USC quarterback Matt Barkley has been talked about all season as a top pick. After starting the season ranked No 1 in the country, the Trojans finished the season 7-5 and Barkley didn't even finish the season. He was knocked out with a shoulder injury late in a losing effort at UCLA. Barkley had outstanding numbers during his USC career completing 64 percent of his passes for 12,327 yards and 116 touchdowns and 48 interceptions. Barkley's down side is that he is not very mobile taking 55 sacks. After missing the Trojans' game against Notre Dame, Barkley should be healthy and ready to go against Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl December 31, 2012.
