Tim Barnes
Position: C
Class:  5Sr
School: Missouri
Conference: Big 12
HT: 6-3.5
WT: 297
40 Time: 5.15
Biography: Full-time starter the past three seasons and awarded all-Conference honors as a senior.

Positives: "Tough, strong, small-area blocker who's been productive and durable on the college level. Blocks with good lean, keeps his feet moving, and immediately gets his hands into defenders. Anchors in pass protection, stays square, and turns defenders off the line as a run blocker. Blocks with a nasty attitude, keeps his head on a swivel, and does a terrific job leading the offensive line. Displays better-than-average footwork in space and bends his knees."

Negatives: "Lacks agility, overall blocking balance and struggles in motion. Stiff as a blocker, which hurts his ability to finish blocks."

Analysis: Barnes is one of the most underrated centers in April's draft and possesses the football skills to play and eventually start at the next level. He should only improve as a physically matures and irons out the rough edges of his game.

Projection: 4th
