    Allen Barbre
    OT | (6'4", 300, 4.84) | MISSOURI SOUTHERN

    Strengths: Shows a quick first step and can beat defenders to the point of attack. Plays with a mean streak and works to the whistle. Takes sound angles to blocks, generally plays under control in space and can get into position at the second level. Shows good range, can get around the corner when asked to pull and is big enough to engulf linebackers. Shows good lateral mobility when run blocking ands can reach defenders lined up outside him. Gets into pass set quickly and can ride edge rushers past the pocket when extends arms.

    Weaknesses: Plays with a narrow base, loses balance at times and has some problems sustaining blocks. Lacks ideal lower body strength, frequently plays too high and is going to have problems driving defenders off the ball. While has quick feet and flashes the ability to redirect in pass protection footwork is somewhat inconsistent, struggles to change directions quickly and is vulnerable to double moves. Bends at the waist rather than the knees and can get pushed back into the pocket. Played at a small school and there is some concern about ability to make the jump to the NFL.

    Overall: Babre began the 2003 campaign as a reserve but moved into the starting lineup for the final six contests of his true freshman season, including the last five games at left tackle. In 2004, he did not play in the season opener and did not start the second game, but then regained his starting job for the rest of the year. Babre started all 10 games at left tackle in 2005 and was named to the All-MIAA first-team. In 2006, Barbre once again started every game (11) at left tackle earning multiple Division II All-American accolades.

    Barbre is a small-school prospect who has the natural ability to develop into a contributor at guard and/or tackle in the NFL. He is a bit undersized and has the mobility to fit a scheme such as the Colts or Broncos. That said; he needs to get stronger at the point of attack and refine his technique. Following a tremendous showing at the combine, Barbre projects as an early-Day 2 pick.

    Looks like a solid zone blocking scheme tackle. Nice pick considering Colledge was backing up LT.

    Well at least he is a LT, and given Clifton's recent shot knees, it is something we needed.

    Ok, I don't hate this pick BUT what the hell are we drafting depth for? Draft Depth with one of you 27 7th rounders. WE could haves used a TE and Patrick was there

    Maybe they don't think Patrick is the TE they need, maybe they have a different TE in sight.

    Maybe the plan is to push Clifton out the door next year. That way we can get more cap space and try to lead the league in something.

    Guys, only 3 TEs have gone through 4 rounds. There aren't that many highly rated guys and the guys left are one big bunch. Getting a legit LT backup is well worth a late 4th considering we had nothing after Clifton.

    Depends on the position. If you draft a TE, FB, P, K, then they better not be depth. If you draft on OL, then yes, probably depth.

    According to Gil Brandt:


    I gotta admit, that is impressive.

    I'm pretty sure he is already faster than Bubba.

    Division II competitor that seems to be a good athlete.

    Remember McCarthy is high on Josh Bourke to backup Clifton.

    It may not be listed here but he is a criminal justice major. That would explain why the Vikings or Bengals did not look at him. :rotflmao:
