He is just a rookie and the being a TE in collage and one in the NFL is a big step. He is playing ST and thats the first step in being a starter. King is the best a both blocking and receiving right now and thats why we see him so much but I will go out on a limb and say Barnidge will move ahead of Rosario because of his blocking next year sometime cause Rosario is horrible at it.

For the most part, Barnidge has done a solid job blocking all year. The reason he's not getting much burn on offense is that he has two solid guys in front of him. So, unless one of the other guys got injured or just stunk it up during the season (which neither did), Barnidge was never going to get on the field much on offense. He's going to have to earn it in TC and the pre-season next year (his injury in this year's camp hurt his chances as well).

With that said, theire is potential for him next year. While both King and Rosario are solid, neither are great, so with a strong off-season, it is possible Barnidge could leapfrog one or both. Will he? Who knows, but at this point it is far too premature to make any kind of realistic judgement on him.

Oh, and as for the statement of him long snapping, sure it's possible. However, despite him being listed as one pre-draft, he wasn't really a long snapper in college. He never even did it in a real game, he was just the backup/emergency LS.
