Scouting Report/Player Notes

Barrow may be an even better LB prospect coming out than Kevin Minter was last year as a junior, and he was picked by the Cardinals in the 2nd round. Barrow isn’t nearly as polished, but he is a heck of an athlete who put together an excellent junior season. He finished the 2012 season with 104 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, five passes broken up, and a forced fumble. This guy makes plays all over the field and has great speed and pursuit. He never seems to give up on a play. Barrow is a very athletic linebacker who has good size for the WILL LB position at the next level, and appears to have the ideal skill set as well.

He has a good frame and while he’s not the prettiest tackler, he finds a way to get guys on the ground. Needs to do a better job of wrapping up ball carriers consistently, and can occasionally take too many gambles. As athletic as he is, it’s not a surprise to see him take a lot of chances on big hits. I think he is a solid day two prospect heading into his senior season with a chance to up his stock even further.
