Default Do We Take Barkley if He's Available?

I'll keep it short and to the point - say we're drafting in the second round this year and, for whatever reason, Matt Barkley is sitting on the board. Say he has a bad combine and less than impressive pro-day to help this situation along. Since we have an obvious and glaring need for not only a back up to Roethlisberger but a potential replacement, would we spend a second round pick on this kid? His stock went into a complete tailspin and sitting out the final game and the Bowl Game certainly didn't help it back up.

This is the only scenario in which we take a Quarterback in my opinion. I know he's from USC and their last few Quarterbacks have been less than impressive to say the least, but I'd be willing to take that risk for Barkley. I think sitting behind Ben for a few years would ultimately help his progress and make him a potential replacement candidate for Roethlisberger.

So, if he's on the board in the second round when we're picking, do we take him?
