Elite edge defenders are one of the most highly coveted assets in today's NFL, and that's what Chase Young looks capable of quickly developing into. While he's not expected to be the first pick, an honor that will likely be Joe Burrow's, he's being widely regarded as the likely second pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

With that in mind, here are the three biggest favorites to draft Young, according to odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, where you can place a wager on his landing spot.

3. New York Giants (+500)

The New York Giants have no shortage of needs this year, and picking fourth overall in the first round will give them plenty of options. The team would love to have an elite edge defender like Young, but No. 4 is simply too low in the draft to be a likely landing spot for Young.

2. Detroit Lions (+200)

At No. 3, the Detroit Lions have a much better shot at Young, especially with the possibility that we see a team trade up to draft Tua Tagovailoa second overall. While the Lions also have plenty of needs, and corner Jeff Okudah is regularly being mocked to Detroit, having Young still on the board would likely be too good to pass up.

1. Washington Redskins (-230)

Holding that No. 2 overall pick, the Redskins have said they may consider bringing in a QB to compete with Dwayne Haskins. This could just be a smokescreen to try to stir up interest in other teams trading up, however. Replacing a first-round QB just one season into his NFL career is almost unheard of, and the Redskins remain massive favorites to pull the trigger on Young. He would form a dangerous young duo on the edge with 2019 first-round pick Montez Sweat.
