#2. Melvin Gordon, Running Back
Size: 6-1, 207 lbs
2014 Stats: 2587 rushing yards, 7.5 per carry, 29 touchdowns
My Analysis: Gordon is just 6’1, but weighs 207 pounds, according to ESPN.
He is able to easily break tackles, and that’s why last season he had an average of 7.5 yards per run, accumulating over 2500 yards on the season.
Both he or Gurley would be a great addition with Arian Foster in the backfield, if they were to fall that far in the draft.
If either of these two players are available when the Texans are on the clock, they should jump on the opportunity.
