NFL NEWS AT YOUWAGER: COMBINE BLOWOUTS

One combo to go

The NFL’s scouting combine is not always a great combination. Putting the best players and the scouts together, at one time, doesn’t always work. Blowing the big test, when a lot of YouWager’s NFL football betting fans are watching, does not mean it’s over for the players that disappointed the scouts. But it’s not good, an NFL analyst at YouWager says. Just ask these guys.

Manti Te’o

Just 2 months ago, the star Notre Dame linebacker was considered by many sportsbook bettors to be one of the top 10 in the country. One of the most sought after players. Then he and Notre Dame got creamed in the Alabama BCS championship match. Then the story of the fake girlfriend came out. Then Te’o ran a 4.81 in the 40-yard dash, and seemed awkward in the drill exercises. Then a rumor that Te’o might be gay began to circulate. Te’o told a YouWager news source, “It is very exhausting. If you ask anyone out here, it is a very exhausting process. It is all about getting out there, being with the guys, showing that you can get out there and do things.”

Alec Ogletree

A linebacker from Georgia, Ogletree’s biggest problem was a string of suspicious incidents. He stole a motor scooter helmet. He didn’t follow the Georgia’s substance abuse policy. And a few days before the combine, Ogletree got a DUI. His 4.70 in the 40, and a general lack of speed, had some YouWager bettors scratching their heads.

Jarvis Jones

Jones, a former offensive linebacker for Georgia, found that his spinal stenosis was a big question for coaches, and he may no longer be in the top 10. Jones doesn’t want to appear like he’s hiding anything. He told a YouWager source, “Our main focus was the come here and visit with all the doctors so all the doctors can see me. Take all the tests I can that they needed me to take so that they can see that I’m healthy.”

Star Lotulelei

At the combine, Lotulelei, a defensive tackle for Utah, was discovered to have a heart abnormality. That’s a bad time to learn about such things. Many of YouWager’s serious NFL football wagering fans had thought Lotulelei would be one of the best players here. Some medical reports have now indicated that Lotulelei’s heart may have been affected by temporary dehydration. Coaches and Lotulelei, are still hoping for more encouraging information.

Marquise Goodwin

Cordarrelle Patterson

These 2 wide receivers have looked impressive in their college careers. Goodwin played for Texas and Patteron played for Tennessee. Both players ran fast in a straight line, but neither demonstrated any flair for routes, and they seemed inconsistent with their catches.

Johnthan Banks

After his season at Mississippi State, many of YouWager’s college football bettors thought Banks might be number 2 or 3 in this draft class. But after failing to impress in the combine’s drills for defensive backs, and running the 40 (twice) at more than 4.5 seconds, Banks may not be in the first round.

Sam Montgomery

This defensive end from LSU shocked the online betting community recently when he revealed to the press that he sat out some of the easier games. “You know, some weeks when we didn’t have to play the harder teams, there were some times when effort was not needed,” Montgomery told a YouWager source. “But when we had the big boys coming in, the Alabamas or the South Carolinas, I grabbed close to those guys and went all out.”

Damontre Moore

The defensive end/offensive linebacker from Texas A&M did not shine as bright as many of YouWager’s college football wagering fans might have expected. Moore only did 12 reps on the bench press and his 40 yard run came in at 4.95.

All the quarterbacks

Geno Smith of West Virginia fame, demonstrated some improvements in his passing, but he seemed off, some YouWager bettors felt. Overall, there was no outstanding show of quarterback talent, as obvious as anything sportsbook betting fans have seen in the recent past. This might have been a surprise, even to the scouts, now that the league has seen these new double-threat rookies jumping from college careers into professional ones. At this point, it may even be more difficult than usual for the scouts to know who to grab first in the NFL draft, YouWager’s NFL analyst admits. Some players simply play better when they are in a game, and in the end, that’s what really counts.
