Draft Scout Snapshot: 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
