A four-star, All-State recruit out of Brandon High in Branon, Mississippi. Mingo chose to remain home and enroll at Mississippi over Notre Dame, Arkansas, and Memphis. He caught 39 passes for 551 yards and four touchdowns in 2019 and 2020. Prior to his junior year, Mingo was named to Phil Steele’s preseason All-SEC second team but was limited to just six games with a broken left foot. He stayed healthy in his final season, starting 12 games and posting a 51/861/5 line.

Most draftniks had Jonathan Mingo as a potential Day 2 pick, but his selection at 2.08 as the WR5 was quite a surprise. There’s a lot to like about Mingo’s imposing frame. Also, he’s a tough, physical runner who has drawn comparisons to Anquan Boldin and Deebo Samuel.
There’s also some Laviska Shenault to Mingo’s game, and as luck would have it, Mingo is now in Carolina with Shenault. After jettisoning D.J. Moore this offseason, the depth chart is wide open in Carolina. Mingo should open the season as a top-3 wideout with No. 1 WR potential.
The early second-round draft value makes Mingo a screaming value in the fourth round. Expect his rookie ADP to fly up. He’s a player to also keep in mind as a late-round target for the rebuilding Carolina Panthers.
