The 2020 NFL Draft class is one of the most loaded in recent memory, and it's absolutely flush with top skill-position players.

It takes a true top-end running back prospect to be considered as a viable first-round pick, and that's exactly what Georgia's D'Andre Swift is. Accordingly, FanDuel Sportsbook has set the over/under on his draft spot at 28.5, suggesting he's expected to go toward the end of the first round.

Swift's draft odds also have him projected to be the first running back off the board in 2020, with an edge over Jonathan Taylor and J.K. Dobbins. Having at least one of these three selected in Round 1 is also a heavy favorite, with the over on "over/under 0.5 running backs drafted in Round 1" getting -340 odds.

Swift didn't have the stellar combine that Taylor did, but he did manage to top 1,300 yards from scrimmage and score at least 8 touchdowns in each of his final two seasons in Athens.

There are no shortage of RB-needy teams this year, with a couple in particular that could make Swift a first-round pick. The Miami Dolphins have the luxury of three first-round draft picks, including one at No. 26 overall. Teams picking earlier, like the Atlanta Falcons (No. 16) could also opt to trade down if Swift is being expected to go later.

Of course, plenty can still change with one month to go before the draft gets underway, so we can expect the odds to continue shifting as April 23 approaches.
