Giants' Saquon Barkley feels Trace McSorley was disrespected at NFL Combine

Penn State quarterback Trace Mc Sorley runs the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday

Penn State legend Trace McSorley has an uphill battle toward securing a spot on an NFL roster as a quarterback, but he helped his case during the NFL Scouting Combine Saturday morning.

McSorley was asked to participate in drills with defensive backs at the NFL Combine.

National Football League teams can make requests for players to work at other positions during the combine. But he has refused the request, as many prospects do in the same situation.

To be fair McSorley did play some defensive back in high school, and National Football League teams surely uncovered that while vetting him as a draft prospect.

The request was met with disbelief by one of McSorley's former Nittany Lions teammates.

Edelman has played nine seasons in the National Football League, producing 499 catches for 5,390 receiving yards and 30 touchdowns. He's also the winningest quarterback in Penn State history.

At Penn State, McSorley set career records with 31 wins, 703 completions, 9,653 passing yards, 75 touchdown passes, 11,275 yards of total offense and 29 rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. So it's convenient for National Football League teams to think he can capably switch positions, even to the opposite side of the ball and a position he can't be projected to play with any confidence.

However, if the college quarterback were to make a position change, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton thinks the move would be to wide receiver.

Barkley has remained in McSorley's corner since being taken No. 2 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, making sure to take in several Penn State games and even going as far as to say the quarterback is "the greatest to ever put on a Penn State uniform".
