Jonathan Mingo 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Suffered a foot injury in 2021
- Scheme tendencies: Scheme versatile
- 2022 projected role: Will play on the outside and in the slot
Pros: Jonathan Mingo’s plus traits seem to come from his run after the catch ability. Mingo has a thick lower half that serves as a source of power for him to run through arm tackles. When Mingo can get the ball quickly, he has enough lateral agility to make a defender miss and then run with an aggressive nature after that. Mingo’s role should continue to evolve in this Ole Miss offense as he should see a bigger target share this upcoming year. I expect Mingo to be used on all levels of the field but especially as a receiver who can be put in favorable run-after-catch situations.
Cons: In his limited reps this past season, Jonathan Mingo seems to be more effective as an underneath receiver. He struggles at times to really get vertical and threaten the defense over the top. In his release, Mingo has some quickness but not enough to really stop defenders from pressing him. When defenders are pressing him, they can disrupt his release timing and get into his body in the first couple yards of the contact window. Mingo is a receiver that has to build up his speed and doesn’t seem to really hit his stride until he is about 30 yards downfield.
