Barkley is so massively overrated its ridiculous. I will be happy as a pig rip for slaughter is he goes in the top 5 picks.
While none of know anything for sure I haven't disagreed as strongly with something on this board in a long time as this message. WE SHALL SEE!!!
We are getting a 3-4 DE so it doesn't really matter.
Where is the production that is my question. We just saw the stat showing he can't break tackles. He is supposed to be some wonder back and though I'll acknowledge he is probably the best back in the draft I see nothing to elevate him as high as people are saying and far higher than the legion of other good backs in this draft. The guy had a whopping 4 games of over 100 yards in reg season college last year. When I watched penn state he would rip off one really long run then be okay the rest of the game.
He blew up the combine but I say again where is the dominant production? It isn't there. I view him as a slightly better version of dalvin cook (who had better stats than Barkley did the last to years in college)
