Report: After Impressive Combine – RB Saquon Barkley “Firmly in the Mix” for Browns as 1st Pick

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley seemed to do it all at the NFL Combine over the weekend, and now more than ever it seems that people feel that he could end up going number one to the Browns.

Ian Rapoport of seems to be on board with the Browns forsaking a QB with the first pick and picking the running back, stating that he’s “firmly in the mix at No. 1 for the Browns.”

Barkley bench pressed 225 pounds 29 times, and also did a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash, and overall was just impressive to the point of turning heads and there’s almost no doubt now that he’s the best player in the draft.

QB’s Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, and Baker Mayfield may have to wait till number four to get picked by the Browns if the they want a quarterback, and the Browns might just now be on board to take the sensational Barkley with the first overall pick.
