Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Lamin Barrow, ILB

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 NFL Draft.

Lamin Barrow

Inside Linebacker

Height: 6'1", Weight: 237 lbs

Louisiana State

Strengths: Barrow has a well-built, albeit undersized frame. He looks the part though he could stand to gain another 5-10 lbs. Has very long arms and big, broad shoulders. He also seems very smart. Well-respected team captain.

Barrow is an incredible athlete and very good against the run. Explosive athleticism and agility. Takes good angles and always seems to be around the ball.

Weaknesses: Better athlete than football player. When trying to tackle, Barrow too often fails to wrap-up. He's not known as a violent striker/"blow 'em up" type of tackler, but rather seems to wrestle the ball carrier to the ground. He's also fairly weak in pass coverage.

Is a little short and a little light. As I said before, needs to gain 5-10 lbs of muscle. Barrow also needs to work on his technique. He too frequently loses contain and is fooled by playaction.

Bottom Line: A very solid and under-the-radar prospect. Good at everything, not great at anything, and bad at nothing. Shows good football intelligence and the capability to be the "QB of the defense." Great athlete who needs coaching on technique to bring out his full potential.

Player Comparison: Ernie Sims

Projected Round: 4-5. Some think he'll go as high as the third round.

Team(s) He Fits Best On: Jaguars or Saints
