The initial odds for 2019 Defensive NFL Rookie of the Year have been released and favorite status belongs to not one, but a trio of top-10 picks from the 2019 NFL Draft.

Those three are No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa of the San Fransisco 49ers, Devin White, who went fifth overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers' No. 10 selection, Devin Bush. They all have +850 odds to win Defensive Rookie of the Year, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Rounding out the top five to take home the award are Josh Allen, the No. 7 pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Jets' No. 3 overall selection Quinnen Williams, who both have +1100 odds.

With all five of these players going in the first 10 picks of the 2019 NFL Draft, it's no wonder they're the early favorites to take home 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Other top-10 picks with slightly longer odds include No. 4 overall pick of the Oakland Raiders, Clelin Ferrell, who sits at +2200, and the ninth selection, Ed Oliver of the Buffalo Bills, at +1600.

With seven of the top-10 players drafted all on the defensive side of the ball, there's a ton of talent vying for this award, which means we're likely in for a tight race for Defensive Rookie of the Year this coming 2019 NFL season.
