Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
Barkley is arguably the top running back in college football. He also happens to be a local kid from Whitehall Township, a suburb of Allentown, a little over an hour away from Philadelphia. It almost seems too good to be true, but Barkley is certainly a candidate to end up being the Eagles’ first-round selection next year.
As a sophomore in 2016, Barkley ran for 1,496 yards and 18 touchdowns with an average of 5.5 yards per carry. He also caught 28 balls for 402 yards and four more scores. Barkley is a shifty back who can run, catch and even block at a high level. He would be a dream for Doug Pederson and company.
