The expected top running back in the 2015 NFL Draft, Todd Gurley from Georgia took the time earlier today to do a Reddit AMA live from Chicago. For those of you that don't understand the term, AMA stands for 'Ask Me Anything' and Reddit users hold that very sacred. You'll see odd questions that don't relate at all to football and you'll see questions that are the exact ones that football fans would expect to see.
Some of the highlights below:

AP, Beast Mode, Leveon Bell, Shady McCoy, Forte (since we're here in Chicago). no order.
Todd, what are you eating before the draft today?
nothing yet ... i'm starved. someone send me a pizza.
Todd, what were your thoughts on the Tud Girly Twitter parody during your suspension?
