There are only three backs now in the league who can transform an offense like Barkley will - Le'Veon Bell, David Johnson and Todd Gurley - and none of those players compare to Barkley physically or were as polished as he is coming out of school.
From what Shurmur and Gettleman said on Wednesday, they may be leaning towards passing on a quarterback at No. 2 overall.
So the Browns' brain trust, with that coveted, but still blow-able No.1 pick, is shopping the Lucas Oil meat market for a quarterback.
Teams can sit down with as many as 60 players here for interviews.
But as Charles Robinson of Yahoo tweeted, Scarbrough has big hands for a running back.
Among the noteworthy measurements Wednesday were those for Texas offensive tackle Connor Williams, Ohio State center Billy Price and Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson - each projected as first-round picks in NFLDraftScout.com's dueling mock drafts.
The Giants have a history of finding gems in the late rounds, making them one of the most successful franchises in the National Football League over the last four decades.

ASUS says the dual-camera has optical image stabilization (OIS), electronic image stabilization (EIS), and it can record 4K video. Basically, Asus ZenFone Max (M1) is a smaller variant of the original Asus ZenFone Max Plus smartphone launched late past year .
Do they match what teams have seen on film?
The Baltimore Ravens have historically been one of the best teams during the draft. We got to witness a draft prospect like former UTSA Roadrunnders defensive end Marcus Davenport make rapid rise in the player pool during the Senior Bowl. "Everything else he does is outstanding - decision-making, accuracy, accuracy under pressure, and he makes plays inside and outside". It will be interesting to see how he tests this week, and what he looks like in the quickness drills.
When asked what were the strengths of this year's class, Licht immediately pointed to the "interior of both lines", also mentioning the running backs and cornerbacks.
"I didn't know anything about [him] when I first put his tape in", Mayock said in a conference call Monday. "I've got no use for any offensive skill player that can't catch, and the running back's no different". And when Dalvin went down, then we got Latavius Murray involved. "Because you know what?" Shurmur's emphasis on pass-catching could mean Darkwa's Giants days are finished since, despite a career rushing year last season, Darkwa's five drops in 2017 put him 55th of 56 NFL running backs, per Pro Football Focus.
The Giants have Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins under contract and Orleans Darkwa and Shane Vereen are free agents.
"I think it's too early in the process to really talk about where they are, where they rank or anything like that". Many say the team interviews are the most important but I think that's a blanket statement that's only important in some cases. "Teams are signing their own, and that's why drafting well is so critical".
I am staunchly opposed to taking a running back with a top pick, for most of the reasons listed above, but if I were going to take one in the top-10, Barkley would be the guy for the simple fact that he can make a significant impact outside of the run game.
