to the quarterback against South Carolina and Mississippi State is excellent, but scouts already knew about that part of his game. -- SM

    And while Mingo did a nice job getting off blocks to record sacks in the Towson and Texas A&M games, fellow DE Sam Montgomery flushed the quarterback right to Mingo in the Towson game, and Mingo beat a tight end against the Aggies.

    Also take into account that in the Towson game, Mingo faced an FCS tackle who lined up at guard last season, a redshirt freshman making his fourth career start in the South Carolina game, and a junior college transfer in the Mississippi State game.

    On the flip side, NFL prospects D.J. Fluker of Alabama and Jake Matthews of Texas A&M both got the better of Mingo when matched up against him. Mingo clearly has first-round talent, but his lack of production against top competition could cause him to slide down the board a bit. -- SM

    So which do you want? The more productive player with less upside (Sam Montgomery) or the less productive but huge potential player (Barkevious Mingo)?

    At this point I like both Moore and Montgomery better than him because they get consistent pressure from the strong side. Unless they tank the last 4 games Moore will be gone, Montgomery should be there.

    Moore, Jones, and Jordan are the only top prospects I would want as a OLB right now as a 1st round pick.
