2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select Mark Barron, S, Alabama
6’1″ 215 lbs. Mobile, Alabama October 27, 1989
College Career: 149 solo, 88 assists, 5 sacks, 34 pass deflections, 12 INTS 145 yards, 12 forced fumbles
Barron is going to play cornerback for the Bucs and it is much needed as Ronde Barber is getting up there in age. They said there were not that many solid safety prospects in this draft, but with the expected move to cornerback, it just makes one less.
The Bucs will pair him up with Aquib Talib and hope that they have a solid unit in the back end for years to come.
Barron was a semi finalist for the Thorpe Award and a quarterfinalist for the Lott Trophy
