In the "5 takeaways" article, Giants.com reporter John Schmeelk said: "Barkley dropped only one or two passes throughout all of spring practice and ran every route you want a running back to run. He caught passes in the flat, over the middle on circle routes, and deep down the field on wheel routes. Linebackers have absolutely no shot of covering him. We’ve also seen a lot of empty sets from the Giants offense, with Barkley (and other running backs) split out wide." It's just another indication of the special talent that Barkley is. He's the complete package of raw power, agility, speed, intelligence wrapped into a humble, hard-working, package. While he's the easy choice as the top rookie off the board in rookie drafts, Barkley is also currently RB2 overall on DLF's running back rankings and his ADP (6), believe it or not, is still climbing. Barkley is a generational talent who is good enough to be selected highly as a cornerstone piece even without having played a snap yet in the NFL.
