Saquon Barkley now a favorite for the Browns' top pick

Saquon Barkley now a favorite for the Browns' top pick

Let's take a look at the winners on the first day of the combine.

Additionally, people might say, "well, why would the Giants pass on a quarterback if they hold more value than a running back?" Since 2000, there have only been three running backs weighing over 230 pounds to run faster than Barkley at the combine. He also put up a 10-foot-9 broad jump and 4.55-second 40-yard dash. Barkley is fantastic, but the NFL is still a quarterback-driven league. If the Steelers are going to draft a tight end, the best all-around option that they could get is Gesicki and he wouldn't require a first-round pick. That Barkley hit that 4.4 time was impressive because his film shows a player who is patient and reads his blocking well. He was nearly traded to the Browns a year ago.

Griffin is expected to be a mid-rounder like his brother.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo shared what he is hearing about what the Browns might do at one and four.

"Everybody in the stands was hyping me up". And only one other player - somebody named Bo Jackson - has done it since 1982. What he didn't do was run routes. Gesicki is basically an overgrown wide receiver more than a traditional in-line tight end, but with his size and athleticism, he can be a mismatch weapon if used correctly. In addition to posting great combine event numbers, he also impressed in on-field drills and likely moved past Orlando Brown Jr.

"He's Michael Vick", Mayock said. Barkley could be a generational player, and passing on more than one of those cost every Browns decision maker in recent history his job.

There were monster games against Nebraska (158 yards and three touchdowns), Iowa (211 yards and one touchdown) and Washington (137 yards and two TDs), but we're not talking Jim Brown here.

"I'm a playmaker, man", he said Saturday. This is all about competition.

Taking Barkley first means they take someone who is low-floor and considered can't miss. If you want proof of Webb's improvements, follow this link.

Before last year's draft the best quarterback prospect was Sam Darnold.

But our focus today is on a pair of D2 Football alums who both happened to play left tackle with their respective college programs. He ran a 4.40 40-yard dash, posted a 41-inch vertical and had 29 reps benching 225 pounds.

Just prior to 2009, running backs Reggie Bush and Ronnie Brown, were taken second overall.

The only top prospect who really seemed to hurt himself was USC's Ronald Jones, who came to Indy with a shot at climbing into contention for a first-round pick.
