Eagles Keying on Barr, Evans and Bucannon as Possible 1st Round Targets

As pre-draft visits and private workouts continue, we are getting a general idea of what players the Philadelphia Eagles could be interested in come the 2014 NFL Draft.   However, three players stand out as serious candidates for their first round pick. They are: OLB Anthony Barr, WR Mike Evans and S Deone Bucannon. Here’s my reasoning… The more pre-draft interest shown...

Packers: PFS Mock 2.0 Results

First Round Selection: Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA. Could Barr really slip to the Packers? It’s highly unlikely, but, stranger things have happened during the NFL Draft. Barr is oozing with raw athletic ability and potential. He made the switch to outside linebacker in 2012 and recorded double-digit sack numbers both seasons. Barr possesses an explosive first step and can be a terror...

Report: UCLA DE/OLB Anthony Barr Visiting Titans

  Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that UCLA DE/OLB Anthony Barr will make a pre-draft visit to Nashville next Tuesday. This is fairly interesting news given that Barr has been a popular selection for the Titans in recent mock drafts. Coming into the 2013 season, many expected Barr to be a top-five selection and while there is still a good chance he could be drafted in the...

UCLA Football: 5 Biggest Questions Heading Into 2014

A convincing 42-12 victory in the Sun Bowl and the announcement that quarterback Brett Hundley would be returning for another season in Westwood set the expectations pretty high for UCLA for the 2014 season, the third for Jim Mora Jr. since taking over as head coach in 2012. After a fast start in 2013, the Bruins fell back down to earth with back to back road losses at Stanford...

UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos leaves for Titans

UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos has been hired as the linebackers coach for the Tennessee Titans, the NFL team announced Saturday. Spanos spent the last two seasons at UCLA, where his solid defenses were led by aggressive linebackers such as Anthony Barr and Jordan Zumwalt. The Bruins had 14 sacks in 2011. They had 47 in 2012, Spano's first season, and 32 sacks last season...

Top Five Pass Rusher Prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft

In this era of the NFL when quarterbacks are breaking passing records almost every week and 4,500 yards passing is no longer a feat for the elite to achieve, defenses are having to adapt to the changes as well. One of the most important weapons a defense can possess in this ‘pass happy’-era is an elite pass rusher that can get to the quarterback  and force him to make mistakes...

UCLA notebook: Hundley's days with Bruins numbered?

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA football held its second practice in preparation for the Sun Bowl later this month, Saturday morning at Spaulding Field. It was somewhat of a quiet day, as this practice was closed to the public and focused more on scout team reps as early bowl practices typically are. The Bruins have not yet started full preparation for Virginia Tech and head coach Jim Mora said...

Five points: Why UCLA will beat USC on Saturday

1. The front seven This could possibly be contingent on whether or not Myles Jack plays as a linebacker or as a running back, but the Bruins' front seven has been the backbone of the team all season. The Trojans know exactly who Anthony Barr is -- and don't think for that Barr isn't aware that USC is gunning for him after taking down Matt Barkley in last year's game...

Bruins look to release frustrations vs. Trojans

There's one key play that still stands out from last year's rivalry game between UCLA and USC: Anthony Barr laying a hit so vicious on star quarterback Matt Barkley that it separated his shoulder and ended his season. It's not something Barr likes to talk about, it's not what he wants to be known for. He instantly became the subject of Troy's vitriol. "...

Bruins try to shake off loss to ASU, look ahead to USC

LOS ANGELES -- If it were any other opponent, UCLA's regular-season finale would be somewhat anticlimactic. Arizona State clinched the Pac-12 South title and the last time the Bruins suffered a big defeat, their Oct. 26 loss to then-No. 3 Oregon, they came out flat in an unimpressive win over cellar-dweller Colorado the following week. But this isn't any other opponent ...

LOS ANGELES -- Two days after defeating Colorado, the No. 19 UCLA Bruins are realizing that while it was a winning performance, it wasn't quite what they're capable of.

The numbers favor the Ducks. Oddsmakers say they are a 23.5-point favorite, an eyebrow-raising difference since UCLA hasn't allowed more than 24 points in any game this season. That total came last week in a 24-10 loss to Stanford. A lot has been written about Anthony Barr, UCLA's relentlessly athletic, NFL-bound outside linebacker, 6-4, 248, in the number 11 jersey. He...
