Could intriguing Utah State quarterback prospect Jordan Love move up the board to exceed his NFL draft Odds expectations? Will former Ohio State cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, widely regarded as the top player at his position, be drafted inside the top five or could a run on quarterbacks push him out of the coveted group? Last, but not least, will former Alabama star Jerry Jeudy be the first wide receiver selected and will he go inside the top 12 picks?
Jordan Love, Jeffrey Okudah and Jerry Jeudy 2020 NFL Draft Odds Predictions
If you’re fired up about the quickly approaching 2020 NFL draft Odds and you’re looking to maximize your chances of cashing in early and often, then let’s get to my trio of expert predictions on Love, Okudah and Jeudy right now for this 2020 NFL Draft this upcoming April 23 – 25..
When Will Jordan Love Be Drafted?
- Second Quarterback Drafted +1000
- Third Quarterback Drafted +225
There’s no doubt that the 6-4, 225-pound Love is an intriguing NFL prospect. While he didn’t exactly face elite competition playing for Utah State in the Mountain West and threw 17 interceptions this past season against just 20 TD tosses, he still has all the qualities that NFL executives are looking for these days, Love is athletic and mobile and he possesses enough power to make all of the throws he’ll need to at the NFL level. Still, he hasn’t exactly been the best of leaders on the field and those 17 picks suggests he needs some improvement with his decision making. Some mock drafts have Love potentially going to Tampa Bay with the 14th overall pick and I could see Bruce Arians setting up his post Tom Brady future by doing so. Others suddenly have him possibly going to New England at No. 23 while others still, have Love falling out of the first round altogether. The fact of the matter is that, for this wager, it really doesn’t matter which round Love goes in. All we need to know is whether Love will be the second or third quarterback drafted and it’s a virtual lock that he’ll be neither. Joe Burrow goes off the board, followed by Tua Tagovailoa and then, Justin Herbert. Love will likely be the fourth quarterback taken, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some team take a flier on Jacob Eason. My best prediction is that Love definitely goes fourth overall.
2020 NFL Draft Odds: Fourth Overall
When Will Jeff Okudah Be Drafted?
- Over 4.5 Pick -110
- Under 4.5 Pick -130
While there have been some rumors that Detroit could potentially go after Tua Tagovailoa with the third overall pick to become the heir apparent to an aging Matthew Stafford, most NFL draft analysts and expecting the Lions to take gifted former Ohio State cornerback Jeffrey Okudah with the third overall pick. The Lions need a play-maker at the position after parting ways with veteran Darius Slay and Okudah has the look of a perennial All-Pro talent at the very least. I;m going with the Lions to grab Okudah at No. 3. Take the Under 4.5 here NFL betting buffs!
2020 NFL Draft Odds: Under 4.5
When Will Jerry Jeudy Be Drafted?
- Over 11.5 Pick -160
- Under 11.5 Pick +120
While virtually every mock draft had former Alabama wideout Jerry Jeudy going off the board as the first wide receiver taken in this year’s draft, that’s no longer the case as many draft analysts are now predicting that Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb will be their first wide receiver taken. While I personally like Lamb better than any other receiver in third draft class, I’m also thinking that whoever picks a receiver first, (Las Vegas, at No. 12) is going to take the ‘safer’ Jeudy before anyone else. Play the Over here, but just barely.
2020 NFL Draft Odds: Over 11.5
