Saquon Barkley is loose. He is leaving Penn State and their infamous showers to enter the 2018 NFL Draft and become the best running back in NFL history or whatever. Who knows? He could be a total bust or tear an ACL or whatever. Life is hard.
But anyway, the New York Giants secured the No. 2 overall draft pick in that aforementioned draft and they can pretty much take any player they want. When you go 3-13, it’s safe to say that you have plenty of holes on your roster and can improve at just about every position. If it were up to the old GM, Jerry Reese, he’d use the second pick to draft a cornerback that would be off the team in 2 seasons or a 4th string wide receiver.
Should the New York Giants Draft Saquon Barkley?
The easy answer is yes and if this was 15-20 years ago then you 1000% pick up the best running back available. Barkley is the type of cat you hand the ball off to 35 times and just ride him all game long to set up 3rd and shorts.
But it’s 2018 and Eli Manning’s arm is about as strong as Cooper Manning’s nervous system at this point. He looks scared in the pocket, as he should be with Ereck Flowers out there getting embarrassed play after play. The Giants need a new GB1.
Enter Josh Rosen.
Bring in the next Super Bowl winning QB because it isn’t Eli anymore. Rosen to Beckham. I can already see that Super Bowl winning touchdown pass.
Saquon Barkley is going to be good and congrats to whoever drafts him. Hey, maybe he even slips to the second round and the Giants can scoop him up with the 34th selection but like, New York needs a Jewish hero and his name is Rosen.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think the New York Giants should draft Saquon Barkley. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
