The New Orleans Saints' coaches and scouts always come in full force to LSU's Pro Timing Day, just up the road in Baton Rouge. But this year, they'll be more invested than usual.

LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo is exactly the kind of dynamic pass rusher that the Saints so badly need on the edge of their new 3-4 defense. And he might be available when the Saints are on the clock with the 15th pick in next month's NFL draft.

They seem like a great match. But that's a lot easier for me to say than for the teams investing the premium pick and the big money that goes with it. What really matters is how much of a leap of faith the Saints or the teams picking in front of them are willing to take on Mingo's dazzling potential.
