Charles Davis Has Us Picking Mark Barron

16 posts in this topic

I respect this guy, he usually speaks with logic and a great understanding of the game. I understand his point of View. I never thought about this guy. Mainly because we've signed a couple of safeties.

Mark Barron? This high?

He's rated very highly as a prospect, some consider him the best defensive back in the draft. While taking a safety in the top 10 isn't usually the modus operandi for a lot of teams, I think it might be a good idea since there happen to be a lot of very good tight ends that we are going to be up against on a regular basis.

Wouldn't mind. Just don't know how good he can or will be. If he's anything like a Ed Reed or polamalu or anything close then I say hell yes. But those kind of safeties don't grow on trees ya know.

I've never respected Charles Davis' opinion. He always comes across as simple and doesn't put any real thought into what he says. He and Charlie Casserly are probably the worst two major TV analysts, in my opinion.

On this idea, Barron in the top 10?? Doesn't make sense. The last Safety taken in the top 10 was a "once in a generation" type Safety, Eric Berry. Barron ain't Berry. I could possibly see Dallas pulling the trigger on Barron, but Safeties are like RBs and non pass rushing LBs. Their position value doesn't warrant such high draft picks and Barron doesn't seem to be such a superstar that he's worth overdrafting his position. He seems like he'll be good, but not a superstar like Eric Berry seemed (and still seems, discounting the year on IR) he'd be.

I've never seen him play but have heard so many people compare him to Ed Reed. If he is a Ed Reed or Troy Polamala I'd love him. I'd only want him in a trade down scenario. He is like my #5 or 6 favorite for us

What slot has he been projected to go in most mocks?

Until this week, early 2nd with a very few projections in the late 1st. I've thought all along he'd be a Steeler in the 1st, as Polomalu's soon to be needed replacement. Might not make it that far with all this hype though.

If Coples is there, we're taking him.

I wouldnt mind Barron- probably as much of smoke screen to get Dallas or SD to try to move up.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
