2020 is a different animal, so even though ‘Bama will have to wait until Nov. 7 to get revenge on the field in Baton Rouge, it can begin to restore its dominance by edging the defending champion in first-rounders selected on April 23.
FanDuel has set NFL Draft odds for five schools who have a chance to send multiple first-round picks.
The total expected to hail from each of the Southeastern Conference’s top West Division powers was placed at 5.5, by far the largest number placed on any school in this draft. Look for Miami’s record of six to be matched in this draft by one of those programs.
Read on for a breakdown NFL Draft school-specific first round odds.
Total number of First-Rounders: OVER 5.5 (+102) UNDER 5.5 (-130)
Locks: QB Tua Tagovailoa, WR Jerry Jeudy, WR Henry Ruggs III, T Jedrick Wills.
Possibilities: S Xavier McKinney, CB Trevon Diggs, DT Raekwon Davis
There’s a chance that McKinney and Diggs are both selected along with the Tide’s four offensive standouts who could all be gone inside the Top-15, but a defense that twice surrendered the most points of any team in the Saban era probably won’t get their both of their top defensive backs selected. Davis is a likely second-rounder.
Total number of First-Rounders: OVER 5.5 (+225) UNDER 5.5 (-310)
Locks: QB Joe Burrow, WR Justin Jefferson, CB Kristian Fulton, T K’Lavon Chaisson.
Possibilities: S Grant Delpit, LB Patrick Queen, C Lloyd Cushenberry, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, DT Rashard Lawrence
While Alabama will undoubtedly surge ahead in this mini-race with the Bayou Bengals, don’t sleep on the closing speed of the defending champs. Fulton, Chaisson, Delpit and Queen may all hear their names called in the back-half of the first round and Cusheberry is one of the top available centers.
Total number of First-Rounders: OVER 2.5 (+225) UNDER 2.5 (-310)
Locks: LB Isaiah Simmons
Possibilities: WR Tee Higgins, CB AJ Terrell, S K’Von Wallace
The Tigers will have a top-five guy in Simmons and could see both Higgins and Terrell selected in the first round. We’ll see whether both will be able to rise up in a crowded crop at both positions.
Total number of First-Rounders: OVER 2.5 (+300) UNDER 2.5 (-450)
Locks: DE Chase Young, CB Jeff Okudah
Possibilities: LB Malik Harrison, CB Damon Arnette, RB J.K. Dobbins, G Jonah Jackson, DT Davon Hamilton
The Buckeyes may end up being the first school to have multiple players selected given how highly Young and Okudah are regarded but the wait for the third player from the school taken could extend into Friday.
Total number of First-Rounders: OVER 1.5 (-176) UNDER 1.5 (+138)
Locks: T Andrew Thomas
Possibilities: RB D’Andre Swift, T Isaiah Wilson, QB Jake Fromm
The Dawgs could see a pair of tackles selected among the first 32 picks but seem certain land at least one of their hog mollies in Round 1. Swift is the x-factor as arguably the top running back on the board, while Fromm has his admirers.
