Steve Sarkisian would draft Matt Barkley ahead of Andrew Luck

Luckcombo.620

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is the presumed No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

But he apparently wouldn't be if Steve Sarkisian was an NFL coach.

"If I’m an NFL head coach, right now, I’d pick Matt Barkley ahead of Andrew Luck," Sarkisian said. "I think he’s playing at that high of a level."

Barkley passed for a USC record six touchdowns in Friday's 42-17 victory over Colorado. He has passed for 28 touchdowns, with six interceptions,  this season.

Luck has passed for 26 touchdowns, with five interceptions. He completed 16 of 21 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns in Stanford's 65-21 victory over Washington on Oct. 22.
