The Denver Broncos selected LSU Inside Linebacker Lamin Barrow in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Barrow adds some depth to the Broncos Linebackers, and will contribute on special teams. Barrow could potentially see time in sub-packages next to Danny Trevathan.

Lamin Barrow enjoyed a four year career at LSU where he was a productive linebacker for two of the four years that he was there.

Weaknesses:
