Meet the GF of the potential top-5 pick.

The best running back in college football in 2017 is living the good life. Saquon is coming off an incredible season and recently signed a deal with Nike ahead of the NFL draft.

The former Penn State star is expected to be one of the first players taken. ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper has Barkley as his No. 1 overall prospect.

"I think he'll run under a 4.4 40-yard dash and test well at the combine. Barkley could be a top-five pick in 2018, and he's going to get an elite grade from me," Kiper says.

Barkley likely benefits from the success of the recent success other running backs have had after being top drafts picks. Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Leonard Fournette have all shown that star running backs have a place in the league, and are worthy of a top-10 pick.

The running back's life off of the field seems to be going pretty well, too. Barkley has a longtime girlfriend in Anna Congdon, a fellow Penn State student.

Life is only going to get better for the pair as Barkley looks to shine in the NFL combine en route to becoming a top draft pick.
