My 1 knock on barkley is i think he falls in love with touch passes to much rather than actually showing off his arm strength. Which is fine if you have the time to set it up and read it properly. But this year he didn't have that luxury
I do think people overstate his lack of arm strength, but he would not be in the upper half of the league when he gets drafted.
Matt Barkley is going to succeed or fail in the NFL because of his dedication to his craft, or lack thereof.
I tend to believe he's a guy that will put in the work.
