I'm starting to warm up to the idea of taking barron in the first. He is very good at what he does.

He is a solid run defender. 3 time All-SEC player coached by a great defensive backs coach in Nick Saban.
Barron is very good on short throws, much like Quin. When you can limit short throws to smaller gains, you take away alot of what teams do. He has 12 interceptions on his career and has proven to have an eye for the ball, so I don't know where this stigma of a one-trick pony comes from. Sure he isn't going to man up on receivers like an Ed Reed, but he is still a versatile player.
You mean the #1, #3, and #4 defenses from last year?
