Strengths: Barron has the potential to be an elite in-the-box safety. He is a physical tackler that consistently takes good angles to the ball from the secondary. He will be competitive in man coverage and should be able to hold his own in zone. The relative weakness of the Tampa front seven could give him lots of tackle opportunity.

Weaknesses: Despite his draft position, Barron isn't an elite two-way safety in the mold of Eric Berry or Earl Thomas. He may struggle to cover the deep sideline and deep half in zone coverage schemes.
