Barrow is the closest thing to Minter. Has the size, experience, motor and IQ to play MLB. We have plenty of young OLB's who stepped up as true freshman. Plus, we get an experienced OLB back in Tahj Jones.
Didn't realize Jones got big. I think he will be a good MLB after a year or two in the program. But out of curiosity, could he play DE? Always thought he had the size to convert to the line.

You did notice that T Jones actually started the bowl game? I don't know who or why made the call. Maybe it was to reward him for going the whole year on the scout team or what.
As to OP.
Barrow moves to middle. He is the most experienced, knows all the calls and he did have a hell of a season. He was right up there with Minter the whole way, led the team in tackles more than a few times. Can't believe he didn't get more consideration for all conference.
It really is a shame Debo isn't 15 lbs heavier because he has the best instinct out of all of the Lbs. And wish Maclin could have made a successful switch to MLb, he would be a beast in Chavis' system.
