Detroit Lions Dictate 2009 NFL Draft Odds

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

2009 NFL Draft odds are going to be dictated by what the Detroit Lions decided to do with the #1 pick.

Many 2009 NFL Draft odds experts believe the Lions will select Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford with the #1 pick. If that happens then things will fall more into order in 2009 NFL Draft odds, but what if it doesn’t?

2009 NFL Draft Betting odds do not have Stafford as the best player in the draft. Most 2009 NFL Draft betting experts have Stafford rated between #4 and #10 overall. The Lions are in desperate need of a quarterback though and Stafford is the top one available in 2009 NFL Draft odds. If the Lions don’t go with Stafford they will probably go with an offensive lineman. The top lineman in the draft is Jason Smith out of Baylor. It used to be that Alabama’s Andre Smith was the top rated prospect but his stock has continued to fall in recent weeks according to experts who look at 2009 NFL Draft betting odds. The best defensive lineman looks to be B.J. Raji out of Boston College but most experts don’t believe he will go #1 overall.

The top rated prospect in 2009 NFL Draft odds is wide receiver Michael Crabtree out of Texas Tech. Many 2009 NFL Draft odds experts believe that he will go to Seattle at #4 but that could change since the Seahawks signed T.J. Houshmandzadeh in free agency. The Raiders, Bengals and Jaguars all have picks in the Top 10 in 2009 NFL Draft odds and would gladly take Crabtree if he is available. After Crabtree, the consensus top player available in 2009 NFL Draft odds is Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry. Almost every single 2009 NFL Draft betting expert believes Curry is the safest pick in the draft. He is labeled a can’t-miss prospect who will impact a team right away.

If Detroit passes on Stafford at #1 it is possible he could fall all the way to San Francisco at #10. That is why Detroit holds the keys to 2009 NFL Draft odds. The Lions also hold the #20 pick in 2009 NFL Draft odds as they picked up this pick from the Dallas Cowboys in last year’s Roy Williams trade. The only other team with two picks in 2009 NFL Draft odds in the first round is the Philadelphia Eagles who select 21st and 28th.
