Josh Allen drops to fourth-highest odds for No. 1 draft pick

At one point, former Kentucky pass-rusher Josh Allen was picking up steam for the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

He said it multiple times throughout the season, including after Kentucky’s Citrus Bowl victory over Penn State.

Since then, though, momentum has shifted toward Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray for the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 pick.

In fact, Odds Shark released their latest odds for Arizona’s first-round choice, and Murray is the overwhelming favorite at -500 overall.

As for Allen? He has dropped all the way down to No. 4 in terms of odds for the top pick at +2000 overall.

Here is the entire list:

While the odds for Allen going No. 1 overall are dropping, most draft analysts believe Allen will be going No. 2 overall to the San Francisco 49ers or No. 3 overall to the New York Jets.

Allen wrapped up his visit to San Francisco yesterday, and he will now take visits to several teams in the upcoming days.

We’ll see what happens on April 25.

    Draft order may matter money wise, but I hope he wins up with a team I can cheer for, has solid play around him, and that has a chance to win a title.

    Being the first chosen doesnt mean you are the best prospect. Never has

      You can cheer for the 49ers. Here are 3 reasons why:

      1. They’re going to make a leap this year, so you can be on the bandwagon before everyone else and that’s always fun.

      2. Shanahan (their HC) runs an exciting offense so the games will always be entertaining.

      3. Kap isn’t their anymore

      I will if he’s on the team, just as I will for Cobb with the Cobb-boys (while I vomit). When the going gets tough….

    Cowboys and Browns fan doesn’t look like he isn’t going to either one of them. I’ll pull for him wherever he ends up at.
