If Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon III slips out of Round 1, ESPN's Mel Kiper believes that by definition he would become one of the draft's safest prospects.
"Given the injury questions any running back faces, Gordon is certainly not a safe pick in Round 1," Kiper wrote. "But he is close because if you can block for him, he can be a major difference-maker in his rookie season, so what you would lose in long-term certainty you'd win back in immediate production. Gordon is sneaky strong between the tackles and a home run threat any time he gets a crease. He's my best bet to be the first running back taken in Round 1 since 2012." We don't believe MGIII should be mentioned in the same category as Todd Gurley and we would disagree with any team that chose the Badger first. That said, Gordon is an extremely compelling prospect in his own right. Mar 31 - 12:32 AM
