Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 2/46 -- Connor Barwin, DE, 6-4, 256, Cincinnati...He was arguably one of the most versatile athletes in the draft. He played both offensive (tight end) and defensive for the Bearcats, recording 12 sacks and 17 tackles for losses as a senior. He wowed scouts at the Combine, managing a 40 1/2-inch vertical leap and running the 40 in 4.59 seconds. He will play with his hand down as a quarterback-dogging defensive end, probably backing up Mario Williams. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Connor Barwin News
03/09/17 - DE Connor Barwin was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. Barwin came to Philadelphia as an outside linebacker in 2013, signing a six-year, $36 million deal as an unrestricted free agent. Playing left outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, Barwin recorded a career-best 14.5 sacks with 64 total tackles in 2014. Barwin started all 64 regular-season games in his four years with the Eagles and leaves Philadelphia tied for 13th in team history with 31.5 sacks.
12/14/15 - OLB Connor Barwin continues to be an iron man. He played all but four defensive snaps Sunday. His nearly 900 snaps are more than any other 3-4 outside linebacker in the league.
11/18/15 - OLB Connor Barwin (quad) didn't practice Wednesday, but was jogging and is expected to play Sunday.
12/14/14 - LB Connor Barwin now has 14 1/2 sacks and DE Vinny Curry has nine after each recorded one Sunday. As bad as the secondary has been, the Eagles' front seven has become one of the best in the NFL. Not only did Philadelphia get good pressure much of the night, but it also held the NFL's leading rusher, Dallas RB DeMarco Murray, to just 2.6 yards per carry.
11/23/14 - LB Connor Barwin recorded two more sacks, which give him a career-high 12 1/2 on the season with five games left to play. In the last 20 years, only three Eagles players have recorded more than that -- William Fuller (13 sacks in 1995 and 1996), Hugh Douglas (15 in 2000) and Jason Babin (18 in 2011).
