The 2022 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, giving each of the 32 teams a chance to find some defensive help. Fortunately, this year's linebacker class has several prospects who are NFL-ready and can help their future professional team this Fall.

FanDuel Sportsbook is currently favoring Utah's Devin Lloyd at -450 odds to be the first linebacker selected in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Lloyd spent all four seasons of his collegiate career with the Utes, but his 2021 campaign was his best. He finished with 111 tackles (22.0 for a loss), 7.0 sacks, six defended passes and four interceptions — two of which were returned for touchdowns — while also being named the Pac-12 Championship Game MVP.

Georgia's Nakobe Dean sits second on the list at +300 odds. He was impressive in his own right last season, amassing 72 tackles, 6.0 sacks and a pair of interceptions. Dean ended up taking home his own fair share of accolades and awards, including the Butkus Award for college football's top linebacker. Fellow Bulldog Quay Walker sits a distant third at +1100 odds.

Here's a look at how the rest of the odds to be the first linebacker selected in the 2022 NFL Draft are shaping up.
