3. Melvin Gordon, RB, (Underrated)
Despite winning the Doak Walker award in college (given to the best running back in the nation), being selected with a first round pick in 2016, and finishing with just under 1,500 combined yards from scrimmage in 2018, we still don’t fully accept Melvin Gordon as one of the best running backs in the NFL.
Yet Gordon has had 12 combined touchdowns in each of the past two years, and has been a true dual-threat running back, catching 41 passes for 419 yards in 2016 and 58 catches for 476 yards in 2017. He was much more deserving of a Pro Bowl selection in 2017 over LeSean McCoy, who was selected in place of him.
