Here’s a Servite grad commenting on a Mater Dei grad as the former Raiders QB weighs in on Barkley: “He throws a very catchable ball. He doesn’t force many balls. If he doesn’t like what he sees to one side, he knows where his secondary receivers are and he’s going to find them most of the time.
“But he does not have that rifle arm. He does not have the ability to really zip the football in there. He can’t beat you with his feet. Everything about Matt Barkley is solid, but not spectacular. That’s why he’s going to end up falling out of the first round. He’s very average. But he has a chance to be a good pro football player over time.”
