Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA

Great all-around linebackers are always difficult to come by. The NFL is becoming more and more dependent on specialists at every position. Players who fit a particular scheme or even just a single position. Barr is a prospect who could feasibly do it all and offer something special in a 4-3 or a 3-4. He can stand up or put his hand in the turf. An excellent athlete who will eventually play the edge rusher role as an outside linebacker.

Barr opted to return to UCLA for his senior year. He was already looking like a standout at that time and a potential second round pick according to my evaluation. Another year to learn the nuances of the game was a wise choice. Barr had spent his first two years as an H-back and special teams player. He really came into his own in 2012 when he was moved to outside linebacker.

The 21-year-old possesses excellent size, length and speed. He has a frame which offers him a lot of groom to grow. He bends easily and can work the outside edge with his agility. Seems to have a knack for taking great lines of pursuit. Really long arms. Doesn't have great hand work or placement. Relies too much on athleticism and must learn to scrap and battle. Great backside pursuit versus the run. Really active on every play to the whistle. He passes the eyeball test and should easily challenge for a starting role on almost any team.

Barr projects as an early first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
