LOOK: Saquon Barkley’s 2018 NFL combine compared to OL, WR numbers will blow your mind

There is no doubt who the top performer was from Friday’s action at the 2018 NFL Combine. Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, who sits atop plenty of draft boards, dominated the competition with eye-popping workouts during his time on the field and near the weights in Indy. 

But it wasn’t just the competition that Barkley dominated. He put up numbers that were comparable for elite players from other positions as well. 

If that’s not clear, try this on for size: he benched more reps than current Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas (a top-five pick) did at the combine, he ran the 10-yard split faster than speed demon DeSean Jackson did, he ran the 40-yard dash faster than potential Hall of Fame return man Devin Hester did and he had a higher vertical than Julio Jones

That’s somehow a thing that is possible, although it doesn’t seem like it should be. 

Worth remembering that Julio participated in the combine with a broken foot and still ran a 4.42. So maybe he was limited a little bit. But still, these are bananas numbers from Barkley. 

Let’s put them in some perspective from previous year performances by other running backs. 

The Henry run is almost nearly as impressive at 14 pounds heavier, but Barkley
