Giants select Saquon Barkley in 2018 NFL Draft

Barkley and the rest of the 2017 Fiesta Bowl championship squad got their rings at Saturday’s Blue White game

Before you go out of your way to call me an idiot or tell me this well never happen, I understand that the idea of the Philadelphia Eagles trading up in the 2018 NFL Draft for former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is insane and will not happen. Though, Howie Roseman is a magician...so, I mean... "He has not lost one bit of arm strength".

Barkley, who starred at Penn State, is considered by a plethora of National Football League general managers, coaches and talent evaluators as the best player in the draft regardless of position.

VBR wishes Saquon the best of luck in the NFL! "That's the challenge for him".

Right now there are seemingly two challenges that will present themselves during Barkley's rookie season that might take some getting used to.

A relentless work ethic has helped create a strong, elusive runner that can beat an opposing defense in every way possible.

Gettleman said after the pick was in that Saquon was the guy all along. "He can string together moves and get in and out of stuff".

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported last week that there seemed to be no doubt that Barkley would be the No. 1 player on the Giants' board, and that they think building around an offensive core of Barkley, Evan Engram, and Odell Beckham, Jr. could make them an offensive juggernaut for years to come. He said he felt at home after his visit with the Giants.

There are a few teams that may be interested in trading up are the Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and the Los Angeles Chargers, who would be looking for a quarterback if they made a decision to move up for the future. "And it's not going to happen in one day".

In three seasons, Barkley finished as Penn State's second all-time leading rusher with 3,843 yards, including 1,271 this past season when he scored 138 points.

"I'm not going to lie". His 53 overall touchdowns also are a school record.

The only issue for the Giants was whether they'd take a quarterback instead, which was debated a lot inside the organization. The following season, he led the Big Ten in all-purpose yards (140.86 yards per game) and 22 total touchdowns while finishing second with 1,496 rushing yards. The late George Young selected Lawrence Taylor.
