Kyle Pitts Draft Odds
As mentioned before, Kyle Pitts is favored and rightfully so being that the tight end position is such a scarce position in the league and such a generational talent only comes around once in a blue moon.
Something to keep in mind here is that the first three picks in the draft are sure to be quarterbacks which leave the Atlanta Falcons selecting fourth in which they could go one of two ways. They could simply draft Kyle Pitts as they believe Matt Ryan still has something left in the tank, or they could decide to move on from Ryan and draft a quarterback.
Even if the Falcons were to select a quarterback with the fourth pick in the NFL Draft, Pitts’ odds are still in play as the Cincinnati Bengals select fifth overall and surely do not need a quarterback as they selected Joe Burrow last year.
Pitts to the Cincinnati Bengals does make sense as well being that they are still a young team and Joe Burrow has already shown that he can build chemistry with his receivers at an elite level.
With that, NFL bettors could indeed place a bet here on Pitts to be the first non-QB drafted and feel good about it.
Penei Sewell Draft Odds
For those NFL bettors that are looking to make a bit of a riskier bet, they can look no further than arguably the best offensive tackle in the draft, Penei Sewell. As for potential landing spots for Sewell, bettors can look back to the Falcons and Bengals once again.
Starting with the Atlanta Falcons at the fourth pick, it would make sense for the Falcons to draft Sewell if they decide to continue building around Matt Ryan. That is because the Falcons ranked 21 in the NFL in terms of their offensive line as they allowed for Ryan to be sacked a total of 41 times in 2020.
Now if the Falcons do decide to go the quarterback route, Sewell would be the top option for the Bengals as they ranked way below the Falcons at 30 in the league for their offensive line in which they allowed 32 sacks on Joe Burrow in the 10 games he played.
With that being said, bettors can certainly bank on either Pitts or Sewell to be the first and second non-quarterbacks drafted.
The first round of the NFL Draft is slated to begin on April 29 and will be exclusively shown on NFL Network.
