Draft Scout Lamin Barrow News
08/19/14 - LB Lamin Barrow is expected back on a limited basis as early as Tuesday after suffering a deep leg bruise in the third quarter Sunday. Barrow is working as a backup middle linebacker, but also sees some work as a linebacker in the nickel package.
05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: DENVER BRONCOS: Round 5/156 -- Lamin Barrow, MLB, 6-1, 237, Louisiana State...The Broncos hope Barrow is an eventual answer at middle linebacker, but he could find an immediate role as one of the two linebackers in the nickel sub package. His skill set compares with that of incumbent weak-side linebacker Danny Trevathan. Barrow was a priority Broncos target; general manager John Elway said that coach John Fox "made about 18 laps" around the Broncos' draft room while nervously waiting to see if he fell to their spot. - The Sports Xchange

05/12/14 - It took until the third day for the Broncos to address their depth-shy linebacker corps, when they selected LSU's Lamin Barrow and Oklahoma's Corey Nelson with their fifth- and seventh-round picks, respectively. Nate Irving, the 2011 third-round pick, remains the projected starter at middle linebacker, but he struggled when the Broncos attempted to hand him that job last year. Even if Irving earns that position, he lacks the speed to stay on the field in nickel and dime sub packages. That leaves an opening through which Barrow or Nelson could earn playing time alongside weak-side starter Danny Trevathan, who remains on the field when the Broncos go into their nickel package.
"We feel like they can play multiple positions -- either the mike or the will -- the stack positions," said Broncos coach John Fox. "We'll let them compete and figure that out as we work through the offseason program and then into training camp. They're good football players and can play the linebacker position and we'll let them compete and see where that develops." Barrow appears to be ahead of Nelson, who is coming off a torn pectoral muscle that ended his season last October. - The Sports Xchange
05/07/14 - Five players who should be on Cleveland's draft radar...ILB Lamin Barrow, LSU: Craig Robertson struggled mightily at times last season and his starting job at linebacker is on shaky ground, making Barrow a possible day three pick. Barrow earned the starting weakside linebacker spot as a junior in 2012, starting every game there the past two seasons and earning second-team All-SEC honors as a senior. He approaches the game with a positive, workmanlike attitude, working hard to improve and appearing to genuinely care. Barrow is a tad rigid in his movements, but has good straight-line speed in pursuit to make tackles from sideline-to-sideline. He has developed his strength and football smarts over the years and should provide depth at the next level at either WILL or MIKE linebacker, as well as, special teams coverage. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
