The 2020 NFL Draft is just over a week away, and while players are not preparing to walk on the big stage when their name is called, it will still be a life-changing day for hundreds of the top athletes in the world. One player who could be hearing his name early is cornerback C.J. Henderson, who now has +150 odds to be drafted in the top 10, according to the NFL Draft odds being offered by FanDuel Sportsbook.
Coming out of the University of Florida, Henderson is projected as the second-best cornerback in the 2020 NFL Draft. He is an athletic freak, running a 4.39-second time in the 40-yard dash, to go along with a 37.5-inch vertical jump and a 127-inch broad jump.
With the raw athletic talent like this and his ability to track the ball in the air (6 interceptions, 20 passes defended in three seasons at Florida), Henderson is a player with great potential. It seems as though all of this is having a big effect on team's perceptions around him as we get closer to the draft, leading to his odds to be drafted in the first 10 shooting up.
If you're looking for a little wiggle room on your bet, but you feel Henderson is a top-10 prospect, betting the over/under on his draft position would give you a little less stress. Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook has his over/under of draft position set at 14.5, with the over still giving plus money (+104).
Potential landing spots in the top-10 for Henderson include the Detroit Lions, if they trade down from No. 3, Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals or Jacksonville Jaguars. Just outside the first 10 is the Las Vegas Raiders, at No. 12. With his stock rising so late, it will be interesting to see if all these reports actually hold water come draft day.
