NFL Scouts Reportedly View Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon As A “Top-15 Player”

According to Matt Miller of the Bleacher Report, scouts from around the league have him that
Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon is a “top-15 player” in this year’s draft class.

Miller doesn’t view Gordon as that kind of a prospect, but sources believe Gordon and Georgia RB Todd Gurley will ultimately be the top-two running backs on team’s draft boards this year.

Miller prefers Indiana RB Tevin Coleman to Gordon when it comes to the No. 2 running back, but he admits that the Wisconsin product could come off the board in the later portion of round one.

There was a lot of talk last year that Gordon would have been the No. 1 running back drafted had he declared. However, Gordon elected to remain at Wisconsin and make a run at the Heisman Trophy, which he wound up finishing as the runner up.

During his four-year college career, Gordon ran for 4,915 yards on 631 carries (7.8 YPC) to go along with 22 receptions for 228 yards receiving and 49 total touchdowns for the Badgers.
