ODDS TO BE THE 1ST OVERALL PICK IN THE 2023 NFL DRAFT

Quarterback Bryce Young (+200) opens as the favorite to be the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft with DraftKings.

Bettors placing a $100 wager on Young to be selected first would win back $300 ($100 wager + $200).

NFL DRAFT ORDER PROCESS

  • The NFL Draft order is determined by the standings at the end of the regular season
  • The team with the worst record will select first in the NFL Draft and each team will follow up to the 20th selection
  • The remaining 12 teams that qualified for the playoffs will be placed in order of their elimination during the postseason

NFL DRAFT HISTORY NO. 1 PICKS

Looking at the recent NFL Draft History, quarterbacks have been selected first in six of the last eight drafts including the last four.

NFL NO. 1 DRAFT HISTORY

  • 2022 - Travon Walker, EDGE, Jacksonville Jaguars
  • 2021 - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
  • 2020 - Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
  • 2019 - Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals
  • 2018 - Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns
  • 2017 - Myles Garrett, DE, Cleveland Browns
  • 2016 - Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams
  • 2015 - Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • 2014 - Jadeveon Clowney, DE, Houston Texans
  • 2013 - Eric Fisher, T, Kansas City Chiefs
  • 2012 - Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts
  • 2011 - Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers
  • 2010 - Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams
  • 2009 - Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions

A quarterback has been taken with the No. 1 overall pick in five of the last six drafts. Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns was the lone exception within that time span.

The No. 1 overall pick has been a quarterback or a lineman in each of the last 24 drafts, making it highly unlikely that a running back, receiver, linebacker, or defensive back will be the first player whose name we hear on April 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
