The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made their first-round selection in Mark Barron, taking the safety out of Alabama after trading down. They got a fourth-round pick from the Jacksonville Jaguars to trade back two spots, passing on cornerback Morris Claiborne in the process. Barron figures to be a strong safety for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the versatile Alabama product can do anything asked of him. His best attribute may be his ability to play man-to-man on tight ends and slot receivers, but he should be a great fit as an in-the-box, run-stuffing safety as well.

But, give us your opinion on Mark Barron. Was he the right guy for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Was the fourth-rounder they received from the Jaguars enough to trade down two spots? Should they have picked Luke Kuechly instead? Should they have stayed put and taken Morris Claiborne? Should they have traded back even further? Or should they have done something else entirely? Let us know in the poll and the comments!
