The Philadelphia Eagles traded up to take USC Quarterback Matt Barkley with the No. 98 overall pick. New Eagles coach Chip Kelly coached against this kid just last year so he has seen enough film on Barkley to know what he’s getting. However, one has to wonder with the recent busts of Mark Sanchez and Matt Leinart, is USC a Quarterback factory or a bust machine. I guess the Philly fans will find out this year.
Here are some of the more interesting Twitter tweets about the newest member of The Philadelphia Eagles.
Wow…so cool that Charles Barkley’s son is on the Philadelphia #Eagles. Doesn’t look too much like him though.

#Eagles Michael Vick just threw his TV remote at the screen, but missed it by 10 feet.

Like another “Barkley”, after 8 yrs in Philly, Matt will be traded, play 4 yrs in Phoenix then get traded & play 4 yrs in Houston. #Eagles
