    **Overall Summary**

    Good but not great inside runner, with similar jump cut, stiff arm, spin move, and ability to break tackles. Great A+ vision, insane acceleration, and great-elite speed makes him a huge home run threat anytime he bounces outside. Would be scary in a zone run scheme. Solid hands in receiving game along with great speed. Wasn’t utilized here like he could be.

    Awful pass protector. Doesn’t wow you running inside the tackles. Fumbling issue somewhat.

    Reminds me much more of Demarco Murray than Jamaal Charles.

  • Scouting Report: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin

    Submitted by Adam Bershad on Friday, February 20th, 2015



    • Breakaway burst, amazing speed first few steps
    • Sometimes great pass protection (week one, blows up player) but always willing
    • plays out wide
    • Can burst through holes
    • Can beat defender around edge
    • Makes good yardage up the hole for his weight
    • Will fight to stay up, good at breaking tackles at full speed
    • Great one way change of direction + burst
    • Stays up with play to block
    • Great size for position

    • Doesn’t consistently have long speed, ends up getting caught from behind when not much separation
    • Fumble issues

    Pos: Explosive out of cuts, Freakish size/speed combo (6’1 about 210 with scary speed), Very good vision, Extremely productive, Smart/Patient runner follows blocks,

    Neg: Wisconsin system hasn’t put out elite Backs, not much of a receiver, could use his size more to his advantage

      JHlava5 Gordon doesn’t have the same wear and tear as the typical Wisconsin RB. so i don’t think that will be an issue
