With a long list of quarterbacks set to be drafted in this year's class, Jordon Love and his ultimate draft position might be the most unpredictable. Some mock drafts have shown him going as high as No. 6 overall to the Los Angeles Chargers, while others have him falling as far back as the middle of the second round.

With all this potential confusion around where Love could land, let's take a look at which teams the oddsmakers at FanDuel Sportsbook have as the former Utah State QB's most likely landing spots in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Betting Favorites to Draft Jordan Love

Tom Brady has officially moved on and for now, Jarrett Stidham seems to be the starting quarterback for next season. However, no one really seems to believe he will end up being the long-term solution. The Patriots have clearly passed on signing a veteran like Cam Newton, or trading for someone like Andy Dalton or Josh Rosen, but drafting a guy like Love, who Belichick could develop while Stidham starts next season, could be a viable move. If Stidham works out, then you have a great trade piece, if he doesn't, you have Love waiting in the wings with a year of learning under his belt and much better physical tools than Stidham.

2. Las Vegas Raiders (+500)

There have been rumors all offseason that the Raiders are looking to move on from Derek Carr at some point. Bringing in a guy like Love with all the physical tools, but providing him a chance to sit, learn and develop for a year or two behind Carr (who has three years remaining on his deal), could be a perfect fit for Love.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars (+200)

The Jaguars come in as the favorites here, which some may view as odd, considering the success of Gardner Minshew II last season, but in ways it makes sense. They traded Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears, so right off the bat they need a backup QB, or at least someone to fill that role in essence. While Minshew did have some success last year, it wasn't over-the-top success and it was a small sample size. It's not a total surprise that the Jaguars would be in the market for a potential predecessor just to be safe.
