Although Todd Gurley has one more season of eligibility left and a torn ACL, head coach Mark Richt expects him to declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.
Last night on his weekly radio call-in show, Richt indicated Gurley would be a top pick in “this” draft despite his injury.
“I believe he’ll still be a very high draft pick in this draft” Richt said.
Coach Richt said on his radio show that Todd Gurley will enter the NFL draft…No shocker…

Todd Gurley finishes his career at UGA with 510 carries for 3,285 yards (6.4 avg.) and 36 touchdowns. He also caught 65 passes for 615 yards and six touchdowns.
Gurley was suspended by UGA on Oct. 9 after they became aware that he may have accepted money in exchange for signing autographs. The NCAA later announced he was suspended for four games for receiving over $3,000.
In his first game back after the suspension, Gurley rushed 29 times for 138 yards and a touchdown before tearing his ACL in the fourth quarter.
