Who Is Graham Barton? Height, Weight, Age, and More

Graham Barton is one of the top interior offensive line prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft. Here is everything to know about Barton.

As athletic offensive linemen come, Duke’s Graham Barton is another on the long list of players who should hear their names called on the first day of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Here’s everything you need to know about the talented and versatile Blue Devil.

How Tall Is Graham Barton?

Barton is one of the taller offensive linemen of his class. His 6’5″ frame leads him into the 75th percentile of players in his draft class. He does have a shorter arm length and wingspan though — both are below the 50th percentile — which could lead scouts to see him as a true interior offensive lineman in this draft.

How Much Does Barton Weigh?

The Blue Devil recently weighed in at around 313 pounds — around the average of both his class and most interior offensive linemen in the NFL. Barton was a tackle in college, but it appears even he understands his best move could potentially be to guard.

How Old Is Barton?

Born on June 1, 2002, Barton will be 22 years old by the time the season rolls around. He was born in Brentwood, Tenn., and went to Ravenwood High School.

What School Did Barton Go To?

Barton was a three-star recruit, the 14th-ranked offensive guard in 2020, and the 10th overall prospect in the state of Tennessee.

Barton committed to Duke University after also considering Michigan State and Vanderbilt. He saw game action in all four years with the Blue Devils.

Revisiting Barton’s College Career

The Duke tackle saw an immediate rise to fame in his freshman season down in Durham, N.C. After injuries to the team’s starting and backup centers, Barton started the final five games of the season and was named a second-team Freshman All-American by The Athletic.

From then on, Barton was the team’s starting left tackle during his college career. He was named as a first-team All-ACC player in his junior season.

Barton’s Potential in the NFL

Barton’s overall draft profile is pretty simple. His arm length and wingspan indicate he would be better suited to play guard. Luckily for him, he already gained experience playing in the interior of the line during his college career.

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings has broken down Barton’s tape and has this to say of the young prospect:

“Barton’s five-position versatility is one of the top differentiators on his profile. He has experience at both tackle and center, and his combination of athleticism, power, flexibility, footwork feel, anchor strength, football IQ, and physicality allows him to seamlessly transition between roles.

“Barton should have a floor as a quality starter with scheme diversity right out of the gate, and if he can improve his play strength, he can become an impact starter at either guard or center, with pinch-hitter tackle capabilities.”

Cummings later points to Barton as a potential late-first-round pick, but a team in need of interior offensive line help could certainly look to take a flier on him in the midway portion of the draft’s opening round.
