If he's picked in that spot, he'd be the first running back taken with the top selection since fellow Nittany Lions star Ki-Jana Carter went to the Cincinnati Bengals in 1995.

It's always fun to dream. Barkley said, "If you go to a team like that, obviously, they've had some rough years, but I think they're just a couple of pieces away", Barkley said Thursday.

According to a report today in the Oklahoma City Oklahoman, Brown ran the 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 5.85 seconds. Hernandez, who weighs 327 pounds and started 49 games, ran a 5.15 40 and is built like a bus. To add to that, the junior recorded a 41-inch vertical jump and ran a 4.4 40-yard dash. The same school which produced the last one could be responsible for the next one, and the Cleveland Browns could very well make it happen.

If Barkley does somehow fall to the Giants, it may be impossible to pass on him. He also managed a 26.5-inch vertical jump, 105-inch broad jump and did the 3-cone drill in 7.65 seconds. One of the first things you notice when looking at Barkley is physical gifts. That Barkley hit that 4.4 time was impressive because his film shows a player who is patient and reads his blocking well. "I don't believe in the whole 50-50 ball".

TODAY'S FORECAST: Snow, high near 32
While not almost as intense looking as our current storm, this one could bring us more widespread snow with some rain mixing in. Hurricane-force wind warnings up just offshore, coastal flood warnings and high wind warnings are up as well.

The Browns have a lot of holes to address on the roster after going 0-16 and taking a running back first overall hasn't happened since the Cincinnati Bengals took Penn State's Ki-Jana Carter in 1995, but it's time for history to repeat itself. Since 2000, there have only been three running backs weighing over 230 pounds to run faster than Barkley at the combine.

Why he's a good fit for the Falcons: An athletic defensive tackle, who has upside and could certainly improve under the tutelage of Quinn and defensive line coach Bryant Young.

Mayfield was in full form and rare form indeed. Gesicki, Troy Apke, Jason Cabinda and Grant Haley will participate to continue their affiliation with Penn State's chapter of Uplifting Athletes. "And when I'm working out, push the guys I'm working out with every single day and try to get better".
