Since no quarterback ever has anything other than a “strong workout” at Pro Day, look for Barkley to make his move past Smith.
It’s a topic that was addressed during Friday’s PFT Live, and I put my money where my mock is on Sunday night, with Barkley projected to go before Smith in round one.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
