Another Small School Wideout for Jags?
Barnes has a similar game to that of the Jaguars fifth-round pick from a year ago, Jarett Dillard. Barnes runs excellent routes, has great hands and knows how to score.
"I think my production in college speaks for itself," said the record-setting former Bowling Green wideout. "I know how to play the game."
Measureables: 6'0", 210 lbs., 24 years old.
Statistics: As a senior in 2009, Barnes caught an FBS record 155 passes for 1,770 yards and 19 touchdowns, as well as rushing for two more scores. His record-setting campaign earned him All-American status by the AP as well as Biletnikoff Award Finalist honors. In his final collegiate game at the Humanitarian Bowl, Barnes caught 17 passes for 219 yards and three scores.
Scouting Report: Barnes lacks elite speed at the wide receiver position, but he has fantastic hands and great route-running ability. He projects as a slot receiver on the next level.
Barnes is currently projected as a mid-round pick primarily based on what he will run at the combine and how well he will do catching passes from someone other than his own quarterback.
