Todd Gurley has been thought of as a surefire first round draft prospect for some time, but last November NFL experts began doubting the Georgia running back.
This was nothing to do with Gurley's ability, but was simply down to the fact that the promising tailback had suffered a terrible ACL tear that threatened his stock for the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.
We haven't seen a running back go in the first round of the draft since 2012, and when Gurley went down last November it was thought that trend may continue.
However, news coming out of the Gurley camp on Sunday has provided a huge boost for the running back and for the teams looking to originally take him the first round of the draft.
"Gurley, who looked like a sure-thing first-round pick before suffering a torn ACL in November, had his surgically reconstructed knee inspected by doctors as part of the NFL’s medical-recheck today in Indianapolis," ProFootballTalk reported.
"According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Gurley’s knee checked out fine and there’s optimism that he’ll be good to go in time for training camp."
