There has been a ton of speculation about what the New York Giants will do with the No. 4 overall pick in next week's NFL Draft.

They have a big need at tackle on the offensive line, but would that need be big enough in their eyes to overshadow what seems to be a can't-miss pick and generational talent in Isaiah Simmons at linebacker, a position that isn't exactly a strength either.

Giants NFL Draft Odds

While we have seen the odds go back and forth about which position is more likely to be taken, offensive line or linebacker, as we get down within a week of the draft, a new name has sprung up the most likely pick, according to the odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Giants NFL Draft Odds for First Pick

Alabama's tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. now has the best odds to be the Giants first-round pick at +150. Additionally, offensive lineman is now the most likely position group for the Giants to draft, according to the odds, which are now at -280.

Most recently, this was flipped with Isaiah Simmons and linebacker being the most likely outcome for each.

We have even seen others from that tackle group be up there, like Mekhi Becton and Tristan Wirfs. However, it has been a long time since we have seen Wills in that position.

While these odds might seem solidified this close to the draft, there has been so much movement that anything could happen in the coming days, especially if you think the Giants are throwing out some smokescreens ahead of draft day.
