Giants superstar RB Saquon Barkley is usually humble, but even he had to agree he could be the best running back to ever play.

Barkley discusses that, the Eli situation in NY and how he was almost named “Tupac” after the legendary L.A. rapper on a new “Take It There with Taylor Rooks”.

“Tupac,” Barkley said. “Tupac Makaveli. My dad is a big Tupac fan… [It] was real close until my mom put her foot down.”

Saquon also talks about being one of the best to ever play the position. 

“I believe I can be the best running back to ever play the game,” Barkley said. “I don’t need to express myself or to go on a Twitter rant or go on a rant on ESPN. To tell people why I need [to win Rookie of the Year]… I don’t need to do that and if I did that wasn’t going to help me win or lose anyway. But, that’s what everyone expects me to do.”

Barkley is definitely the real deal.  

And Taylor Rooks isn’t too shabby either.
