Melvin Gordon: Gurley Not the Only Special Back


Melvin Gordon keeps up.

He knows what’s out there.

Be it chatter on social media or what he reads and watches elsewhere, the talk of this NFL Draft is there is a running back, Georgia’s Todd Gurley, who is special, a once-in-a-decade type. And then there is everyone else, Gordon the No. 2 with others falling into place.

He’s seen it. He’s heard it.

He doesn’t have to agree with it.

“I’m just as good as Todd. That’s my mindset,” Gordon said. “I’m as good as any other running back in here, if not better. I don’t like to talk highly of myself, but I don’t want teams to start thinking I’m not good enough because I am.”
