NFL | Matt Barkley thinks draft stock still high

Southern California QB Matt Barkley does not believe his poor season, which included a shoulder injury, will hurt his stock in the NFL Draft. Barkley believes he's as good, if not better, than he was in 2011, when he threw 39 touchdowns and seven interceptions and was projected to be a high first-round pick before deciding to return to school for his senior season. "People have been looking at stats over the past year, who's hot, who's not," Barkley said. "We didn't finish the year strong, I know that. But that doesn't mean I'm any less of a quarterback this year. I'm excited just to put that back in people's minds. I haven't lost any confidence in myself and haven't doubted my ability to play quarterback, not once."
