2014 AA Writers’ Mock Draft: Pick No. 5


With the fifth pick in the 2014 AA NFL Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select…

5. Oakland Raiders
Anthony Barr
OLB, UCLA

I selected Anthony Barr for the Raiders because I believe he’s the best defensive prospect in the draft. There’s no doubt that Clowney is impressive and I don’t get too caught up in his supposed lack of effort either. I just believe that Barr is going to blow people away at the draft and I think his ceiling is even higher than that of Clowney. Barr is 6’4″ 247lbs of pass rush potential and is one of the more exciting players to watch in all of college football. I sure hope that I am wrong with this pick because I would not be looking forward to playing against Barr twice a year.
