Cleveland Browns Rumors: Will the Browns Select LSU DE Barkevious Mingo With the Number Six Pick?

Updated 2/13/2013 at 3:45pm ET

The Cleveland Browns defense was awful in 2012 and they are going to look to fix that problem in this years draft. With the number 6 overall pick, the Browns will almost without a doubt draft a strong defensive player.

The best player, that fits the Browns needs is LSU DE Barkevious Mingo.

The Browns are going to run a 4-3 scheme in 2013 with new defensive coordinator Ray Horton, and Mingo is just the guy they need to rush the quarterback off the edge.

Mingo is considered the strongest, fastest and most athletic pass rusher in this years draft and could be an instant impact player for the Browns on the defensive side of the ball.

While some have called for the Browns to take Geno Smith or Matt Barkley at QB, the Browns are weakest on the defensive side of the ball, and picking Mingo is a safe bet. Mingo will make the Browns a better player from day one and will just add to the talented arsenal of young players the Browns already have.
