Saquon Barkley's agent denies report about trying to avoid Browns

Saquon Barkley's agent denies report about trying to avoid Browns

"I do think he has a real chance at No. 1".

As great of a prospect Barkley is, he does not have any leverage.

The athletic freak out of Penn State is threatening to go incredibly early despite being a running back, but a reports surfaced that people in his camp wanted no part of him being in Cleveland.

Baskin added that Barkley has told friends he has visions of bringing a championship to Cleveland and becoming a beloved figure in much the same way LeBron James did by leading the Cavaliers to an National Basketball Association title. The story reports that Roc Nation wants him to be drafted at No. 2 to the New York Giants so that he can "play in the media capital of the world", adding that Barkley's manager is urging him to "pull an Eli Manning and demand that the Browns not draft him". He believes that if he brings a championship to the Land, as LeBron did, he'll be hailed as the best athlete of his generation and have a statue built in his honor.

"If ever there was an opportunity for a running back to (become the face of the league), this would be it", USC marketing expert David Carter told SI. He probably then had to do some damage control just in case the Browns do select him - much like defensive end Myles Garrett had to after begging the Dallas Cowboys to draft him in 2017.

However, reports indicate his agent does not want that to happen. Sure, he likes the idea of being back in the city of his birth-even playing for the Jets, the team he grew up rooting for.

Manning, of course, forced the Chargers hands when he said prior to the 2004 NFL Draft when he said he did not want to play for San Diego prior to the Giants acquire him on a Draft day deal in exchange for Philip Rivers, a third-round pick and two first-round picks the following year.

We expect the Browns to take a quarterback at No. 1 and not consensus top prospect Saquon Barkley.

Rosen is in contention to go No. 1 overall, as are three other quarterbacks, listed in order of consensus expectation: Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

But Jacobs isn't the only former Giant who wouldn't mind see Barkley in blue. "It feels inevitable that Saquon Barkley is going to be a NY Giant".

Noted by Barkley's management team is Barkley's signing with Roc Nation generating 369 million online impressions.
