The NFL Draft is where dreams are made. The NFL prospects that will be entering the 2022 NFL Draft have been working at it their whole lives to make it up to this day. There are a lot of people that are going to be betting on the 2022 NFL Draft.
The first round of the 2022 NFL draft will be held on Thursday, April 28th. The second and third rounds run on Friday, April 29th, and rounds four through seven are scheduled for Saturday, April 30th. The NFL Draft will have a lot of fun in Las Vegas, Nevada. What are some of the potential things to bet on for the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft?
Total Offensive Lineman Taken In the First-Round
The offensive line in this NFL Draft in 2022 is one of the deepest it has been in a while. There are a lot of NFL teams that need help on the offensive line. The over 7.5 offensive lineman taken in the first round of the draft money line is +150 and the under 7.5 offensive lineman taken in the first round money line is -200.
Bet the under 7.5 total offensive linemen taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. There will be seven offensive linemen taken in the first round. Those offensive linemen that will be taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft are 6. Carolina Panthers- Evan Neal, 7. New York Giants- Ikem Ekwonu, North Carolina State, 9. Seattle Seahawks- Charles Cross, Mississippi State, 14. Baltimore Ravens- Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa, 16. New Orleans Saints- Zion Johnson, Boston College, 26. Tennessee Titans- Kenyon Green, Texas A & M, and 27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa.
The offensive line is one of the most important positions to have in the NFL. Without having it, the quarterbacks and other players will get hurt.
Total Quarterbacks Taken In the First-Round
Quarterbacks might be the most important position to have in the entire NFL. Without having a quality starting quarterback in the NFL, your team has no chance to win a Super Bowl title let alone win many games in the NFL.
A lot of NFL Draft experts are saying that this might be the weakest quarterback class ever in 2022. A lot of teams might save up draft picks for next year. The 2023 class is supposed to be much stronger, but let’s just focus on 2022 at the moment. The over 3.5 quarterbacks taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft money line is +180 and the under 3.5 quarterbacks taken in the first round money line is -270.
There will only be two quarterbacks taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. They are 20. Pittsburgh Steelers- Malik Willis, Liberty, and 32. Detroit Lions- Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati.
This will be one of the trickiest quarterback situations in the NFL Draft. Other quarterbacks that could possibly be taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft: are Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh, and Matt Corral, Ole Miss.
Total Running Backs Taken In the First Round
In the past, running backs have gone very high in the first round of the NFL Draft. For the first time in quite some time, there is a potential chance that no running backs will get drafted in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
The odds speak for themselves. The 0.5 running backs being selected in the first round is +175 and the under is -260. There is a slim chance that one running back can go in the first round. The most likely player that would be taken is Breece Hall out of Iowa State, but he is more projected to land in the second round.
There is a chance that he lands with the Buffalo Bills with the 25th overall pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. However, it is a massive risk to even think about taking the over money line in this situation. The NFL Draft is always unpredictable.
