Will Matt Barkley be a first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft?

Matt Barkley has been one of the most closely scrutinized prospects in the 2013 draft class. Widely considered a Heisman Trophy front runner and potential No. 1 overall draft pick entering his senior campaign at USC, the quarterback endured an uneven season, as the Trojans (7-6) became the first preseason No. 1 to lose six games.

Barkley's campaign actually ended in the Trojans' penultimate regular-season game against rival UCLA, when the signal-caller separated his throwing shoulder. Still rehabbing from the injury, Barkley will not throw at the NFL Scouting Combine, opting instead to let it fly at USC's March 27 pro day.

With all of that in mind, former NFL scouts (and NFL draft veterans) Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks tackle a simple question: Will Matt Barkley be a first-round pick in April?

Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah will regularly debate hot-button issues related to the draft as we move through the preparation process. Follow them on Twitter @BuckyBrooks and @MoveTheSticks.
