The 2022 NFL Draft is only a few weeks away, opening the door for collegiate athletes to begin their professional careers. This year's crop of running back prospects is intriguing and FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds help indicate which one could be the first off the board.

FanDuel Sportsbook is currently favoring Iowa State's Breece Hall at -250 odds to be the first running back selected at the NFL Draft.

He received unanimous All-American honors and was awarded the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight season.
