Although ESPN's Todd McShay doesn't believe Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon III has the home run speed of Jamaal Charles, the analyst thinks the Badgers' back's stock is on the rise.
"[Against LSU, Gordon] displayed excellent vision and patience and was running hard behind his pads," McShay wrote. "He did get tracked down from behind on one long run -- that's the difference between Gordon and Jamaal Charles -- but he still showed great acceleration off his plant foot and good lateral agility to make defenders miss in small creases." It wasn't all good news from the marquee matchup, however: "I'm still uncertain as to why his role was limited in the second half; after 12 carries in the first half, he had just four in the second," McShay wrote. "He is still a work in progress as a route runner, as he doesn't appear to have a good natural feel (no catches versus LSU, only three in his career), although he did look improved in pass protection Saturday night."
