There's little doubt as to who is going to be the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Some wild rumors may still swirl, but it's all but a lock that Joe Burrow will be a Cincinnati Bengal.

The real conversation comes at the No. 2 pick. Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young is being mocked to the Washington Redskins with the second pick in most places. Washington has said it's open to drafting a quarterback, however, and whether that's a genuine statement or an attempt to make someone desperate to trade for the pick, that leaves a real chance that Tua Tagovailoa ends up picked.

The betting odds, available on FanDuel Sportsbook, reflect that.

Odds to Be Second Pick in NFL Draft 2020

The favorites are clear. Young is the odds-on favorite and is implied a better than 50 percent chance of going second overall, which would almost certainly be to the Redskins.

Tua isn't a huge underdog though, at +120 odds, and that could see him go to any number of teams.

Also noteworthy is that nobody else is even in the same conversation as those two favorites. The top corner, Jeff Okudah, and top two linemen, Jedrick Wills Jr. and Andrew Thomas, all have odds of +1700 or worse. They'll all still likely be high picks (especially Okudah, who may go No. 3 to the Detroit Lions), but we've really got a two-man race at No. 2.

There's still plenty of time for these odds to shift before the NFL Draft rolls around in late April, but that's not likely to include a third player coming into the running. The biggest stories here are going to be the continued updates on Tua's health, as well as the conversation around whether Washington could be interested in trading the pick, or in drafting another first-round QB to compete with Dwayne Haskins.
