Gregg Williams compares Rams’ Barron to Sean Taylor

The Rams’ defense is loaded with superstar talent, but, like most good units, they have a stable of versatile role players, as well. Among them is Mark Barron. You might recall the name. He was drafted No. 7 overall by the Buccaneers in 2012, a product of Alabama that was supposed to be an impact…
