Saquon Barkley sees himself as 'good fit' alongside Odell Beckham and Co

It's very much hurry up and wait for Barkley now, as he awaits the National Football League draft in late April.

Chubb was asked about his combine experience Thursday and revealed National Football League clubs had a desire to take a closer look at his knee.

Well then, it sure sounds as if Shurmur could find plenty of use for Saquon Barkley, who has to be heavily in the discussion as their guy with the No. 2 pick in the draft.

The Browns have the first and fourth picks in the draft and seem like the most logical destination for Barkley, the former Penn State sensation.

Or opt for Door #3?

Some NFL scouts and executives are saying he's better than Leonard Fournette, Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott, three recent standout college running backs who were selected early in the first round and have turned into NFL stars.

"When he goes into meetings at night", Mayock said, "he's going to blow people away". He described Barkley as a "transformational back".

What does this performance mean for Barkley's draft stock?

. "But, like I said, I can't complain with the things I did today".

Can he jump? Don't think I need to answer this one. They've got a bunch of them.

Whether the Browns or not, Barkley says he's ready to go any team that would happen to draft him. "Even though I'm a rookie, I'm going to try to be a leader to the best of my ability and continue to work".

Most draft analysts expect at least four QBs to be selected in the first round: USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma Heisman Trophy-winner Baker Mayfield.

NFL Research tweeted that there was one player with 25 or more reps in bench press and a vertical of 40 or more inches in 2017: Myles Garrett, who went No. 1 in the draft to Cleveland and is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound pass-rusher. 1 and 4 - belong to the Cleveland Browns, a team that Barkley clearly has done his homework on.

We prefer standing pat and increasing the likelihood of adding a true difference-maker to a team that has only two: Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton.

Gettleman, it should be noted, as the Panthers general manager a year ago took multi-faceted running back Christian McCaffrey with the No. 8 pick.

Sayers was picked at No. 4 by the Bears in 1965.

Good enough to take with the third overall pick if he's available when Indianapolis goes on the clock? They would make history and buck conventional wisdom if they passed on a quarterback to take him. "Is this guy worthy of being the second pick of any draft?"

With that said, the top prospect also kept his options open by saying any team that picked him "would be a good fit".

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport could be counted among the many who were impressed with Barkley's display of strength. I don't know. I think everyone has their own perspective.
