Saquon Barkley is going to hear his name called early when the 2018 NFL Draft kicks off this April.

Not long afterward, Nike welcomed him to the team. We’ve recently pegged Barkley as a top-six pick in our latest NFL mock draft. He’s a ridiculously talented player who can do just as much damage as a receiver as he will on the ground.
