I agree with you on RG3..however, teams are reaching for QBs..look at all the bums who went early in this last draft..somebody will reach on Rg3-in the 1st.
Where Barkley goes in the draft obviously is going to be dictated on how the season shapes up. Players can be drafted higher due to demand on a position. So for me, saying Matt Barkley is gauranteed 1st rounder doesn't say much to me.
I'm looking at him as a QB prospect.
I'm not overly enamored with him, although he is having a great start to this season. He's not in Andrew Luck's echelon (nobody this year is). I think Barkley compares very similiar to Jimmy Clausen (2nd rounder '10), Christian Ponder (1st round '11), and Andy Dalton (3rd round '11) in terms of the type of prospect he is.
