    Dane Brugler: 24 overall – Arizona Cardinals

    Pete Prisco: 24 overall – Arizona Cardinals

    Will Brinson: 27 overall – Dallas Cowboys

    All four analysts have the Arizona Cardinals selecting a running back, with Brugler and Prisco sending Gordon to Arizona while Rang and Brinson like Gurley headed to the Cardinals.

    All four situations would be good for Gordon, and as much as I like him heading to San Diego (we’ll get into that in the next slide), Dallas remains my favorite landing spot for the Badgers.

    Dallas has arguably the best offensive line in the game, and just had the NFL’s leading rusher in DeMarco Murray. Well, Murray is now a Philadelphia Eagle, and the Cowboys are left with a crew of guys in Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and (no it’s not a placeholder name) John Smith.

    Clearly they’re in need of a solid running back to let loose behind that strong offensive line, and Gordon would be an ideal fit.
