Mark Barron Elite RookieOctober 3rd, 2012
The Redskins loss was a gut-puncher but Daniel Jeremiah believes Bucs fans have something to look forward to on football Sundays.
Jeremiah, a must-follow on Twitter who goes by the handle of “@MoveTheSticks,” is a former scout for the Ravens, Browns and Eagles and currently works for NFL.com and the NFL Network. His Twitter feed offers some of the most intelligent football analysis you will find.
Browsing through NFL rookies, Jeremiah likes no defensive rookie better than the Bucs Mark Barron.
@MoveTheSticks: TB safety Mark Barron has been the most impressive rookie defender that I’ve watched so far this season. Love how physical he plays!!
Jeremiah is right, Barron is already a beast. Joe still thinks it was appalling he got flagged for unnecessary roughness for a perfect form-fitting tackle Sunday, and let us not forget how he popped Robert Griffin III so hard once he sprung the ball loose.
The way Barron is playing, he may very well be Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik’s best draft pick in four years.
