The Giants could use their second-round pick (34th overall) and one of their two fourth-round picks to trade back into the first round if a quarterback they desire begins to slide.
Whoever ends up choosing Barkley can expect to be picking a lot later in next year's draft. Sure, USC quarterback Sam Darnold torched Penn State for five touchdowns, but the game's most spectacular play came via Barkley's legs - the same pair that could make him one of the top players picked in the 2018 National Football League draft.
Saquon Barkley is a 5'11 230 pound running back from Penn State.
Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen both say they're best QB in the draft
Josh Rosen is viewed by many as the top pro-ready quarterback in the 2018 draft, and he has an explanation for that. So, yeah, there's a line to be drawn and I've had my lessons that I had to go through the hard way, obviously.
With the running back class bundled up after Saquon Barkley, Jones' injury means teams will have to wait until USC's Pro Day to really see what he can do. "I think there's a good group of players, and so how they fit us, I think that remains to be determined yet".
His draft stock soared, though it was already high to begin with, after a domineering performance in Indy, generating buzz that he could be the first back to go number one overall since 1995 when fellow former Penn State star Ki-Jana Carter was picked by the Bengals. Even as the Giants drafted Evan Engram past year, he could be a good pick come Day 2 for the Giants as Gesicki is more of a pure tight end than Engram.
"I've never wanted to be like anybody", Barkley said. Of course not. In addition, the average career of a running back remains shorter than other positions.

Another key part of the NFL Combine are the interviews with teams in a "speed dating" format. He is a game-changer in the mold of Ezekiel Elliott but offers perhaps even more on the field and certainly isn't the question mark off of it that Elliott has proven to be. In four of the five seasons he played with the Colts, he rushed for over 1,000 yards. Things got even worse when he ran a slow 40-yard dash and put up historically low numbers in the vertical and broad jumps.
"Impact. Dynamic playmaker. I can catch, run, return, line me up wherever", he said. He rushed for 35 yards on 14 carries against woeful Rutgers, had 44 yards on 21 carries against Ohio State and was held to 56 yards on 20 carries against Indiana. Only one player accounted for more than 34 receptions or 396 receiving yards, and free agent Isaiah Crowell led the Browns with 853 rushing yards.
Two other big backs whose ultimate draft grades may hinge as much on medical grades as anything helped reassure scouts of their athleticism.
