Very true and understandable. However, Leinart, Palmer, and especially Sanchez weren't being looked at as college QB's when they were in 8th Grade like Barkley was. Also Barkley took over as a True Freshman, beat out a highly rated Senior in Aaron Corp, and took USC with the fewest talent it had in years, to Columbus Ohio to beat Ohio State in a 2 minute drive to end the game. He's only gotten better, and he puts up great numbers against the pac 12. The difference off the bat between him, Leinart, and Sanchez, is that Matt always had great players around him with a weak arm. Barkley has a strong arm and has played with bad and great players, yet is consistent with whomever. Sanchez only played one year at USC with some good players. Barkley has been playing and starting for 3 straight years. Palmer on the other hand was a great player in college, and was starting to become great until he tore his ACL in that playoff game, and wasn't the same since.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

Winning the Heisman doesn't mean squat when making it to the pro's. Does the name Archie Griffin rings a bell? Most great QB's in this league never won a Heisman (Montana, Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Favre) some did (Testaverde, Wuerfell, Leinart, Detmer, Weinke, Crouch, Troy Smith, Palmer, Tebow, Bradford, Charlie Ward, Torreta, Plunkett, Newton) so to me it means nothing, to be honest I rather have them not win it, it's like a curse.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

I've never seen a Heisman trophy increase a QB's stock. If anything it only seems to hurt it, if for nothing more then increased scrutiny.

I understand and partially agree with what you're saying but this hasn't been the case lately. If Tim Tebow never would of won the Heisman ESPN and everyone else wouldn't have sensationalized him to the degree that they did. The same can be said for Matt Leinert. No way would he would of been a top 10 pick if he didn't win the Heisman. Now that the media has gone into hype overdrive Robert Griffin will be the most talked about pick next to Luck, infact this whole draft season will be comparing the 2 non-stop and everyone will give their opinions as to who should draft who and why. It's going to be the lead in story for months to come just you wait.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

Let me start by saying that RG3 deserved this more than any other player in college football. Do I think his stock is going to rise because of it? I would absolutely not. Scouts and GMs are going to grade this guy based solely on his skill set. His stock is going to rise in the combine.

Agreed. I am very impressed by the way he plays but also how he conducts himself.

I am also in favor of RGIII. I think his skill set and work ethic will carry him far.

Palmer could have been a better QB if the Steelers had not taken him out during the playoffs a couple of seasons ago. Dont think he was the same after that knee injury.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

I notice on some of the highlights of RGIII he is wearing a knee brace. Does he have a bad knee?
