Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named First Team All-Big Ten in each of those seasons and was the first three-time captain in school history. Left school as the Big Ten’s all-time leader in total offense, touchdown passes and total touchdowns. Completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 3,053 yards and totaled 47 touchdowns (12 rushing) with nine interceptions and 798 rushing yards in 2017. Combined for 33 touchdowns (nine rushing) as a junior and posted 3,400 total yards. Split time with Cardale Jones in 2015 and totaled 1,674 yards and 22 touchdowns (11 rushing). Completed 64.6 percent of his passes and totaled 3,772 yards and 45 touchdowns (11 rushing) with 10 interceptions as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Patient, hard-working quarterback with a good head on his shoulders. Remains poised in the pocket, stands strong against the rush and knows where receivers are on the field. Always in control of the situation, effectively commands and controls the offense and makes good decisions throwing the ball. Looks to run only when necessary.
Neg: 
Must improve his overall accuracy and pass placement. Slow going to secondary targets. Passes tend to get away from him.
Analysis: 
Barrett was a terrific college quarterback who lacks the accuracy to stay at that position on Sundays. He could be drafted in the very late rounds as a developmental quarterback or tried at other positions.
