Former UGA RB Todd Gurley hurdles defender, scores first NFL touchdown
Since returning from an ACL injury he sustained late in his final season at UGA, running back Todd Gurley has emerged as one of the top rookies in the NFL.
He has already made a number of highlight-reel plays, but his latest may be the best:

Gurley hurdled a Cleveland Browns defender en-route to a 14-yard gain, but he was not done yet.

The former UGA back then picked up his first career NFL touchdown on a 1-yard carry late in the third quarter to give the St. Louis Rams a 17-6 lead. There were some who questioned whether Gurley would be the same player after the ACL injury, but it appears that he has answered those questions with a resounding yes.
