Jets NFL Draft odds

Odds listed below are via FanDuel Sportsbook.

Position of Jets First Drafted Player

  • Offensive Lineman -250
  • Wide Receiver +340
  • Tight End +750
  • Defensive Lineman +1400
  • Cornerback +2900
  • Quarterback +4500
  • Linebacker +20000
  • Running back +20000
  • Safety +20000

Offensive Lineman is the overwhelming favorite to be the first position selected by the Jets. At -250 odds, there's an implied probability of 71.43% that they'll go with an OL with their first pick. Wide Receiver (+340), Tight End (+750), and Defensive Lineman (+1400) are the other four realistic probabilities.

It makes when you realize the Jets tied for 28th in the NFL in quarterback sacks allowed per game, giving up an average of 3.8. If they want to keep Aaron Rodgers healthy, protecting him is going to be of utmost important.

In terms of which offensive lineman they'll selected, you can be assured that if Joe Alt from Notre Dame is still available at No. 10 overall, they will grab him quick. He's the -230 favorite to be the first lineman selected and the Jets may even trade up for him if they feel he's their guy. The Chargers, Giants, and Titans are other teams who may select an offensive lineman ahead of the Jets.

If Alt isn't available, they still have great options like Taliese Fuaga, J.C. Latham, and Olumuyiwa Fashanu.
