2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
NFL scouts will love Barron's size, as he registers at 6'2'' and 218 pounds. He has decent speed, too, generally running in the mid-4.5s in the 40-yard dash while being clocked as fast as 4.47 from that distance. Barron is a solid pass defender, but he is best at stepping into the box and playing against the run right behind the line of scrimmage. He is both a hard hitter and a sure tackler. One minor red flag is a torn pectoral muscle that hampered him in the 2010 season finale against Auburn, but Barron is fine now. Barring any setbacks or a surprisingly poor performance at the combine, Barron should be off the board in the first round of the upcoming draft and could be the first safety taken.
