Comparison

Anthony Barr Minnesota Vikings

Tall with a frame that can add significant weight. Plays multiple sports for much of the year and should get significantly bigger once in a college strength program. Not out of the question he could grow into an edge player in time. A highly productive two-way player, working at safety/linebacker and running back. Oftentimes plays deep safety, showing high level movement and coverage skills for a player of his size. Plays with great range and is one of the better form tacklers in the 2019 cycle. Exceptional when moving downhill and delivers huge hits with consistency. Flashes his speed and athleticism in tracking down ball carriers in pursuit. Tough and has a throwback streak to his game. Will need to adjust to playing against top athletes as he rarely if ever faces a prospect of his ilk. Projects as a multi-year Power 5 starter with all-league and perhaps all-American potential on the back end of his career.
