NFP Final Word on Barron

"Where people could get the misconception that he plays in the box is that in some of Alabama’s sub packages Alabama brings in a third safety and moves Barron to linebacker as a nickel linebacker. He is not used in a box safety role. When he is at that nickel linebacker position he will sometimes blitz, sometimes have the TE in man to man coverage or he can be walked off and play man on a slot. I have also seen him have a back in man coverage when at linebacker. There are other packages where he is also man up on a slot or if they are against trips to one side the inside slot. While he does not have corner cover skills he is a good man to man cover guy showing good hips and a burst. His mirror skills and ball reactions are very good. When playing deep as a free he has range to the sideline and again very good ball awareness. The thing that stands out about Barron is that he was obviously the quarterback of the Alabama defense and his instincts and overall ability are so good that they trusted him in a variety of roles. There is no doubt that he is one of the more versatile safeties in this draft and for people to say he is just a box safety is wrong."
