2015 NFL Draft: Most Likely First Round Landing Spots for Melvin Gordon

5 of 9

Baltimore Ravens: Round 1, pick 26

The Ravens were desperate for help at running back in 2014 following the Ray Rice incident, but found a surprise in Justin Forsett, a former seventh round draft pick who they had signed to a one-year deal as the likely third stringer, behind Rice and Bernard Pierce.

Well, Rice was suspended, Pierce was a disappointment, and Forsett took center stage and had a stellar season, picking up 1,266 yards on the ground and scoring eight touchdowns.

Forsett is a free agent, and even if the Ravens resign him, they’ll be looking for help at running back either through the draft or free agency.

Gordon would be a solid fit in Baltimore, a traditionally run-first offense. The Ravens  would give Gordon a chance to shine immediately, especially if the 2015 roster doesn’t include Forsett.
