Penn State running back Saquon Barkley was already considered one of the best prospects in this year’s NFL draft even before the Scouting Combine. But when he put on an incredible display of strength, speed and athleticism in Indianapolis, the talk began that he could actually be the first pick in the draft. In fact, NFL Network is reporting that as of right now, Barkley is not only a strong candidate but probably the leader within the Browns organization to go with the first overall pick. In today’s NFL, it sounds crazy that any running back would go first overall. The last running back to go first overall was Ki-Jana Carter in 1995. NFL teams just don’t value running backs like they used to.
