Higgins, Delpit Favored To Be Drafted In First Round

  • Tee Higgins and Grant Delpit are both favorited by oddsmakers to not be drafted in the first round, showing -300 and and -220 odds, respectfully.
  • D’Andre Swift showing equal odds at -120 on if he gets selected in the first round.

LAS VEGAS – As the NFL Draft rolls closer and closer, bets are pouring in across sportsbooks on which players will get taken in the first round. There is money to be made on bettors who take the time to learn about players' draft stock, but certain players' positions have become very volatile in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

One of those players is Clemson Tiger standout and 2018 national champion Tee Higgins. The 6’4, 216 lb. former basketball player is ranked as a consensus top 10 receiver in the upcoming draft. Higgins is getting his name called regardless, but oddsmakers are now heavily leaning towards him falling out of the first round.

Will Tee Higgins be a 1st Round Pick?

No -300
Yes +200

Early reports had Higgins as high as fourth on their receiving board, but those have flipped in recent weeks having the bulky pass catcher more near sixth.

This would place him just outside the first round around pick number 34. Expect these odds to change again before next week, as there is potential for teams go offense heavy in the first round.

One of the strongest forces and most diligent ball hawks in all of college football last year was LSU’s Grant Delpit. The 6’1, 202 lb. Junior was the anchor of an LSU Tiger secondary that hit their stride in the second half of last season on their way to a national championship.

Now, Delpit finds himself as one of the most debated players coming into the draft, with recent mocks placing him as high as 20th overall. However, oddsmakers are not convinced.

Will Grant Delpit be a 1st Round Pick?

No -220
Yes +155

While Delpit is ranked high, there are just too many teams with needs other than safety that lie at the end of the first round. Delpit would have to go early around number 20, or fear falling to round two, which online betting sites favor.

Last, and maybe highest on our list when it comes to unpredictability, is Georgia Bulldog’s running back D’Andre Swift. Swift started the draft process as high as 14th overall on certain big boards, but now finds himself on the first-round bubble according to oddsmakers.

Will D’Andre Swift be a 1st Round Pick?

No -120
Yes -120

While he is still rated as the number one running back in the draft, that has not convinced the oddsmakers. There are too many moving pieces and team decisions to be made before anyone can solidify a draft position, but nailing a Swift bet on the NFL Draft would be impressive for anyone at this stage.
