I’m not sure Buffalo will be going into the 2012 Draft with the idea that they “need” a quarterback…but if there is one the team likes available when the Bills are on the clock, the Bills are going to take him.
That possibility just got a bit smaller today, as USC QB Matt Barkley today announced that he will return to school for his senior season and not enter the 2012 NFL Draft. Barkley was a likely top-10 selection and would have been awfully tempting for Buffalo if he was sitting there when the Bills selected.
I can’t really blame Barkley for staying. USC is going to be really good next year and definitely will contend for the Pac-12 and BCS titles. Since they’ve been ineligible for the postseason the past few years, you gotta believe Barkley really wants a taste of bowl action.
