Elite Mens Joe Namath Jersey Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, is easily No. 1 in the early race for offensive rookie of the year. But the Associated Press version of the award, given out at the NFL Honors, has not gone to the early running back favorites over the past two years in the Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott and the Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette.
Although Elliott was voted Sporting News Rookie of the Year in 2016, it was Cowboys QB Dak Prescott who took home the AP award. Last season, Saints running back Alvin Kamara swept both awards.
Barkley will step into a feature role in the Giants’ offense behind an improved run blocking line and will be playing off a dangerous passing game. He can put up big rushing and receiving numbers with no competition from teammates in the backfield.

I was surprised when they took a quarterback because I thought that maybe in the third round, you know you can get some really good football players that can help this team now, Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan, via espn.com. Nothing against Mason; I think he’s a great football player. I don’t know him personally, but I’m sure he’s a great kid. I just don’t know how backing up or being a third [string] 鈥?well, who knows where he’s going to fall on the depth chart 鈥?helps us win now.
