- LSU DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo measured 6-foot-4 1/4 and 241 pounds at Saturday's NFL Combine weigh-in.If Mingo seems shorter than expected, it's because he plays very upright on tape and that's among the concerns for him among NFL evaluators. When Mingo makes himself an upright target for offensive linemen, he becomes easier to block. We still suspect the freakishly athletic Mingo will star in Combine workouts.
-League personnel are reportedly not surprised Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones is skipping Combine workouts because he's not expected to "test very well" in the 40-yard dash and vertical leap."Numerous sources" tell NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah that Jones needs extra time to improve his test numbers because his measurable athleticism is unimpressive. Jones is the only player sitting out the Combine despite being 100 percent. It's quite possible his "stock will drop" if he tests poorly at Pro Day.Rotoworld.com:

The Saints'll probably lose one more when they HAVE to move up and grab that can't miss player, LOL. I'd really like to be a draft scout with the Saints. Just kick back all day.
