Odell Beckham makes big prediction about Saquon Barkley

  • Davis Webb at least proving himself to Giants off the field

If Barkley is available at No. 2, he is the draft's best player and should be a Giant. "Hopefully I can go there and help as quickly as possible". He's one of those guys that my mother could have scouted. The Giants passed on an heir apparent to two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning for a runner that many think is the best to come out of college in decade. "Saquon Barkley is a transformational back". All four ranked in the top five in passing yards last season.

By the time Barkley spoke to reporters in New Jersey in a conference call, he had received welcoming texts from Manning and receiver Odell Beckham Jr., whom he had recently trained with in Los Angeles. The Giants were enamored with Barkley from the start of the process, and their offseason moves sent them in the direction of the draft's top running back.

Originally, there was some speculation that the former Penn State star would end up going as the top overall pick to the Cleveland Browns, but the team chose to address their need at quarterback instead by selecting Baker Mayfield.


After hugging everyone in his draft party - from his family to Penn State head coach James Franklin - Barkley smiled wide, walked to AT&T Stadium's main stage, greeted National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell and took pictures holding up a blue Giants jersey.

Running backs have been devalued in the draft in recent years. They believe injuries and bad chemistry and attitude destroyed last year's team, and the truth about what the Giants are falls somewhere between last year's 3-13 disaster and the somewhat lucky 11-5 2016 team. I do not believe the Giants are in the quarterback market with this pick. but I wouldn't rule it out entirely, either. "No matter when backs were drafted, they posted pretty similar numbers in terms of yards per carry and rushing Defense-Adjusted Value Over Average". - Barkley, who originally committed to Rutgers university, crushed rushing records and stacked up elite highlights at PSU.

This year's draft also boasts an impressive crop of quarterbacks, including USC's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Louisville's Lamar Jackson.
