There was so much NFL Draft information out there pertaining to which teams made out the best after each round.  But in the end, bookies are concerned about only one thing: How will the 2018 NFL Draft selections affect them and their bottom line?

Our friends at PricePerPlayer.com broke it down into three teams that will play a pivotal role for the books.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS TO LIKELY CONTINUE THEIR WINNING WAYS

Ben Roethlisberger isn't getting any younger.  The Steelers needed a quarterback pick and they needed one now.

In an unexpected move, the Steelers did not pick (Mason) Rudolph, the QB from Oklahoma State until the third round.  Furthermore, the Steelers needing a QB to start training under Roethlisberger and Rudolph was the perfect fit.

All the bookmakers apparently expected Pittsburgh to select Rudolph in the first round.

THE CLEVELAND BROWNS MAY NO LONGER BE BOTTOM FEEDERS

Most of the Pay Per Head providers offering NFL wins totals had Cleveland winning no more than 5 regular season games, with the UNDER the favorite.

They could actually end up winning more than that after exercising some solid Draft judgement last week.

This year marks John Dorsey first draft as the Browns’ General Manager and he certainly stuck to his game plan. The Cleveland Browns are a team that is in desperate need of leadership and a new look for its franchise.  They did this by picking Baker Mayfield who could potentially change the dynamic of the team.

In addition, the next big name Dorsey chose for the team is Denzel Ward, the top cornerback this year. Obviously, not everyone feels that this was the right move for the Browns because of a few controversies. However, many speculators agree that not adding Nick Chubb to their roster was a mistake.

NEW YORK GIANTS STICKING TO THEIR GUNS

The word on the street was that the Giants were looking to add another quarterback to their team roster.  The decision changed once the Browns too Mayfield under their wing leaving the Giants with some tough options. In addition, the Giants were committed to Eli Manning for a few more seasons and needed another franchise QB.  At the last minute, GM Dave Gettleman made their pick and chose to go with running back Saquon Barkley.
