I know there are a lot of people who think Barkley had a ton of talent around him at USC, but that's really not the case. His O-.line was terrible after Matt Kalil left early for the draft. His defense had a lot of nothing and didn't do much to help him win games. As far as Woods and Maze go imo Barkley is the one who turned them into top WR prospects not the other way around. Finally the talk of USC QB's not making it the the NFL is just a player by player basis. Leinheart wanted to be a star not a QB and Sanchez had only starred 19 games and wasn't ready for the NFL and imo anyone would take Palmer when he was in Cincinnati. I just don't think its fair to say he won't be a franchise QB cause of what school he went to. Barkley has been preparing his whole life to be an NFL QB, he was a 5 star recruit comming outta high school and was a 4 yr starter at a big name school who put up huge numbers. He is the only QB I want with the #8 pick, Geno Smith will be gone and Glennon, Wilson and Nassib I wouldn't touch with the 8th overall pick. If I'm Marrone I'm going with the QB who put up crazy numbers against me and my defense, a guy I could never stop and I guy I know very well from playing against, a guy who could start day one.....Matt Barkley!
