Draft Scout Mark Barron News
10/01/14 - S Mark Barron has an abdominal strain and was limited in practice Wednesday.
04/30/12 - The last time Greg Schiano was in the NFL as a defensive backs coach for the Chicago Bears in 1998, he wasn't allowed entry into the war room. That obviously wasn't the case as the first-year head coach of the Buccaneers and his handprint were all over the players the team selected in the NFL draft. Schiano obviously looked for common traits: tough-minded team captains, highly productive players from mostly winning programs and guys who love football so much, you have to kick them out of the facility. The Bucs went into the draft with many needs, especially on a defense that allowed a franchise-record 494 points last season, ranked last against the run and allowed 30 touchdown passes. It was no surprise four of the Bucs' first five picks were defensive players, starting with Alabama safety Mark Barron. The Bucs moved down two spots with the Jaguars to take Barron at No. 7 overall, picking up a fourth-round choice in the process. That extra pick became the currency that the Bucs used to trade back up into the first round to take Boise St. running back Doug Martin 31st overall. BEST PICK: Safety Mark Barron: May be one of the most solid players in the NFL draft. He's a two-time captain of the two-time national champion Crimson Tide. He is a physical, no-nonsense film junkie who will provide toughness to a defense that was 32nd against the run and allowed 30 touchdown passes. - The Sports Xchange
04/30/12 - A closer look at the Buccaneers' picks: Round 1/7 - Mark Barron, S, 6-2, 213, Alabama...Bucs traded down two spots with the Jaguars and picked up a fourth-rounder to select Barron, a football junkie who hits like an anvil and has decent coverage ability. - The Sports Xchange
04/27/12 - 2012 NFL DRAFT: PICK-BY-PICK ANALYSIS: 7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (draft-day trade with Jacksonville): SS Mark Barron, Alabama -- Barron is a tough, in-the-box safety but also snagged 12 interceptions in his career with the Crimson Tide and was charged with calling the team's defense. He should shore up the Buccaneers' shaky defense in more ways than one. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange
04/27/12 - TEN SURPRISES FROM ROUND ONE: 5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers take Mark Barron at No. 7: Tampa Bay made the first real surprising pick of the draft with Barron at No. 7. I'm higher on Barron than most so I don't have a problem with the pick but considering that the Bucs needs at cornerback, it was surprising to see the team look so early another option in the secondary. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
