The Houston Texans will be on the clock around 8 p.m. this Thursday to kickoff the 2014 NFL Draft. This has been the most anticipated pick in recent memory even though South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is at the top of almost every list ranking this year's prospects.
The Eagles will be on the clock at No. 22 of the Thursday's first round and we are still seeing reports they could go with a cornerback even though many expects have the Birds taking the top wide receiver on the board with that pick. I am still leaning towards Oregon State's Brandin Cooks as their top pick if he is still available. Do not forget about USC's Marqise Lee, who is another Pac-12 wide receiver that has caught head coach Chip Kelly's eye.
I decided to spend my energy the past few days trying to handicap the opening round in terms of a few prop bets that on BetOnline's current betting board for this year's NFL Draft. The following is a link to an article I wrote with my picks for Doc's Sports.
