I thought he looked really good down the stretch. He was elusive and decisive. He averaged 4.5 ypc in his last 5 games when he starting getting significant playing time.
What's his ceiling? Is he capable of being a quality starter, pro bowler even, or is he just a JAG?
This is not a thread about how not to draft Barkley, just wondering what we have here.
Where all thread titles MUST be stated in the form of a question.
He ran very well late in the season, but so did Perkins at the end of 2016. Then 2017 came and Perkins turned into Ron Dayne.
a good change of pace guy but his frame doesnt seem like one that will hold up as an every down back
I think they can both play, and if they can both build off of their previous success - we've actually got a pretty good rotation with Stewart.

I think he runs a lot like Rashad Jennings, although he's lighter. I always felt like Jennings' pad level was a little high, and I feel the same way about Gallman.
and decent change of pace back, but I don't see him as a featured back. I don't foresee any DCs losing sleep over having to face Gallman
then Perkins and Gallman are the symbols for Giants Running Back Hell. The Giants simply must get a big upgrade to the position in the 2018 draft...
OL will make them all look better
Barkley, Gallman and Perkins would be a really good stable of RBs. All have really good hands and can catch it out of the backfield. Barkley and Gallman both have some power and elusiveness, I love the thought of what the three of those guys can do in a real NFL offense.
He has some good upside. Perkins?.... He showed up incredibly Slow and Sluggish--Out of shape or shot body at a young age

George Young agrees with you. Draft BIG MEN to control the line first.
was surprisingly pleased with his rookie performance. He's got a decent level of talent and a nice compliment of skills. He's surprisingly strong for his build, though he's not a short yardage specialist as some tried to make him out.
I like using multiple RB's with different strengths in different situations. But I have every hope that with better blocking Gallman can be a very productive part of NY's offense.
D0nt kn0w if he is an every down back, but if he can hold up between the tackles, he could be a serviceable back. Could be a p00r man's feature back, 0r a g00d back t0 have if y0ur #1 goes down.
Look how well that worked out.
but he shouldn't prevent us from wanting to upgrade at RB.
