Nick Saban talks about prospective draft picks
|Alabama coach Nick Saban talks about the draft prospects coming out of his program, how they could potentially help the Cowboys, his discussions with Jason Garrett and more. |
"Mark is a really good person, mature, respected by his teammates," Saban said.
There is some concern that Barron can only cover tight ends and not wide receivers. In the NFC East where three and four receiver sets are common place among the divisional rivals when they face each other.
Saban sees no problem with this noting, "not going to be a size mismatch."
Saban also likes the face Barron can play both safety spots and even specials teams. "He's got the right stuff to play a long time," Saban said.
Here's the complete interview.
