Connor Barwin DE Cincinnati #5

Ht: 6'4
Wt: 256

Above average athleticism for a defensive lineman. Good upper body strength. Quick off the snap. Has the speed to get into the backfield with consistency. Tons of upside; played tight end until his senior year. Elite special teams player.
Only one year of experience at linebacker; likely won't be able to help right away. Still lacks many fundamentals of the position. Limited experience in coverage.
Barwin is an intriguing prospect. 2 years ago he was fighting for playing time at tight end and now he's a potential late first round pick at defensive end. He's very raw, but he shows the athleticism and intelligence to learn the position quickly. He's an ideal candidate to switch to linebacker in a 3-4 system.
