First round

Ninth overall

Anthony Barr, UCLA • LB 6-5 255

Stats: Played two years at linebacker, made 149 tackles and forced nine fumbles. Had 40.5 tackles for loss and had 23.5 sacks. Consensus All-America last year and two-time All-Pac 12 first team selection.

Skinny: Used his athleticism to dominate in his first year at linebacker but became smarter his senior season. Still a raw linebacker that Mike Zimmer will need to develop, but Barr has a lot of upside.

First round

32nd overall

Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville • QB 6-2 214

Stats: Threw for 9,817 yards with 72 touchdowns in 39 games. Completed 68.4 percent of his passes. Named Big East Offensive Player of the Year in 2012.

Skinny: Fell in the draft because of a poor Pro Day. Was considered one of the top prospects leading up to that point. Will need to work deep ball accuracy. Only 21 years old, but he has the ability to compete for a starting job immediately.

 

Third round

72nd overall

Scott Crichton, Oregon State • DE 6-3 273

Stats: Started 36 of 38 games in three seasons and finished with 22.5 sacks and 51 tackles for loss and record 165 tackles (100 solo).

Skinny: He was the best player on their board at the time of the pick. He has a great motor and versatile on the defensive line. He gives Zimmer more depth on the defensive line.
