The top prospects for the future
Any and all sports depend on the rotation of their players to continue existing. Time does not stop and those that need to retire because of their age, must make way for the new blood to pour in. The process for the change of personnel, as always for the American sports, is a matter of drafting the best college players. However, it’s not only the fans and the clubs that pay attention. It’s also the bookmakers that offer original betting accounts. The youngesters will shape their odds.
The top 7
This list presents an interesting development. There is only one offensive pick. All of the rest are fine defenders. Last year’s draft gave the chance to a star like Ja’Mar Chase to shine. This year it does not look like there will be another one. Let’s take a look:
- Aidan Hutchinson
A 6’6’’, 265 lbs defensive end. It’s his skills in both blitzing and pass-rushing that have placed him at the top of the list for many scouts, especially for the teams looking to increase their defensive pressure. First to have a crack at him are the Jacksonville Jaguars.
- Kayvon Thibodeaux
At 6’’6’ and 250 lbs, Kayvon is slightly smaller than Hutchinson but no less ferocious. As a defensive end, he can bring great pressure, is an elite pass-rusher and can use his speed to get double-digit sacks easily. He was also the top high school recruit in 2019. First dibs on him go to Detroit Lions.
- Evan Neal
Linemen are generally bigger than anyone else on the court, and Evan is huge. At 6’’7’, 370 lbs he can stop any defender from sacking his quarterback as an offensive tackle. Being no. 3 on most of the mock drafts means that the first say belongs to the Houston Texans..
- Kyle Hamilton
This young safety is both fast and strong. While he missed most of the last season due to an injury, he will show up at the combine in March and will probably impress heavily. With his wide variety of skills, he could be a fine addition to the New York Jets..
- Ikem Ekwonu
Agile guard and tackle, despite his size. He stops pass-rushers. Do the New York Giants need a player like him?
- Derek Stingley Jr.
Another victim of injury, this cornerback is 6’’1 and 195 lbs. Although he had two full seasons of playtime, his physical abilities as well as intangibles, could be of extreme value to the Carolina Panthers..
- Drake London
The only wide receiver in this list had fractured his ankle on the last days of October, ending the season for him. With over 1,000 yards received, 88 catches, and an amazing vertical ability, he can outleap any corner and grab the football easily. The choice falls to the New York Giants..
The teams mentioned above are those who have the option of the pick on the first round of the draft. It does not mean that the players will be merged into their rosters as there has been and will be trading between the clubs and the draft rights. The deciding factor is and will always be what the teams need. In any case, and wherever they end up, they will form the odds that you will get by registering for an original betting account.
