BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who led the team in tackles last season with 100 and was awarded All-Conference honors. Junior-year totals included 74 tackles and four interceptions. Father Marion Jr. played with the New York Jets while brother Marion III is presently on the Dallas Cowboys.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized safety who.s at his best defending the run. Quick up the field, displays a burst of speed, and makes a lot of tackles. Adequate cover skills in zone.
NEGATIVES: Shows a lot of hesitation to his game and late arriving on the scene in deep pass coverage. Takes poor angles to the action and not efficient. Marginal instincts.
ANALYSIS: Barber is a one-dimensional defender with limited upside. He is a special teams player at the next level who must be placed in a zone system.
