It is draft week in the NFL and with the deepest draft in years, keep reading for the Over-Under betting odds on how many first round draft picks each conference will deliver.
Over-Under Odds On Most NFL Draft Picks By Conference
O 2½ -300
U 2½ +240
A couple of ACC players are almost assured to go in Round 1. The first is Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons. The Tigers’ 2019 defensive anchor, Simmons had 107 tackles, 8 sacks, and 3 picks. He’s a beast of a player.
The other player is Louisville offensive lineman Mekhi Becton. The Cardinal is 6’ 7” and 324 lbs. He’s got long arms, which NFL offensive line coaches love. Clemson corner A.J. Terrell is a possibility.
O 5½ -170
U 5½ +140
A couple of Ohio State players, Chase Young and Jeff Okudah, should get drafted in the Top 4. Young is the highest-rated player in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Buckeye defensive-end produced 16 ½ sacks in his final season. He’s 6’ 5” and weighs 264 lbs.
Okudah is a lockdown corner. Those are hard to find. After Young and Okudah, Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs is a lock. So is Hawkeye edge rusher A.J. Epenesa. Michigan inside offensive line player Cesar Ruiz and Penn State edge rusher Yetur Gross-Matos both have first round talent.
O 3½ +110
U 3½ -140
Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb is lock. The big wide receiver runs excellent routes and can beat NFL corners one-on-one. Few corners or safeties are strong enough to out battle CeeDee for jump balls. TCU corner Jeff Gladney, Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray, and Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims are the other 3 Big 12 players that cold go in the first round.
O 2½ +130
U 2½ -160
Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert should be no worse than the third quarterback taken. Whether that makes Herbert a Round 1 pick is a guess. After Herbert, USC OT Austin Jackson has a shot to get into the first round. Jackson is one of the more athletic offensive tackles in this draft.
O 15½ -110
U 15½ -120
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow will be the first player taken. After Burrow, potential SEC first round picks are: Bama QB Tua Tagovailoa, Auburn IDL Derrick Brown, Tide OT Jedrick Wills, South Carolina IDL Javon Kinlaw, Bama WR Jerry Jeudy, Georgia OT Andrew Thomas, Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III, LSU Edge K’Lavon Chaisson, Florida CB C.J. Henderson, LSU corner Kristian Fulton, Bama CB Trevon Diggs, LSU WR Justin Jefferson, LSU LB Patrick Queen, and Alabama safety Xavier McKinney.
That’s 15 players. Other SEC players who could go in Round 1 are Georgia players lineman Isaiah Wilson and running back D’Andre Swift. LSU safety Grant Delpit is another possible first round player.
