          • He's actually pretty fast. Solid pick. Can play inside.

            • From CBS:

              STRENGTHS: Athletic play speed with the nimble foot quickness to stay alert and cover a large area - good pursuit range to chase, close and attack on the move...long arms and wingspan with the quick hands to disengage when locked up...physical take-on strength and won't shy from contact...balanced to square to his target with the body control to adjust in space...nice job in coverage to keep his pads low and feet active to play tight coverage and get his head turned to find the ball...quick reactions and reflexes to make up for lost steps...motivated worker and gets the most out of his ability with a relentless motor - has worked hard in the weight room to develop his strength...reliable football character, competitive make up and developing leadership skills...durable two-year starter (28 career starter) with consistent production the past two seasons, earning Second Team All-SEC honors as a senior.

              WEAKNESSES: Lean body type with a narrow trunk and limbs, playing the 225 pound range in 2013...good football smarts, but late to diagnose at times and is more of a see-ball, get-ball type...streaky discipline and gets himself in trouble overpursuing the action and whiffing, struggling to properly break down in motion - bites on fakes and play action...will be put on skates and needs to do a better job anchoring vs. the run...forced to gear down when changing directions and a tad herky-jerky in his movements...room to improve his tackling technique and needs to be more explosive at contact instead of wrestling ballcarriers to the ground - needs to consistently wrap and finish...somewhat of a late bloomer and still developing.

              • Overview

                Louisiana native. Redshirted in 2009. Was a backup Will linebacker and special-teams contributor his first two years. Played 12 games in '10 (started the season opener against North Carolina as an injury replacement for Ryan Baker) and recorded 18 tackles, one-half for loss and zero sacks. Did not play against Tennessee. Played 13 games in '11 (started against Northwestern State when Baker was suspended) and tallied 17-1-0. Did not play against Tennessee. Started all 13 games at Will in '12, posting 104-7.5-0 with five pass breakups and a forced fumble. Was the leading tackler in '13 when he notched 91-5.5-1.5 with two pass breakups. Team captain wore jersey No. 57 prior to his senior season when he was elected to wear No. 18, signifying the player who bests represents what it means to be a Tiger.
                Analysis
                Strengths
                Knee bender. Uses his arms like flippers to ward off blocks on the move. Athletic and agile. Moves well laterally. Can redirect and chase. Drops easily into zone coverage and shows hip swivel and range. Tough and football smart. Highly respected and hardworking team captain. Has special-teams experience and traits. Posted a 35-inch vertical leap and 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump at the combine.
                Weaknesses
                Small-framed -- is short and lacks ideal bulk. Lacks elite speed for his size. Average eyes and instincts. Gives ground at the point of attack. Does not play downhill or make enough plays at/behind the line -- too much production is downfield. Leaves production on the field -- in position but does not finish. Overruns plays (loses contain). Sucked in by playaction. Not a striker.
                Draft Projection
                Rounds 4-5
                Bottom Line
                Undersized, athletic, run-around see-and-go reactor who needs to be protected to be effective. Projects as a Will linebacker, nickel defender and special-teams contributor.

                  well then they have some tough choices when it comes to cuts. Hopefully Elway can scoop some up.

                  • He is that nickel type of LB that Elway hinted at us needing. More specifically, he hinted that we need a three-down guy and Barrow can do that.. A rangy LB.

                      Injury problems, character problems, but when I watched him play, he had top 5 combination of physicality and technique, in terms of corners for this draft.

                      He played excellently against Mike Evans and is a player, if he can stay on the field.

                        • For you value people, Barrow is projected to go in the 5th.

                            • Lamin Barrow – Linebacker
                              Barrow is a fifth year senior and a two year starter. Like many on the LSU defense, even though he didn’t start, he got significant play time as a rotational player.
                              Barrow is one of the better athletes you will see at the linebacker position. He is listed at being 6’2 – 232, but he has a long frame and could easily get to 240+. His play strength is good, but not great, and he is explosive. He has excellent play speed and body control showing quick feet and easy change of direction. His play speed is sub 4.6. He lines up as a Will linebacker, and because of his athleticism, they have him playing in space often. He is used often in coverage, lining up in both zone and man. He has very good man cover skills for a linebacker to go along with good ball skills and hands. He can transition very well. He is also used to rush the passer often and does an excellent job finding seams in the pass protections and getting to the QB. He has 1.5 sacks this year and one QB hurry, while in 2012 he had five QB hurries.
                              Barrow is a good run defender, being better on the perimeter then inside. He is quick to find the ball and consistently takes good angles. He can be inconsistent taking on and shedding blocks at the point. Like many college players, he needs to develop better hand use. Being that I’m old school, I feel shedding blocks is a very important skill, but in today’s game, coaches want athletes and usually feel they can teach the player to shed.
                              Barrow will be one of the better athletes at the linebacker position in this draft. Because of that athleticism, he will be drafted high. I see him fitting best in a 4-3 scheme as a Will but with added weight and bulk, he could easily play inside in a 3-4. It will be interesting watching him perform at the combine.

                              • Like the Barrow pick.

                                Fast LB- good pick for a 5th rounder because there's a chance he can get on the field in some packages and will play special teams.
