The NFL draft is just a few weeks away and the Dallas Cowboys must find a way to improve their front seven especially on the defensive line. Scouts are predicting that if Aaron Donald is off the board the Cowboys will select Barr with the 16th overall pick in this year's draft. Below is Barr's scouting report via NFLDRAFTSCOUT.COM.
Strengths: Perhaps most impressive qualities are Barr's balance, lateral agility and acceleration, which he uses to break down in the open field as well as when exploding into ball carriers for ferocious hits.
Weaknesses: Still developing as a run defender. Will be tested in coverage if working as a stand-up linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Raw as a two-year player on the defensive side of the ball in coverage, and will need to pick up NFL schemes quickly to be more than a situational pass rusher as a rookie.
Compares To: Demarcus Ware, Cowboys -- To develop into the all-around performer that Ware has become, however, Barr will need to show better leverage and overall physicality, especially when offenses run his direction.
