Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Shows good instincts when facing the action in zone coverage, and Barron has solid ball skills.
  • Great on route recognition and has click-and-close ability
  • Can get up on the line of scrimmage and deliver a solid punch early in routes, then use that quickness to shadow, or back off and close quickly when the ball comes out
  • Barron has good size and is a fluid mover, capable of mirroring quickness underneath
  • Can track the ball downfield and gets his head around when playing in a trail position, and he shows excellent ball skills when breaking on a route. He’s a plus tackler in run support as well.
  • He’s also very good in zone coverage, showing a great understanding of routes and the ability to close quickly.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • Barron runs well, but Barron doesn’t have elite recovery speed.
  • The majority of the time last season, he was able to physically overwhelm opposing receivers early in the down, a scenario that won’t play out as often against NFL receivers.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
