Mickey Plyler on Tavaris Barnes: "Barnes is an effort guy. He has a great first step. This is an example of a prospect that worked his way into a four-star rating. I did not see him earlier in his high school career but his coaches say he worked his way into a ton of offers. He is a guy who can play defensive end early but might grow into an athletic defensive tackle. It is rare to go into Jacksonville and steal a guy that is committed to FSU."
