Listen: Saquon Barkley, Giants, Barkley Dickerson discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"All right. If we redraft the draft, mclovin. Yes. Going to redraft the draft. Okay. Is Baker Mayfield junior third. Still the number one pick by the Cleveland Browns. Is there anybody who take somebody different with the Cleveland Browns? Then Baker Mayfield. Knowing what you know now. Okay. Number two pick the giants knowing what you know now. And I'm looking at the numbers by saquon Barkley shake one Barkley is going to have a thousand yards. He has seventy four catches right now for six hundred yards. So he's going to get close to two thousand yards from scrimmage. Does anybody? Take somebody different there, by the way. Eric Dickerson at twenty two hundred yards from scrimmage in one thousand nine hundred three entering James had twenty one hundred in nineteen ninety nine both of those players were older than saquon. Barkley Dickerson was twenty three at the time edge was twenty one just to give you some perspective on the year that saquon Barkley his hip. Hip. Can you make the point that saquon Barkley? Even though he's he's the guy to get as far as running backs go. He wasn't the right pick for the giants at number two Bali. Yeah. I didn't like the pic, then I don't like it. Now, they're paying too much for the running back and they're in three years. I got to pay for him. Again. They should have traded down with the jets the jets and taking a either quarterback or the best position. Okay. But are you know, you gotta tell me who you're taking if you're the giants in the number two spot. I would've taken trading down to the jets. The jets are going to go up and get Sam darnold. So then who are you taking taking Quinton Nelson and taking the jets threat picks and that That of. would have gone with his Josh Allen scary. But the giants thought that they could win. Now, they rolled the dice on ally. And they thought if you have Odell Beckham and you had saquon Barkley you had two of the most dynamic players in football. And you were hoping that ally manning was going to be able to play. Well, but more importantly, the defense was going to live up to its billing and paycheck. If I trade down. You're still not getting a quarterback and everybody still thinks that you gotta take Sam darnold. Mclovin. I I agree with Paul. He's logic. I would probably go Sam darnold where Barclay to Philip Lindsay's. Awesome. And he was drafted. There's this thought out there. You can find them. Yeah. How many teams passed on? Lindsay wasn't even draft. He wasn't drafted right. Yeah. But it's like you look at the great running back. They all come in the third round, Alvin, Kamara okay? All those teams passed on him. No. I'm just saying like it just feels like you could wait oughta running back. But you I know, but we love to say that. But you have to find that running back. We'll continue this next down. I I was in for saquon Barkley because I understood what the giants were trying to do it didn't work out. But the consolation prize is you have a guy who's going to count for almost two thousand yards from scrimmage. That'd be third old time running that Rick Bucur had the column on Kevin Durant. He's come up. Cast one is your one stop shop for everything TV and pop culture of very candid, not even supposed to be on the record conversation."
