Three Ole Miss football Rebels competed in this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama to showcase their talents for NFL scouts ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft.
Offensive lineman Nick Broeker, wide receiver Jonathan Mingo, and defensive lineman Tavius Robinson were the three Rebels to represent Ole Miss in Mobile this past weekend.
While all three Rebels competing had solid outings, Jonathon Mingo stood out among a lot of receiving talent to many NFL scouts. On day two of the Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL, Ajat Cybulski of Cover1.net said that Mingo “Made some big plays”.
This past season Mingo was a preseason All-SEC second-team selection. He also played in 13 games, hauling in 51 catches for 861 yards and five touchdowns. That stat line was the most productive by any other Ole Miss football pass catcher.
Mingo had great size compared to a lot of the talented wideouts on display measuring in at 6-foot-1, 226 pounds with a 76 1/4″ wingspan. His strong frame and top-end talent were seen on the field this past weekend in Mobile.
When talking to Cybulski about his performance, Mingo said “I thought I did pretty good, just trying to stack good days on top of good days and trying to prove myself to the scouts and show them the type of receiver I am.”
Mingo also had some impressive wins in one-on-one drills against an extremely talented Kansas State cornerback Julius Brents, catching many scouts’ eye.
Offensive Lineman Nick Broeker put on a show of his own in Mobile, many teams being particularly impressed with a difficult open-field block that he made in practice.
Lionswire listed him as one of their top 10 players who helped themselves during Senior Bowl week, saying that Broeker showed outstanding functional athleticism while playing both left and right guard all week.
Broeker, Mingo, and Robinson will try to add their name to a long list of former Ole Miss football alumni that have competed in the Senior Bowl and gone on to have successful pro careers.
