ARLINGTON, Texas – Saquon Barkley weaved in and out of radio row as cameras flashed and the Dallas Cowboys faithful looked on from the upper level, showering him with jeers.
“I already have Cowboy fans yelling at me saying they’re going to run me over and stuff,” Barkley said with a smile.
Welcome to draft night at AT&T Stadium where the former Penn State star was selected No. 2 overall by the New York Giants and thus became public enemy No. 1 for those with the Dallas star plastered on their jerseys, hats and in some cases skin, too. It will be part of this heated rivalry moving forward, one that Barkley was introduced to on one of the biggest nights of his life.
