Rod Gilmore says if he were starting a team, he'd start with Lee

More surprising is the ND guy picking Barkley.
Maybe he values integrity, leadership and stellar character traits.

That caught my eye. For just a second I started to look towards the top of the page in order to see if the article was posted on this day in 2011, but then I realized no one knew who Johnny Football was at this time in 2011. Picking Barkley first would have been the way I would have gone after the 2011 season.
Old coach for Denver felt the same way, and that is why he is no longer a head coach. Talent is the most important aspect for a football player. Also I have seen nothing at all to suggest that Lee lacks anything in the leadership, integrity and character departments.

My comment was specific to Matt...we all know Marqise is a high character guy....with a crap load of talent.
Some need to be reminded that Matt has some qualities that will be attractive to an NFL franchise. With any luck, Matt may actually get to sit and learn behind another starting quarterback.
Definitely agree on your points. The benefit of Barkley's projected draft status dropping is he might get a chance to sit and learn, something he hasn't done since, what, middle school, pop warner? instead of being dropped right into a high pressure situation such as Arizona.
My thoughts exactly.....articulated better than I.
If someone mentors MB and takes him under their wings Matt can become a very special player without having to be thrown in the spot light as that has not boded well for us in the past.
