First Pick Prop Odds

The 2009 NFL Draft is quickly approaching, with the first round set to kick off at 4:00PM ET on Saturday, April 25.

Oddsmakers have released prop odds for the draft and have made Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford the favorite to be taken with the first overall pick.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford a whopping –500 favorite to be taken with the first overall pick. The next best odds belong to Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith at +300.

Thanks to their 0-16 season, the Detroit Lions own the top pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The Lions have holes at every position, but most notably at quarterback, offensive tackle and linebacker, making Stafford, Smith and Wake Forest ‘backer Aaron Curry top choices at number one.

The Lions have already reportedly begun contract discussions with Stafford, Smith and Curry, and have said all offseason that whichever player they can sign before the draft is the one that will be selected at No. 1. Stafford still remains the favorite since he plays such an important position, but that doesn’t mean Smith and Curry won’t be the picks.

The versatile and athletic Smith is currently +300 to be the first overall pick in the draft, while Curry (who can play all three linebacker spots and would look awfully good playing next to Ernie Sims in Detroit’s 4-3 alignment) is +1000. At those odds, Curry is quite the value pick and could cash in big.

The 2009 NFL Draft kicks off at 4:00PM ET on Saturday, April 25, live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. For complete prop odds on the players most likely to be taken with the first overall pick, see below.
