Melvin Gordon sends heartfelt message to Wisconsin

New Chargers running back, Melvin Gordon was an absolute star at Wisconsin. He’s the owner of every major rushing record at Wisconsin and was a Heisman finalist last year after rushing for 2,587 yards and a stunning 29 touchdowns.

WATCH: Melvin Gordon Destroys Auburn with Epic TD Run

Some said Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was overrated. Some said he wouldn’t produce at a high level in the Big 10. Heck, some have even said he’s not going to be a good pro.
