Saquon Barkley is still a special player
Even though New York Giants’ running back Saquon Barkley has been in the NFL for three years, he’s still under 25 years-old He doesn’t turn 25 until next February.
Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports has released a list of the “Top 25 Under 25” when it comes to NFL players and Barkley came in at number 14.
14. Giants RB Saquon Barkley (24)
Why isn’t he higher? Well, it’s not easy championing a guy who averaged 1.8 yards per carry in two games before blowing out his knee in 2020, not to mention at a position more dependent on other factors. Why isn’t he lower? Regardless of the position, Barkley remains a truly freakish athlete. Fully healthy, he’s a dual threat who can change an entire game with his speed and power.
Despite Barkley’s struggles to stay healthy he’s still one of the top young players in the NFL when he’s on the field. If he can stay on the field in 2021, the Giants will have a potent offense.
In case you’re wondering, number one on the list is Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, followed by Los Angeles Chargers’ quarterback Justin Herbert.
