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
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).
11/11/14 - LB Connor Barwin surpassed his career high for sacks in a game with 3 1/2, including three just in the first half. Barwin now has 10 1/2 sacks on the season. That's the most for an Eagles player through nine games since defensive end Hugh Douglas had 11 in 2003.
10/12/14 - LB Connor Barwin didn't enjoy the best game of his career, but it was close. The veteran had three sacks Sunday night, which is one below his career high, set against Jacksonville in 2011 when he was a member of the Houston Texans. Barwin, 27, joined the Eagles last year and has become one of the team's defensive leaders. "When you have a game like this, it makes you feel young again," Barwin said. "Really, a big key tonight was the way (defensive coordinator) Bill Davis moved us around. You could sense that they didn't know where we were coming from and when we were coming, and if you can get a team on their heels like that, good things will happen."
