Barkevious Mingo could be a good fit for Jets Dan Leberfeld

Indianapolis – LSU DE Barkevious Mingo thinks he can be an effective 3-4 OLB.

“[In college] I covered backs and tight ends,” Mingo said.

What separates him from other pass rushers?

“My speed and quick first step – I like to get to the quarterback,” Mingo said.

How did he get the unusual first name?

“My mom kind of just threw it together,” Mingo said.

Why has LSU produced so many pro prospects in recent years?

“[Coach Les Miles] doesn’t just do a good job recruiting, but developing his players,” Mingo said.
