2015 Mock Draft Roundup: Where do the mockers say Melvin Gordon is heading in the NFL?
We’re now less than one month away from the 2015 NFL Draft, when Melvin Gordon and other Wisconsin Badgers hopefuls will find out their NFL destinations. The draft will be held in Chicago this year from April 30-May 2 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, a change from the New York City venue of Radio City Music Hall, where the draft had been held since 2006.
In Chicago, several Wisconsin players are hoping to hear their names called.
Havenstein is projected to be a mid- to late-round pick, and has gone as high as the sixth pick in the third round of Matt Miller’s latest mock draft.
But, we’re focusing on Melvin Gordon in this piece, as the running back will likely be taken in the top two rounds come the end of April.
In fact, Melvin Gordon has a good very chance to be taken in the first round, and is seen as one of the two best running backs in this draft, depending on who you ask. He and Georgia’s Todd Gurley are both looking to become the first running back selected in the first round of the draft in several years, and odds say at least one should go in the first round this year.
Gordon, who ran for 2,587 yards and 29 touchdowns last season, is putting in work ahead of the draft to round out his game, ensuring he has the pass-catching abilities needed of an NFL running back.
Let’s dive into the most recent mock drafts and get a sense of where the experts are projecting the talented Wisconsin running back to begin his career.
