Martin is faster, better in coverage and a bigger hitter.
The truth however is that Barron is the top rated S available in the draft. I realize that things are slow and we fans need something to talk about. But how Barron stacks up against Ss two years ago is irrelevant. How Barron stacks up against the other players in this draft like DeCastro and Cox, etc. is very relevant. Barron might not be the top S in the NFL, but he will definitely make our secondary much better. My wish and hope are: DeCastro, Cox or Barron.
Anyone of these guys will make the team better.
