Anthony Barr Selected Ninth Overall in NFL Draft
By: UCLA Athletics

NEW YORK CITY – UCLA All-American Anthony Barr was the ninth overall selection by the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL Draft, held Thursday night at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Barr is the highest UCLA pick since Jonathan Ogden was drafted No. 4 overall by the Baltimore Ravens in 1996. NFL teams have now made 30 UCLA player selections in the first round of the draft, dating back to Cal Rossi in 1947, the No. 4 overall pick by the Redskins.

Datone Jones was drafted 26th overall last year by the Green Bay Packers. The back-to-back first round picks in consecutive years are a first for the Bruins since Freddie Mitchell was selected No. 25 overall in 2001 and Robert Thomas was taken 31st in 2002.

Barr, a 6-foot-4, 248-pound linebacker from San Pedro, Calif., is coming off a stellar senior campaign where he earned 2013 Consensus All-American honors. He won the Lott IMPACT Trophy and was also a finalist for the Butkus, Lombardi and Bednarik Awards.

Barr finished his career sixth on the all-time school list for tackles for loss (41.5) and tied for sixth on the school's all-time list for sacks (23.5). He ranked second in the nation in fumbles recovered (4), fifth in fumbles forced (0.38), ninth in tackles for loss (1.5) and 18th in sacks (0.8) per game.

The second and third rounds of the draft will be broadcast on Friday, May 9 at 4 p.m. PT. Rounds four through seven will take place on Saturday, May 10, starting at 9 a.m. PT.
