While Kyler Murray is the clear favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and don an Arizona Cardinals jersey next season, the player that will be selected No. 2 is finally coming into focus.
Former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa has gained a clear separation from the rest of the field to be the No. 2 overall pick, and has -370 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Behind Bosa is fellow defensive lineman Quinnen Williams at +500 and linebacker Josh Allen at +700.
With the most likely scenario, according to the odds, sending the Ohio State product to the San Fransisco 49ers, Bosa will join his older brother, Joey, on a California team in the NFL. Joey is an elite pass rusher for the Los Angeles Chargers and many have drawn comparisons between the two in their college tapes.
Nick could be a great fit for the 49ers, playing across from Arik Armstead on the defensive line, especially considering that San Fransisco averaged a 6.39 percent sack rate in 2018 – No. 21 out of 31 NFL teams.
Kyler Murray surprisingly slides in with the fourth-best odds to go No. 2 overall (+1800), but the odds say he'll be the first name announced on draft day. If these odds are correct, maybe NFL fans should start trying to figure out who's going to be the third pick as No. 1 and No. 2 look all but set at this point.
