The 2019 NFL Draft went down as one of the very defense-heavy loopholes in current memory, and consequently a harvest of talented rookie defenders have been set to hit the gridiron. When it has to do with odds on Devin Bush is the straightforward favorite.
The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker is your +500 fave to win the award in BetOnline, with Nick Bosa (+750), Devin White (+800), Quinnen Williams (+1000), Montez Sweat (+1600), Ed Oliver (+1600), Josh Allen (+1600), Clelin Ferrell (+2200), Brian Burns (+2200) and Chase Winovich (+2500) containing the rest of the top 10.
The most important reason Bush is that the DROY front-runner is that the Steelers need for an impact linebacker away. Pittsburghs defense has never been the same as a neck accident was suffered by Ryan Shazier in December 2017, but Bush has the ability to fill that void.
The Michigan item has fantastic foot speed and incredible instincts, and therefore dont be shocked if he puts up some big numbers in his first year with the Steel Curtain.
Up until August, the Bosa of San Francisco has been the favored. However, the sportsbook is obviously concerned about the 21-year-olds health, since it was noted that he suffered asignificant ankle sprain on August 7 and will sit out the rest of the preseason as a result.
Bosa, who had missed the 49ers offseason program with a hamstring injury and sat out most of his final year at Ohio State because of a core muscle trauma, has fought to consistently remain on the area over the last few years.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the group expects Bosa will be prepared for the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but thats far from a promise. For that reason, Im expecting bettors to avoid backing at the 2019 DROY to be won by Bosa — particularly.
For me, White looks like a bet that is solid to market the hardware. The linebacker, who had been selected with the fifth overall pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was the fourth largest defensive player.
Yet Whites ceiling is sky-high, and he is slipping into a Bucs defense thatll give him every opportunity to reach the quarterback with Vita Vea along with Ndamukong Suh clogging up the middle of the area.
Have a look at the full collection of odds of the book. Who do you think will win??against the 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year Award? Have your say in the comment section.
Curious at August 9
