No reason why he couldn't play LB on run downs and then move down to DE on passing situations. This isn't a Bruce Irvin situation where he was strictly a pass rusher in college. Barr is an everydown player for UCLA who can drop in to coverage and take on blocks in the run game. Personally i think he's a better fit in that position then Dion jordan would be (Stronger, more stout against the run and most importantly a better pass rusher).

Im not sold that Dion Jordan is going to be playing in space all the time in the NFL. i think he is better off putting on weight and playing a traditional end spot. It will be nice asset to have a guy like him if u like to zone blitz but are u really going to take a 6'6 guy and tell him to cover Wes Welker in the slot

I love zach line.. He was carrying guys after contact 5-6 yrds down field, and even when the hole was stuffed, was still getting positive yards with his non stop motor and strength combinantion. He makes for a great complement to a David Wilson, in my opinion.. He reminds me of a more complete Kuhn from GB.. Hes all ready caught 32balls this yr and looks pretty natural in his pass recieving.. He falls 2 me somewhere between Peyton Hillis/ Kuhn/ and Jackie Battle.. Not to bad for a late 5th rd pick... WHoever takes him will get a steal..

Eli's at his best when his TE is making big plays.. And when Bennett was making big plays the first wk's of the season, our pass offense was as crisp as ever.. Eiftert is simply better.. i have no problem going a diffrent direction but if there isn't a great pick out there, then i'd rather get the number 1 prospect at a certain positon that could certainly be useful to us, which TE is.. 3TD's outta are TE is simply not good enough.. With his size and skill, he should have half a dozen TD's... I mean, even Kevin Boss, a 5th rd pick outta W.oregon whos done nothing since leaving NY, was a greater weapon to us, especially in the redzone..

Well how many LB's would you ever tell to cover Welker? I do think that Jordan and Barr have the size. strenght and athletism to stick with most TE's in the league

I don't know about Reid? That is certainly debatable, and Minter is rising, as i've said he should be for wks, as i seen ROb Rang got em in the 1st rd now.. U guy sleep on minter, but the guy is increidble.. Hes a indimidator, and somewhat of a playmaker... He really moves around the field at ease, and seems to rack up tackles every game, and is no slouch in coverege and he can rush the passer on ocasion.. I honestly think hes closer to 6ft 1in, then the 5ft 11in, some have speculated.. Shoot, i've seen him listed at 6ft 2in in more then 1 site... I'd be shocked if hes on the board after Bobby Wagner went last yr, which is after the 1st, but hes a better prospect, so he could go anywhere before Bobby Wagner, even the late 1st... And i loved Bobby Wagner!!(whos doing really well, might i add)...

Jordan Hill made it into Walts Stock UP this wk which came out this morning.. I've mocked em a few times to us, most recently this wk, and io'm telling u, this kid will help our pass rush immensley.. U put Linval, Hill, and JPP on 3/4 of ur 4/3 makeup, and ur on 2 something...
Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
Hill took over and dominated his final collegiate game. The Wisconsin Badgers were the victim as Hill killed them as a pass-rusher while also stuffing a plethora of runs at the line of scrimmage. He was moving well around the line of scrimmage all night and not giving up any ground.
Hill made a plethora of tackles in the ground game. He picked up his first sack after starting to his left before shedding center Travis Frederick to cut back to the right and tackle the quarterback.
In crunch time late in the fourth quarter, Hill came up with a big sack when the Badgers were driving and trying to tie the game. Hill slipped past the guard and exploded down the pocket to flatten Phillips for his second sack. Hill added another tackle of Montee Ball on first-and-goal. Hill used a swim move on third-and-goal to get by Travis Frederick and tackle Ball for a loss of a couple of yards.
Aside from his sacks, Hill got a number of punishing hits on quarterback Curt Phillips just after he threw the ball. Hill totaled 12 tackles, three tackles for a loss and two sacks versus Wisconsin. The 6-foot-1, 292-pounder used his final game to show NFL teams that he is worthy of a second-day pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Hill totaled 64 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, one interception, 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 2012.

Joseph Fauria had another marvelous game albeit in a losing effort.. He scored yet again, and put up WR type stat line yet again.. At 4catches 61yrds 1td vs a super tough stanford D... Hes scored in 7outta8 games, and i will trust 100pct that our coaches can get maximum potential outta his 6ft 7in 255lb frame towards becoming a solid NFL blocker.. If we need a TE or go a diffrent direction in 1st rd, i'd consider Fauria in 2nd or 3rd... Hes really good..

Been gone for the Thanksgiving week so I apologize in advance if it has already been noticed but Ansah seems to have found himself in the late 1st for a few mocks now.
Cool story bro

Neither of these guys are top 20 picks, so for rainierjef to feel they wouldn't be there in the late 20's I thought was a little assumptious.
