Saquon Barkley has always been an elusive running back on the football field.
Ever since his days at Penn State, the young star has evaded defensive tacklers during plays.
However, the New York Giants star is now showing his elusive moves playing dodgeball.
While Vince Vaughn was nowhere in sight, the star running back gave a Hollywood performance in Las Vegas.
As a part of the Pro Bowl, Barkley and other NFL players took part in a game of dodgeball.
It was here where he was untouchable, as his opponent failed to hit him.

While two attempts were made in the video posted on the NFL’s Twitter account, they both ended with Barkley dodging those attempts.
However, the star running back will need to bring those skills to the Pro Bowl when it happens this Sunday.
With the game being a flag football game, he must avoid defenders reaching for the flag on him.
While the flag football format is new for the Pro Bowl, it offers Barkley a chance to showcase his elusiveness.
Instead of eluding tackles, he must elude the hands of defenders who are reaching out for his flag.
This makes the game both fun and difficult.
However, if the star running back can elude a dodgeball, he can elude a defender reaching for a flag.
While the Pro Bowl hasn’t seen the luster from years before, the new format is something the NFL hopes will take off with fans.
With Barkley in the Pro Bowl, he could give fans a reason to tune in and watch the Pro Bowl on Sunday.NEXT: Bengals Insider Clarifies A Tee Higgins Rumor
