Once considered a sure-fire first-round selection, Matt Barkley had to wait until the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft to hear his name called. Of course, the former USC quarterback didn't have to wait long on Saturday.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded up to the top spot in the fourth round and made Barkley the first pick of the round and the 98th overall.
"I try not to get stressed about things I can't control," Barkley said after being drafted, via The Associated Press. "I'm just glad I know where my home is and I can't wait to hit the playbook."
With just three quarterbacks chosen in the first three rounds of the draft, the fourth round brought some relief to a few of the signal callers around the country. Along with Barkley, quarterbacks Ryan Nassib, Tyler Wilson and Landry Jones were all selected.
With one of the final selections of the fourth round, the 49ers picked running back Marcus Lattimore, who suffered a serious knee injury during the 2012 season. Although the timetable for his return isn't set, Lattimore's rehabilitation efforts have been one of the story lines of the offseason. The 21-year-old out of South Carolina was given a round of applause by scouts during his pro-day-workout in March.
"We're not going to put Marcus Lattimore on the field until he's 100%," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said, via Marc Sessler of NFL.com.
