Despite report, Saquon Barkley says playing for Browns would be "awesome"

  • Saquon Barkley's Agent Kim Miale of Roc Nation at Penn State pro day

According to Baskin, Barkley's agents have gone as far as advising Barkley to refuse to play in Cleveland, but Barkley "never considered" that route as an option.

Barkley is seen as a generational running back in the mold of Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley.

Sports Illustrated reports that Barkley's manager has implored him to pull an Eli Manning and demand that the Cleveland Browns pass him over at No. 1.

In an SI cover story, Ben Baskin writes Penn State RB Saquon Barkley's "handlers" at Roc Nation "don't want him in Cleveland". "I think they want to stay at two and take an elite player".

Many mock drafts have Barkley going to the Giants with the second pick, but the Giants could end up trading the pick to Buffalo or another team looking for a quarterback, or the Giants could draft a quarterback.


The working theory is that Cleveland will select a quarterback at No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. That's where you can become the Face of the League.

With the Browns now holding the first and fourth picks, there's a good chance Barkley could indeed be Dawgpound-bound as the most well-rounded and highest-rated running back prospect many scouts have ever seen-not to mention, the top prospect at any position in his entire draft class. "Any team that wants to draft me and bless me with the opportunity to play for their franchise is a blessing". They want him to go second to the Giants and play in the media capital of the world. "We know he will be a resounding success for any team fortunate enough to select him".

The star running back out of Penn State is repped by Roc Nation, Jay-Z's full-service agency based in Manhattan, which boasts of a 15-man team surrounding Barkley to help build his brand.

"There are important people in (the Giants') building that believe in Saquon Barkley", McShay said in a conference call. "I think that would be the only possibility of a move". The Chargers did anyway and traded him to the Giants before the first round ended. "It just feels to me like it's inevitable that Saquon Barkley is going to be a New York Giant". Maybe it's what he plans on wearing soon every day to work.
