2019 NFL Draft Odds: Murray Looks Like a Lock to Go at No. 1

Kyler Murray #1 of the Oklahoma Sooners looks on against the Alabama Crimson Tide during the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Miami, Florida.

With the NFL Scouting Combine in the books and free agency starting to simmer, the focus of the offseason now turns to the 2019 NFL Draft.

Kyler Murray is the -500 favorite to be taken at No. 1.

When it comes to odds on which standout college player will be selected with the first overall pick, Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray is the -500 favorite. Nick Bosa (+250), Quinnen Williams (+1800) and Josh Allen (+2000) are also available to bet on at the shop.

Murray skyrockets up the board

Only a few short weeks ago, Bosa was the -200 favorite with Murray coming back at +200. But since then, it’s become clear the Arizona Cardinals, who possess the top pick in the draft, have become enamored with Murray. New Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has stated his glowing opinion of the former Sooner in the past, and it looks like he’s found his quarterback of the future at No. 1.

That means last year’s 10th overall selection, Josh Rosen, could be looking for a new home in 2019. With Arizona reportedly fielding offers for Rosen, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the former USC signal-caller dealt before the draft on April 25. Since Murray’s unprecedented move up the oddsboard, Williams’ odds have fallen from +1000 to +1800, while Allen’s have dropped from +1400 to +2000.

Is Bosa’s injury history a concern?

Bosa, the younger brother of Los Angeles Chargers star defensive end Joey Bosa, withdrew early from Ohio State last year to rehabilitate from core muscle surgery.

A starter from his true freshman campaign of 2016 through his shortened junior season, Bosa had 17.5 sacks and 77 tackles (29 for a loss) in 29 games at OSU. The 21-year-old’s decision to enter the draft early and undergo rehab wasn’t a surprising one, but there is some concern from scouts surrounding his injury history.

Then again, the same thing was said about Adrian Peterson in 2007 and he turned out to be one of the most prolific running backs the league has ever seen.

Which player will be chosen with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft?
