2012 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Selects Matt Barkley (QB, USC) at No. 3
Other than Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley is way better than the other quarterbacks in this draft.
Barkley plays in a pro-style system at USC and is learning from one of the best offensive minds in the country, Lane Kiffin.
He has the ability to make any throw on the field and has very underrated mobility. He is everything teams look for in a quarterback.
Buffalo needs a quarterback as bad as any team in the lead. The fans also need something to be excited about. Nothing is more exciting than a big name star coming from USC to lead your team back to their glory days.
Last season, Barkley threw for 2,791 yards and 26 touchdowns as a sophomore. Now entering his junior season, Barkley is looking for his breakout year.
If he can throw for over 3,000 yards and lead his Trojans to a good season, he will be drafted somewhere in the top five.
