There’s a few people to keep an eye out for at this year’s NFL Combine. Saquon Barkley is one of them. We showed you his girlfriend earlier in the week, and now we have some video of the Running back benching 225 pounds exactly 29 times.
29(!) reps for RB Saquon Barkley. #NFLCombine

Very interesting the Jets, who have the 6th pick, are tweeting out video of a potential draft pick lifting weights. Barkley figures to be a top five pick, so it looks like wishful thinking on the Jets part.
Barkley is one of the greatest players in Penn State history. He burst on to the scene as a true freshman in 2015 and never looked back. He is second all time in career rushing yards for the nittany lions and he did it just 3 years. He is projected to go in the top 5 of the upcoming NFL draft.
– 3843 rushing yards
– 43 rushing touchdowns
– 1195 receiving yards
– 8 receiving touchdowns
– 2 kick return touchdowns
