The Philadelphia Eagles have a new workhorse running back.

Saquon Barkley is a marque name in the league, and he’s looking to get even better entering his seventh season in the league.

He’s been a stud since he entered the NFL, but now that he’s a veteran, he’s finally realizing why.

Talking to the Kelce brothers on their New Heights podcast, Barkley admitted that he hadn’t actually realized how incredibly good he was in college until now.

Travis was in disbelief at what he said, and he recalled the time he hurdled over a defender and got tackled mid-air vs. Iowa, yet he still managed to land on his feet and keep going.

Of course, it takes a special kind of talent to go No. 2 overall as a running back in today’s game, and no one ever complained about that selection, so that speaks volumes of how talented and athletic Barkley was in college.

His three-year stint at Penn State was remarkable, as he ran for 3,843 yards and 43 touchdowns.

It didn’t take long before the league realized that Barkley was a superstar in the making.

Even with a flurry of injuries, he’s still considered to be one of the best and most impactful backs in the game, and he was always the best player on the field when the New York Giants were on offense.

And now that he’s back home, Giants fans should be scared of what he’s going to do.
