Plant a Flag: RB

Footballguys staff members make a stand on a running back

Make a call on a running back. Who will surprise - either good or bad? Why?

Andy Hicks: I'll go with Melvin Gordon. There are too many people who write off a first round talent after they struggle in their rookie season. Some of the greatest backs such as in the history of the league struggled early eg Walter Payton. It also cannot be understated what affect the offensive line play in 2015 contributed to the issues in the Chargers offense as a whole. The addition of Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator should be seen as a bonus and Gordon himself should be better with a much improved run blocking unit in front of him this year. Of course there are no guarantees, but at his current draft price he offers solid RB2 production with even a hint of improvement.
