Barber went from depth option to lead role after Doug Martin flopped, and for the second straight year Barber showed why he's not particularly well suited for the role. He has the frame and low pad level to bang out yards between the tackles, but he doesn't have the speed, burst or elusiveness to do much damage on the rare occasions when he does make it to the second level, and he hasn't shown any ability to catch passes. The Bucs drafted Ronald Jones II in the second round and will give the rookie every chance to cement his spot at the top of the depth chart, but Barber's skill set could allow him to hang onto a role as the team's short-yardage and goal-line back in an effort to save the 205-pound Jones from unnecessary punishment.

Ahead of Jones so far

August 13, 2018
Barber has an early edge for the starting job over Ronald Jones, Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times reports. "Peyton is our starter," Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said Monday. "We're definitely going to use Ronald Jones and take advantage of what he's going to do. We do have the two veteran backs behind him. Again, we've got three more preseason games. Let's just let it sort out a little more."

  2. Peyton Barber 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Barber exceeded expectations in 2016, making the practice squad out of preseason and then receiving a promotion to the active roster just before regular-season opener. After exclusively playing special teams in the first four weeks, injuries to Doug Martin and Charles Sims eventually led to double-digit carries for Barber in three contests overall, and he finished the season with 223 rushing yards (4.1 yards per rush) and one touchdown in 15 games. The undrafted second-year man survived roster cutdown day, presumably due to his ability to contribute on special teams. He'll probably need a wave of injuries in front of him to have a meaningful role on offense.
  3. Peyton Barber 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The undrafted free agent out of Auburn was an early entrant into the 2016 draft, after amassing 1,128 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns during his sophomore 2015 campaign. As with any non-drafted player, Barber faces fairly long odds to make the final roster. However, with his competition for a third tailback role presently consisting of the solid but unremarkable duo of Mike James and Storm Johnson, the 22-year-old could conceivably catch the eye of coaches with a strong camp and preseason.

Still expected to have sizable role in '18
RBTampa Bay Buccaneers
June 4, 2018
Despite the Bucs utilizing a second-round selection on Ronald Jones II, Barber's diverse skill set is projected to afford him a consistent role in the coming season, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "I think he has a high ceiling," said Buccaneers running backs coach Tim Spencer. "Peyton can catch the ball and he can run routes even though he is a good-sized back. I like the way he runs, I like his attitude, I like the way he's learning and being able to pick up things."
