NFL Draft Betting Odds - 2017 AFC/NFC Football Draft Prediction

NFL Draft Proposition BettingWhen: April 27 - 29, 2017

Where: Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia

The popular guy always gets the girl.

That premise was something owners of less popular teams struggled with as the best players in the league routinely signed with teams that had already built up rich histories like the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Boston Redskins and New York Giants. That was until May of 1935 when Bert Bell – co-owner of the Philadelphia Eagles – proposed a draft be instituted so as to enhance the games overall play and enhance each individual franchise’s chance of success at the ticket counters.

His proposal was adopted unanimously that day and executed the following offseason. The teams would get draft picks according to how good or bad they were the previous season. Bad teams were awarded high draft picks, while the better teams would select at the end of rounds.

The first draft was held back in 1936 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia. Only 90 players were made available with the only known info on them coming from print media sources, visits to local colleges or recommendations from other team owners.

It turned into a whole new ball game once the scouting era kicked in back in the late 40s and through the 50s. As the draft gained more and more popularity, it was only a matter of time until it needed its own stage. With the digital age making all information readily available for anyone searching it, the NFL Draft is now the biggest of the four major sports.

Fans of the league and teams go out in droves to support their franchises as their new players are announced over the course of seven rounds. The Draft was moved to weekend coverage back in 2006, but was then later given three-days of coverage in 2010 with ESPN and the NFL Network making a multiple day event out of the festivities in 2010.

Every team is given one pick per round. What they do with that pick is 100 percent up to them. They can use the pick or trade it. Draft order is as follows. Picks 1-20 go to non-playoff teams. Teams eliminated in the Wild Card round go from 21-24, while teams eliminated in the Divisional round go from 25-28. Conference runners-up pick at no. 29 and 30, while the Super bowl runner-up and winner close the festivities out at No. 31 and 32.

The draft is a very long process and one that only really sees many people interested in it on the first day. That said, what goes down on days two and three are also just as important with teams trying to build their depth or find that diamond in the rough.

Futures odds can change dramatically once the NFL Draft comes to a close. If a team needed to shore up a specific area of the team but failed to do so, you can expect their odds of winning the division conference or Super Bowl to get longer. On the flipside, if it was thought a team only needed a capable quarterback or stud running back to help push them over the top and they go out and get him, it’s likely that teams futures odds get shorter due to the betting public noticing the work they did in the draft.

A fun quirk of the NFL Draft is coining the final player selected in it as Mr. Irrelevant. While not all players selected last in the draft have been worthless, more times than not, they haven’t made much of an impact.

In this day and age of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, it’s gotten easier and easier to see celebrities or athletes and see what they actually do on a daily basis outside of their professional arena. That unfortunately was the case for Mississippi offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil whose draft stock plummeted after a leaked video of him crushing a gas-mask bong hit his social media pages the day of the 2016 NFL Draft. Originally thought to be a top 5 pick, Tunsil slipped all the way down to No. 13 and lost out on a heaping load of money because of it.
