You'd be hard-pressed to find anybody who'd disagree that Barkley has regressed since last year.

His numbers aren't as insane for sure, but you also have to look at how many times he's been hit, pressured and sacked. He doesn't have nearly the protection he did last year with Kalil gone....

He's not a scrub but he is not as good as people think, and I'm not sure why he came back for his senior year. He should have left early; him and Kalil had some sort of pact which was quickly forgotten after Mr. Benjamin Franklin and all his fellow dead friends entered the conversation.

He has easily the best WR corp in the country which makes him look better than he is. While he can't make all the throws you'd like him to, he's still got a good arm and good accurracy. He'll be a decent pro, but I don't see his celing being much higher than Sanchez's was when he came out.

Barkley's biggest issue coming back this year was that it was to play for Kiffin who is a world class recruiter but a colossal dipshit.
