Melvin Gordon is the next Adrian Peterson in the NFL. He is incredible in pretty much every possible way. Gordon is a dominating runner who seems to get stronger with every carry throughout a football game.
Gordon has the speed and the agility to avoid a lot of contact, but he doesn’t exactly shy away from any hit. He runs with a fury, grinding out the tough yards inside the tackles. On any run, he can take it all the way to the end zone.
Gordon’s productivity at the University of Wisconsin was truly remarkable. In 2014 he rushed for 2,587 yards. He even had a game in which he rushed for over 400 yards. Gordon averaged 7.5 yards per carry in his senior season.
There are few players more talented than Melvin Gordon, who is one of the best college football rushers I have ever seen.
