It excludes Michigan Wolverines edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson (who is -170 to be the first pick of the draft). Here are the odds for everyone else to go inside the top five of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Travon Walker -700
Ikem Ekwonu -250
Kayvon Thibodeaux -160

Jermaine Johnson +350
Malik Willis +400
Kyle Hamilton +400
Garrett Wilson +700

Jameson Williams +2000
Derek Stingley Jr. +2000
Jordan Davis +3000
Treylon Burks +3000
Chris Olave +5000
