Sorry, I can see how my post could be confusing, but I wasn’t trying to make an argument for Chubb over Barkley, or for Chubb at all. In fact, the point I was trying to make was that we shouldn’t be comparing Chubb vs Barkley, IMO. It should be Chubb vs other DE’s and Barkley vs other RB’s...in order to get the best value for your pick. If you feel like you can get similar production from another DE at pick 15 or in the 2nd rd then that’s what you should do. The same for RB and every other position.
And if we are ignoring positional value and just saying who is the best athlete in the class, I would probably agree that it’s Barkley.
