UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Saquon Barkley discussed the logistics with his family and girlfriend, opting to head to Dallas for next month's NFL Draft, all the while realizing that there's only one thing that could prevent him from walking across the stage when the NFL commissioner calls his name.
It just so happens to be a pretty big deal.
"The baby is due April 14," Barkley said with a smile Tuesday following Penn State's pro day. The draft is slated for April 26-28. "Not sure the gender, that's going to be a surprise so April is going to be a big month for me. I tweeted out the other day that big blessings are coming my way or something like that. A lot of people thought that I was just talking about the draft, but I was also talking about my kid. I'm excited. Some people aren't even blessed with the opportunity to have kids and I'm blessed to have one and I'm truly excited to have one."
