RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Barr was a candidate for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year before missing the final two games with a knee injury. He proved a disruptive force in the passing game, and collected 70 tackles, four sacks and three fumble recoveries in 12 games. Assuming he remains healthy Barr should continues as a cornerstone of an improving Minnesota defense in 2015.

2014

Barr, the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, will start at strong-side linebacker. Barr ran a 4.66 40-yard dash at the combine, which is a strong time for a 6-5, 255 player. He has plenty of on-paper upside to develop, given that he has just two years of defensive experience at UCLA -- he was mostly a failed tight end experiment before that -- and he proved to be a natural edge rusher by piling up 23 sacks and 41 tackles for loss in his first 27 games at the position. Barr will be used as a linebacker in early downs and as a defensive end on passing downs to maximize him as a speed edge rusher. It may take him some time to develop, but he's a rookie IDP to watch for sack potential.
