17. LB Barkevious Mingo Drafted By: Cleveland Browns (2013)
Barkevious Mingo was the second consecutive LSU alum to be drafted sixth overall when the Browns selected him there in the 2013 NFL Draft. Mingo was a beast for the Tigers with 15 sacks and 29 tackles for a loss. His game never quite translated in the NFL.
He was only a primary starter for one of his three seasons with the Browns before being offloaded for just a 5th round pick to the New England Patriots. Mingo didn’t quite catch on with the Pats either, but he did record two special teams tackles in New England’s victory in Super Bowl LI. Barkevious moved on to Seattle from there and has settled in as a starting outside linebacker.
