OVERVIEW

Switched to OLB in 2012, after spending first two seasons at running back. 2013: First Team All-American. Led team in TFL and sacks. 2012: Encouraged to switch positions by new head coach Jim Mora. Second Team All-American. First Team All-Pac 12. Led team in sacks and TFL. Second on team in tackles. Started all 14 games at OLB. 2011: Played in 12 games with seven starts. Also played special teams. 2010: Played in all 12 games with four starts. Winner of John Boncheff, Jr. Memorial Award for Offensive Rookie of the Year. High School: Missed virtually all of his senior season with a broken ankle. SuperPrep All-American. Selected to U.S. Army All-American game but was unable to play. 1,890 rush yards, 20 TD as junior. Misc: Dad, Tony Brooks played fullback at Notre Dame and was a fourth-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1992 NFL Draft. Three uncles also played in the NFL.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS

 Exceptional take-off speed, acceleration and closing burst. Makes plays effortlessly in back-side lateral pursuit. Outstanding recovery quickness to make plays (when he is out of position). Explosive striker. Can produce "wow" plays when he triggers quickly or releases cleanly and has developed a reputation for knocking quarterbacks out of games (see USC, 2012 and New Mexico State, 2013).

WEAKNESSES

 Developing instincts -- late to locate the ball and too easily fooled by play-action and misdirection. Motor runs hot and cold -- does not always apply himself. Can be locked down too easily when engaged -- unrefined hand use. Lacks variety of pass-rush moves and relies too much on natural speed. Average eyes, anticipation and awareness in coverage -- marginal feel. Average base strength -- moved off the ball too easily by tight ends (plays tall).

DRAFT PROJECTION

 Round 1 (top 10)

BOTTOM LINE

 A highly disruptive, athletic specimen with the pass-rush potential to effortlessly emerge as a double-digit sack producer. Is far from a finished product and his best football is still ahead of him, yet he plays the game with more of an offensive temperament and could require some patience. Is the type of rare athlete that could even contribute as an offensive playmaker once he learns to grasp defensive concepts and the game slows down for him. A top-10 talent.

Do you have examples of Greg Williams getting monster production out of this type of player when he changes positions?

I’m not a big fan of the signing either but I suspect Barr will be moved inside to ILB.  He’s excellent against the run but can’t sniff the qb as an Edge rusher

Sign his teammate Zadarius Smith instead Preston Smith is also available. We have  cheaper

options.

Yes I have his career high in sacks is 4 in a season

 

that said I think the jets are going to use him as a ILB and sign Justin Houston and draft Allen. At least that’s me being an optimist

Kid has a nose for the ball he's also great in coverage something we lack a LB with coverage skills.

Na, he'll be more of an OLB rusher.

Minnesota only let him rush a small fraction of the time (explaining the 4 sacks).

He’s not great in coverage.  He’s ok at best. He’s a name because he’s been a starter for Vikings teams that are always in the playoffs or on national tv

Ya think there’s a reason the Vikings didn’t use Barr primarily as an edge rusher?

 

If the jets signed Barr to make him a ILB the move is fine but he’s no better than Jenkins as a pass rusher

It could be because he was an All-Pro for four out of this five years.

Barr ran the 3-cone a full half second faster than DK Metcalf. 

 

This is 2” taller, and carrying an extra 27 lbs.

Yeah, their scheme called for him to do other things.
