Summary

A fixture at strong safety for the Bucs in his first two seasons, Mark Barron has shown us more than enough to be trusted as a high-end DB2, if not DB1. The arrival of Lovie Smith as head coach will likely mean a shift to more classic Tampa-2 looks, but the former Bears coach is not shy to mix it up as well with single-high looks, incorporating Barron as a roaming box safety. As such, Barron should see ample tackle opportunity and can easily reproduce his 70-20 tackle count from 2013. (May 13)

Buccaneers | Mark Barron still mending (Sun Jul 27, 05:59 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers S Mark Barron (knee) said he's not 100 percent after arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage in his right knee in January.

Our View: Barron may not be close to 100 percent until January of 2015. He's a hard-hitting safety with a nose for the ball. The plan is to have him as near full strength as possible for the start of the regular season.
