Saints: 3 NFC South players to keep an eye on in 2020
Number Three: Todd Gurley
Todd Gurley was a former first-round pick by the Los Angeles Rams back in 2015 and was the first running back selected that year.
Gurley had a great tenure with the Rams before they released him in the 2020 offseason leading to him returning to the same state he played at during his collegiate days Georgia Bulldogs. Guley is now a part of the Atlanta Falcons.
The Falcons had already released Devonta Freeman and were looking for another running back to replace him and Gurley fell into their lap.
Gurley has had a great career thus far rushing for over 5,400 yards, receiving over 2,000 yards, and scoring a total of 70 touchdowns. Gurley also attended three Pro Bowls and was selected for the 2017 and 2018 First-Team All-Pro squads.
Gurley brings life to a rather weak Falcons offense that simply ran out of playmakers. With Matt Ryan and Julio Jones still at the helm in Atlanta, Gurley could have one of the best seasons he’s ever had.
The Saints need to know where Gurley is at all times, or he’ll make you pay for it.
