Saquon Barkley to be featured on ESPN’s Sport Science

ESPN’s Sport Science segments quantify ability in quirky comparisons, showcasing freak athletes — Odell Beckham Jr., Kevin Durant and Ray Lewis to name a few.

Add Penn State running back Saquon Barkley to that list.

Barkley, the Heisman-contending running back capable of breaking ankles and dusting defenders, will be featured on Sport Science at some point in the foreseeable future.

When exactly, we’re not sure.

But Barkley was going through drills with Sport Science host John Brenkus on Wednesday, and one could only imagine what Barkley’s speed and agility will be compared to.

We can safely assume he won’t be taking a bowl of Skittles to the face a la Marshawn Lynch — but whatever Barkley’s appearance entails, it’ll be interesting to say the least.
