CBS Sports Dane Brugler believes that "scouts need to see development" from Penn State redshirt junior DE Deion Barnes for him "to be the highly touted pro prospect."
"He did show improved football awareness with accurate reads to recognize what the offense was doing and react accordingly. NFL teams draft traits, skills and potential over college production, but scouts need to see development, which usually means improved stats, for Barnes to be the highly touted pro prospect that many thought he could be after his freshman season," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-4, 255 pound DE earned Freshman All-American honors in 2012, however as a sophomore, Barnes failed to excel managing only 28 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks in 10 starts. Moving forward, Barnes will need to be productive in his junior year to improve his draft stock. Aug 4 - 4:43 PM

Penn State beat writer Bob Flounders believes redshirt sophomore pass rusher Deion Barnes could be the school's X-factor this season.

Barnes tallied 10 tackles for loss, including six sacks and three forced fumbles in 2012. "He is the key to PSU's pass rush and he also has a knack for forcing opponents to turn the ball over," Flounders writes. The team's defense is quite young, but Barnes has a chance to grow along with it.
