Final Thought: Cody Kessler came into this season with huge expectations for a USC team that had much potential. Unfortunately, for Kessler he failed to live up to expectations, failing to show the cannon arm he was being sold to have and taking nearly forty sacks. On the flip side, Kessler showed decent decision making, good passing accuracy, and excellent pocket passing skills. Kessler's long throwing stride may contribute to his arm not showing the pop that was expected, but he should still hear his name called on day two of the draft.
