Vegas oddsmakers: Gamecocks’ Marcus Lattimore will go in third round of NFL Draft
You can bet on almost anything in Las Vegas, including where specific college football players might go in this week’s NFL Draft.
The popular wagering web site Bovada says the over-under draft slot for former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore is 84.5, which puts the Gamecock fan favorite in the third round. Lattimore is recovering from major knee surgery following a gruesome injury against Tennessee last fall, his junior season.
NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock also predicts Lattimore will be selected in the third round.
The NFL Draft starts Thursday night with the first round. The second and third rounds are Friday night with the fourth-seventh rounds Saturday.
