How quickly we forget, Barkley was a sure fire first rd pick according to the media if he had come out his Jr. year, just like Lienart. Them boys got the same hype Mariota is getting now. Them boys then had a higher ceiling than Mariota. The media has a tendency to sensationalize, it makes for a better read and an easier sell.
