 Draft Scout Mark Barron News
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
04/27/12 - Schiano was asked how he felt to emerge from the first day of the draft with a pair of first-round talents. "Blessed, no doubt about it," Schiano said. "I feel like we're in a position where we got two great football players and great men, young men that are going to come in here and have an impact and add energy to this organization. I'm really looking forward to it." Barron will provide help for a Bucs defense that was last against the run in 2011, allowing 156.1 yards per game. If scouts had a knock against Barron, it's that he might be as effective in pass coverage. But he finished his career with 12 interceptions. "If you go back and count how many times I've been scored on in my college career, there probably won't be more than three," Barron said. "I don't feel like that's the case at all." - The Sports Xchange
