Offensive Rookie of the Year odds

Here are some of the favorites for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Drake London (+550): The Atlanta offense could be sneaky strong in 2022 with London, the USC product, and star TE Kyle Pitts teaming up. The jury is still out on whether or not Marcus Mariota can make it as a legit starting QB in the league but the Falcons front office has given him some real weapons to work with.

Kenny Pickett (+600): This award is often about opportunity and it looks as though Pickett will get plenty of it in Pittsburgh this season. More times than not, the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award goes to a quarterback that sees immediate playing time. Pickett tossed a highly impressive 42 TDs last season at Pitt.

Treylon Burks (+700): Burks was often compared to AJ Brown prior to the Draft and the Titans liked Burks so much that they replaced the more expensive Brown with him in a matter of minutes on Day 1 of the NFL Draft. The Arkansas product is a major threat to take it to the house every time he touches the football as he led the SEC with 22 plays of 20-plus yards last season, according to The Athletic.

Breece Hall (+700): Instinctive and naturally elusive with an ideal frame for the position at 5-11, 217, Breece Hall has all the necessary tools to make an instant impact at the next level. Hall was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in both 2020 and 2021 and a unanimous All-American. With a 4.39 40-yard dash time, Hall has breakaway speed, in addition to hands that can corral the football. Breece Hall has all the physical and instinctual attributes to win this award, and it never hurts playing in New York.

Christian Watson (+950): For all the natural gifts Christian Watson displayed at the combine and on tape, perhaps the most significant factor going in his favor when it comes to winning this award is having Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback. But let’s not gloss over those attributes, which include a 6-4, 208-pound frame, a 6-5 wingspan, and a 4.36-second 40-yard-dash time. It’s not all rosy in the scouting report though, as he’s average at tracking deep passes and has trouble high-pointing the ball.

Malik Willis (+750): There’s not much of a reason to bet Malik Willis at the current number of +750 to win Offensive Rookie of the Year. He’s undersized at just over six feet tall, and there’s little chance he plays for the Titans this season outside of a Ryan Tannehill injury.

Defensive Rookie of the Year odds

Here are a few of the favorites for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Aidan Hutchinson (+400): Widely considered the best player in the draft, Aidan Hutchinson should start immediately for a Lions franchise and fanbase thirsty to see their homegrown star make an immediate impact. Hutchinson is an ideal size for an edge rusher at 6-7, 260 and features both a quick first step as well as explosiveness. Hutchinson can also play the run as well as he rushes the quarterback, giving him the full package of traits to live up to his elite 95 grade given by NFL Next Gen Stats.

Kayvon Thibodeaux (+450): Kayvon Thibodeaux was ahead of Aidan Hutchinson on most big boards throughout the college football regular season, but was surpassed during the post-season draft process. Thibodeaux has a slightly different skill set than Hutchinson, as he’s three inches shorter and ten pounds lighter, which gives him a speed advantage to get to the quarterback, but doesn’t give him quite the full package as Aidan.

Travon Walker (+550): The surprise #1 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Travon Walker was one of the key cogs in the Georgia Bulldogs historically elite defense in 2021. Despite being the #1 overall pick, Walker is more of a project than an immediate impact player like Aidan Hutchinson. He has incredible raw skills, with a 4.51 40-yard dash and a 6-5, 272-pound frame. But whether he can transfer those traits immediately to the NFL is the big question. Jacksonville will need to coach Walker up in order for him to reach his full potential.

Quay Walker (+750): If you’re looking to take a Georgia Bulldog to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, a better target than Travon is likely Quay Walker. A 6-4, 241-pound linebacker, Quay is physical at the point of attack, aggressive as a blitzer, and more than capable in pass coverage. With a 4.52 40-yard dash, Quay Walker has the speed to get to the quarterback and cover the entire field.

Jermaine Johnson II (+750): Jermaine Johnson is a well-rounded edge rusher but scouting reports suggest he’ll make his living defending the run rather than running down quarterbacks. To win this award from the edge position sacks are going to be a necessary entry on a player’s resume, which might lead one to look in another direction when it comes to Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Offensive ROY odds: What happened last year?

Last year’s NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year race was a wild one as Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was a big favorite as late as Dec. 22. Jones, who was navigating New England back to the postseason after a one year absence, was -700 at DraftKings Sportsbook just prior to Christmas. Enter Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase, who posted two phenomenal receiving weeks around the holidays. Chase had 10 catches for 125 yards in a 41-21 Bengals win over the Ravens on Dec. 26, and then followed that up with an ungodly 266 yards receiving with 3 TDs in a 34-31 victory over the Chiefs.

Jones, meanwhile, was mediocre down the stretch of the regular season – allowing Chase to ultimately come away with the award. The former LSU star received 42 of 50 votes while Jones grabbed five votes.

Defensive Rookie of the year odds: What happened last year?

The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year race was far different than that of the offensive side. Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons was at the top of odds boards for the majority of the 2021 – 2022 season.

Parsons, the No. 12 overall pick in last year’s Draft, racked up 84 tackles and posted 13 sacks. The sack total was just two shy of the NFL rookie record. Parsons earned all 50 votes for DROY.
