Todd McShay NFL mock draft 2014

Jeff Gross

Not to be outdone by Mel Kiper, Todd McShay has also released a mock draft today.

Todd McShay has put out his new mock (In$ider). He has the Titans taking Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA. We have talked a lot about how that pick makes a lot of sense with the switch to the 3-4, but I have a question about Barr- I was reading something the other day, I think it was from Josh Norris, saying that Barr is more of an athlete than a football player (McShay has similar concerns). It went on to say that he will wow at the combine, but his tape doesn't show a top ten player.

So my question is how many of you out there have watched him play a lot? I have to admit that I have not because I don't watch a lot of the PAC-whatever it is now. It isn't just that I think it is inferior football, it also comes on after my bedtime. All of that to say that I just don't know enough about him to have an informed position.

Here is what McShay had to say about the pick:

Even if Tennessee decides to move on from Jake Locker at QB, it's hard to imagine the team liking one enough to draft him at No. 11 in this scenario. Michigan OT Taylor Lewan and Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix would also fill needs here, but I think Barr would be a fit for new defensive coordinator Ray Horton's hybrid scheme, given Barr's experience working on the line and standing up as a 3-4 outside linebacker. I've been a little underwhelmed by what I've seen from him on tape so far, which is why I have him sliding a bit, but I still have more to study and he's a naturally gifted player with a unique combination of athleticism and size. He should continue to improve, as a converted H-back who has had limited experience playing defense.

Let me know what you think.
