NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks notes that "NFL scouts are encouraged" by Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon's "ability to be a feature back at the next level."
"As a runner, Gordon is a long strider with sneaky quickness and acceleration in the hole. He flashes explosive pitter-pat bouncing runs to the perimeter, but is more than a "one-trick pony" as a runner. Gordon effectively runs between the tackles on counters and powers, exhibiting enough strength and power to run through arm tackles in traffic. As a result, NFL scouts are encouraged by his ability to be a feature back at the next level," Brooks wrote. The 6-1, 203-pound Gordon led the nation and set the Wisconsin single-season record with an average of 7.8 yards per carry, while ranking 10th in the country and second in the Big Ten with 1,609 rushing yards.
