Jets meet with QB Barkley

February, 25, 2013
Feb 25

3:40

PM ET

By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com


Each team is allowed to conduct up to 60 formal player interviews at the combine (15 minutes apiece), and the Jets used one of theirs on USC Matt Barkley, certainly one of the most interesting players in the draft.

The Jets were among nine teams to interview Barkley, according to SI.com.


Barkley is projected as a possible first-round pick, but his stock could fluctuate in the coming weeks, depending on how he performs at his pro day. He didn't throw at the combine because he's still rehabbing a shoulder injury.

He was a four-year starter at USC, succeeding Mark Sanchez in 2009, but his performance slipped as a senior. He's trying to rehabilitate his pro stock, trying to convince everyone he's a serious football junkie, not just some dude from SoCal. He's also fighting the stigma that former USC quarterbacks struggle in the NFL. Matt Leinart was a bust and Sanchez, after two promising years, has slipped.

"There have been great USC quarterbacks (who have done) some things in the NFL," Barkley told reporters last week. "I know my case, my situation and my story is different than all those other guys. I don't think you can put everyone in the same mold. I know what I'm capable of, and I wouldn't be so quick to put a mold around me."

Barkley would be a nice fit in the Jets' new West Coast offense, but he has suspect arm strength, according to scouts. They wouldn't take him with the No. 9 pick, but it could get interesting if he's still around at No. 39.

 

 

 

Could you imagine the bedlam here :rl:

The whole "zomg not USCz" thing strikes me as irrational. I would prefer actual football reasons for not liking Barkley like his deep ball or the shoulder injury.

Theres actually a lot to like about him. Lots of starts, lots of completed passes, lots of yards, lots of TDs, lots of wins...Outside of the first he's a solid QB prospect hurt by real things and then dumb things. There's zero reason to lump him in with a lazy non-talet like Leinart or an inexperienced pup like Sanchez just because they went to the same school. Prospects should be graded on individual merits rather than some reactionary nonsense about the school they went to.

here's a rational football reason. Football played in the northeast often features inclement weather and high winds. At USC the worst these guys see is 50 degrees. If we were the San Diego Chargers i'd say sure.

This board will combust in 9.8 out of 10 scenarios. That should not be a factor.

He did get worse over his last 3 seasons. Rather we look at QBs who progressed in their careers.

Who lacks NFL starter size. Barkley answered questions about his size by coming in at 6'2"+ and 217 or so.

USC got worse over his three seasons. Except for Lee he probably played with the least loaded USC offense in over a decade.

sh*tting in a bag and pissing in the sink. Sounds like a rugby party.

As far as Barkley goes I'd say no.

The arm and the USC thing are legit concerns, but he started a metric sh*t-ton of games and put up pretty good numbers. I don't think he's any worse than Andy Dalton.

Another undersized USC QB with nothing exceptional about his game at all. If the Jets draft this guy it would be an utter joke.,
