The 2022 NFL Draft is only a few days away and the Jacksonville Jaguars' target with the No. 1 overall pick is still up in the air. Alabama's Evan Neal became the favorite back in February until Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson took over the top spot in late March. Now, there is another name topping the list.

NFL Draft 2022

FanDuel Sportsbook's odds to go No. 1 at the 2022 NFL Draft went through a massive change this past weekend. Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Travon Walker is now the -150 favorite to go No. 1 overall, with Hutchinson owning the second-best odds at +150.

There's no denying that Walker played a key role on a Georgia defense that guided the team to a National Championship title. The 21-year-old racked up 33 tackles (7.5 for loss), 6.0 sacks and 2 passes defended while also being one of the best run-stoppers along the defensive line.

Hutchinson hasn't exactly done anything to cause his downfall and the rise of Walker has been surprising. The Bulldogs standout has been skyrocketing up draft boards across the league after an impressive showing at the NFL Combine. His measurements also line up to fit right in at the NFL level.

Despite what oddsmakers say, anything can happen at the 2022 NFL Draft. In the meantime, here's a look at how the rest of FanDuel Sportsbook's No. 1 overall pick odds are shaping up.
