NFL Draft Odds Reveal Neck-and-Neck Race Between CJ Stroud and Bryce Young as No. 1 Overall Pick


Much of the college Football world is focused on the College Football Playoff, but there are plenty already looking toward the 2023 NFL Draft. With this being a good year for quarterbacks, as you can expect, players at that position are in the talks to be the No. 1 overall pick.

Two guys in that crowd have stood out above the rest. One playing in the College Football Playoff, the other is not. Ohio State's CJ Stroud and Alabama's Bryce Young seem to be in a battle for who will be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released odds on who will be the top pick in April's draft, and both Young and Stroud are tied for the most likely, each sitting at +155.

Both have put together amazing seasons. Stroud has over 3,300 passing yards to go along with 37 touchdowns compared to just six interceptions. Bryce Young has just over 3,000 passing yards with 25 touchdowns and five interceptions. Young has also added 195 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground, while Stroud has been a non-factor in the rushing game.

Both players have the chance to put themselves ahead of one another in postseason play. Let's take a look at the top-10 odd to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft as it stands now.
