Scouting Report on Mark Barnes

by JC Shurburtt - 06/19/2006
Has good size and explosiveness. Runs very good routes and has good hands. Very quick off the ball and handles physical defensive backs well because of his own physicality. Lacks a ton of game experience with the ball in his hands because he doesn’t play in a passing offense in high school. Loves to play the game and is an intense competitor. Also plays defense and is an outstanding safety prospect with big-time ball skills and range.
