Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s effective in pursuit when chasing down backs as a run defender, and Baron has the athleticism to cover a lot of ground when dropping into coverage.
  • Does a nice job locating the ball and sticking with the play while working off blocks. Physical finisher.
  • Quick to read run, showing good agility and speed to get past blockers and finish. Experienced in coverage and gets a strong jam on outside receivers.
  • Baron has the fluid movement skills and speed to turn and run in coverage against tight ends.
  • Physical at the point of attack and works hard to shed blocks. Enjoys contact and is a forceful tackler. Effective blitzer with the speed to reach the backfield and create backside pressure.
  • Covers a lot of area in zone coverage and uses his long frame to defend passes. Good athlete for his frame.
  • Good all-around athlete with very good short-area quickness and fluidity. Very good playing strength and has worked hard in the weight room, adding bulk and filling out his frame.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Plays upright. Ducks his head and fails to wrap up at times. Inconsistent in giving full effort to be the second man in on the play. Must learn to use hands to beat blocks.
  • He’s perfectly capable of converting speed into power when Baron gets to the ball, but too often he slips off tackles or turns into a grab-and-drag tackler rather than a hitter, failing to keep his legs driving through the hit.
  • Builds to top speed and must take the right line to beat backs to the edge.
