What has Barwin done that Mark Anderson has not?
Anderson looks more fluid & explosive & if I were to guess, I would think he projects better at OLB than Barwin.
He had a hell of a rookie season, but dropped off around the same time that Bears defense mysteriously disappeared. Got a change of scenery in Houston & did a good job for a guy off the street.
He may very well be the biggest surprise of the season.
IMO, if we aren't getting Quin or Von Miller in the first, I think Anderson..... Barwin..... even Nading just as promising as anyone left.
