Did Matt Barkley Not Hurt His Draft Stock Coming Back For Senior Season?

This article from NFL.com suggests Barkley’s stock did not drop because he would not have been drafted that high last year anyway.

“I don’t think Barkley really hurt himself,” an AFC college scouting director said. “He was the same guy last year. He didn’t start falling in October, no matter where he was on everyone’s ‘big board’ in December. I looked at Barkley (after his junior year) and I thought he was a backup quarterback. I told people, ‘I’m not sold.’ And it was the same thing this year. In the end, I don’t think he hurt himself.”

    I did some research, and this scouting director’s name – depending on how you search – is either Carlos Bucket or Poonsawat Rodriguez. I did a crosstab on my research output, just in case, and the director’s name may also be (with proper controls of course) Spedometer Jonesville.

      you don’t mean Poonsawat Rodriguez, “the Jerry Sandusky of collegiate badminton” do you?

        THAT Poonsawat, yes. Notoriously sunny disposition. VERY high intellect. And extremely clever. It would make sense that he is the lone public voice speaking truth to the hordes of morons. A distant cousin of Scott Wolf, but less courageous of course.

          Now that’s funny! Obviously, you guys must have purchased and viewed the video…”How To be Witty, Clever, and CLASSY”, by C. Bucket. Insiders tell me the follow up, “Dumb Dog tricks, and STUPID TORGANS” is already the NUMBER 1 Most Pirated Video in China!
          fit on torgans!

            Hi Thai,
            I looked for that video but all I could find by C. Bucket was one called “How to childishly poke at people on the internets”.

    Going from leading the preseason #1 ranked team and being the Heisman favorite to 7-6, unranked and out of the Heisman race and getting thumped by fucla didn’t hurt Matt? That article must have been published on April 1st.
