Chase Young is widely regarded as one of the best defensive prospects to come out of college in the past decade.

Young has it all. The size, strength, explosiveness and tenacity it takes to excel in the NFL and make himself a household name.

Ahead of his rookie campaign, both oddsmakers and bettors also agree that the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award is his to lose.

At +300, Young is the overwhelming favorite to take home the hardware this season. His odds imply a 25% chance of winning and the second-shortest option, Isaiah Simmons, currently sits at +700.

As far as the betting public is concerned, Young is even more of a sure thing. Since the end of April’s NFL Draft, 36.36% of all bets in the DROTY market have backed Young.

The second most popular pick has been Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen (+1200). Simmons is currently backed by only 4.55% of the betting public, which is somewhat surprising given the hype surrounding him following the NFL combine.
