The Giants has interest in No. 2 pick but had such a strong conviction in Barkley. Never really considered trading. Gettleman talked to teams but "not a lot." DG: "[Browns] took Mayfield, we were taking Barkley. End of discussion."

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Dave Gettleman: Giants thought Saquon Barkley was the "best player in the draft." He hadn't seen a player like this in 30 years.

Giants select Barkley with No. 2 overall pick (0:46)

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

No Giants running back in history has scored as many as 150 fantasy points in his rookie season. Saquon Barkley should get there and tack another 100-plus onto his 2018 tally.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Saquon Barkley brings upper-tier versatility and big play speed to the Giants offense. At 6-foot, 233 pounds with 4.40 speed, Barkley can handle high-volume touches in the run game and create matchups as a receiver out of the backfield.

Giants prioritize run game by picking Barkley

The New York Giants added another weapon to their offense with the selection of Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick.

Bill Barnwell ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants add Saquon Barkley to their stable of playmakers on offense alongside Odell Beckham and Evan Engram, where he should serve as the franchise back the team's lacked since Ahmad Bradshaw left town. It'll be interesting to see whether the Giants use Barkley on returns; usually, highly-drafted players who were devastating return men in college (like Reggie Bush) end up coming off return duties to help stay healthy in the pros. Now, will Dave Gettleman add offensive linemen to help block for his new star back?

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants take RB Saquon Barkley. No. 1 player on their board. Pass on Sam Darnold.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Baker Mayfield goes No. 1 to the Browns. Giants in a power position here with Sam Darnold on the board. Trade realistic here. Or take Darnold or Saquon Barkley. Or even Bradley Chubb.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants sitting at No. 2 have options. A lot depends on where the Browns go at No. 1. Saquon Barkley, Bradley Chubb and Sam Darnold the most likely options.

Collins: 'It'd be crazy' to have OBJ and Barkley (1:01)

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

RB Paul Perkins not participating in Giants minicamp because of a pectoral injury. It occurred before the offseason program and he had a procedure. The Giants are short on running backs right now. Hmmmmmm.

NFL Nation Mock Draft: Giants go with Barkley at No. 2 (1:59)

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

If the Giants draft Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick, he'll need to be one of the league's very best running backs right away to justify his compensation. If drafted at that spot, Barkley would be the fourth-highest-paid running back in terms of average annual value (AAV), according to draft slot contract information from OverTheCap.com. By comparison, Bradley Chubb would be the 21st-highest-paid defensive end in terms of AAV, and a quarterback at that No. 2 spot would be the 25th-highest-paid QB assuming the Browns select a quarterback first overall.

Giants open minicamp today. Expectation is that Odell Beckham Jr. will be there although not practicing as he continues to rehab, per sources. Ereck Flowers ... less optimism.
