This from Ed Thompson at Scout.com: FOX Sports on MSN - NFL Draft - 7 Points: Don't overlook OSU's Laurinaitis Point #3: Connor Barwin is this year's most versatile draft prospect ... period. According to Thompson: "Sure, players like Missouri's Jeremy Maclin and Penn State's Derrick Williams are tremendous talents who can catch the football, run with it and be breakaway threats as return specialists. But what's made Cincinnati's Barwin so special in this year's draft class is that he's a defensive end who can put quarterbacks into a panic, a linebacker with the range and quickness to attack the line of scrimmage or cover a receiver, a tight end who can catch and block effectively and a special teams star who covers well, blocks kicks and is a capable long-snapper. Connor Barwin is like having three or four players for the price of one. As teams have watched him put his athleticism on display, they've realized what he could do for their team. Barwin posted 11 sacks and had three blocked kicks during his senior year. During the 6-foot-4, 256-pound player's official visit with the Patriots, he had an opportunity to meet with coach Bill Belichick. "He told me stay versatile, do as much as I can do, because with the Patriots I won't know how they're going to use me until I get there, and even then, it could switch halfway through the season," Barwin said. New England's belief that he could play on either side of the football was reflected by the fact that he met with three offensive coaches and the defensive coordinator during his visit. Barwin had official team visits with the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs and the Rams. He also worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks, the Dolphins, Patriots and Broncos." That's the first quotes I've heard from Belichick regarding Barwin. Souns like they would use him on ST and TE to start out while working him in at OLB by the midpoint of the season. Interesting stuff.
