Just two short years ago, we heard things like “this kid is the best running back to come out of college since Adrian Peterson,” and that he’s “a rare blend of speed and power.” Fast forward to 2017 and we’re hearing things like “he’s the next Trent Richardson, doesn’t matter who his coach is,” and that “his team is so awful, he’ll be in the same situation as he was last year.” The player I’m talking about is, of course, Todd Gurley.
The funny part is that I left out what happened in between those two extremes, but that’s what we’re here to discuss today. Should you be drafting Gurley in 2017? Not just that, but where should you feel comfortable drafting him? You’ll hear all the pros and cons, but the information presented should make the decision much clearer for you.
