Todd Gurley is this low on the list for two reasons. First is the obvious, he’s a rookie. It’s hard to power rank guy that has never played a down in the NFL. I Do believe that Todd Gurley was the best college running back and the most NFL ready out of the bunch. But can he stay healthy?
Right before the NFL draft I interviewed Dr. Stewart of Shoreline Orthopedic about how ACL injuries affect NFL players. The re-injury rate is a bit astounding. I can’t help but think that Gurley will get hurt again.
Until he proves otherwise, he’s going to rank low on any of my lists.
