Barner the burner. That could very well wind up being Barner’s nickname if it isn’t already, because this kid has speed to burn. I love that despite his small-ish size, he runs hard every play and he fights for every yard. When he gets into the open field, he is nearly impossible to track down. This is a guy who is averaging over six yards per carry three straight years as a backup to LaMichael James, and I don’t think he will declare in 2012 because he will have a shot to potentially be the featured back next season. In 2012 on limited carries and reps in the passing game, he has scored 13 total touchdowns offensively. When he gets to the next level, he’s going to have to prove that he can take a beating and will likely be part of a dual-backfield. Has had four games in 2011 with more than 100 yards rushing despite being the backup and has filled in admirably for LaMichael James in his absence. Very good receiving threat with a ton of speed and quickness, great vision with the football.
