This week in the Arizona Cardinals' desperate, years-long search for a functional quarterback: Matt Barkley.
According to one of the NFL.com writers at the scouting combine this week, the Cardinals found Barkley "extremely impressive," and there's a "rumor" that the Cardinals are "very interested" in the USC quarterback.
NFL.com also noted that the local Cardinals reporters, Darren Urban and Kent Somers, both said they would be a bit surprised if the Cardinals grabbed Barkley with the seventh pick.
We'd be inclined to agree, if not only for the fact that the Cardinals have first-hand experience drafting one of USC's pretty-boy quarterbacks in Matt Leinart. Consider some others -- Mark Sanchez, John David Booty, Carson Palmer, Todd Marinovich (Sean Salisbury!?).
However, we'll leave it up to the readers. The last time we tested a quarterback rumor, just under half of New Times readers wanted Tim Tebow under center.
