Jonathan Mingo NFL Draft Scouting Report
WR, Ole Miss Rebels
Jonathan Mingo is a senior receiver for the Ole Miss Rebels that has played in more than 40 games during his time at Ole Miss. Throughout Mingo’s career, he has continued to develop and carve out a bigger role for himself. He posted his best season in 2022 with a regular season stat line of 48 receptions, 800 yards, and five touchdowns.
As a receiver prospect, Mingo has a noticeable physical presence. Listed at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, Mingo has a well-proportioned frame with a muscular upper body and a dense lower half. This frame helps Mingo be an effective receiver in multiple ways. As a route-runner facing press coverage, Mingo has shown the ability to use his strength and quickness to play through defensive backs in press coverage and quickly get into his route. Once Mingo has the ball in his hands, he also uses his strength to become a difficult receiver to tackle for defensive backs.
Mingo has a physical approach to getting yards and has consistently been a difficult tackle for defensive backs. Mingo’s physical presence running with the ball after the catch appears to be his best trait as a player. He should be utilized as a player that teams quickly get the ball to, putting him in situations to pick up yards after the catch.
Mingo’s areas of improvement as a player start with what appears to be a lack of true down-the-field speed. Once Mingo wins at the line of scrimmage he has a tough time truly separating from defensive backs vertically. This results in him usually having to make a contested catch in man-to-man coverage. Mingo has shown he can make contested catches but he usually lets the ball drop into his hands versus him going up to catch the ball at the highest point, which gives defensive backs an opportunity to make a play on the ball.
Overall, Mingo’s run-after-the-catch ability and dense frame make him an intriguing wide receiver prospect. In the right offense that uses quick screens and jet motions for their receivers, Mingo has the ability to be a highly productive player on the next level.
