Matt BarkleyQuarterback | USC
Matt Barkley is one of the marquee players in college football, a quarterback who put up huge numbers in 2011 and is a leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season. A four-year starter and three-time team captain, Barkley completed 69.1 percent of his passes last season with 39 touchdown passes; both marks set school records, and the TD total was also a Pac-12 record. He's on pace to set USC career passing and total offense marks. Passed up the opportunity to be a first-round pick in the NFL draft for a shot to lead the Trojans to a national title.
