Where should Saquon Barkley rank among current running backs?
One of the best running backs of all-time, Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson has released a list of the top running backs in the league heading into the upcoming season.
When it comes to Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants, he’s fourth on Tomlinson’s list. Here’s what he had to say about Barkley.
“Listen, this guy here is arguably the most talented running back, the most explosive running back in the National Football League,” Tomlinson said regarding Barkley. “But he’s coming off an ACL injury that he had repaired, and also had his meniscus repaired. I believe it’s going to be slow billing in the beginning for Saquon Barkley. But without question, this man is a home run threat every time he touches the football. He’s going to add a certain dimension to that offense that they didn’t have last year.”
If Barkley stays healthy this year and returns to his previous form, I’m not sure if anyone else in the NFL is better than him. The problem is it might be tough for him to stay healthy. This is why the Giants added Devontae Booker this offseason.
With Barkley’s rookie contract set to expire after the 2022 season, he needs to prove that he can stay healthy.
