NFL Gambling – Combine disaster for several high profile players NFL Draft

Tony Pike. Jonathon Dwyer. Devin McCluster. These were players that, prior to the recent NFL draft combine seemed to be surefire 1st or 2nd round prospects. But not anymore. Not after the numbers they put at the NFL combine and unless they have a stellar Pro Day at their home campus they could continue to slide all the way up the NFL gambling draft day.

Pike has had injury questions over the past several years but with a big day at the combine could have secured a at least a second round slot for himself with a productive showing at the NFL draft combine. But instead he was erratic with his throws and with his slow 40 time and less than stellar body, many NFL gambling experts have him sliding to the late rounds and probably the sixth or seventh QB taken.

RB Jonathon Dwyer perhaps the most highly rated of the bunch heading into the NFL draft combine, perhaps slid the most. Dwyer was a likely first round pick but after running a 4.59, registering one of the worst broad jumps at the Combine and doing only 16 reps on the bench, he’s fallen way out of the first round and likely landed in the third round according to most NFL gambling observers.

McCluster another RB and intriguing NFL draft prospect did himself no favors at the Combine either. Usually you love to see a guy participate in drills at the combines when so many players choose not to perform. McCluster worked out RB and WR but hurt himself by posting a 4.6 40 time. At just 5-9 and 172lbs he’s a Darren Sproles type player without the speed, not that attractive for NFL scouts.
