Risk vs. Reward: What to expect from Melvin Gordon in 2015

This year, like every other year, the NFL is about to receive an influx young, talented players that will have an immediate impact in the realm of fantasy football.  However, if history has taught us anything it is that some of these rookies will shine (Odell Beckham Jr, Jeremy Hill, Mike Evans) and some of them will fade (Eric Ebron, Johnny Manziel, Bishop Sankey).  The question...

Melvin Gordon takes random shot at Iowa

Former Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon is no longer technically a Badger, but apparently, that doesn’t mean he’s gained any love for school rival Iowa. Gordon, who most likely watched both Wisconsin’s contest against Coastal Carolina and Iowa’s game against Davidson last night, woke up this morning and decided to share his hatred of the Hawkeyes with his Instagram followers...

Armchair Scouting Reports: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin

What the Film Shows Similar to Marcus Mariota, I often find it difficult to evaluate Wisconsin backs due to their consistently potent offensive lines. Gordon makes the most of terrific blocking as a part of a great Badger scheme. He is patient, willing to wait for holes to develop, and uses jump cuts to navigate [&hellip (Visited 2 times, 2 visits today) The post Armchair Scouting...

Melvin Gordon: Falling Short Of Barry Sanders’ Record “Sucked A Little Bit”

Melvin Gordon was an absolute monster for Wisconsin in 2014, rushing for 2,587 yards and 29 touchdowns, and posting a crazy 7.5 yards per carry on the season. Even with those ridiculous numbers, Gordon fell 41 yards short of Barry Sanders’ single-season NCAA record of 2,628 yards. He was asked about the record, and admitted that he was a bit disappointed that he couldn’t break...

WATCH: Melvin Gordon Destroys Auburn with Epic TD Run

Some said Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was overrated. Some said he wouldn’t produce at a high level in the Big 10. Heck, some have even said he’s not going to be a good pro. We wonder whether those people watched Gordon’s ridiculous touchdown run against the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day.

The junior Wisconsin running back, through three quarters, has already rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns against Auburn in Thursday’s Outback Bowl. His latest score showcased why he’s considered one of the best running backs in college football. Facing a 4th-and-1 on its own 47-yard-line, Wisconsin, trailing...

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon Says Pittsburgh’s Paul Chryst Would Be A “Great” Hire For The Badgers

In all likelihood, Melvin Gordon’s final game as a Wisconsin Badger will come playing under Barry Alvarez, who is coaching the team’s bowl game against Auburn Jan. 1. Gordon, a redshirt junior, is likely to declare for the NFL following this season.  So, the Badgers’ Heisman finalist doesn’t really have to worry about who will be replacing departed coach Gary Andersen. Still...
