I know Matt Barkley had a forgetful year but I still think he is a 1st round talent and better than Geno Smith. Opinions please.
I agree. I think he will end up being better than Geno.
Geno is too risky IMO. Barkley is solid but my biggest knock on him is he looked a bit out of shape this season/overweight which affected his mobility. Also he is prone to mental errors. I like him or Wilson probably the best in this class until the combine
4000 yards passing with 40 TD's
490 pass attempts with only 6 picks
71.4 completion percentage.
4.80 40 yard dash
Barkley is going to be an interesting guy to watch leading up to the draft. He really struggled this year, but it is not the best year for QB's. I really like another quarterback who struggled in 2012 and that is Tyler Wilson. I think he could be a steal in this draft. Very impressive young man at SEC Media Days.

I agree about Tyler Wilson but Barkley's bad year is all on Kiffin. Barkley has talent and he reminds me of Matthew Stafford.
Count me on the Barkley wagon. The guy can rocket the ball into some really tight windows. Geno got to float balls over to his wrs due to their offensive style and speed. I also think Barkley and Wilson were the only two qbs who could carry their offense when they were struggling. Smith, Jones and Manuel often tanked and threw a bunch of picks if their offense wasn't in sync.

Barkley has nowhere near the arm strength Stafford does.
I agree. Arm is a little better than average at best. Stafford has rare arm strength.
Wilson has potential. I do think his release point is low.
