Cardinals looking at Barkley as QB of future?

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians and GM Steve Keim are scheduled to hold a private workout Saturday at USC for QB Matt Barkley.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 4, 2013
To be clear, Barkley would be an unlikely pick at No. 7 overall, where the Cardinals select in the first round; actually, the consensus among FOXSports.com draft guru Peter Schrager and ESPN experts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay is that Barkley won't go in the first round at all. Should those projections turn out to be accurate, the private workout would presumably give the Cards the insight to know whether Barkley, the four-year USC starter, would be worth taking in Round 2 (at No. 38 overall) and developing for the future.
It should be noted that Barkley isn't the only QB the Cardinals are known to be interested in, as reports surfaced last week that the team worked out former North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon in Raleigh.
