Barron will make debut tonight in Bucs matchup against Tennessee

Mark Barron, the Tampa Bay Bucs heralded first round draft makes his NFL debut tonight at Raymond James Stadium agianst the Tennessee Titans.

The safety from Alabama sat out the pre-season opener last week against Miami because of a toe injury, but says he is ready to go full speed tonight. Barron said he has a good understanding of the defense despite missing some practices.

The 6-1, 215 pound Barron was selected seventh overall in this year's draft because of his reputation as a hard hitter, which new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano was needed to help a team that collapsed at the end of last year and looked soft.
