After his tremendous performance at the NFL Combine, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has become the player most often selected for the New York Giants in our updated mock draft tracker.

Barkley is the choice at No. 2 overall in 14 of the 35 mock drafts in our tracker, which works out to 40 percent.

Quarterback is still the most popular choice for the Giants, with 17 of the 35 mocks (48.6 percent) selecting a quarterback. Josh Allen of Wyoming and Josh Rosen of UCLA were chosen in six mock drafts, and Sam Darnold of USC was the choice in five.

Here is what Barkley’s spider chart looks like after his Combine performance.
