Despite some pretty egregious errors last week, Len Pasquarelli's version of the NFP Sunday Blitz is still worth a read. Along with a classy apology for last week's errors, he also has some views on Mark Barron this week. Tampa Bay coaches feel that second-year strong safety Mark Barron, who started all 16 games in 2012 but had only one interception, will make a big leap in 2013, given the presence of free agent safety Dashon Goldson, the revamping of the secondary in general, and the experience with which the former Alabama star will enter the campaign. The Bucs were far from disappointed in Barron last year, but feel that he will become an even more accomplished big-play defender in his second go-around. Barron actually started last season very, very strongly. When the Bucs still had multiple starting-quality cornerbacks and Ronde Barber could mostly stay deep. He jumped off the tape early on, collecting 7 tackles and 1 pass dfensed on average over his first six games.
Buccaneers expect Mark Barron to make a big leap in 2013
