NFL Draft Odds: Who will be the second quarterback taken?
By Bob Garcia
Our series of NFL draft articles at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook continues in full force. Here’s the link to the first two in the series in case you missed them:
Now, we’re changing gears a bit in our latest article.
Who will be the second quarterback taken in the NFL Draft?
Zach Wilson, BYU (-305)
Justin Fields, Ohio State (+140)
Trey Lance, North Dakota State (+375)
Mac Jones, Alabama (+2581)
Trevor Lawrence, Clemson (+4532)
Kyle Trask, Florida (+5000)
As you can see from the odds above, BYU’s Zach Wilson is now the heavy favorite to be the second quarterback taken in the NFL Draft. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is actually a gigantic -4050 to be the top pick in another draft prop.
Now, this is the time of year where crazy draft rumors fly and agents and General Managers leak information, a lot of it fake. The latest rumor is that Wilson is ahead of Lawrence on some team’s draft boards, although I don’t believe it for a second.
Wilson has showed that he has a very good arm and can make all the NFL throws needed. He also has the necessary athleticism. I do believe that he’s likely to be the Jets’ pick at No. 2 overall, although I don’t think there’s a lot of value at these -305 odds.
The best odds value is actually Trey Lance from North Dakota State. He has the athletic profile to really wow scouts at this pro day on March 12th, giving him a chance to shake up the top of the draft.
Best Value Pick: Lance (+375)
Worst Value Pick: Wilson (-305)
