We all know how many defensive ends are in this loaded defensive draft class, but let's not overlook the talented pass catchers of the future.

There are plenty of athletic freaks who could dominate the NFL for the next decade and they will begin their reign of terror following the draft. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the biggest monster of them all is expected to go first.

D.K. Metcalf has the best odds to be the first wideout taken off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft at -105.

After the combine he had, you can't really act surprised.

Metcalf stunned the NFL universe with a 4.33 40-yard dash time and a record-breaking performance on the bench with 27 reps, the most for a wide receiver. Pair this with his 6'3", 228-pound frame and you can understand why so many teams are enamored by his potential.

Metcalf's teammate, A.J. Brown, actually had a better statistical season with more catches, yards, and touchdowns than Metcalf. He's second on the list with +600 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Marquise Brown, the cousin of All-Pro wideout Antonio Brown, has the blazing speed, big name, and stats (1,318 yards, 10 TD) to play the part of dark horse. His odds are +900.

We're just over a week away until we see which quarterbacks will get a brand new toy to play with next season. And if you pick right, you could cash in too.
