Recent News's Daniel Jeremiah ranks Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon as the No. 10 prospect in the class.
That's one spot ahead of QB Marcus Mariota -- Rotoworld's top player -- and four slots ahead of RB Todd Gurley. "Gordon is an ultra-productive runner with excellent quickness and elusiveness," Jeremiah wrote. "He presses the hole before picking and sliding his way through traffic. Once he sees some daylight, he shows burst and he excels at making defenders miss in space. He continually gets the edge on outside runs and he's produced a ridiculous amount of long runs during his career. He has an upright running style, and he's more likely to pull through tackles than lower his shoulder and punish defenders. He has soft hands in the passing game and he's an excellent pass protector. He squares up blitzers and delivers a strong shoulder before settling down and staying on balance. He should be ready to contribute on all three downs in Year 1." The 6-foot-1, 213-pound Gordon finished 41 yards shy of tying Barry Sanders' FBS single-season yardage record this past season. Jan 22 - 7:29 PM
