So says Todd Gurley, the league's new highest-paid running back and Barkley's summer workout partner. The former Georgia star made the transition to 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year with ease -- and thinks Saquon is set to do the same.
"I told him the NFL is probably going to be a lot easier than college," Gurley told The Rams Wire. "As far as the schedule, the pound and ground on your body."
Those three -- Barkley, Gurley, and Fournette -- are all freaks of football-playing nature. Most of Barkley's fellow rookies will need to make a speed adjustment or two over 16 games.
Gurley doesn't foresee Barkley ever hitting the proverbial rookie wall, though.
