5. Anthony Barr (2014)

Last year’s No. 9 pick went to the Minnesota Vikings thanks to a three way trade involving the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. The Vikings took linebacker Anthony Barr from UCLA and he did not disappoint. Barr totaled four sacks, two forced fumbles, one touchdown and 70 tackles despite only starting 12 games.

Barr was lost in late December of last year due to a knee injury but will be a beast in the Vikings’ defense for years to come because of his tackling skills and nose for the ball. The Vikings hit a home run with this draft pick.
