08/31/2013 - Scouting the LSU run defense: Though the Tigers are young overall on defense, much of the experience they do have will impact the run defense. Tackles Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson are the most experienced lineman and the outside linebackers are both seniors. Lamin Barrow was the second-leading tackler last season but got overshadowed by Kevin Minter's remarkable statistics. Speedy Tahj Jones is back after missing everything but the bowl game last season while being academically ineligible. - The Sports Xchange

08/21/2013 - TOP LSU PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 3. ILB Lamin Barrow (6-1, 232, 4.76)...LSU linebackers have not enjoyed nearly as much success in the NFL as players from other positions but that may be about to change. Barrow, like his former teammate Kevin Minter, broke through with an all-conference caliber junior season in 2012 and leads a position group this year that LSU coaches feel might be the most talented on the roster.

Barrow redshirted in 2009 and saw most of his action as a reserve the next two seasons, appearing in 25 games (two starts) and collecting 35 tackles, including 1.5 for loss. He earned the starting WILL position in 2012, however, and finished second to Barrow, notching 104 tackles, including 7.5 for loss.

Barrow looks the part of a big-time prospect at linebacker. He's possesses broad shoulders and a tapered frame, long arms and is athletic. He is a better athlete than football player, at this point, however, as he fails to wrap his arms securely too often. Barrow isn't the classic hit-lift-drive tackler that Minter was for the Tigers in 2012; he prefers to grab ahold of the ball-carrier and 'rassle them to the ground. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
