School: Penn State Position: Running Back Class: Junior Height: 5-11 Weight: 215 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-2
Built in the mode of a borderline “power back” at the next level, Barkley possesses an excellent blend of power and agility. Hits holes with superb balance, and can pivot and get to full speed very quickly. Very good open field speed and is a big play threat once he finds the open field. Is active in the passing game, and his ability to build on his receiving skills and pass protection will determine a lot about his draft stock.
