From a salary cap standpoint, Barkley's salary cap hit as a rookie will be about $5.7 million, which will be the No. 8-highest in the NFL. From a depth standpoint, there are about six running backs that figure to be drafted be No. 20 and No. 66, which overlaps the Giants' second- and third-round picks.
