Barrow puts the "mean" in Lamin; is ready for NFL draft

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

LSUlinebacker Lamin Barrow has played in a way that has put the "mean" in "Lamin"and he is hoping NFL scouts have noticed how he loves to get after whoever hasthe football.

"It's like,I don't know if you ever watch the Discover Channel," says Barrow. "When the lionsand tigers ready to pounce, the mouth starts to water, go and rejoice."

Barrow didnot play on a regular basis until his junior season, waiting patiently andlearning under coach john Chavis, who he credits with teaching him how toplay. 

Barrow alsohas a unique first name.  "The name Laminis African," says Barrow. "My father is from Gambia, he came here, met my motherand the rest is history.  The name means ‘trustworthy.'"

Barrow hasproven he can handle all that comes in his path.  Before his time at LSU, he and his familywere displaced by Katrina to Alexandria for several months, so preparing to bedrafted is not that unsettling to him.

He laughs atthe fact he can't control where he goes now. "People ask all the time, who do Iwant to play for? I'll always be a Saints fan."  Barrow says he's ready to play for whoevertakes him, even if it's Minnesota which will be playing outdoors the next twoyears while a new stadium is being built. Barrow sighed when hearing that but added, "Wherever I go is where I go."

Whicheverteam ends up drafting Barrow, it should have no worries. Lamin is trustworthy.
