He was one the heaviest running backs here at the National Football League combine, yet blazed the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds.
Barkley said in a segment on NFL Network that he has met with the Broncos among a handful of other teams at the Combine, and it would be a surprise if the Broncos didn't have Barkley out to the team facilities for a pre-draft visit given how high they are picking in this draft.
The NFL Combine is a proving ground for the nation's elite prospects.
On Thursday, Barkley, who measured 6-feet, 233 pounds, did 29 reps on the bench press (fellow running back Nick Chubb also recorded 29), which was better than all but five of the 36 offensive linemen who took part in bench this year.
The Colts have a massive need to add a running back, especially now that they are parting ways with veteran Frank Gore.
Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends took the field Saturday in hopes of boosting their draft stock at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
The three-cone drill is meant to measure a player's ability to change directions while the shuttle run tests a player's lateral quickness.
Sunday: Defensive linemen and linebackers take the field for on-field workouts.
And over the first two days of the scouting combine, Barkley has done nothing to disappoint.
Considered a possible first-round pick entering the Combine, his pro projection will be all over the map after Friday's performance. They sought to bench 225 pounds as many times as they could.
"I'm a guy that understands my job isn't going to just be given to me", he said.
"Personally I feel like I'm a tackle, but I'm willing to play anywhere a team needs me", Williams said. You grow up as a little kid dreaming of playing in the NFL.
Lee was tied for No. 15 out of 17 quarterbacks in the 40-yard dash at 4.98, but had the second-best marks among quarterbacks in both vertical jump (32 inches) and broad jump (9-foot-7). Gesicki is one of four former Penn State players who are raising money for rare-disease research through the combine bench press. He told the NFL Network that he wanted to run the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds and reach 42 inches in the vertical jump.
The one player whose stock sunk on Friday was Oklahoma's Orlando Brown, who posted one of the worst 40-yard dashes ever.
