Draft Scout Calvin Barnett News
08/12/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: DT Calvin Barnett - Although he drew two personal fouls on the same play in an early loss at Arizona, Barnett was a load in the interior, finishing with eight tackles for loss after arriving at Oklahoma State as a junior-college transfer. Voted by league coaches as the Big 12 defensive newcomer of the year. - The Sports Xchange
08/12/13 - TOP OKLAHOMA STATE PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 1. DT Calvin Barnett (6-2, 300, 5.18)...Considered the top high school recruit from the state of Oklahoma a few years back, Barnett originally committed to Arkansas but didn't qualify and ended up going the junior college route. After two seasons at two-year Navarro College in Texas, he transferred to Oklahoma State last year and had a breakout season with a team-best nine tackles for loss, earning the Big 12 Conference's Defensive Newcomer of the Year award. Barnett has a good first step with natural burst off the line of scrimmage to win with quickness but also flashes the natural strength to bully his way past blocks.
He plays with active limbs to swim his way into the backfield and handle single blocks with speed and passion. But he needs to show better gap integrity, keep his emotions in check and play under control on the field after a handful of personal-foul penalties last year. Barnett still has room to grow mentally at the position, but his blend of quickness and natural power is a good starting point for an NFL prospect with promise. Oklahoma State hasn't produced a defensive player in the top 125 picks of the NFL Draft since 2005 (DB Darrent Williams, Broncos), but Barnett might be able to change that next April. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
