Barkley's agent denies Browns told not to draft him

Qnc4xno9iyipzymaw7gs

Cleveland Browns NewsWith the NFL Draft finally within sight - and thank goodness, because the pre-draft spin and silliness seems to get more ridiculous every year - Sports Illustrated's most recent edition features multiple covers and features on two of the biggest names in this year's draft: Saquon Barkley and Baker Mayfield.

The talented Barkley is expected to be selected over the first few picks, with most projecting him to either Cleveland or NY, who have the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4 picks combined.

As great of a prospect Barkley is, he does not have any leverage.

Per Tom Rock of Newsday, ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay said Wednesday that Barkley getting selected by the New York Giants at No. 2 feels "inevitable".

"If ever there was an opportunity for a running back to (become the face of the league), this would be it", USC marketing expert David Carter told SI.

As for getting picked by Cleveland, specifically, Barkley went so far as to dream of the glory that would accrue from helping the long-downtrodden Browns win a championship, much as LeBron James did for the Cavaliers.

"As Saquon's agent, I can say on behalf of our entire team that we would be thrilled for Saquon to go to whichever team drafts him, " Miale told cleveland.com. Manning infamously refused to play for the then San Diego Chargers, thus resulting in the franchise's decision to trade him to the New York Giants.

We expect the Browns to take a quarterback at No. 1 and not consensus top prospect Saquon Barkley. However, during February's draft combine Rosen said, "I've never said anything about not wanting to play in Cleveland".

There appears to be a very good chance quarterbacks go with the first three picks, which would give the Browns a second shot at Barkley at No. 4, assuming Cleveland keeps that pick.

But the brand-conscious Barkley will continue to eye the No. 1 spot in the days leading up to the April 26 draft.

But Jacobs isn't the only former Giant who wouldn't mind see Barkley in blue. Barkley signed with Roc Nation and the group has a 15-person team around him, working tirelessly to make him the new face of the NFL.
