Barwin is a versatile player who has experience playing on both sides of the ball. He has a great frame; a bit undersized, but has a strong upper-body and is aggressive at the point of attack. He initiates contact off the snap and plays with great leverage. He has quick feet, savvy moves and is relentless off the edge. He has to shed blocks cleanly and be consistent defending the run.
Tom Marino's Ranking
#14 out of 501 overall
#3 at DE
Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis The Texans have major depth issues at defensive end so this selection makes sense. But they have to give him time. Scouts believe he's a bit raw and undeveloped, but he has a strong upside.
