New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley isn’t even on the field and he’s still racking up honors, mentions and accommodations with the most recent coming courtesy of CBS Sports.

In taking a page out of Pro Football Focus’ book, CBS Sports compiled their own list of the top NFL players under the age of 25 with a minor twist — no rookies allowed.

Unsurprisingly, Barkley made the cut.

19. Giants RB Saquon Barkley (22)

Again: We’re not going to get into the Giants’ decision to draft Saquon Barkley over Sam Darnold. That’s irrelevant for the purposes of this list. What’s good is that they at least drafted one of the best running backs in football. It took Barkley one season to prove his worth.

In 2018, despite playing with a washed up quarterback and running behind an offensive line that was among the worst run-blocking units in football, Barkley managed to eclipse the 2,000-yard (from scrimmage) threshold while scoring 15 total touchdowns. Nobody in football gained more yards than Barkley last season. Of his 1,307 rushing yards, 872 of them came after contact, according to PFF, which really highlights just how bad his supporting cast was. Barkley only ranks behind the remaining two running backs because they’ve been at the top of their game for a longer period of time. If Barkley does what he did in 2018 again in 2019, he’ll move up the list. And I have no doubt he’ll do exactly that.

No other Giant made the cut despite a few strong potential options (Evan Engram, B.J. Hill, Jabrill Peppers).
