[QUOTE=lloydroid;536636]Without knowing, that's got to be Bruce Davis. That was one horrible draft pick [/QUOTE]
right after we picked Bruce Davis in the 3rd round of the 2008 Draft the following players were selected by other teams: :HeadBanger
Jermichael Finley TE
Cliff Avril OLB
Philip Wheeler OLB
Mario Manningham WR

It might be completely unfair to Barr, but as soon as I saw UCLA, all I could think of was Bruce Davis.
Maybe, the next great Steeler OLB is already on the team, just sayin...

Is that how you pick out books to read....by their cover? :p
Personally I think Barr should return to UCLA for his senior year. But he is a totally different type of athlete than Bruce Davis. Davis was limited. Barr has a much higher ceiling. If you look at guys like Aldon Smith I believe Barr's ceiling is somewhere near that. Same type of build and very similar athletically.
