The St. Louis Rams selected Todd Gurley with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. It was a pick that many were skeptical of because of the torn ACL that ended his college career. Looking back at the pick, it might very well have been the best pick of the draft.
Gurley burst onto the scene and was even being called the best running back in the NFL earlier this year.
Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett, however, doesn’t seem to be buying the hype just yet. He came out in an interview and put Gurley on blast.
“He’s average to me, personally,” Bennett told reporters. “I’ve seen better running backs. He’s no Marshawn Lynch.”
It is understandable that Bennett would want to put Gurley on blast, but doing so following a loss to the Rams wasn’t the right time. Lynch isn’t much of anything now anyway, as injuries have completely derailed his season.
Gurley is also much more than an average running back.
Throughout the 2015 season, Gurley has carried the ball 229 times for 1,108 yards and 10 touchdowns.
