Racking up 23.5 sacks and 41.5 tackles for loss in the past two seasons, Barr is considered one of the best linebacker prospects in this year's draft. At 6-foot-5, 255, Barr is still learning the position, as he played running back his first two seasons with the Bruins. Without a doubt, Barr is one of the top physical specimens of May's draft, and as a result he is projected by most to be a first-round and possibly top-ten draft pick.

Barr comes from a football family as well. His father, Tony Brooks, was drafted by the Eagles in the fourth round of the 1992 draft. Chip Kelly also coached against Barr while he was the head coach at Oregon. In two games against Kelly, Barr (who was still a running back) recorded two rushing yards and 17 receiving yards in limited action.
