Robert Griffin III vs. Matt Barkley

Overall, when looking at the two prospects what you have is case of a higher upside and more naturally talented prospect in Robert Griffin III vs. a higher floor guy in Matt Barkley who is more limited physically…I still think both guys are future starting NFL quarterbacks. I just feel there are some physical limitations surrounding a prospect like Barkley that would keep me from giving him the same type of grade as Griffin III. Basically with Barkley I worry about his lacking athleticism and foot quickness in the pocket. Too often he seems to struggle to quickly collect his footing, which directly corresponds with his accuracy problems. Griffin III on the other hand is much more fleet of feet, is a more fluid/natural thrower of the football and displays better overall touch/accuracy in my view vertically down the field.
