Allen Wade Barbre (born June 22, 1984, in Neosho, Missourimarker), is an American football offensive tackle who currently plays for the Green Bay Packers. He was selected in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football for Missouri Southern State University.


Barbre is the highest-ever drafted player to come out of Southern. He joined Richard Jordan (1997) and Jim Hoots (1971) both of whom went in the seventh round, as the only players to be drafted from the school. Barbre will join current NFL and Southern alums Rod Smith (Denver Broncos) and James Thrash (Washington Redskins) as three former Lions in the NFL. He is the fifth-highest drafted player in MIAA history and the second-highest offensive lineman ever selected from the league.

Barbre was a consensus All-American, All-MIAA and All-Region first-team selection in 2006. He helped lead an offensive line that saw quarterback Adam Hinspeter become just the second passer in school history to throw for 2,000 yards twice in a career. The offense amassed 3,461 yards for the season, including 2,527 passing. He finished with a career-high 94 knockdowns at left tackle and also excelled on the punt coverage unit, coming up with seven solo tackles.

For his career, Barbre started 33 of 37 contests. All but one of those starting assignments came at the demanding left tackle position. He was credited with 254 knockdown blocks and registered ten tackles (9 solos) on special teams. He was the first player from Southern to be invited to the NFL Combine.

Barbre was Southern's first All-American since Josh Chapman in 2002, and was the first to be named First-Team since Richard Jordan in 1996. He was the fifth offensive lineman at Southern to be named First-Team All-American joining the likes of Terron Jackson (1972), Willie Williams (1976), Joel Tupper (1982) and Yancy McNight (1995). He was the ninth Lion overall to be named First-Team All-American.
