Talk about killing one's own draft potential...

According to the associated text in your link its no big deal for NFL scouts. And it isn't an uncommon thing. I don't follow this stuff that much so I'm only going on their word, I have no idea if they're really "experts".

"Gurley tore his ACL last November, the lone red flag on his otherwise spotless resume. Per NFL Network's Mike Silver, it is considered "highly unusual, if not unprecedented" for a player to refuse his physical at the Combine. The NFL may not have full medical information on Gurley until the Combine re-check close to the draft. We can't speculate on why Gurley declined the exam, but it's definitely an eyebrow-raising decision." ~ Rotoworld

 

That doesn't sound like no big deal to me...and the fact that he's played in less than 40% of his team's games in the last 3 years. Not sure how anyone could take this guy with a 1st round pick.

depends if you trust Silver or Broaddus' opinion more......

 

 

Per DallasCowboys.com's Bryan Broaddus, NFL teams are not concerned with Todd Gurley's refusal to let Combine doctors check his surgically repaired knee.

Per Broaddus -- a former longtime pro personnel man -- NFL teams "are good" with Gurley, and there are "no issues." Broaddus says it's common for players to twist or pull a knee that was recently repaired surgically during a Combine checkup, and thus understandable Gurley balked with so much money on the line. "Teams understand this and are okay," Broaddus tweeted. Gurley will be brought back to Indianapolis in April and re-checked then.

Have a 14 team dynasty draft coming up right after the NFL rookie draft, and I traded away RGIII last pre-season for a 1st rounder this season...which due to his team coming in dead last gives me the 1st over-all pick. Watching Gurley, Gordon, Cooper, etc...especially to see where they fall. Gurley just scares me though with crap like this, but does give me something to do during the off-season. :)
