Mark Barron Injured
 
Heard on Twitter this morning that he has a double sports hernia, out until July or August. Wonder how this affects his draft status.

Would have to, elite guys can usually miss the whole draft process without much downfall but dont think Barron is in that class.

I think it hurts his potential to go higher in the draft but I still believe his floor will be late first/early second.

If he had gone to the combine and run 4.4s and looked great he could have been a top 15 selection. That's just not going to happen now.

Early 3rd rounder.

bruschis4all 02-07-2012 01:45 PM

Do we have a link to anything?

Jetsfan726 02-07-2012 02:05 PM

I think that the Jets are jumping through hoops excited right now...We can still nab Mark Barron, but take him in the second round. Allowing us to grab a pass rusher in the first...

Shane P. Hallam 02-07-2012 02:08 PM

Nothing is confirmed yet. I'd say wait for confirmation before speculating.

Cough.cough....Belichick will trade down from 31 to about 40 and snag him.

Still the top safety in the draft by far.

If he has surgery soon, it should only be a 2-3 week delay in training. I don't see how it'd be out that long unless he doesn't have surgery

mmmmm third round to the steelers...

Make it happen

Yeah really the gap between him and the next best safety is ridiculous compared to the other positions in the draft...even QB.

Scott Wright 02-07-2012 05:21 PM

Barron is still going in the first round, probably the Top 20 overall.

Hines 02-07-2012 05:24 PM

Yeah, didn't Heath Miller have a same type of injury? I mean he fell, but not out of the first. Have to think Barron is in the same boat.

But speculation is the best part.

I think this guarantees that no safety goes in round 1 this year, unless you count Dre Kirkpatrick.

edit: Personally, I don't see what's special about Barron enough to spend a first rounder on him.

RaiderNation 02-07-2012 06:12 PM

I still think the Bengals will look at him at either 17 or 21 to upgrade over Crocker at SS.

holt_bruce81 02-07-2012 06:28 PM

He's still a top 40 pick. LOL at people thinking he'll fall to the 3rd.

Caddy 02-07-2012 06:38 PM

If reports are true, it's not like he tore an ACL... A sports hernia is nothing major.

ChiFan24 02-07-2012 06:47 PM

I don't really get the Mark Barron love. I think this gives Harrison Smith a chance to challenge him as a the #1 safety.

the_dark_knight 02-07-2012 07:22 PM

In my opinion Harrison Smith is already the top Safety. I was hoping to get him for the Falcons in round 3, I really like the way he plays the position.

Shane P. Hallam 02-07-2012 08:43 PM

Yeah, I don't think a sports hernia would take NEAR that long anyway. I have a feeling we still see him at the combine either way.

Big Bird 02-07-2012 11:43 PM

I really don't understand why Mark Barron is regarded as a 1st Rounder. Barron is a good athlete and solid all-around player, but he is far from special. I see his coverage abilities are average, his play recognition as average, and his ability against the run as below average (Barron really struggles to shed blocks downfield).

I know this safety class sucks, but don't let's not get desperate. Safety isn't that huge of a priority for NFL teams. There is no way he, nor any other safety, goes in the 1st Round. It's not a position for massive desperation.

+1 he's good, but he's not ed reed. always been a 2nd rounder, even without the injury. he's a great SS not a FS. if the injury is true he could go 3rd or even later. No one wants a player who can't go until August.

A Perfect Score 02-08-2012 11:48 AM

Haha there is no way he falls to the third. That's absolutely ridiculous. With the dramatic shift in the effectiveness and athleticism of TE's in the NFL, elite safeties are going to be at a premium in the coming years. Teams struggle putting a traditional LB or S on a Jimmy Graham or a Rob Gronkowski, so what's the solution? Draft a highly athletic, physically imposing player to man up on those TE's. Whether he is or he isn't that player, Barron will be drafted highly with the notion in mind that he can man up on the plurality of hyperathletic TE's which just had their way with the middle of the field this year in the NFL.

I'm not sure he goes Top 20, but I have a really hard time seeing him outside of the first round.
