I hope you all had the chance to read my Mock Draft. I put in a lot of work to make that article, and now I'm going to show you why you should trust me. The draft has now not only become a huge TV event, but also another opportunity for us to throw money on draft selections. Really a win win for everyone involved.
Here are the plays:
(Plays are listed in no particular order)
Aidan Hutchinson- 2nd overall -160 (4.8 units)
If Hutch doesn't go to the Lions at 2, then I will be an unhappy camper and not only Detroit, but the world as well. DO THE RIGHT THING DETROIT!
Garrett Wilson- 1st WR selected -130 (2.6 units)
Really think Wilson will go 8th overall to Falcons, followed closely by London at 10.
Derek Stingley Jr - 1st CB selected +135 (1 unit)
Hoping Texas select Stingley at 3 overall because they like him over Gardner. I still like my chances of Derek over Sauce even if he isn't selected 3rd overall
Sauce Gardner- o5.5 draft spot +120 (1 unit)
Texans won't select Gardner at 3, they will either take Stingley or an Edge rusher, and then picks 4 and 5 don't want a CB. Should be a breeze!
Andrew Booth Jr - u29.5 draft spot +150 (1.5 units)
I have Booth going at 14. Many other analysts have him going much higher than 30 so this should hit. However, there are a handful of CB's that could be drafted at the end of the 1st round, so Booth could fall there.
o5.5 CB's selected 1st round -105 (1.05 units)
I have 6 CB's selected in the 1st round of my mock draft. It will be a close bet especially with all the action at the end of the 1st round.
o7.5 OL selected 1st round +170 (2 units)
This is a whole lot of juice for a very reasonable bet. I have predicted 8 OL in the first round, and teams are going to want to snag these guys before time runs out.
u6.5 WR's selected 1st round -105 (1.05 units)
I predicted 6 WR's and think that is a fair evaluation. I'm not even sure who the 7th WR is off the board, but teams need WR's so anything can happen here.
Hutchinson #1, Thibodeaux #2, Willis 1st QB, Breece Hall 1st RB +750 (1 unit)
This is a hedge bet in case the Jags snag Hutchinson. Supposedly, from an unreliable source, Lions like big Thib if Hutch isn't available.
Walker #1, Hutch #2, Ewonu #3, Breece Hall 1st RB +500 (1 unit)
Another hedge for my Stingley bets. Don't see this happening which is why I put money on Stingley.
Falcons WR at #8, Seahawks OL at #9 +350 (1 unit)
This is exactly what I predicted in my mock draft, so I had to take it. Falcons have their choice of WR, and Seahawks should take an O lineman and will ruin everything if they take a QB here.
Wilson 1st WR, London 2nd WR +350 (3 units)
Yes, you read that right, 3 units on this big boy. Wilson is best WR in draft and will fit in at Atlanta. London is a big body that will compliment Elijah Moore at the Jets.
Wilson 1st WR, Willis 1st QB, Hall 1st RB +325 (1 unit)
Already stated the Wilson pick, Willis is the consensus #1 on most people's board, and Hall is going to be the first RB.
Eagles to select O and D in 1st round +250 (2 units)
Really think Philly will select a WR and a DL, but since their picks are so close, they could possibly trade back which would ruin the bet.
All top 10: Gardner, Stingley, London +250 (2 units)
Only question here is London at 10. He should be the clear choice for the Jets, but who knows what they're thinking.
Willis 1st QB, Ekwonu 1st OL, Hall 1st RB +200 (2 units)
Pretty much all of these picks have already been justified and explained.
Willis 1st QB, Wilson 1st WR +200 (1 unit)
All first round: Penning, McDuffie, Z. Johnson, Dotson +150 (1 unit)
I have Penning at 16, McDuffie at 25, Johnson at 27, and Dotson at 29. Should all go round one, but will be a sweat since at end of draft.
Looking at all of these, I realize I'm absolutely screwed if Pickett goes before Willis, Williams or London before Wilson, some other RB before Hall, and Gardner over Stingley. That would hurt, and I wish I hedged a little more, but this leads up to either a huge day, or a shitty day. I like living on the edge. .
Godspeed, and Enjoy! DO THE RIGHT THING DETROIT!
