Giants reportedly view Saquon Barkley as 'a near-perfect prospect'

The New York Giants will control the direction of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns are picking No. 1, of course, but pretty much everyone expects them to take a quarterback with that selection before following it up with a player at a different position when they come on the board again at No. 1. Which means Giants hold a lot the cards at No. 2.

Do they want to take a quarterback as well? Might they nab Notre Dame offensive lineman Quenton Nelson, helping solidify what has been a truly dreadful unit over the last couple of years? Could they take North Carolina State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb in order to replace the departed Jason Pierre-Paul? Will they trade down in order to amass more picks and fill several holes on the roster?

Or will they stay put and become the third team in the last three years to use a top-five pick on a running back? According to the New York Post, that possibility might be more likely than any other. The Post reports that taking a quarterback and trading down are both unlikely, essentially narrowing down the options to Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barley.

The Giants view Saquon Barkley as a near-perfect prospect. They think he's a better player than Ezekiel Elliott, who went No. 4 to the Cowboys in 2016. All Elliott has accomplished is average 104.6 yards in his 25 NFL games, along with 22 rushing touchdowns in two seasons. He also has an entire offense built around him. The main difference? Barkley is a far superior pass-catcher. Plus, there are absolutely no character issues or concerns with Barkley.

"I thought all along this is the guy Dave wants,'' said a national NFL scout who knows Gettleman from crossing paths with him on the road over the years. "And he might get him, if Cleveland is dumb enough not to take him at No. 1."
