44. Anthony Barr

A First Round Pick (9th Overall) and All-American from UCLA, Anthony Barr made the Minnesota Vikings starting lineup as a rookie at Right Linebacker, but it was the next four seasons that land him on this list.

Chosen for the Pro Bowl annually from 2015 to 2018, Barr might have worked the right side of the field, but was capable of plowing through the interior at any time.  A punishing tackler (ask Aaron Rodgers), Barr had been accused of taking his foot off the gas pedal on occasion but when he was on, there were few better.

As of this writing, Barr is a Free Agent and coming off a slew of injuries.  If this is it for Barr, he leaves Minnesota with 495 Tackles in 98 Games.
