Joining Colin Cowherd on The Herd, former Penn State phenom Saquon Barkley explains how he and Odell Beckham Jr. would thrive together on the New York Giants. Is the Big Apple the best fit for Barkley?

- What if you go to the giant and Odell's pushing back, 'cause you're getting 21 carries, and he's getting 9-- he's getting 9 looks?

- Yeah, the way I view-- view that, actually, I've been able to have conversations with Odell. And I only could say great things about him and how he handle himself off the field.

INTERVIEWER: So you've talked to him.

- Yes-- yes, I have-- and how he works out and-- the-- the way I look is that going to New York and going to a team like that, I don't think we will step on each other's toes at all. He's such an elite receiver, and in my opinion, one of the best in the game. And that wide receiving core, then Eli Manning there, and God willing, if I'm able to have the success that I had in college football at the running back position, I have to demand attention. But then you can't take too much attention away from Odell. So it's kind of like pick your poison. So if I'm able to have the success I'm have-- I had in college, and surround myself with that wide receiving core, and that-- and Eli Manning, who-- who has two Super Bowl rings, I don't think it's stepping on anybody toes. But I am willing to come in to a locker room and say, be a leader. Obviously, that-- that's how I am. That's-- that's how I was brought up.

INTERVIEWER: Are you an outspoken guy?

- I-- I'm-- I do. I lead by-- I lead vocally.

INTERVIEWER: OK, 'cause I like vocal guys.

- Yeah.

INTERVIEWER: I don't buy into this I lead through actions. You have to talk.

- Yeah, you got to talk, yeah.

- Like, I like talkers.

- You have to talk, but you also have to lead by example, because you can't just talk about it and not-- not live up to it outside of the facility, or inside a facility when you're working out, or outside and just being a everyday person. If you're not handling yourself the right way, and you come in and you talk, it's-- it's-- it kind of-- it doesn't balance each other out. So I'm willing to be a leader, but I feel like with that team and that organization, I don't feel like we'll step on each other's toes at all. He's a great player, and I want to be a great player. And I feel like you want to surround yourself with great people.
