The 2021 NFL draft is quickly approaching and the New York Jets possess the No. 2 overall pick after finishing 2-14 last season. They are widely projected to select a quarterback and if the pick is traded, the player drafted will likely still be a quarterback. Odds have now been set as to who that player will be.

BYU quarterback Zach Wilson leads the way with -180 odds to be drafted with the No. 2 overall pick, according to NFL draft odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook. Ohio State's Justin Fields comes in closely behind with odds set at +270.

NFL Draft No. 2 Overall Pick Odds

Wilson has been rising up draft boards ever since the beginning of the college football season and for good reason. He completed 247 of 346 pass attempts (73.5 completion percentage) for 3,692 yards and 33 touchdowns during his junior season at BYU. He also showcased his rushing abilities with 10 touchdowns on the ground.

Fields has always been a high NFL draft prospect and is touted for both his arm talent and mobility out of the pocket. He threw for 5,373 yards and ran for 867 yards during his two seasons as Ohio State's starter. He also racked up 78 total touchdowns as a Buckeye and helped lead the team to a National Championship Game appearance this past season.

Filling out the rest of the top three in the odds is Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell (+800). No matter what player is drafted, this slot in the draft is sure to drum up a lot of storylines this offseason until a name is called on April 29.
