Matt Barkley doesn't think the way he and USC finished last season should affect his stock in April's NFL draft. "People have been looking at stats over the past year, who's hot, who's not," Barkley said on "The Herd" on ESPN Radio on Friday. "We didn't finish the year strong, I know that. But that doesn't mean I'm any less of a quarterback this year. I'm excited just to put that back in people's minds. I haven't lost any confidence in myself and haven't doubted my ability to play quarterback, not once."
