Last night on MCM Radio (posted after the jump), we talked a lot about the funny movement that guys have during the draft season. Mark Barron is a perfect example of that. He was a lock to be picked early in the first round when people first started looking at prospects back in January.

Then he had the hernia surgery. People started to talk about him dropping out of the first round completely because of health issues or problems with his coverage. While Barron is never going to be Ed Reed, he also will not be a liability in coverage.

Now everyone is back to talking about how high he will get picked in the first round. Last night PFT had a report that the Bills were talking about taking him at #10. That would make sense because he would help cover those tight ends in New England.

The bottom line is that in today's NFL you have to be solid in the secondary. Barron is a hot commodity in a draft that is extremely weak at safety. Don't be surprised to see him off the board well before the middle of the first round.
