Rookie Mingo's role for the Browns
June, 5, 2013

The Cleveland Browns used the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft to select LSU's Barkevious Mingo. When dropping such a high pick on a defensive player, teams typically expect said player to start, but that may not be the case for Mingo as a rookie with the Browns. Per Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, Mingo has been working out with the second defensive unit thus far in OTAs. However, Grossi thinks "it’s no concern and no reason not to expect a significant contribution from him as a rookie."
