04:24 PM ET 04.26 | The Oakland Raiders may have identified their quarterback of the future in Matt Barkley. The talk heading into Friday's second round is that the Raiders are high on Barkley and may be targeting him at No. 42, which would give them a younger alternative to Matt Flynn, whom they traded for this offseason.

Relax, Mr. Flynn, Matt Barkley's no Russell Wilson.

At this point in the development of the team drafting Barkley doesn't make sense. Give Flynn a chance to see what he can do, draft at other positions of need, and wait until next year when the QB class is supposed to be stronger.

Seems so obvious, doesn't it? Too many other needs...fill some of them!
