Saquon and Jabrill

Found this article from three years ago - kind of a fun read now that they are both on the same team.

That's kind of funny

Why did he specifically mention those 2 players in his article ABOUT the article?

I still say looking back Saquon pound-for-pound should have been #1 in terms of "freakishness" on this list given the combination of his speed, size, and strength measurables

That listing at #9 is for Saquon as a freshman and Peppers as a Red shirt freshman? or sophomore.

Just to avoid any confusion, Feldman was FOX National, so they were singled out among the entire country. BTN focused on the Big10 players on his list.
Both now N.Y.Giants and yet

there are too many on BBI who call Gettleman a moron and want him fired.

Well of the 20 on the list, a bunch of them are do-nothings. So it's not an indicator of anything, really, let alone a reason to trumpet DG's insight or player evaluation skill.

This offseason, Barkley has also displayed some of that explosiveness, setting a program-record 390-pound power clean. He also had a 600-pound squat, to go with a team-best 4.38 40, a 10-foot-1 broad jump, a 380-pound bench and a 4.00 pro agility time, which would’ve been the quickest by any RB at the NFL Combine in 2016. (The quickest was a 4.12 by Northwestern’s Dan Vitale.)


Man, you forget what a specimen SB is...that strength and speed. Crazy.

Who forgets? Some guys are athletic freaks but it never translates to the field, But it Saquon's case, just like Barry Sanders' it's evident in an awful lot of his touches - many of them if not out and out most of them.

Just a little thing like the strength of his straight arm is freaking awesome. Baldy really broke him down beautifully.
