2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Barry Church, SS, Toledo
Few players anywhere have as much experience as Barry Church. The 6-2 safety has started at Toledo for four years without missing a game. He is also just the second player in Rocket history to earn first-team All-MAC honors in four consecutive seasons. Church has been slowly improving with every season, but it was during his freshman campaign in 2006 when he made a big splash. During that season he totaled 71 tackles, but he also intercepted four passes and returned two of them for touchdowns -- including one in dramatic fashion in the fourth quarter against Kansas which led to an overtime victory. Church continued to improve in 2007 and tallied 92 tackles and picked off three passes. In 2008 the numbers were equally impressive with 93 total tackles and three forced fumbles. It was no surprise that Church was a consistent presence in the secondary during his senior campaign. On the year he tallied 98 tackles, 8.5 tackles-for-loss, 2.5 sacks and one interception. What makes Church an interesting NFL prospect is his versatility. He can get into the backfield in a hurry or help out in coverage. That means he could play strong safety or outside linebacker in the NFL, but that will not be enough to make him more than a third or fourth round selection.
