Gerald McCoy compares T.J. Yeldon to an elite NFL running back
When you receive praise from one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL, you’re obviously doing something right. While Jacksonville Jaguars’ rookie running back T.J. Yeldon has had an up-and-down start to his NFL career, he’s at least impressed Gerald McCoy.
As Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com reported, McCoy compared Yeldon to one of the top running backs in the NFL.

For a RB, the compliment doesn’t get much better than that one. Bell had 1,361 rushing yards, 854 receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns in 2014.
Through four games in his rookie season, Yeldon has rushed 70 times for 259 yards, but has yet to cross the goal line. He’s also caught 10 balls for 42 yards.
If Yeldon can put up numbers that even resemble those of Bell, at any point, the Jaguars will look brilliant for grabbing him in the second round.
