Everyone Keeps Saying Trade Up For Gurley. Why Do I Never See Mg3?

I'm not big on following draft stuff this year, so forgive me for not knowing..

Other than UGA homerism, why does it seem that everyone screams for a Gurley trade up instead of a Gordon trade up/down? Isn't he a safer choice? Less injury concerns, powerful..

I know this isn't convenient for some of you, but here's an example of why Gurley is a better prospect:

Gurley receptions as a true sophomore: 37

MG3's total receptions in 4 years of college: 22

Oops, looks like UGA homers somehow made Todd Gurley a much more proven pass catcher.

Dude that's the only way Gordon is considered over Todd. When both healthy I don't see how it's even close, I honestly expect Gordon to struggle one he realizes he isn't getting huge running holes like he did in college ala mark Ingram

You actually know how football works....

first of all, every time someone says something good about a Georgia Player, it's not homerism. Gurley is hands down the best back in the draft, the nation, in college football period. That's all Gordon is. A safe pick.

Dude, read around on here. There is a ton of people yelling for a player just because he's on their favorite team. No need to get all defensive, guys.

Mevlin Gordon had 32 TDs in one year. Toddy Gurley had 42 in his entire college career.

Gordon averaged 7.8 ypc for his college career. gurley 6.4

Funny what stats can show.

Gurley only played 3 years of college. MG3 scored 17 TDs his first 3 years of college.

Probably just has to do with the Wisconsin running back curse. They just never seem to be worth a dam

Gordon had 78% of Gurleys yardage and 76% of Gurleys TDs in a single year.

Please stop trying to compare their statistics.

Gordon got stuffed for no gain on 20% of his carries, is not the pass catching threat nor the blocker Gurley is ....also Gurley has much better top end speed despite being a much more physical RB that runs over thru and bye defenders while wearing defenses the fk out....keep trying bro, roll the tape, and one day you will be fit to shine Gurleys shoes.....

Want to tell me how Gordon averaged 1.4 yards more per carry for his college career getting stuffed on 20% of his plays?

I'd love to hear a logical explanation on that.
