Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams co-favorites for defensive rookie of the year

The first two defensive players in the draft have something else in common: They’re the co-favorites to be named the 2019 defensive rookie of the year.

Caesers Palace has set the odds at +400 for 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa and +400 for Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. For each, that means a $100 bet would win $400.

Bills defensive lineman Ed Oliver lands next at +550, Steelers linebacker Devin Bush comes in at +700, and Bucs linebacker Devin White sits at +800 along with Raiders defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell. Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen has +1000 odds.

Allen, frankly, is the most intriguing of the bunch. He joins a team with a potent defense, which should give him plenty of favorable matchups. He could end up with more sacks than any of his peers, and that could deliver the award.

  1. Look out Bills, your long reign as off-season champions is under threat! – at least according to Vegas.

    Clelin Ferrell, 15 sacks, 19 TFL, 85 tackles, 2 ints, 1 fumble return for a TD

    ————————–

    Ferrel was a borderline first rounder on everyone else’s draft board. You made him a top 4 pick. LOL

  3. Once Bosa completes his hold out, he’ll get hurt because he hasn’t played in over a year but when he comes back he will finish the season with 3 sacks.

  4. ^^^
    (Cue The Everly Brothers):

    Dreeeeeeam… Dream, Dream, Dream

  5. Sacs Schmacks!!!

    INT’s Baby!

    Nasir Adderley = 7+

    7+ yes, because he is a badass but more so because he will allow Derwin James to be unleashed

    Something no one has seen yet

    And he was #2 for ROY

    Adderley will get the INT’s James causes

    It’s going to be a beautiful thing

  6. How about letting the guys play a few games before anointing them as rookies of the year?

    I may be mistaken but sometimes highly drafted players don’t pan out.

  7. Either one would be good picks for Frisco. Frisco would probably have picked Williams if Arizona had picked Bosa insead of Kyler Murray.

  8. Nobody on this list. It will be someone you didnt see coming

  9. Funny, but I recall hearing the exact same thing directly following the Sheldon Richardson pick, the Leonard Williams pick, AND the Jamal Adams pick!

    The Sheldon pick was universally hated and he won DROY and Jamal was never in consideration by anybody since he doesn’t play a premiere position but he’s proving the thought that safeties aren’t valuable is wrong. Leo hasn’t lived up to his expectations but that’s not a bad thing he’s a good player and arguably the best player in the first round of that draft. Seriously, go back and look.

  11. Ferrel was a borderline first rounder on everyone else’s draft board. You made him a top 4 pick. LOL

    Mayock made him a top 4 pick. If I remember correctly (and I do), he made Khalil Mack a top 5 pick by banging the drum for him way before it was cool to do so.
