Barkley left Penn State early in 2018 to go pro, and he was selected second overall in that year’s NFL Draft. The running back is just the latest player to celebrate getting his degree after going pro early, which is a pretty cool accomplishment.
Barkley has been the subject of trade rumors lately, with the Giants not doing much to shut them down. He averaged 3.7 yards per carry for the Giants in 2021.
