RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Barr is a former edge rusher who Vikings coach Mike Zimmer took on as a conversion project to 4-3 outside linebacker with the ninth overall pick in 2014. The experiment has been promising so far, and there's reason to hope for a breakout in Barr's third season. Barr has 138 tackles (109 solo) and 7.5 sacks in 26 career games, and his background as a highly athletic, successful college pass rusher gives reason to think he could push for the 80-tackle, 10-sack mark during his best years.

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.
