Welcome to the league, rookie! For the skeptical football public and New York Giants fans who may have doubted the team’s decision to select Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick instead of a quarterback, his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars and this run put all doubts to rest.
There are not many players and running backs who could do what the young rookie just did right there.
His ability to make people miss, shed tackles, get horizontal instantly and round the edge to take it nearly 70 yards for the score is just seriously special stuff. And against that elite Jaguars defense, no less??
Yeah, I think the Giants organization can sleep at night knowing they have a superstar on their roster, and it didn’t even take a week into the regular season for the rest of the world to learn that fact.
