Here’s a little dose of irony for you: Todd Gurley’s suspension for violating NCAA amateurism rules may have the effect of increasing his professional value.
… One NFL scout told NFL.com Gurley is the best draft prospect at his position since Adrian Peterson.
The stats bear that out. Gurley averaged 6.4 yards per carry at Georgia over parts of three seasons. He also missed time because of a suspension for taking autograph money, but that means a lot of the usual wear on college rushers won’t affect him as much.
I bet that doesn’t feel right to some. Maybe the Georgia legislature ought to pass a law about that.
