Who will select Saquon Barkley in this year’s NFL draft? Nobody knows for sure but he has fans in a tizzy with his latest costume change at a local barber shop.
Forget Ezekiel Elliott. There’s an even better running back coming to the NFC East. Well, at least this picture says so.
Saquon Barkley decided to make his casual trip to the barber shop while wearing New York Giants apparel, as reported by TMZ Sports. However, it could easily be just to spite Philadelphia Eagles fans, seeing as how the shop was indeed in Philly.

The Giants, who have the number 2 pick in this year’s draft, have met with Barkley and that is likely where all this sweet swag came from. But will the Giants actually take him?
You have to admit, Barkley looks pretty good in Giants blue. Well, he’s had plenty of practice, donning the navy blue at Penn State for three seasons before declaring for the draft.
Last season for the Nittany Lions, Barkley rushed for 1,271 yards, averaging 5.9 yards per carry. He also caught 54 passes for 632 receiving yards in 2017.
The Giants could certainly use a back of his caliber alongside Eli Manning. Last season the Giants ranked 26th overall in the league with an average of 98.6 yards per game.
Clearly the choice of gear has to give us some sort of hint as to what is to come. Although TMZ Sports reports that this was just the first piece of clothing he picked up en route to the barber shop, you still have to wonder…
I guess we’ll find out for sure during the NFL Draft, which takes place on April 26. Until then, Giants fans just get to drool over these pictures, in hopes that his clothing choice will be something he’ll don for the next 10 years in the NFL.
