I have been away from the board for a while and haven't read much draft news . I am surprised to see Mark Barron as a potential pick at 14 . What has happened ? It was only a month ago that Barron was a second round prospect . Is there some new game film or combine numbers pushing him up draft boards ? No, it isn't . Looks like people are thinking that the top safety in this very poor class will be some big improvement . Barron just doesn't stink as bad as the other safety prospects . This doesn't translate to him being a legit first round talent . Barron can not cover the deep pass . Is this really the safety that the Cowboys need in todays pass-happy NFL ? I have read that he would have been graded between Allen and Burnett in the 2010 draft class , well behind Thomas and Berry . Let's face it , this is not the second coming of Ed Reed . Nothing has changed with Barron . Why the love ? What has changed ?
