Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Browns' picks: Round 1/6 - Barkevious Mingo, LB, 6-4, 237, LSU...The Browns want Mingo to start on the right side with Paul Kruger on the left and pressure the quarterback relentlessly. Mingo had eight sacks in 2011 and 4.5 last year, but coach Rob Chudzinski isn't concerned about the decline. Mingo did very little pass coverage at LSU and will have to learn that with the Browns. - The Sports Xchange
