    You guys are confusing Matt Leinart for Matt Barkley. Both were USC QB's who could have went pro after their junior seasons but decided to stay in school, however only Leinart had a successful senior season (he made it to the BCS Champioship game where his team lost to Texas). After a great senior season, he was drafted 10th by the Cardinals in 2006. Like Leinart, Matt Barkley also passed on the draft, but unlike his predecessor, he struggled throughout his senior year. A year after he would have likely been taken in the top ten of the 2012 Draft, he was drafted in the 4th round of the 2013 Draft.

    i'm pretty sure it's fairly known that he basically partied his way out of the NFL

    i still think leinart could be a decent NFL qb, and he definitely has had some bad luck like getting injured after the starting qb for the texans at the time went down and doing an ok job at that point

    and his time at arizona wasn't great either except his rookie season

    though i do think it has to do with his confidence level as well, i think the want to get better is there...but idk, just haven't seen it
