The hype surrounding Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is real, and he proved his worth at the NFL Combine with astronomical numbers. I mean, running a (4.3) 40-yard dash at 225 pounds is almost funny…
Where he could be picked:
We cannot rule out the potential drafting of Barkley by the Cleveland Browns at No. 1, and we need to prepare for that reality. So, what should the New York Giants do if they fall into that situation?
Well, we can assume one thing, their No. 2 overall draft pick will skyrocket further in value. It will put them in the position to take and of the top quarterbacks, and it will also up the asking price for other teams wanting to grab their future franchise signal caller.
If the Giants are in that position, they should absolutely shop the pick to the highest bidder. Worst case, they walk away with their choice of quarterback and live to see another day. Best case, they gather a plethora of picks and address multiple positions of need on the offense.
Of course this is very situational, but it’s best to be prepared just in case a major option is off the board when the Giants are on the clock.
