Let the speculation begin. With the ​NFL Combine coming to a close, NFL fans will turn their collective attention to the 2019 NFL Draft. This year's draft is loaded with blue-chip prospects in the front seven, and there are quite a few players who look worthy of the No. 1 overall selection. 


With that said, let's break down the odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbookto see who will potentially be the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Nick Bosa, DL, Ohio State (+100)

​Nick Bosa is currently the favorite to go first overall, despite missing most of this season with a core injury. Bosa proved he's back to full strength during the NFL Combine, posting a 4.79 40-yard dash time, putting up 29 reps on the bench press and showing off his 33.5-inch vertical. For a 6' 4" man who weighs 266 pounds, these are impressive numbers. 


If the Arizona Cardinals stay at No. 1, and pass on ​Kyler Murray, Bosa looks like the pick. The NFC West is loaded with talented quarterbacks, so grabbing an elite edge rusher like Bosa should be a priority for the Cardinals. This all adds up to Bosa being the even-money favorite to be draft with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.


Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma (+120)

It's crazy to think how quickly Murray climbed draft boards since publicly affirming his commitment to football rather than MLB. While Murray's diminutive stature may give some teams cause for concern, it doesn't seem like Cardinals' head coach Kliff Kingsbury is in that boat. Last year, Kingsbury publicly stated he would take Murray with the first pick in the NFL Draft.

Of course, Kingsbury had no idea he would actually be in a position to draft Murray when he made those comments, but you have to believe the Cardinals are taking a long look at drafting the Heisman Trophy winner at No. 1. An endorsement from the head coach of the team with the first pick is enough to put Murray at +120 odds, according to ​FanDuel Sportsbook.

Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama (+330) 

​Quinnen Williams is yet another highly-touted defensive lineman coming out of Alabama, but his monstrous performance at the NFL Combine should differentiate him from many of his former teammates. Williams weighed in at 303 pounds, and somehow managed to run a 4.83 40-yard dash. That's the fourth-fastest 40-yard dash time of any defensive lineman weighing more than 300 pounds. People that big shouldn't be able to move that fast, and these numbers indicate Williams could have an Aaron Donald-esque impact on the interior. 


Bosa and Murray may be getting most of the hype, but Williams proved he belongs in the conversation to go first overall. At +330, Williams makes a great value bet.

Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State (+800) 

​Dwayne Haskins is a sleeper pick to go first overall, which is shocking considering he led the nation with 4,831 passing yards and 50 touchdowns last season. Haskins' lack of collegiate experience is a bit of a red flag for NFL talent evaluators, but it's not hard to envision a team falling in love with his measurables and trading up to get him. He's probably the least likely player to go No. 1 on this list, but his 8-to-1 odds make him well worth a look.


We'll see who ends up going first in the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 25, but the odds on ​FanDuel Sportsbook certainly favor Bosa right now.
