This year’s Senior Bowl has come and gone giving online NCAAF betting fans a glimpse into the future talent heading into the NFL. Although some sportsbook fans have mixed feelings about the Senior Bowl, it undoubtedly showcases the best prospects entering the NFL draft, giving football fans an opportunity to get excited about their team’s possible selections.
This year’s Senior Bowl once again pitted the best talent in the nation against each other. The South, coached by Cleveland Browns’ head coach Hue Jackson, was able to come away with a 16-15 win over the North – who was coached by Chicago Bears’ head coach John Fox.
Even though the South came away with the win, plenty of individual players’ market value dropped, while others took a sharp rise. Now that the online NCAAF betting community has had a chance to digest each player’s performance in the Senior Bowl, let’s take a look at which players rank as top prospects on the offensive side of the ball.
- DeShone Kizer – Notre Dame – Redshirt Sophomore
- Deshaun Watson – Clemson – Junior
- Brad Kaaya – Miami – Junior
- Mitch Trubisky – North Carolina – Redshirt Junior
- Patrick Mahomes – Texas Tech – Junior
The names that should stick-out the most are DeShone Kizer and Deshaun Watson. Both players’ value certainly suffered from an inconsistent season, but Watson’s triumphant performance in this year’s title game was too epic for sportsbook fans to ignore.
- Leonard Fournette – LSU – Junior
- Dalvin Cook – Florida State – Junior
- Christian McCaffrey – Stanford – Junior
- Jamaal Williams – BYU – Redshirt Junior
- Alvin Kamara – Redshirt Junior – Tennessee
Some football betting sites believe this to be one of the best runningback classes in recent years and it could very well prove to be. Obviously Fournette and Cook have the top spots locked down, but the first round of this year’s draft could be loaded with running backs selections.
- Corey Davis – Western Michigan — Senior
- Mike Williams – Clemson – Redshirt Junior
- John Ross – Washington – Redshirt Junior
- Zay Jones – East Carolina – Senior
- Dede Westbrook – Oklahoma – Senior
Just like the running back class is led by two studs, the top spots in this year’s wide receiver class dutifully belong to both Corey Davis and Mike Williams. However, of the lot, Zay Jones made the biggest sportsbook impression in the Senior Bowl.
- OJ Howard – Alabama – Senior
- David Njoku – Miami – Redshirt Sophomore
- Evan Engram – Ole Miss – Senior
- Jake Butt – Michigan – Senior
- Bucky Hodges – Virginia Tech – Redshirt Junior
Although Zay Jones lit up the Senior Bowl on offense, OJ Howard’s performance is the only one that could rival Jones’. There’s a bunch of great talent in this year’s tight end class, but Howard could very well get drafted in the Top 10.
- Ryan Ramczyk – Offensive Tackle – Wisconsin – Redshirt Junior
- Antonio Garcia – Offensive Tackle – Troy – Redshirt Senior
- Dan Feeney – Offensive Guard – Indiana – Redshirt Senior
- Ethan Pocic – Center – LSU – Senior
- Cam Robinson – Offensive Tackle – Alabama – Junior
It’s no online NCAAF betting secret that this year’s offensive lineman class is severely lacking, but that won’t stop franchising from picking the big guys early in the draft. Of the lot, Robinson is arguably the biggest and is bound to draw some attention from teams early in the first round.
