Barkevious Mingo Scouting Report

Barkevious Mingo I LSU I DE/OLB I 6042 I 241 I Junior 40 Time: 4.58 Overview: There’s a lot to love about Mingo but there are major concerns with his game. He played LE exclusively in 2012, lining up over the RT. He’s best suited to transition to a standup linebacker in the NFL or play LEO role in 4-3. Lacks the bulk to set the edge in the run at DE. Freakish athlete with natural movement skills and explosive burst off the edge....

Dion Jordan Scouting Report

He’s best suited to play as a rush linebacker in the 3-4 or SLB in the 4-3. I don’t think he’s going to maximize his abilities as a 4-3 DE unless he adds some bulk/strength. He was rumored to be playing this season in the 225 range. Jordan spent most of his senior season standing up and showed NFL...

Here’s the backstory: Ezekiel Ansah came to BYU in 2008 from Ghana in the hopes of becoming a track star.  He wound up on the BYU football team after some coaxing by teammates.  Didn’t know how to put on football equipment.  He’s 6’6″, 270 pounds and runs a 10.9 100 yard dash. With that story, it becomes real easy to label Ansah as raw.  He’s a project with the Jason Pierre-Paul upside.  That is the...
