2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CODY BARTON: Utah, 6024 237 4.62. One year starter from Salt Lake City, UT. Has experience outside and inside and was a sub-package player for two years prior to full time starter in 2018. Quick initial read and react. Decisive in movements. Gets downhill and uses his hands to keep blockers at bay. Has some power with his punch and can get off blocks on the move. Can be sudden to scrape to the off-tackle gap and square up and tackle. Shows decent range in pursuit and is consistent to tackle in space. Bends his knees and is patient to drive through the ball carrier. Has experience in a variety of coverage and has been effective covering backs in the flat. As a zone defender, backpedals into his drop keeping his eyes working from quarterback to receivers threatening his zone. Has a knack for getting in the throwing lane and gets to a lot of balls. No wasted steps changing direction. He keeps coming and makes plays chasing downfield. Has some trouble gathering when coming from top speed in chase mode. Has been a solid special team player on coverage units and will contribute at the next level. Overall he is a smart, high effort player who still has upside as only a one year starter. He could develop into an NFL starter in the right scheme. 2018 stats: 116 T, 10.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 6 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 FF, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 2.21, right 2.06. OSR:2/ 12. Fifth/sixth round.
