Draft Profile: Bio
Tyler Baron from Knoxville Catholic High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Baron joined Tennessee after being heavily recruited.

In 2020 as a freshman Baron saw action in 10 games and played a total of 250 snaps for the Volunteers. He recorded 16 tackles, 3 assists, while adding 12 stops. As a pass rusher, he added 3 total pressures, which included 2 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack on the season.

As a sophomore for the Volunteers in 2021 Baron played in 13 games and took part in 433 snaps for the Volunteers. He recorded 11 tackles, 11 assists, while adding 9 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 32 total pressures, and 23 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and 6 sacks during the year.

In 2022 as a junior Baron played in 12 games and contributed on 391 snaps. He recorded 14 tackles, 2 assists while making 12 stops. As a pass rusher, he produced 27 total pressures, which included 19 QB hurries, 5 QB hits, and 3 sacks on the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Baron has the strong core and powerful hands to shed blockers, and Baron shows excellent instincts with the ability to quickly locate the ball.
  • His spin move is already NFL-caliber, and he displays a very good motor.
  • He has ideal length as an edge rusher, with room to add more weight onto his frame.
  • Baron has the classic frame and long arms with some explosion, power and ability to close.
  • As a pass rusher, he shows quickness off the line and has the fluid athleticism and flexibility to bend the edge.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Baron struggles to shed blockers and doesn’t show ideal lateral movement skills. He also needs to make better use of his length and hands in the pass rush.
  • While Baron has violent hands, he uses them too inconsistently. Baron tends to let blockers get into his chest, and he’ll waste time hand fighting due to a limited array of pass rush moves.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.

*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.
