Who Will be Drafted as the Number 8 Pick: 2012 NFL Draft Odds
BetOnline was offering odds on who will be drafted as the number 8 pick for the 2012 NFL Draft this coming weekend. BetOnline had plenty more NFL Draft odds available right here.
Ryan Tannehill was listed as the -205 favorite. His stock has risen over the past month. This Texas A&M standout
From SB Nation:
The Dolphins love Ryan Tannehill for his potential but are aware he's a project. They are willing to take him at No. 8. They are not going to trade up to get him because they don't strongly believe anyone is going to get ahead of them to pick him.
Michael Floyd was coming in at +165.
Floyd has been linked to the Jets for several weeks, but the Floyd/Jets buzz has gained momentum in recent days. Everybody knows they need a wide receiver, and Floyd has impressive credentials. The primary concern with him is an off-the-field issue -- three alcohol-related arrests in college.
Floyd, speaking Wednesday at an NFL Play 60 Youth Football event in Manhattan, said he was grilled by the Jets during a recent visit to the team's facility. He met with owner Woody Johnson, GM Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan.
"They basically said, 'Is it over? Did you learn your lesson?'" Floyd said. "It was stuff like that -- and I have (learned my lesson). I'm moving forward from that and trying to be excited for this time in my life."
Riley Reiff was at +460.
Melvin Ingram was at 8/1 or +800.
