Saquon Barkley had a ridiculous, 41-inch vertical jump at National Football League combine

And why it doesn't matter to him where he does that. "Whether the ball is on the 99-yard line or the 1-yard line, I'm going to find a way to get into the end zone". I can do it all.

"I'm going to continue to try to be a leader and a competitor".

Running backs like Saquon Barkley and Nick Chubb put up ridiculously impressive totals in the bench press yesterday.

And that is run, catch and block better than most. So the only thing left to debate is whether he is also the best player in it.

The 4.41 40 was the latest athletic achievement for Barkley, a presumed top-five pick in the upcoming National Football League draft, at the Combine.

For as much talent as Barkley has on the field, he's almost as impressive off of it.

The Browns might have the best shot at grabbing this particular difference maker with picks at No. 1 and No. 4.

Saquon Barkley (26) breaks free of a tackel by USC during the Penn State gameagainst USC at the Rose Bowl Stadium on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017.

18 injured after reports of ferry explosion in Mexico, local officials say
The initial investigation has revealed the explosion was caused by a mechanical failure, according to Quintana Roo officials. Video taken after the blast and posted online showed at least two ambulances on the dock attending to some of the injured.

"Obviously, he's a tremendous football player, he's had a tremendous career", Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson said. This only solidifies what we've already known, and it sure is fun to watch. "The guy is a good player".

Running back is a position that seemed to be devalued for a few years, until Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott revitalized the Cowboys after being selected fourth overall in 2016. "So if someone makes me an offer I can't refuse, would I move back?" The Giants need a QB to take over for Eli Manning, but assuming the Colts are confident Andrew Luck will eventually play again, that would leave either Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, or Baker Mayfield for the Browns at number four. "It's all about accumulating talent". He reiterated that he meant it, too.

Barkley will demonstrate his explosiveness and power in the vertical and broad jumps, his breakaway speed in the 40-yard dash and his uncanny ability to change direction in the three-cone drill, especially for someone as strong as him. "But I do know that whatever team I go to, I'm going to work". I can go over the top of you.

Mayock talked about the deep quarterback class in 2018, which will certainly impact how other teams view the value of the Colts picking at No. 3 overall. A local kid (Glassboro, New Jersey) who came out of college with a lot of questions.

"The best scenario at running back is when you kind of have a 1-1A deal", he said. That's something bigger than yourself.

With Barkley in the backfield and Beckham at wide receiver, the Giants would immediately transform the offense into a potential juggernaut.

"Any team that wants to draft me", Barkley said, "is a blessing to me". "That's why any team that drafts me, you're going to get the same person - a competitor, a guy who's passionate about the game".
