Biography: Three-year starter who spent the majority of his time at right tackle.
Positives: Large small school lineman who blocks with leverage and moves his feet well. Quickly sets up off the snap, sets with a wide base and displays the ability to adjust. Bends his knees, keeps his feet moving and displays solid lateral blocking range. Effectively slides out in pass protection, makes good use of angles and stays square. Better than average skills if asked to pull across the line of scrimmage and block in motion. Gets his hands into defenders and keeps them away.
Negatives: Lacks a dominant base for such a large lineman and gets pushed back off the ball. Does not play a powerful game.
Analysis: Barbiasz is a fairly athletic lineman with terrific size and skills in pass protection. He offers growth potential and is a practice squad player who will need to spend a year in an NFL weight training program before he's ready for the next level.
