    The Vikings traded down one spot from #8 and got a 5th round pick in return.

    Have to vote undecided. Right now I'm pretty down on it but this seems like a Zimmer decision wanting a Zimmer guy so I'll give it a chance. Will do more research on Barr in the mean time.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    Figured corner if we went defense. Barr will be a situational pass rusher. Don't like the pick.

    Kind of a surprise pick to me. Expected defensive player but thought Barr was more of a 3-4 LB. I think we may be playin a little 3-4 4-3 hybrid.

    Me neither. I liked C.J. Mosley over Anthony Barr.

    He could rush from the SAM, but...

    This reminds me of the Seattle Bruce Irvin pick, but they had the LOB.

    I have to believe that the Vikes were really down on the qbs.

    Will be interesting to see how Zimmer will use Barr.
    I'm thinking he might be played at outside linebacker, but brought down to pass rush most of the time. He might also be an excellent player to cover the big tight ends in today's game. He's got crazy speed and great length and size. A ton of potential in this guy.

    Remember, there was a point in time when people were arguing whether Clowney or Barr should be drafted first! Some would say that Barr has a higher ceiling than both Clowney and Khalil Mack.

    Possibly, but I think Clowney and Mack are working with a higher ceiling.

    Barr has a history of injuries, and he lacks instincts in space. Plus, he does not have much upper-body strength. It is as dangerous a pick as well as Mosely.
