Melvin Gordon to declare for NFL Draft


In a shock to, well, probably no one, Heisman Trophy finalist and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Melvin Gordon will enter the 2015 NFL Draft. Gordon discussed his intentions on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday morning, and as the leading rusher in the country (2,336 and 26 touchdowns), he's expected to be the first tailback selected in the upcoming NFL draft.

His last game wearing the cardinal and white will be New Year's Day at 11 a.m. CT on ESPN2 against Auburn in the Outback Bowl. Please set your DVRs accordingly. We will have more on this as we finish up cursing the football gods for this last week.
