April's 2022 NFL Draft is right around the corner and it's still anyone's guess as to who the Jacksonville Jaguars will take with the first overall selection. As of last week, Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson and Alabama's Evan Neal were the +170 co-favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.

FanDuel Sportsbook's No. 1 overall pick odds have undergone a drastic turn since the last update. Evan Neal is now the sole favorite at +120 odds, which is extremely impressive since he was a +1600 longshot back in December.

Nevertheless, Neal has everything an NFL coach would love in an offensive tackle. He didn't allow more than three pressures in a game in 2021, finishing with 80.7 pass-blocking and 80.4 run-blocking grades on ProFootballFocus.

Meanwhile, Michigan pass-rusher Aidan Hutchinson sits second at +200 odds, while Oregon's Kayvon Thibodeaux and NC State's Ikem Ekwonu are tied for third at +800.
