How To Pre-Order Your Saquon Barkley Giants Jersey

NFL Draft 2018: 9 free agent options if Giants pass on QB | Who could join Eli Manning, Davis Webb? Pat Shurmur breaks down what he's learned about Davis Webb

Now that the Coplay, PA, native has finally been drafted by an National Football League franchise, it's time to buy his National Football League merchandise (unless you're an Eagles fan, of course).

I have a better chance of winning the lottery than a trade like this going through, but in all honesty, it actually makes a ton of sense for everyone involved. He's one of those guys that my mother could have scouted.

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. The Giants passed on an heir apparent to two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning for a runner that many think is the best to come out of college in decade. All four ranked in the top five in passing yards last season.

Barkley was selected No. 2 overall by the New York Giants.

In what was new general manager Dave Gettleman's first draft with the team, his close-to-the-vest mentality had the Giants holding all the cards of this year's festivities despite the Cleveland Browns owning the No. 1 pick. At the NFL Scouting Combine, Barkley tied for first among running backs in the bench press (29 reps) and was second in the 40-yard dash (4.40 seconds).

Said Greg McKenna, chief market strategist at futures brokerage AxiTrader, "The market does look a little toppish". Brent crude oil futures were at 74.27 per barrel at 0643 GMT, up 27 cents, or 0.4 percent, from their last close.


Gettleman has not been shy about the fact that he believes Barkley is a "tremendous" talent, and Gettleman's track record proves that he is not averse to picking a running back with a top pick. Look for Barkley to put up huge numbers for the Giants in his first year.

It also indicates the Giants did not feel any of the remaining QBs on the board were clear future studs, despite the quarterback frenzy surrounding them at the top of the draft.

This year's draft also boasts an impressive crop of quarterbacks, including USC's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Louisville's Lamar Jackson. Any of the next three teams - the Browns, Broncos or Colts - could snap up Barkley. The Jets hold the No. 3 pick and most certainly will use it on a quarterback. "At the end of the day, a great player is a great player".

Getting drafted was nice, but it wasn't the most significant event in Barkley's life this week.
