This sh*t is stupid. Take the race out of this discussion.
Bottom line is he's not as talented as some most of the younger LB's we have.
What about L. Phillips or Trey G.? The only way that Barrow stays outside is if one of those guys step up. But, as we know, Chief likes to use guys who know the system that can be his QB or coach on the field.
Just from an visual intimidation standpoint, Lewis Neal look like he would be a mean mf in the middle.

DJones, TJones, Phillips, Alexander are OLBs.
Feist, Welter, Granier are ILBs.
Barrow and Louis can play either.
Chavis knows that Barrow can man the middle but he wants to see if someone else can step up and claim the position, allowing him to keep Barrow outside. If Welter and Feist do not impress Chavis look for Barrow to move inside.
TJones is starting at SAM. WILL is probably going to be DJones. Look for Alexander to get time backing up TJones at SAM and for Philips and Louis to fight for time behind DJones. There could also be situations in a game where Chavis will move Barrow back outside and bring in Feist, Welter, or Louis inside.
Then we have MJones coming in as a ILB and Beckwith, who has stated that Chavis told him he will play OLB.

Just watched his highschool highlights...purely fundamental player...i see speed but not quickness. however, he seems to always be in the right place. he could be a solid middle lb if he has speed on his weak and strong side. if he has to chase down some of this speed at Rb he may have a problem but if his strong and weak side can funnel those runners to him then he will most likely produce...imo
