Anthony Barr: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Barr has a "strong" chance to start after making a good impression so far in training camp, ESPN reports. "He's blitzing well. He's still got to learn some of the rush things in this league. But for the most part, he's advancing as well as expected," said head coach Mike Zimmer.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Barr, the ninth overall pick in the 2014 draft, is expected to start at strong-side linebacker. It sounds like Barr will be used as a linebacker in early downs and as a defensive end on passing downs to maximize his pass rushing skills.
Although GM Rick Spielman called Barr a strong-side linebacker in comments after the Vikings took him with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, head coach Mike Zimmer said it's too early to say exactly where he will play, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. However, Zimmer said both Barr and Chad Greenway (who played strong side linebacker last season) could be used on the field at the same time.

The Vikings selected Barr in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, ninth overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This draft has been full of big surprises, and this is yet another one. Minnesota swapped the eighth pick with Cleveland's ninth overall selection in exchange for a fifth-round selection, and at the new slot they select Barr, a DE/OLB tweener who figures to serve as a pass-rushing specialist behind starting defensive ends Brian Robison and Everson Griffen in Minnesota. Coach Mike Zimmer showed the ability to develop edge defenders in Cincinnati, so Barr will learn from one of the best, but he might have trouble making an immediate IDP impact if he rotates behind Robison and Griffen. Barr's skill set and athleticism are reminiscent of early-career Jevon Kearse.
Barr, an edge defender from UCLA, ran an official 40-yard dash time of 4.66 seconds at the NFL Combine.
