Todd Gurley’s Insane College Career
Before he was a three-time Pro Bowl selection, Todd Gurley showed his dominance on the field while playing college football at Georgia. He’ll always be remembered as one of the best backs in program history.
During his three seasons with the Bulldogs, he piled up 3,285 yards and 36 touchdowns. He also caught 65 passes for 615 yards and six more scores.
Gurley earned All-SEC honors twice during his three seasons in Athens.
Gurley ended his career at Georgia by rushing for 100 yards in 18 career games, more than half his appearances (30 games). He averaged 6.4 yards per carry for his career, as well as 9.5 yards per reception.
Gurley did battle injuries during his time at the college level, keeping him out of 10 games in 2013 and 2014. Still, he was selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, going No. 10 overall to the Rams.
