He will make a lot of his plays coming from the backside, but when he gets too high in his stance, he will struggle to disengage trying to shoot the inside gaps.

Is this a fair criticism of Barkevious Mingo? Because this is actually the scouting report for DeMarcus Ware.
It also looks like a Jordan's scouting report too.

The only complete package is Jarvis Jones. And the Steelers are not getting him. If they can stop the run at this stage, they won't be available at 17th.The upside of Jordan and Mingo both justify their mid-first round ranking IMO.
