BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Played seven games with the first team as a freshman.
POSITIVES: Strong small-area blocker with potential at tackle and guard. Patient, makes good use of angles, and controls opponents at the point. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Keeps his head on a swivel and shows good awareness.
NEGATIVES: Displays limited blocking range and struggles off the line. Not a natural knee-bender. Bends at the waist, lacks flexibility, and struggles to finish blocks.
ANALYSIS: Barton is an intelligent and hard-working prospect with limited upside potential. He could offer teams an option as a backup player on the strong side.
