It was reported last week that All-American UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr would be one of the Dallas Cowboys’ 30 allotted pre-draft visitors. According to the Dallas Morning News, that visit will come on Tuesday, the same day they’re reportedly hosting Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.
Of course, Barr may not even make it to the Cowboys, who hold the No. 16 overall pick. According to his draft profile on NFL.com, the converted running back is likely a Top 10 pick.
“A highly disruptive, athletic specimen with the pass-rush potential to effortlessly emerge as a double-digit sack producer,” the profile says. “Is far from a finished product and his best football is still ahead of him, yet he plays the game with more of an offensive temperament and could require some patience."
"Is the type of rare athlete that could even contribute as an offensive playmaker once he learns to grasp defensive concepts and the game slows down for him.”
