The NFL draft is a yearly spectacle to behold. It can elicit hope, excitement or dismay for any NFL fanbase. These three days stand as both the culmination and precipice of hard work for 257 collegiate athletes. Rumors of each player's landing spot or draft slot begin circling early. With each headline, their betting or prop odds can shift.
Head to our Prop Shop Tool and search any player by name to find their latest betting odds across numerous legal sportsbooks. Let's discuss early NFL Draft props and odds for each player for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Lawrence (-5000) is the obvious pick, and the odds reflect it. As crazy as it sounds for the Jaguars to bypass Lawrence in this spot, it’s not like we haven’t seen NFL teams surprise us year after year with trades or changes of heart.
Zach Wilson Odds
Wilson (+600) has been rumored inside the top three picks and the buzz is growing. A team moving up to snag him might seem outlandish, but we’ve seen teams do crazier things before (cough cough *Bears*).
Justin Fields First QB Drafted Odds
Fields (+1600) has both the arm talent, mobility and high profile college pedigree to unseat Trevor Lawrence.
Mac Jones First QB Taken Odds
The Alabama pocket passer is the ultimate longshot bet here. Jones (+15000) has received some buzz climbing inside the top 8-10 selections.
First Offensive Lineman Drafted Odds
The hulking tackle from Oregon is the odds favorite (-715) for good reason. Sewell’s combination of agile feet and strong hands has the ability to be special.
Slater’s odds (+300) are mouth watering as some analysts in the draft community have him rated higher than Sewell. Seeing him hopping the heavily favored Sewell is not as outlandish as it sounds.
Vera-Tucker (+8000) is the underrated betting home run swing here. In another unprecedented offseason of scouting with COVID-19 alterations, a team looking for a safe ground rule double type prospect with a high and safe floor could surprise and grab him early.
First Wide Receiver Drafted Odds
Ja’Marr Chase NFL Draft Odds
Chase (-150) will likely hear his name spoken inside the top 10 picks in the NFL Draft.
DeVonta Smith First WR Odds
If there is a player who could jump Chase in the pecking order, it could be Alabama’s Heisman trophy hero DeVonta Smith (+125).
Jaylen Waddle Odds
NFL teams still covet the one thing that you can’t teach, and that’s otherworldly speed. Waddle (+700) has the Alabama pedigree and the jets to zoom past the competition.
Rashod Bateman First WR Taken Odds
Shooters gotta shoot, and Bateman (+2000) is a great longshot to take. Bateman’s overall game and 18.8 breakout age (95th percentile) give him the outside shot to be a late mega riser.
First Running Back Drafted Odds
Travis Etienne NFL Draft Odds
Etienne (-200) is the favorite here. His home run ability and passing game prowess make this a possibility.
Najee Harris Odds
Harris’ odds (+125) should be closer to Etienne’s. Harris has the skill set and workhorse history to find himself as the first selected from his positional group. Harris is my favorite bet here.
Javonte Williams Odds
Don’t let the rumors fool you: Javonte Williams (+700) has a three-down, bell cow ability at the next level. Williams’ pass protection and bruising running style could leave a team smitten with him.
Michael Carter Odds
If there’s a player who could push Javonte Williams out of the way, it could be his former North Carolina backfield mate. Carter (+3300) displayed a well rounded list of attributes in college. A smaller frame didn’t deter the Chiefs’ from selecting Clyde Edwards-Helaire as the first overall running back last year, so don’t count out Carter here.
First Overall Pick Odds in the NFL Draft
Trevor Lawrence First Overall Pick Odds
Did you expect someone outside of Lawrence (-2000) as the favorite here?
Zach Wilson First Overall Pick Odds
The Wilson (+800) hype train has left the station. Don’t be shocked if a team climbs aboard and rides it to the top spot.
Justin Fields First Overall Pick Odds
If not Wilson, Fields could be the upset selection here. The quarterback position is the lean here regardless of what name you pick. A quarterback has been the first overall pick in five of the last six NFL Drafts.
Penei Sewell First Overall Pick Odds
Let’s have some fun here and travel back in time. If a team believes Sewell (+3300) is a generational talent at the tackle position, we could see a team revisit the 2013 NFL Draft. That year, Eric Fisher was the top overall selection and tackles were three of the first four picks in the first round.
Micah Parsons First Overall Pick Odds
In the last seven years the only time teams have not selected a quarterback No. 1, they have gone for the top defensive player on the board. Parsons (+25000) is arguably that with his ability not only in pass coverage, but his skills to help out in the pass rush department as well.
