Default Barkley and Luck

So its beginning to look like the top two QBs in the draft are going to be Barkley and Luck. I really like Barkley. I remember watching him when he was a freshmen at USC and thinking if we didnt already have a franchise QB in Cutler I wish the Broncos could draft him (little did I know!)

Luck is also highly touted. Everyone in the country thinks he is the next big thing (except MileHighMojoe). What are the chances Barkley ends up being the the Peyton Manning to Luck's Ryan Leaf? Personally I think they will both be good, but is it crazy to think Barkley is going to outshine Luck in the NFL?

Pretty sure neither of them are head cases like Ryan Leaf.

Yea thats one of the reasons I think both of them will have success. Luck is going to one of the best academic schools in the nation, and Barkley seems to be Tebowesque in his good character.

Really? That seems... unlikely.

I think both of them have #1 overall pick type talent and attributes.

I think you could see 4-5 of these guys taken in the first round!

I really think it is the situation that young QB's find themselves in that makes or breaks them. Luck needs a cerebral coach/organization. Barkely could use a motivator like Jim Harbaugh.

I actually think Tannehill his a great prospect.

Its true it was him and some other kid that was more of a running threat. Kiper (I'm well aware he is a total douche) was rambling on about him on ESPN that he was going to be the first overall pick in the draft in 4 years. It was right after Sanchez jumped ship... I'm not saying I had some awesome vision that the kid would be a superstar, I just was a fan of the kid. I also liked Jimmy Clausen when he was a freshmen....he was a much bigger let down.

I think the guy to watch could be Russell Wilson from Wisconsin.

I think they'll both be good. I'm still not convinced that Barkley will come out this year.

I would if i were him. If he waits till next year, he will probably be number 1 overall. Considering his family is pretty well off financially he might as well come out now and try to get on a team that isn't the worst team in the league.

Yeah, but he could also have a shot at a national championship. The receiver tandem of Woods and Lee could be legendary. There's a lot to stay for.

This year is shaping up to be reminiscent of the 2004 draft at quarterback.

Very true.. Plus being a star quarterback at USC probably has its perks

Barkley spends his weekends at hospitals helping kids, or church.



What a waste, huh?







I kid.

That's a very different thing than saying he sucks. As a college QB he most certainly does not suck. His pro career is yet to be determined...

Oh I don't know. I've watched a lot of PAC10/12 football over the last 10 years and I'm tired of seeing USC QBs get overrated coming into the draft. Perhaps my view is tainted, but I've watched him play quite a bit and his arm, decision making and resolve in the pocket don't scream NFL QB to me. Of course, he could be the next Aaron Rodgers, but I just have a feeling he's going to suck in the NFL.
