Todd McShay Loves Penn State Running Back Saquon Barkley

The ESPN NFL Draft analyst very much likes the Penn State running back.

Todd McShay is checking out the film of a Big Ten star this afternoon.

It appears that he likes him.

The ESPN NFL Draft analyst is reviewing the tape of Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, a potential top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Based on this tweet from McShay, it looks like he's a pretty big fan of the Nittany Lions star.

It's tough for a college running back to have a more-impressive run than that one.

Barkley totaled 1,496 yards and 18 touchdowns as a sophomore last season. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining, but it'd be surprising if he's still playing for Penn State as a senior. Barkley enters the 2017 season as a Heisman Trophy candidate and potential first-team All-American.

The Nittany Lions, a preseason top 10 team, open their season on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Akron.
