Default NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Running Backs

Melvin Gordon/RS Sophomore – 6'1", 207 pounds – Wisconsin

The redshirt sophomore has really come on this season since Montee Ball's departure. Gordon has rushed for 1,466 yards on just 181 carries, good for an outstanding 8.1 YPC and 12 touchdowns.

Gordon’s draft profile is intriguing based on several factors. For one, Gordon hails from “Offensive Line University” where pro-caliber offensive linemen seem to grow on trees.

This has hurt the image of Wisconsin running backs in terms of their pro potential due to coming from such a great system.

Current Denver Broncos rookie running back Montee Ball – a former Badger – has done an admirable job in spot-duty so far this season and can help buck this trend if his production continues to rise.

Ball was a second-round pick last year and Gordon has more physical talent. If Gordon can prove that his estimated 4.4 speed is legit at the NFL Combine, the end of the second-round should serve as the worst-case scenario for his draft position....http://www.footballnation.com/conten...ospects/27151/
