Saquon Barkley is a physical freak. That much was clear at Penn State, and backed up when the Giants made him the second overall pick. A new picture of Saquon Barkley’s legs is going viral, and you’ll know why in a second.
Barkley attended a Giants golf outing on Tuesday. It probably isn’t overly surprising that based on some of the videos taken off of Snapchat from the event, that he looked pretty good out on the course. That is especially true when you envision him running through arm tackles this year.
One particular screenshot is getting passed around. In it, Barkley’s legs look absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah, that is a guy who may be able to do some things on the football field. Tree trunks is pretty apt.
Twitter has had plenty of fun with the picture of Saquon Barkley’s legs.

Barkley rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons with Penn State. Last year, he added a career high 632 receiving yards as well.
In both 2016 and 2017, he rushed for 18 touchdowns. He finished his college career with 51 total touchdowns from scrimmage.
Barkley also returned two kicks to the house this season, and threw a touchdown pass for good measure. Throw in some golf, and yeah, he does it all.
The Bronx native will play for his hometown New York Giants, after the team elected to go with him over a host of quarterbacks available. He joins an offense that features Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr., with sights on having a similar immediate impact as Ezekiel Elliott a few years ago.
Barkley will officially begin his NFL career on September 9. That day, the G-Men host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
