Barkley Sounds Undecided - But Takes First Step


Recommended Posts

Here's Matt Barkley in an interview....and he's applied for an NFL "evaluation" that many underclassmen do to determine their draft projection.

Tough to get a real clear read on his intentions....but my hunch is that he'll stay at USC since they regain bowl eligibility next season and the rookie cap means less financial risk by waiting a year.

Sounds like he wants to come back. This might raise our bargaining price for #1 overall if we decide to trade it seeing how Robert Griffin sounds like he wants to come back as well.

I would love it if he does. The news regarding Peyton's fusion is also good. As AC17 said, if Barkley stays in another year and Robert Griffin III also stays at Baylor another year (he's indicated that he would) that would greatly improve our odds of getting a ransom in trade for the chance to draft Luck. I would want nothing less than their 1st round, 2nd, and 4th in 2012, and likely 1st and 2nd round in 2013. If possible getting a 1st round in 2014 would be ideal because that is when another quarterback MUST be drafted if one has not already been selected to be groomed behind Manning in 2012. I don't think waiting until 2015 is a very safe bet. Rookie quarterbacks need at least 2-3 years to be prepared and with that much time the heir to Manning would have at least 8-12 preseason games and possible mop up opportunities to get a feel for the speed of the NFL game.

    • Hilton is making plays , just unfortunate penalties have negated some of his best and some of the others resulted in P.I. calls which we gained yardage (Have said before wish NFL kept track of yards gained through P.I. drawn for players, they are just as good as catches in reality) . I'm not saying he is what he was just saying he doesnt seem to have fallen off a cliff either. As for Fountain, small school guy who has measurables (Nothing like Cain who helped lead Clemson to a national title vs the best NCAA competition and had even better measurables ), injury put him behind and doesnt look fully back while others have passed him like Johnson and even Harris.  Hope he gets a P.S. spot somewhere if not us and hope he eventually makes it as a team's 5th or 6th WR, that is likely his upside.
    • I sincerely apologize for disagreeing with your bad takes.
    • he had two years in Chicago. the last was not good at all.  he had 4 with Philly, and wasn't anything the first two, and mediocre the last two. was more gadget than anything.
    • Oh. I since I didn't realize it was tongue in cheek, my garbage take was to assume that ego has something to do with a person choosing SUPERMAN as an internet moniker.
    • Sorry, I will trust Ballard's judgment over yours anytime.  He had 3 pretty good years with Chicago till injuries took him out of games.  There is no reasoning with you.
