Is this a horror story for college players?

I can't think of another player off the top of my head that value dropped from one year to another then Barkley barring a serious injury. A lot of people said he was a sure fire first rounder last year. He had a great year and I saw experts saying he would have been probably the 3rd or 4th rated QB last year.

I think and hope a lot of players will see what happened to Barkley this year and leave school early to risk his kind of drop.

Did his stock drop, or did it just seek it's own level LOL

Actually why did his stock drop?

His stock dropped because he sucked compared to previous years and his injury. He got exposed for the fraud he really was. Can't believe some people thought he would be better than Andrew Luck.

That would be his head coach, Lane Kiffin.

Really glad he didn't come out after his Jr year - I believe he might have been a top ten pick and possibly, a Cleveland Brown. Huge mistake on his part, it cost him millions. I feel bad for him in that regard. People advising young athletes should remember Rule #1 in deciding to go pro - if you will go in the 1st round - you go.

The Eagles take Matt Fartley! The back end of this draft will be interesting for sure!
