UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr joined Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel as elite football prospects making a case for themselves as the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Asked to put himself in the shoes of an NFL general manager for an evaluation of himself, Barr wasn't shy.

"I think it's simple. He's the best player available in this year's draft. He's going to help our team win games, potentially championships. But he's also more than a football player," Barr told Fox Sports Daily at snappytv.com. "He's a good character, somebody you can trust. So I just think all those things combined make me the perfect package."

Barr is considered among the top three linebackers available in the draft, along with Buffalo's Khalil Mack and Alabama's C.J. Mosley.
