With the 2023 NFL Draft just around the corner, it is about time to see where the top young prospects are headed to play at the next level.
There seems to be no drama at No. 1 overall, as Bryce Young is a huge favorite to be selected No. 1 overall by the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers traded up to the top spot back in March for the opportunity to pick the Alabama quarterback to begin the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City, Missouri.
The real drama begins at No. 2, where the Houston Texas are currently slated to pick from. WynnBET no longer has odds for the No. 1 overall pick, but there are four different players with a price of +300 or shorter to be selected with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft.
In addition to the drama at the top, bettors have plenty of other markets available at WynnBET such as position-specific markets and over/under on draft slots.
Odds to Be the No. 2 Overall Pick
Will Anderson Jr. +160
Will Levis +200
CJ Stroud +250
Tyree Wilson +300
Bryce Young +1000
Anthony Richardson +2000
Jalen Carter +3000
Christian Gonzalez +10000
Jaxon Smith-Njigba +10000
Paris Johnson Jr. +10000
Peter Skoronski +10000
Devon Witherspoon +10000
Will McDonald IV +10000
Bijan Robinson +10000
Best Bet for No. 2 Overall Pick
Will Anderson Jr. (+160) — He’s the favorite for a reason. The Alabama edge rusher has a chance to immediately change a franchise with his ability to get to the quarterback.
Anderson recorded double-digit sacks in two of his three years with the Crimson Tide, including a 17.5-sack campaign in 2021. After logging 101 total tackles two seasons ago, Anderson only finished with 51 stops and 10 sacks in 2022 while dealing with more pass protections focused on stopping him.
Don’t let the hype fatigue change your opinion on Anderson, who should thrive at the NFL level. The Texans will have to address the quarterback situation eventually, but it is difficult to pass up a talent like Anderson when a franchise has lost 38 games over the last three years.
Predictions for the Top 5
1. Bryce Young, QB — Carolina Panthers
2. Will Anderson Jr., Edge — Houston Texans
3. Tyree Wilson, Edge — Arizona Cardinals
4. Will Levis, QB — Indianapolis Colts
5. Jalen Carter, DL — Seattle Seahawks
