Figure I could ask this here.
If upper middle back is sore from DL but the legs aren't does that mean I need to work on back strength more?

I almost never get sore legs from deadlifting.

Same here. Lately I've been feeling it in the lower back. Think I need to work on my form when I'm doing heavier high rep DL's.

That seems to be a breaking point for me.

Squat - 255 :(
DL - 375
OHP - 130
Bench - 275

I used to do 100 chin ups or pull ups every other day a few months ago during winter. It only took like 30 minutes, but my lat development was pretty sweet during those times. I did 5 reps, rest, 5 reps, etc, until I reached 100. I ended up doing 8-10, rest, 8-10, rest etc.

I could have done a normal workout but I was working a lot and these types of workouts suited me best at the time. I still feel like I would benefit from this type of chin up/pull up training but it'll only be once a week.

Deadlifts play a big role in back development right now and have always been.
