NFL Draft: Giants draft Saquon Barkley

New York Giants quarterback Davis Webb passes the

They include 2014 first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr., 2016 second-round pick Sterling Shepard and 2017 first-round pick Evan Engram.

The note reads, "Saquon Barkley No Matter What", which is a play on the fake scene in the movie where Kevin Costner unfolds a note that reads "Vontae Mack No Matter What".

Over the past two years in Happy Valley, Barkley rushed for over 2,700 yards and added another 1,100 receiving with 43 combined touchdowns, numbers that the Giants will be hoping can translate to the NFL. "Saquon Barkley is a transformational back". But if this running back isn't helping to prop up Eli Manning, then I can't see him getting by Tampa - with Jacquizz Rodgers now atop their running back depth chart - under any circumstances.

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. The decision confirms the franchise's confidence in both Manning's longevity, despite being 37 years old, and in second-year QB Davis Webb's potential.

The Giants' reward for an unbearable 3-13 season is Saquon Barkley. However, Barkley doesn't want that to be known as a feel-good story, he told Sports Illustrated, who provided his background in an in-depth piece in April 2018.

So, I'm going to set all of that aside for another day. Any of the next three teams - the Browns, Broncos or Colts - could snap up Barkley. So the Giants could be armed with two home run hitting threats if they re-sign Beckham to a long-term contract and keep him a Giant. Barkley's built like them but doesn't necessarily run like them. Now they not only find their running back in the future, but the upgrade to their offense will be felt throughout the league. They recently moved on from their leading rusher last season, Orleans Darkwa (751 yards), who is a free agent, while bolstering their offensive line with the signings of tackle Nate Solder and guard Patrick Omameh. - Barkley, who originally committed to Rutgers university, crushed rushing records and stacked up elite highlights at PSU.
