Louisville’s Preston Brown will attend #Vikings’ top 30 event next week, according to a league source.

Barr could be an option for the Vikings with their eighth overall pick. The projected first round pick switched from running back to linebacker two years ago and started every game during his junior and senior seasons. Barr was a first-team All-American last year and led the Bruins in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (20).

Listed at 6-5 and 255 pounds, Barr ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds and finished the three-cone drill in 6.82 seconds, third among linebackers.

Brown led the Cardinals with 98 tackles last season. The second-team All-AAC linebacker posted 13 tackles in Louisville’s Sugar Bowl victory over Florida in 2011. Listed at 6-1 and 251 pounds, Brown ran the 40-yard dash in 4.86 seconds. NFL.com’s Nolan Nawrocki described Brown as an “aggressive, high-collision Mike linebacker best paired with a demanding position coach who will extract the most from him.”

Along with Brown, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to attend the event according to ESPN.

Bridgewater could be a great fit for Mike Zimmer and the Vikings. It will be interesting to see what the Vikings do with the 8th pick.
