Short QB with a weak arm.... hmmmmmmm let me think
Did you see a few bad throws and decided this is what he does? And their YAC isn't as "off the charts" as you think it is.
Sure, Lee and Woods are fantastic, but that's all he has. Grimble is unproven (will be good) and they rarely use anyone else. Most of the time USC is in 2 or 3 wide sets.
I still think Barkley is the best QB coming out.
Barkley is a good QB the best comparison i have heard for him is he is very similar to Andy dalton if you look at their numbers they are very similar and they have the same height and skillset and build

The best thing Barkley has going for him is that he was the guy that got USC through tough times, it's made him very mature and used to difficult times.
Tyler Wilson is the best QB in this class though.
He is compared to Mallet, but a weaker arm
Mallet was taken by the Pats in the 3rd
By this logic, Wilson should be taken in the late third?
Out of all these people, I'd take Bray, Murray, or barkley
I don't want somebody from loser-iana
Matt Barkley gets alot of flack because of past QB's at USC, you can't go by track record or you can pass up a real gem. Matt Barkley may have some deficiencies like alot of this years QB have but he puts a face on this franchise that we havent had in a long time, His OL is god awful, yes he has some pretty solid WR's he throws to that make him look good at times but he is a playmaker in his own right, he makes all the NFL throws and plays in a pro offense.
I would not be opposed to taking Tyler Wilson either but he has been really exposed since he lost the 3 WR's to the NFL last year, Cobi Hamilton is all he has and he's struggling bad and was injured for awhile there. I like his toughness and willingness to stand in the pocket and take a hit but I also liked Trent Edwards before he took that knockout hit from Arizona safety Adrian Wilson and he was never the same QB when he came back from the concussion. I fear the same will happen to Wilson if he stands and takes those kinds of shots which he has been quite alot at Arkansas especially this season.
Mallet's problem was alleged character issues and that he may be the most awkward moving quarterback I've ever seen. He had a nice arm.
Bray is ok but I don't know if he will declare yet. IMO, Aaron Murray and Tyler Wilson are similar prospects but Wilson's size is better. I like Wilson's arm a lot better than Barkley's arm.
And your diss of Loser-iana doesn't even make sense because he was born and has played college at Arkansas. So my guess is you haven't seen him play.
From all I've seen of this years QBs I'm most impressed with Wilson's skillset. Nice arm, good release, decent deep ball accuracy, able to square up and deliver on the run, leader.
