After a two-year break, the run of Oklahoma quarterbacks being the first overall pick in the NFL draft could continue.

Oklahoma signal-caller Spencer Rattler is favored by the PointsBet sportsbook to hear his name called first in 2022, at +225 odds. Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was the first overall pick in 2018, followed by Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray in 2019.

Next on the list is North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell (+350), Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux (+400), LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. (+800), USC quarterback Kedon Slovis (+1000), Liberty quarterback Malik Willis (+1500), Georgia quarterback JT Daniels (+1800), Florida quarterback Emory Jones (+2000), Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels (+2000), and Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton (+2500).

At BetMGM, Thibodeaux is the favorite at +250, following by Rattler (+300), Howell (+400), Slovis (+800), Stingley (+1100), Wills (+1400), Daniels (+1400), Hamilton (+2000), Miami tackle Zion Nelson (+2500), and Alabama tackle Evan Neal (+2500).

Two of the ten players with the shortest odds on PointsBet — Emory Jones and Jayden Daniels — are off the board for BetMGM.

Other major sportsbooks, including FanDuel and DraftKings, currently don’t have odds for the 2022 draft. (If they do and I’m just missing them on their websites — which is entirely possible — let me know.)

  1. I’m curious to see what kind of draft haul Houston gets for that spot…

  2. At this same time many years ago, it was Drew Brees who was favored to go #1. Then he proceeded to go out and blow away all the big 10 passing records that should have cemented him in as the overall #1. But the he went to the combine and he was too short. He ended up going in the second round.

  3. That would be NUTS! Santa Clara just took a QB at #3 and now they’re going to spend next year’s first overall on another… oh, wait… never mind…

  4. With the name Rattler has to go to a desert team. The Raiders? Usually though someone comes out of no where to be drafted number one.

  5. I’d take Sam Howell over Rattler, but we’ll see what happens this season. Things can change rapidly.

    No way Belichick goes QB two years in a row.
    He might have to with that BUST of a pick in McCorkle

  7. I’ve watched this kid, not impressed. Not accurate. Takes a long time to figure out if he should pass it or run it. Just generally looks confused a lot. Did I mention not accurate? And not exactly a Lamar Jackson-type athlete either. This guy reminds me more of Kellen Mond than anyone else.
