How to watch the NFL draft
The Vikes "love" Barr's athleticism, says NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The former running back is still learning the fundamentals as a pass rusher, which is where Zimmer's tutelage comes in. If there's an obvious weakness, it's that Barr still gets lost in coverage.
Blessed with exceptional acceleration and closing speed, Barr has a high ceiling as an edge rusher. Our guess is that he will be ticketed as the strong-side linebacker on early downs while switching to defensive end in blitz and sub packages.
