Browns Shouldn't Take Saquon Barkley With #1 Pick

Saquon then put his speed on display by running a blistering 4.40 secs in the 40-yard dash, per NFL.com. In the meantime, other running backs get to impress and drive up their stock.

The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is officially underway.

It's the fifth-slowest time by any player at the combine in the last 16 years, and none of the four who were slower were drafted or started a single game in the pros. "I'd say that's pretty important for a left tackle". Not even the Browns are inept enough to pass on him, right?

And that wasn't even Barkley's first impressive feat of the day.

After his combine performance, he can all but kiss any chance of being in the top 10 goodbye.

The most glaring are the 14 reps on the bench press and being yelled at by coaches. We are talking about a player that weighs 345 pounds and whose job it will be to protect the blind-side of a team's franchise quarterback. He ran 4.52 seconds in the 40 at 227 pounds.

Before the prospects take the field, they undergo physical and mental tests. According to NFL.com research, there have only been 4 players since 2003 to post slower times.

He lumbered through the 40-yard dash in 5.85 seconds.

On Thursday, Barkley, who measured 6-feet, 233 pounds, did 29 reps on the bench press (fellow running back Nick Chubb also recorded 29), which was better than all but five of the 36 offensive linemen who took part in bench this year.

Saquon Barkley's performance in this year's Scouting Combine brought back memories of the incredible performance we saw from Vernon Davis at the 2006 Scouting Combine.
