Barkley, whom PFW draft expert Greg Gabriel graded as a top-five prospect in the 2018 National Football League draft class, is the increasingly rare breed of feature runner who's equally electrifying using strength, speed and suddeness as a runner, receiver and returner. "I've got no use for any offensive skill player that can't catch, and the running back's no different". In the 2016 NFL Draft, they took Ezekiel Elliott fourth overall, unearthed Dak Prescott in Round 4 and improved to 13-3.

"That'd be awesome", the Penn State running back said Thursday at the scouting combine.

By the end of sophomore year at Penn State, Barkley was a star, rushing for 1,496 yards on 272 carries and 18 touchdowns. If you discount the idea of trading down, which I think they have to be aware of, especially given the quarterback rush this year.

In the last three drafts, five backs have gone in the first round, including four in the top 10 and two in the top five. One NFL source told PFW that the media makes too much of the question.

And that brings us to Barkley, whose hype is overshadowed only by the potentially unprecedented depth of this year's quarterback class. But Barkley is the best overall talent in the draft, and if he's available expect the Colts to take him on draft day. He could be a good starting running back for them.

During Barkley's interview session he referenced many teams but seemed to always circle back to the Browns. And depending on who has the draft capital to move up, I think you have to listen.

"He's a guy that I think is going to run fast", Mayock said. I can go over top of you.

Only once in the last 30 years have the Broncos used their first-round selection on a running back - Knowshon Moreno in 2009 - and since John Elway joined the front office seven years ago, they've never drafted one higher than the 58th overall pick - Montee Ball in 2013.

"You want to be a complete back". Well, the Cleveland Browns own the top pick, and, as usual, they'll have to decide between addressing their greatest need and taking the best player available.

One like Alvin Kamara, the 2017 offensive rookie of the year who had nearly 730 yards rushing and almost 830 yards receiving, was in New Orleans. Later, he dazzled at the bench press, recording 29 reps at 225 pounds. That's something bigger than yourself. "That's what our position should be about and I try to model myself after that". "That's not to say whoever the first running back is taken can't be a franchise difference-maker, so that's how you have to look at these things, as well".

Even if, Barkley said with a smile, that means he winds up with a team that has only one victory in the past two seasons. "That's something you'll leave a legacy". "Being part of something special". "I've ranged anywhere from 228 to 232", Barkley said.
