2012 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
Barron racked up 169 stops and started 26 games for the Crimson Tide in his career.
Expected draft placement
Barron has first-round talent, but it may be difficult finding a team willing to pay for his services, especially if he cannot participate in drills before the draft.
The Detroit Lions (No. 23), New York Jets (No. 16) and Dallas Cowboys (No. 14) all need a starting-caliber player at the position, but it seems unlikely the latter two teams will reach for Barron in the first round. Perhaps one of these three franchises will trade into the top of the second round for him.
