Former Georgia RB Todd Gurley to Visit Panthers

2015 NFL Scouting Combine

Former Georgia tailback Todd Gurley will visit the Panthers on Thursday, Gurley told reporters Wednesday at the Bulldogs’ pro day in Athens, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Gurley, who is from Tarboro, was among the leading Heisman Trophy candidates last season before the NCAA suspended him four games for taking $3,000 in exchange for autographed memorabilia.

Gurley’s visit comes a week after the Panthers cut DeAngelo Williams in a move that saved them $2 million against the salary cap. Jonathan Stewart and Fozzy Whitaker are the Panthers’ top returning running backs.

Carolina has the 25th overall pick in the draft.

“The Panthers are a great organization,’’ Gurley told reporters in Athens. “I’m a North Carolina guy, so that’s a team that I’ve known about my whole life, really. They’ve had some great running backs. But I don’t favor any team right now. I don’t want to make any other teams mad.”

Gurley did not participate in Georgia’s pro day activities as he continues to recover from knee surgery. Gurley tore the ACL in his left knee against Auburn in November in his first game back from suspension.
