The standard thought is that NFL oddsmakers know what their doing when they set odds recipes and their track record, of course, is pretty dang impressive.
Currently, the lowest (best) odds are priced at quarterback at +175. Cornerback is the next lowest position at +225, followed by offensive line and defensive line (+400), wide receiver (+1500), running back and linebacker (+3000), tight end (+4000), safety (+7500) and specialist (+20000).
Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said the team can go anywhere with the first pick, including quarterback even though they just signed starter Jimmy Garoppolo. I currently think the pick is going to be a cornerback, but I like the value at the defensive line.
