NFL Draft Odds:

The first pick of the NFL draft belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who finished the season with a 1-15 record.

With new head coach Urban Meyer at the Jags, it is no secret that generational quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be the first pick of the board, who currently sited at 1/100.

The second pick belongs to the New York Jets who are far to accustomed of having a top 10 pick in recent years.

With the move of their old quarterback Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers, they look set to take a quarterback. Zach Wilson seems to be the best of the rest in the Jets’ eyes and is the bookies’ favourite with best odds of 1/20.

The third pick of the draft is where it gets interesting; San Francisco traded their 12th round first pick for Miami’s third pick and gave away some second-round picks and third round picks. This can mean only one thing: that they are after a quarterback.

Recent talk has put either Alabama quarterback Mac Jones or North Dakota quarterback Trey Lance as the San Francisco quarterback of the future. Jones is currently marketed at 1/2, with Lance 3/1.
