Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley had himself a weekend at the NFL Combine. He turned heads around the NFL with his speed and strength.
Saquon ran a 4.40 second 40 yard dash, bench pressed 225 lbs 29 times and added a 41 inch vertical leap for good measure.
One NFL assistant coach was so impressed with Barkley’s performance he said he would repeatedly punch himself in the nuts for the chance to draft him.
NFL assistant coach on Saquon Barkley: “I would punch myself in the nuts many, many, many times to be able to draft him.”

That coach means business, you don’t volunteer to punch yourself in the nuts otherwise. That’s not something you joke about.
These types of statements mean one thing, there’s no way the Browns draft him. They consistently strikeout with first round picks and this year will be no different.
