But he just seems like a douche kid with great physical talents.
Also, after watching all his games this year I think Barkley is more physically gifted than he gets credit for. I know it's been said but he reminds me of a slightly shorter Matt Ryan at this point. He arm strength which was my only question, seems like it isn't a problem.
Barkley's height may be a bit of an issue though. Ryan can get on top of the ball and fire down into intermediate zones whereas Barkley's height may keep him from doing that as often.
That deep ball doesn't impress me as it is impressing a lot of guys here. He had enough room to throw his entire body into that and was able to get it downfield. That throw in that situation happens on hail mary's and that's about it. Otherwise we're still talking about the ability to get the ball moving with a quick release and high velocity. I still didn't see much of that last night.
He didn't display 'practical' arm strength with that throw.
As for Bray, I'm still not sure. He's my favorite physical talent in the draft but his feet really are awful sometimes and yeah, there's some Cutler to the boy. I dunno. He's the biggest risk/reward pick to be had if he comes out, IMO.
