Report: Matt Barkley won’t fall past the Cardinals who hold the 7th overall pick

For the past month or so there have been reports that former USC quarterback could get drafted in the first round.

According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, one NFL scout told him that he doesn’t see Barkley slipping past the Arizona Cardinals who hold the seventh overall pick in April’s draft.

I know this could be a smoke screen, but it wouldn’t shock me if Barkley does get taken in the top ten.  Nothing shocks me anymore after watching Christian Ponder and Jake Locker get taken high in the first round just a couple of years ago.
