2-Minute Morning (9-20): Is Saquon overrated? No, but the RB position is in the NFL

Saquon Barkley was held to 6 yards rushing on 15 carries last week by the Steelers, leading to a question this week around the NFL: Is the Penn State product overrated?

Cory Giger discusses that in this morning’s video.

The short answer, obviously, is no. Barkley is one of the most talented football players you’ll ever see.

But in Giger’s view, it’s not smart to draft a running back so high or spend tons of money on one, when the rest of your team has so many holes like the Giants do.
