    **Overall Summary**

    Powerful drive, blows through arm tackles, body tackles, and gang tackles frankly. Impossible to bring down with just 1 defender. Good vision, sees cutback lanes and has the patience to wait for them to develop. Hits the lane hard and is just flat out ridiculous as a runner. Strong, very good but not elite speed. Fast enough to make the big play however.

    ACL injury is a bit of a problem obviously, wasn’t asked to pass protect that much, how quick will he pick it up.

    He is like a faster version of Steven Jackson to me…scary.

    Pos: Violent Runner, Freakish Size/Speed combo (6’1 232 with 4.4ish speed), Can outrun any defender, Drives through defenders on contact, Most Complete/Elite back Since Peterson, HOF Potential, Doesn’t slow down from 1st quarter to 4th quarter, Can be a 30+ Carry Guy

    Neg: Torn ACL (will he recover and be the Back he once was?), Other UGA Backs did well in his absence

      I love evaluation, I was taking notes and was think the same exact thing actually compared him to AP

      Trent Richardson was a better prospect, so he is the best prospect since Richardson. At the time Trent came out, he was ranked higher compared to Gurley as an overall talent. Of course we know he busted, in part due to conditioning/drive. Gurley is good, but not on the level of AP IMO. I can add some negatives.

      Starting position much too high. Causes him to be too upright a lot behind the line of scrimmage. Doesn’t have much shake/wiggle to his game. Benefits from huge holes created by the OL, or huge cut-back lanes. Won’t have nearly as much room to operate at the next level. Durability issues. Only carried the ball over 170 times once in 3 seasons, so 30 plus carries/work horse type back at the next level seems far fetched. He NEVER carried the ball over 30 times in college, and has missed 13 games over the last 2 seasons from injury/suspension. Compares to: Steven Jackson

      I thought he did a great job of finding the crease and churning out positive yards. Shows good ability to squeeze through tiny holes and should be fine at the next level. Low mileage a GOOD thing going forward. Lots of tread still on the tires. Not at all worried about lack of 30 carry games. Has the stature and build to carry the load. Looks the part. Will need to work on pass protection but how many rookie backs don’t? Solid prospect.
