Penn State RB Saquon Barkley was spotted wearing a Giants hoodie during a trip to the barber earlier this week, with TMZ snapping photos.
Sources told TMZ that the hoodie was given to Barkley as a gift by the Giants when he recently met with the team.
The Giants, who have the No. 2 pick in the Draft later this month, have been linked to Barkley, but most believe they will draft a quarterback from the group of USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, and Wyoming's Josh Allen.
However, GM Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur heaped praise on Barkley earlier this month.
"It's unusual," Gettleman said at the NFL Owners Meetings about Barkley's skill set. "I'm telling you, he can string together moves and get in and out of stuff. It's funny, I (watched film of) him right before I came down. He's unique, no doubt about it. He's big, he's powerful, he can step on the gas, he's got different levels of speed. And he catches the heck out of the ball and he sees the blitz pickup stuff.
"So, you know, he's unique."
Shurmur, who has stressed how important a running back is for his offense, reiterated how impressive Barkley is on and off the field.
"He's equally impressive, like the quarterbacks," Shurmur said. "When you watch his tape there isn't anything he can't do. He's really a pretty good pass protector. That's an important piece. And he can catch the football as well.
"He can do everything you're looking for in a running back, and he's a terrific human being as well."
