The guy is performing without Matt Kalil and his all-american C Khaled Holmes.
He's impressed every year and has stayed all 4 years to develop. He isn't some one year wonder like Sanchez and he cares about football more than women, unlike Leinart. Palmer has the prototypical body, but I'll take Barkley's leadership and IQ over Palmer anyday.
Notice I didn't list Cassel....because he sucks.
I don't take any of that "oh don't draft a USC QB, the last 3 have busted..." that's stupid, they're all different people with different abilities. Carson Palmer looked like he was gonna be great before he broke his knee, he never was the same after that. Plus it's a different coach now anyways.
I'd be super happy with Barkley, Geno or any QB really except Landry Jones.
