2013 NFL Draft: Matt Barkley Will Get Picked Where?

Matt Barkley was once considered the top prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft. Now it's not a guarantee he'll get drafted in the first round.

Where do you think Matt Barkley will go in the draft?

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Going to go out on a limb and say he shockingly ends up being a first rounder after all in the vein of Christian Ponder and Jake Locker. There aren't very many quality quarterbacks in this draft and they always seem to come off the board way earlier than they should.

Gekko Mojo, UW Dawg Pound: Barring a move up by a QB starved team, Barkley could take a big stumble on draft day. Just eyeballing the draft order, it doesn't look like there are many teams outside of the top 10 that are looking for a QB while Scouts Inc has Barkley #32 on their big board. Given the wide variety of opinions on Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib and Barkley, I could easily see Barkley dropping into the late first round or even early second round (think Andy Dalton) before somebody made a move to get into a position to draft him.
