2014 NFL Draft rumors: Lions 'love' Anthony Barr

Joe Robbins

According to one report, the Detroit Lions "love" UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr.

We've spent a lot of time recently talking about the possibility of the Detroit Lions trading up, but what if they stay at 10? They could potentially have a shot at guys like Eric Ebron, Zack Martin, Taylor Lewan, Justin Gilbert and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, just to name a few options.

Another possibility for the Lions at 10 is UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr. Actually, he might be more than just a possibility. Based on the below tweet from Ian Rapoport, it sounds like Barr is a serious candidate for the 10th overall pick.

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew got an up-close look at Barr back in March when he attended UCLA's pro day. Considering the Lions have a need for an edge pass rusher, Barr could very well be their first-round pick. He could play defensive end in certain situations and line up at outside linebacker as well, and he would give the Lions the "flamethrower" they're seeking for their defense.
