As it turns out, this Saquon Barkley kid may have a future.
The Penn State running back has all the tape anyone needs to see, but has put up strong numbers at the Scouting Combine to convince any skeptics who might still exist.
On NFL Network, Griffin said that after his impressive 4.38-second 40-yard dash, he started suffering from cramps that affected him for the rest of his workout.

That’s why I feel the Pro Day, when I’m training with my brother, he’s going to be my coach for the month until my Pro Day, I can show what I can do in those drills at 100 percent, Griffin said.

Previous mid-round picks, like Curtis Joseph Jersey Jay Ajayi (8.65) and Michael Turner (7.67), have turned their tools into strong NFL seasons.
