Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Has the body type desired at the position with excellent length and the frame that can be sculpted with more time in the weight room. Barnes is a coordinated athlete with flexibility and movements that allow him to cover a large area. He did show improved football awareness with accurate reads to recognize what the offense was doing and react accordingly.

WEAKNESSES: Mechanics and pass rush process seemed to stall on his 2013 tape, showing little improvement in this area. NFL teams draft traits, skills and potential over college production, but scouts need to see development, which usually means improved stats, for Barnes to be the highly touted pro prospect that many thought he could be after his freshman season.

--Dane Brugler (8/4/14)

Player Overview

After earning Freshman All-American honors in 2012, Barnes entered the 2013 season with high expectations, but the sophomore struggled to live up to the hype as he managed only 28 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks in 10 starts.

The decline in performance and production could be attributed to several areas, including members of the coaching staff hinting that teams game-planned for him last year. But whatever the reason, Barnes needs to bounce back in 2014.
