RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Itís risky to rank a rookie this high, but Barron looks set to deliver in 2012. The below-average Sean Jones totaled 92 tackles (76 solo) as Tampa Bayís starting strong safety in 2011, and Barron should be an immediate and significant upgrade. With a strong safety skill set but free safety athleticism, Barron will be a three-down player for the Buccaneers, and the Tampa secondary should see a lot of tackle opportunities both due to a potentially weak front four and divisional opponents that throw the ball with great frequency. Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton attempted the second, seventh and 13th-most passes in the league last year, respectively, meaning the ball will be in Barronís region often. With a big wingspan (33 5/8-inch arms) and the ability to make plays on the ball (12 interceptions in his final three years at Alabama), Barron should pull in a few interceptions to complement his tackle production.
