Preview: Packers Host Rams Looking to Move to 5-0
Over the past several years, drafting a running back at the top of the first round became unthinkable. Most people came to realize that the position is quite replaceable and even the best battle injury issues for the majority of their careers.
But the St. Louis Rams took a shot with their first round draft pick, selecting Todd Gurley out of Georgia. Though he was recovering from an ACL injury at the time, Gurley was viewed as possibly a generational talent worth of such a draft choice.
Gurley is slowly getting back to 100 percent health, and might be the most crucial part of the 2-2 Rams offense the rest of the season. He rushed for more than 100 yards in the second half of the win over the Cardinals, and with the team devoid of wide receivers he might just be the best offensive player the team has already.
