There has been a major change in the betting odds regarding the No. 2 overall pick in next week’s NFL Draft.

The Washington Commanders are set to pick second in the draft. The Chicago Bears are widely expected to select Caleb Williams No. 1 overall, which would leave the Commanders with their choice of every remaining player.

Jayden Daniels had been pretty strongly favored to go second overall, but there has been a big change in the odds surrounding him and Drake Maye. Daniels is now just a slight favorite to be picked second. The odds on Maye going second are nearly even money.

Daniels and Maye are among the top quarterback prospects in the draft. Other quarterbacks widely regarded as potential first-round picks include J.J. McCarthy, Michael Penix Jr. and possibly Bo Nix.

This development with the betting odds comes as a surprise considering the first round of the draft is only six days away.

After the Bears at No. 1 and Commanders at No. 2, the New England Patriots are scheduled to pick third. They may be looking to trade back in the draft. The Arizona Cardinals may also be looking to trade down from the fourth spot.
