Default Barkley Staying at USC

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...012-nfl-draft/

Going for the Heisman and a Bowl Game

Makes a USC fan happy but I am sure their are some very upset Dolphins and Browns fans right now

NOT a particularly good decision IMO, but to each their own.

I think he will still be a top 5 pick.

This solidifies USC as a pre-season Top 5 team. They will definitely be a force next year and make a run at the National Title. With RG3, Andrew Luck, and possibly Landry Jones going to the draft this year, I don't think this decision to stay is that bad of an idea. He could easily be the first QB taken next year barring any major injuries.

I thought USC was still in a bowl ban or did it end this year?

Default Re: Barkley Staying at USC

This is a mistake IMO since he's a top 5 pick in the 2012 draft. It's a huge risk just trying to be the #1 overall pick in 2013. Barkley should remember that the All-American LT, Matt Kalil, protecting his blind side is going to the NFL and they'll be starting a new guy next year. He's risking his future in the hands of a new unproven LT and it only takes one blow to the knee to make him a late 1st or early 2nd round pick.

I think they will be off probation after this year. They should be bowl eligible next year.

Never meant he wouldn't be. IMO, the risk of injury in his last year knocking him into perhaps the second round or maybe even out of football is the real risk. The iron is hot and it is risky NOT to strike it. However, if he plays even better this next season he may wind up the number one pick. It is a dice roll, but it seems to have a bunch more downside than upside.

Remember Matt Leinart played this game a few years ago and it backfired on him. He would have been a top 10 pick after his junior year but decided to stay so that he could party with co-eds in hot tubs, not that it's a bad thing I would if I could, but it cost him draft position the next year. This is a dangerous game to play and it almost never works out for the better.

Leinart is nowhere close to Barkley in terms of talent. Lacks arm strength, accuracy, mobility & least I remind you durability. The only thing in common is their College & position played. Barkley is a true #1 next level mark these words.

But I respect his decision

$$$$, isn't everything and Barkley is an example of what's right in kids today.
