Current Favorites

Caleb Williams (Chicago Bears)(+175): After spending all last season as the favorite to be selected first overall, the Chicago Bears selected Caleb Williams in that spot. Chicago has been on the hunt for a franchise quarterback longer than Caleb Williams has been playing football. Still, itโ€™s hard not to be optimistic that the former Heisman Trophy winner can finally give the Bears stability under center.

In just two seasons at USC, the gunslinger managed a 72:10 touchdown-to-interception ratio, 8,170 passing yards, and 21 rushing touchdowns. With exciting weapons around him like Rome Odunze and Keenan Allen, the new face of the Bears will be hard to beat in this race.

Jayden Daniels (Washington Commanders)(+650): Prior to the most recent college football season, Drake Maye was the heavy-betting favorite to be selected second overall in the draft. The LSU standout had different plans, though, as he posted a 40:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio, along with ten rushing touchdowns on his way to the Heisman.

The Commanders have no shortage of receivers and tight ends that could make Danielsโ€™ job easier, but the key will be protecting him. Daniels showed an innate ability to escape the pocket last season, and thatโ€™s essential since Washington was second in sacks allowed last season with 65.

Marvin Harrison Jr. (Arizona Cardinals)(+650): Unlike the MVP, the Rookie of the Year Award doesnโ€™t necessarily go to the best quarterback. Before CJ Stroud won the award last year, wide receivers had won in two straight seasons, and Harrison Jr. does have a good chance at making noise this year since he is stepping into a #1 receiver role for Kyler Murray.

Current Favorites

Dallas Turner (Minnesota Vikings)(+400): Plenty of experts thought Turner would be the first defensive player off the board and taken inside the top ten. Instead, the former Alabama edge rusher needed to wait until the 17th pick to hear his name called.

Regardless of where he was selected, Turner has the potential to make an immediate impact on a Vikings defense that just lost Danielle Hunter in free agency and led the league in blitz percentage in 2023-24 at 51.5%.

Laiatu Latu (Indianapolis Colts)(+550): The Colts took Latu ahead of Turner in the first round, making this versatile edge rusher the first defensive player off the board. Latu dominated at UCLA this past season, and while the talent has always been there, the question was which team would look past his injury history.

The Colts finished with the fifth-most sacks in the league last season (51). However, they still allowed far too many points every week, so defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will rely heavily on Latu to be a difference-maker.

Quinyon Mitchell (Philadelphia Eagles)(+1100): Only three defensive backs have won the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award since 2000, yet oddsmakers clearly think highly of Mitchell, who should be stepping into an immediate starting role in the Eagles secondary. Philadelphia allowed the second-most passing yards last season (4,296), so they need all the help they can get.
