PLAYERS: Matt BarkleyPeter King
TEAMS: USC Trojans
Peter King of Sports Illustrated believes USC QB Matt Barkley could make his way into the top half of the first-round with a “strong workout” at his pro day on Wednesday. King adds that Barkley informed him at the Scouting Combine that he intends to “throw better and harder” following an intense rehab process that is designed to strengthen his right shoulder.

It seems as though the consensus has Barkley as an earlier second-round pick right now, but there were some reports following the Combine that suggested Barkley’s intangibles could push him into the first-round. We have Barkley going to the Jaguars at No. 33 overall in the second-round of our 2013 NFL Mock Draft.   The post A “Strong Workout” Could Put Matt Barkley In The Top Half Of The First Round? appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
