Nathan Enderle of the Idaho Vandals is one to really keep an eye on this upcoming season. He is a better quarterback then Matt Barkley just doesnt have to same type of athletes around him.

I find it amazing Matt Barkley made in on the watch list ... apparently the voters did not "watch" him play last year.
