  • Gil Brandt ranks the rookie RB's (Barkley)

    FYI, If posted already I apologize

    RANK

    1


    Saquon Barkley, Giants

    Measurements: 6-foot, 233 pounds, 9 1/2-inch hands, 41-inch vertical jump, 29 reps on the bench press, 4.4-second 40-yard dash.

    Drafted: Round 1, No. 2 overall.

    Barkley is the best skill player I've graded since 1960, with Bo Jackson being the second-best. Everything about him, statistically speaking, is encouraging. He reminds me a lot of Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson -- Barkley has great skills and character and, crucially, great vision, which Bill Parcells thinks is the most important trait in a running back. I remember watching Penn State play Pittsburgh in 2016 and Barkley jumped out like a sore thumb, racking up 85 rushing yards and 45 receiving yards with five total touchdowns (four on the ground, one through the air). And to show he brings it against premier opponents on a big stage, consider his numbers in the Rose Bowl after the 2016 season (249 yards from scrimmage, three touchdowns against USC) or the Fiesta Bowl last season (175 yards from scrimmage, two scores against Washington). He finished his career with outstanding totals of 3,843 rushing yards, 43 rushing touchdowns, 1,195 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns. When you talk to Barkley's coaches, they say no one works harder than him. He's a smart player and he'll block the blitzer. Barkley will be an outstanding player in the NFL for many years, barring injury or an unexpected shift in focus, withPro Bowl and All-Pro nods in his future. And he'll have plenty of opportunity in New York.

    Absolute beast. Best Combine ever by a RB. Did you get to see the 3 Episodes of "Hey Rookie, Welcome to the NFL" that follows Barkley & Chubb from Camps to improve 40 speed, Combine, Pro Days & finally the draft???

    Amazing... If not look it up see if they do a rebroadcast or find it online. Then come back and talk to me. I won't ruin it for you. Watch it then will talk
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                      My thought process was "if the Browns snag SB, then I wanted either Nelson or Chubb" One would've improved the OL, the other woulda improved the DL, win-win situation either way.

                          True could not have gone wrong with any of the 3 but glad we got who we did
