Draft "experts" love to group think. They aren't the ones that will be sitting there with a pick in the teens and see Mingo is still a ways off from NFL LB bulk (can he get there?) and will see that he didn't even accomplish his job at a great level in college yet. A 230lb pass rush specialist that didn't even rush the passer that well? Would you risk a top20 pick on him? If you say yes, you are qualified to be either Mel Kiper or Al Davis.

And as a cross position comparison: Taylor Mays S for USC who was rated by Kiper and others as an easy top 15 pick after his junior year. He was rated by those experts solely on reputation and athletic ability. But Mays showed just ok ball instincts and couldn't make the big play at the college level. So Mays inquired after his Junior year to find out where he would be picked and found out the experts were generous without the on the field production. I have a feeling Mingo will hear the same.
