Barr will start as a linebacker, but Spielman sounds like he expects Barr to move around.

Spielman: Next to Clowney, Barr was best edge-rusher in this draft. #Vikings

I am kewl with this pick.

You have to get to the quarterback in this league and the lack of a pass rush was this team's biggest weakness last year.

I like the pick, don't love it. I would have rather had Aaron Donald or Johnny Manziel.

The single worst outcome of this draft. I in no way can get behind this pick. If you're going to draft him, trade back and get him at #20. In my eyes he's the next Vernon Gholston. Hate the pick.

I am ok with this pick, I just worry about scheme fit.

This was the player I figured with get the most over reaction, not that he can't bust, but he has great athletic ability and showed up nicely for UCLA a lot, he's going to allow Greenway to go back to WLB, he's going to be able to get to the QB from the LB position, and Zimmer is going to shape him into a wonderful LB like he's done many a time before.

I actually like the pick. Barr or Donald were my defensive options @ 8.

We needed speed at linebacker and now we have it. Incredible athlete.

Zimmer has a lot of work to do to coach Barr up into a good player. Elite potential but extremely raw.

This pick only makes sense if he is used like Von Miller and is a 10+ sack guy.

If we don't get Bridgewater or Manziel, this pick gets an F.
If we are still able to land one of the top 2 QB's this pick gets a B.

Hate this pick. Absolutely hate it. OMG.... Even if thats the guy you wanted, AT LEAST trade back and get him. One of the worst ways this draft could've gone. Manziel or almost anyone I would have been happier with

I'm so not sure about this one. He could be Demarcus Ware . . . he could be some burnout . . . I think he's a better option at LB than we may give him credit for . . . but I like the fact they went LB in the 1st.

Great point! Fill two needs with one pick!

Vernon Gholston. I could totally see this happening. oh gosh. I'm not liking this pick more and more.

If we wanted defense, take the best darn defensive player out there in Donald.
