Saquon Barkley To Appear On NFL Films’ ‘Hey Rookie’

Saquon Barkley has been spending his time preparing for the 2018 NFL Darft training at the Tom Shaw Performance Camp at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. Barkley and Marcus Allen took a break from training this weekend to visit Gatorland while shooting an episode of NFL Films’ “Hey Rookie.”

“Hey Rookie, Welcome To The NFL” follows first-year NFL players and chronicles their lives from draft day to training camp to game action.

Barkley and Allen have shown their infectious personalities to Penn State fans throughout the years, but with more national attention, the rest of the country will start to fall in love with the two players, too.

Barkley and Allen are two of eight former Penn State players that will compete in the NFL Scouting Combine beginning March 2. Barkley is already currently considered a consensus top-five pick in the draft, while Allen will need strong performances at the Combine and Pro Day to impress scouts into making him a mid-round draft selection.
