generally the only champs outside of AP carries that are viable mid are those that have good CC. The notable exceptions are champions with crazy long range, like Caitlyn, or a high armor+burst ranged carries like Graves. Kog'maw can work if the other mid is bad, but generally gets hosed by AP carries or anyone with good CC or burst. His range isn't long enough at the early levels to compete with the other good mid champs.

Kogmaw AD actually does decent mid. The only problem is that being a static dps like him (unlike vayne, cait, ez, etc.) he is super-susceptible to ganks. So if you're going to, take flash and ghost or exhaust.

There was another thread just like this one that was posted in general discussion.

As i stated in one of the comments, AP kog is fine mid. If you are even a slightly competent played then you will not only survive, but thrive in mid.

As for the counters...personally speaking i have a hard time with Leblanc and Kassadin (like any other caster). Kog has a very slow base move speed so if you dont start off with boots first then brand and xerath can be hard

i have played a lot of mid with kog, and he is actually pretty good, althou you will be so much more effective with smart teamates ( ganker)

also brand and xerath do give problem, and karthus also, very annoying
he can deliver a lot of damage, but its easy to escape from him if ur paying attention to the range
