Browns Rookie LB Barkevious Mingo Says His Playing Weight Is 'Just Fine'
Barkevious Mingo was drafted by the Cleveland Browns to bring fire off the edge on defense.
Mingo certainly has the tools to thrive at the next level, but is his size an issue?
"Naw, I think I'm just fine the way I am," he told Cleveland reporters, according to ESPN.com.
Mingo is listed at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, a size not dissimilar to Dion Jordan, the 6-6, 248-pound defensive end taken No. 3 overall by the Miami Dolphins.
Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said the team hasn't settled on a weight they'd like Mingo to play at. He dismissed the notion Mingo needs to add 15-20 pounds to his frame.
"Different guys have different body types and different weights that they play the best at," Chudzinski said. "You look at guys from Jason Taylor (who played at 6-6, 244 pounds) all the way to some of the bigger guys. Really, it's a matter of getting them in here, spending some time with (strength) coach (Brad) Roll and bringing them up to speed. All those things will work themselves out."
