Sam Barrington is probably the last Bull in this year's senior class with a realistic shot of getting drafted. Most mock drafts that I've seen don't have Sam getting picked, but he's generally regarded as a late-round prospect who might sneak his way onto the board.

Here are Sam's measurables:

Position: Linebacker
Height/Weight: 6'1", 246 lbs.
40 Time: 4.91 at the combine, 4.69 at USF's pro day. Noticing a trend here?
Stats: Started 36 games over four seasons, including all but two games the last three seasons. 80 tackles, 6.5 TFL and 3.5 sacks in 2012, all career highs.

I think USF fans may have been a little spoiled when it came to Sam. The Bulls have had some big-time players at linebacker in their short history (Kawika Mitchell, Stephen Nicholas, Ben Moffitt, Tyrone McKenzie, Jacquian Williams, etc.), so when Jim Leavitt called Sam, then a three-star freshman, the best linebacker he'd ever seen, everyone had pretty high expectations for him.

Sam was certainly not the best linebacker in USF history, but he had a very productive career. He got on the field as a true freshman and grabbed the full-time starting role as a sophomore. He was versatile, bouncing between inside and outside linebacker at Skip Holtz's whim, but no matter where he was on the field he was always a leader on the Bulls' defense.

Sam had a knack for the big play (off the top of my head I can remember his forced fumble at the goal line against Nevada, his pick six to put away to UTEP game, and his forced fumble against West Virginia that almost won us the game. Man, we didn't win many games the last couple seasons, did we?) because he was built for it. He's an athletic, instinctive player who can just as easily cause havoc in the backfield as he can drop into coverage. He was a little small over his USF career, listed at 230 pounds, but he weighed in at 246 at the combine, which is certainly a good sign.

But I can't say he was always productive, because he wasn't. Sam can disappear for large chunks of games, and for all his talent, never really turned into the tackling machine that he could have been. When you heard Sam's name mentioned, it was usually a good sign-but you could go a whole game without hearing his name.

For what it's worth, Sam was also plagued by minor violations and suspensions throughout his career. Usually nothing more serious than driving-with-an-expired-license level, but it happened multiple times and caused him to miss multiple games. It's not a huge deal, but it's not something Bulls fans liked to see out of their senior leader in a season where they really needed any playmaker they had on the field.

I personally don't see Sam getting drafted, and I don't think most "experts" do either. But there are much worse players to take a late-round flyer on than Sam Barrington. He's an athlete and a playmaker who's seen substantial action at both linebacker positions. Most players with his kind of talent haven't put up his kind of numbers, and the few that have probably won't be available, as he will be, in the late rounds.

Hmmm. This kid is intriguing. We've made worse last picks.

Barrington, Sam OLB 6'1" 246 South Florida


Here he's listed as ILB:

Quote:
He does not have the speed to stay with TEs in man coverage, and in transition shows limited change of direction ability and cannot accelerate effectively to close once beaten off the break. His poor speed and explosion also limits his effectiveness on outside run plays, thus he will likely be limited to playing ILB for a 30 front at the next level.


Another LB who can't cover. meh

Solid player. Don't look into those 40 times. They don't mean anything. It looks like he has plenty of speed on the field. Good pick for our last of the draft.

Wow! Even this kid has all the stuff we've been looking for on defense. Size, speed, instincts and incredible tackling ability.

Honestly, the players we've added look to be of another level of talent altogether than many we have drafted previously. As a collective group, both drafted players and UDFAs, this 2013 class stands out in every aspect of the game at their respective positions. I am really impressed by the depth of Ted Thompson's scouting. His department really went all out this year.

The level of play is different in the NFL, and a lot of these players are from smaller schools, but I could easily see a player like Sam Barrington making a regular starter expendable. This from the 7th Round... Our camp battles are going to be insane this year, and many vets will have to fight hard to keep their positions on this Packers team.

What needs to be mentioned and highlighted.. is that these are "highlight" tapes of all these prospects.. you are only seeing a slight glimpse of their overall game. It is how they play over the term that really matters.. I could put together a highlight tape to make say Colledge look like a pro bowl guard.. but that would be ignoring the other 99 % of his game.

I agree but really it's all that we've got to look forward too. If you think about it every player even in the NFL is the same way. You can look at all their highlights of their domination but if you really look at a player for a full game they're not always dominate for a full 60 mins.

I'll say this I've watched some of the best players in this draft like full game highlights against schools and sometimes I'm like, is he really a 1st rounder? Datone Jones sometimes didn't flash off the screen to me but when he was on his game he was.

I had this guy marked as too slow. If he can cover then he has a chance to make the team.
