The 2022 NFL Draft is under a month away as college football standouts from across the country are preparing to hear their names called. One exciting position to keep an eye on is cornerback and odds have been released on FanDuel Sportsbook regarding which one will be taken off the board first.
Ahmad Gardner is a heavy favorite in these odds at -350. The Cincinnati standout has remarkable anticipation skills in coverage and regularly disrupts routes at the line of scrimmage. Gardner is coming off a junior season in which he racked up 40 tackles, 4 pass breakups and 3 interceptions.
The only other cornerback with odds listed below +1000 is LSU's Derek Stingley Jr. at +250. The 20-year-old ballhawk's physical style of play will fit in well at the NFL level alongside his ability to step up in rush defense. Stingley posted 20 pass breakups and 6 interceptions across 25 college games.
It would be surprising to see anyone take over the top spot in these odds before the end of April rolls around. An NFL trade or two could always shake things up, though. Here's a look at the rest of the cornerbacks listed.
