And not just once, either!
While the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, and San Francisco 49ers all seem eligible to draft Penn State RB supreme Saquon Barkley with one of the top three picks in the upcoming draft, one NFL assistant is extremely jealous of their proximity to The God.
While rational thought says it's a tough sell to draft a running back so early due to their fungibility, our eyes tell us that Barkley rules and would jumpstart any team.
And, for one of the league's coaches, the opportunity to scheme for Barkley is worth an intense amount of nut pain.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Barkley's good enough to justify arching your hand, balling it up into a fist, revving up, then driving your knuckles repeatedly into your groin.
That 40 time, that vertical...yeah, all checks out.
But we implore this assistant to put his money where his mouth is. Seriously. Call the Browns, ask for a trade back, and promise to do the nuts thing. That's got to be worth at least an additional first.
