Caesars Sportsbook odds as of April 16


1. Who will be the overall first pick?

a. Aidan Hutchinson

b. Any Other Player

Did you all play? ESPN Streak? You must. This is similar to the ESPN Streak bonus, where you get a free win at the start of each month. Eight free agents were signed by the Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke as well as head coach Doug Pederson for $162.5million in guaranteed money. But they still have a need to improve their defensive side of the ball. The Jaguars must increase their pass-rush pressure, after last season's 32 sacks were tied for fifth most in the NFL. Hutchinson is the most highly regarded prospect in the 2022 draft class. Heisman runner up had a pass rush win rate 24.8%. This is what it takes. This is what you need to do if you want win the contest. Hutchinson was selected by McShay, Reid and Kiper in their respective mock drafts.

2. Who will be chosen first?

a. Kenny Pickett

b. Malik Willis

The Panthers are likely to select a No. 1 quarterback. 6th overall pick, after not acquiring any high-end options through tradings. The only question is whether Pickett or Willis will be taken. Pickett is the most professional-ready prospect in this class of quarterbacks, and it is also the safest pick considering that Matt Rhule has the hot seat. The Pitt quarterback ended his career as the school’s all-time leader for passing yards (12.303), completions (1.045), total offense (11.3112) and passing touchdowns (81). Pickett is 6-foot-3 and has great mobility. Rhule has worked with Pickett and this makes it a natural choice.

3. Who will be chosen first?

a. Travon Walker

b. Kayvon Thibodeaux

It is hard to choose. Walker, a rugged, run-stopper, has the body type and playing style for the NFL's 3-4 end position. He had 37 stops and 7.5 yards for losses. Walker also broke up two passes in six Georgia games in 2021. Thibodeaux is an interesting edge defender. His physicality and instincts are more important than his skills. Thibodeaux is a versatile player who can adapt to any situation, but he's still not an expert. Thibodeaux, who opted not to play in the team's bowl match in preparation for the draft last year, led Oregon in tackles and sacks with 12, and 7.0 respectively in 11 games. According to Kiper there is much buzz about Walker being drafted in the early rounds.

4. Who will be the first to be selected?

a. Ikem Ekwonu

b. Evan Neal

Ekwonu, Neal, and Reid are the two top offensive line prospects this year. Reid, McShay, and Kiper all believe that the Giants, Texans, and Reid are the two most likely teams to target offensive-linemen early in draft. Both teams were near the bottom in league pass block win rates. Neal, who has an unusual combination of talent, measurables, and pedigree is likely to be selected ahead Ekwonu, is most likely to be selected. As a three year starter at Alabama, Neal was able to play against the best college players. His versatility means that he could likely play left or right tackle at the NFL.

5. Who will be chosen first?

a. Ahmad Gardner

b. Kyle Hamilton

Gardner is the consensus top cornerback this year's NFL draft. He has a great combination of speed, size and length. He was a cornerback in college who did more than 1,000 snaps. He didn't allow a touchdown. Kiper believes he will be drafted No. The Lions drafted him No. 2. Although the Lions have a lot of cornerback depth, there are still questions about whether Jeff Okudah (Achilles injury), and Jerry Jacobs(ACL) will be back. One team cannot have too many great cornerbacks.

6. Who will become the first wide receiver to be selected?

a. Drake London

b. Jameson Williams

c. Garrett Wilson

d. Any Other Player

Let's take a look at Caesars to get an answer to this question. Wilson (+35), London (+140), and Williams (+300), are the favourites. According to Kiper's most recent mock draft Wilson is ranked No. 8 overall to the Atlanta FalconsI agree with his assessment. Wilson is often compared to Odell Beckham Jr. or Stefon Diggs because of his speed and big-play abilities. Wide receivers will be a key question this offseason. Frank Darby, who catches one pass in 2021, is the only returning receiver to the team in 2022. In the offseason, the Falcons signed Auden Take and Damiere Bute to short-term deals. However, their roles in the offense remain to be seen. Wilson could make a significant impact in Atlanta, which has the chance to do so.

7. Which of these players will you pick first?

a. Jordan Davis

b. Jermaine Johnson II

c. Trent McDuffie

d. Derek Stingley Jr.

McShay & Reid, in their latest mock draft, found that the Minnesota VikingsStingley will be selected at 12th overall. They are right. Minnesota has a lot of LSU connections and Minnesota needs a corner. Patrick Peterson would offer Stingley the chance to learn from him. Stingley's size, speed, and physical abilities make him a great player for man coverage. If Stingley is healthy, the Vikings may be able to land one of this year's best value draft picks.

8. Which of these players will you pick first?

a. Nakobe Dean

b. Jahan Dotson

c. Devin Lloyd

d. Chris Olave

Kiper projects Olave as the 15th overall to be in the Philadelphia Eagles. Olave is versatile and can play either inside or outside. This makes him attractive to teams looking for a vertical threat who can catch a lot of passes. Olave was a great receiver at Ohio State. He finished third in school history for receptions with 176, and fifth in receiving yardage with 2,711. He also set the school record for touchdown receptions with 35, which is fourth in Big Ten history. According to many, Jalenhurts, Eagles QB, will be evaluated during 2022 season. Hurts must succeed with Olave as a playmaker.

9. Which of these players will you pick first?

a. Matt Corral

b. Sam Howell

c. Desmond Ridder

d. Carson Strong

This is a hard question. Kiper places Corral (third), Ridder (4th), Strong (5th), and Howell (6th) close together at the quarterback position. Corral is my preference. Corral is the only quarterback who will be attending the draft in Las Vegas this month. Corral threw more than 8,000 yard with 57 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and more during his college career at Mississippi. Kiper's latest mock has Corral flying to New Orleans with Saints. This would be a smart move, if it comes to fruition.

10. What is the number of trades that will be made during Round 1

a. 0-3

b. 4

c. 5

d. 6 or more

Few people in the media scouting world are better at understanding what teams are looking to find than ESPN's Kiper. In his latest mock draft, the Cincinnati BengalsTraded out of the first round New York Jets. McShay, in contrast, had the Los Angeles ChargersTrade with the Kansas City ChiefsTo move up and select a wide receiver for his latest mock. What are the historical trades that took place in Round 1? In Round 1, there were an average of 5.6 draft-day trades from 2010 to 2018. In Round 1, however, there were on average 5.6 draft-day transactions from 2010 to 2018. However, between 2018 and 2021, there was an average of 4.3 trades per day.

11. What number of Georgia players will be selected in Round 1?

a. 0-3

b. 4

c. 5

d. 6 or more

We already have three first-round picks in Travon Walker, Jordan Davis, and Nakobe, Dean However, Devonte Wyatt Lewis CineThey are expected to be late Round 1 picks. McShay has four Georgian players picked in the first round, while Reid has four. Kiper, on the other side, has five. In Round 1, 33 Georgian players have been chosen since 1967.

12. In Round 1, will a runningback be selected?

a. Yes

b. No

It's hard to see a runningback being selected in Round 1. There are two reasons for this: First, McShay (Kiper) doesn't have any runningbacks being selected in their mock drafts. Second, in the 20th year an average number of 2.1 runningbacks were selected in Round 1. Although the 2022 class doesn't have the best chance of finding an all-down back like Najee Harris, the 2021 class has a lot to offer NFL teams.

13. Who will be the 1st to pick up the running back?

a. Breece Hall

b. Isaiah Spiller

c. Kenneth Walker

d. Any Other Player

This one is easy: we can return to Caesars. Hall (-225) is the favourite and well-deserved. His unique combination of creativity, power, and size will make him a starting quarterback in the league. Hall was the fifth-best Iowa State player to rush for over 1,000 yards more than once in 2021. Walker (+150) is next, followed by Isaiah Spiller (+1900). Hall was the first running back to be selected by McShay and Reid in their most recent mock drafts. Miller, Reid, Reid, and Kiper all have Hall.

14. Which quarterbacks will you pick in Round 2 of the draft?

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. 3 or more

Round 2: Since 2009, quarterbacks have been selected on average 1.2x per draft. In Round 2, quarterbacks are selected on average 1.2 times per draft since 2009. Corral and Ridder were chosen in Round 2 of the Kiper's McShay’s, Reid's, Reid’s and Matt Miller's latest mock drafts. Their analysis is sound. Pickett and Willis will be the only quarterbacks to be selected in this round. Teams will accept their chances in what is considered a weaker class. But it wouldn't surprise to see Ridder and Corral chosen in Round 1.

15. What number of Alabama players will be selected in Round 3?

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. 3 or more

The third round contains picks 65 to 105. Reid's mock draft of seven rounds includes one Crimson Tide prospect.Jalyn Armour-Davis). The third round has seen 14 Alabama players be selected over the last decade. This average is 1.4 per season. However, we have reached two times in the last four drafts.

16. Which of these players will you pick first?

a. David Bell

b. James Cook

c. Greg Dulcich

d. Justyn Ross

Reid's latest mock draft sees Dulcich heading to the New York Giantsat No. 67 overall. He could be a key player on a team that doesn't have tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Evan Engram. Dulich will likely be selected in the third or forth round of the next draft. The Tampa Bay BuccaneersHe might be a good choice for him because he can grow at the tight end position, if Rob Gronkowski plays with Tom Brady next year. Bell, Cook and Ross are unlikely to be drafted prior to him.

17. Which one of these schools will have a first-round pick on Day 3 (Rounds 4-7)?

Clemson

b. LSU

c. Oklahoma

d. Penn State

It's time to play the final rounds. Get your dart board ready. It makes sense to chase volume, considering the past history. LSU (59 picks on Day 3) has the highest number of picks in the last 20 years. Oklahoma (52), Clemson (45) and Penn State (43) are close behind. In Reid's latest mock draft, Oklahoma and Penn State both had five players selected in rounds 4-7. It is difficult not to choose either one of these schools.

18. Which punters and kickers will you pick in Round 6 of the Draft?

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. 3 or more

In the six-round selection of punters and kickers, 21 have been chosen over the last 20 years. However, only two have been picked since 2016. Reid's mock has been both Cameron Dicker Cade YorkGoing off the board in round 6.

19. What conference will Mr. Which conference will “Mr.

ACC

b. Big Ten

c. SEC

d. Any Other Conference/No Conference

Answering a question like this can be complicated because there are many variables. The best way to answer a question like this is to keep it simple, and stick with the volume. The SEC has been the leader in player selections in the draft for the last 20 years.

20. Which one of these schools will have more players?

a. Cincinnati

b. Michigan

c. Notre Dame

d. Ohio State

Reid's mock draft has seven Buckeyes selected. In the last 20 seasons, Ohio State has had 139 players selected. Next came Notre Dame (93), Michigan (990), and Cincinnati (36) It is a good idea not to focus on volume.

Tiebreaker: Which number will you choose? David Ojabo(MICH) be chosen?

Ojabo was ranked as one of their top three outside linebackers by Kiper, McShay, Reid and Matt Miller. The tiebreaker question is the most difficult in the contest, and for good reasons. Ojabo might slip due to a torn Achilles. Reid has him at No. 50 overall. Six picks are available to the Chiefs in the initial three rounds. Ojabo could be selected by them.
