Mid-Level Starter Potential
Barton is a highly experienced and consistent offensive lineman with the potential to become a solid, dependable starter right away at guard or center in the NFL. His ability to create rush lanes and effectively anchor against bull rushers, combined with his leadership and work ethic, makes him a valuable asset. However, he needs to improve in pass protection and avoid overextending in his play to excel at the professional level.
PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT
Graham Barton is a versatile and experienced offensive lineman who has shown proficiency in both run blocking and pass protection. He excels in a zone-based run scheme due to his good quickness, hand placement, and ability to sustain and steer blocks. His play strength and competitive toughness suggest he could transition well to guard or center in a multiple run scheme. However, his pass protection skills, particularly against twists and stunts, need refinement. His ability to deal with space on an island at tackle is somewhat shaky due to his arm length and inconsistent strike timing.
