Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - In a draft loaded with potential starting quarterbacks, Saquon Barkley--college football's most dynamic running back--was taken second overall by the New York Giants.  Barkley, who starred at Penn State for three seasons, was born in the Bronx.

Barkley is the highest-draft Nittany Lions running back since Ki-Jana Carter went first overall to the Bengals in 1995.
