The National Football League is so big it supersedes the coronavirus pandemic. After nearly every other sports league around the globe cancelled or postponed games, seasons and events, the NFL is sticking to its original plan. The 2020 NFL Draft will take place April 23-25 – for now – though the setup will be modified. And with the draft comes a plethora of propositional bets, which are a bonus to the betting public that’s been sports-starved for nearly a month.

In addition to the obvious wagers like who gets drafted first overall or who will be the first defensive player selected, BookMaker.eu offers prop bets on what round certain players will be drafted. Jalen Hurts is part of a deep class of quarterbacks available, though the number is smaller than the 2018 Draft. After a stellar collegiate career, Hurts is sure to get a looksy since there are never enough quarterbacks. Let’s examine in which round Hurts is likely to get drafted.

What Round of the NFL Draft will Jalen Hurts be Selected?

Round 3 +115
Round 2 +160
Rounds 4-7 +300
Round 1 +1200

In any other year Hurts looks a lot better on the draft board. As they say timing is everything and Hurts’ timing stinks. Not only is he among a strong group of quarterbacks, the overall talent level in the 2020 Draft appears to be deeper than most recent drafts. The one negative for Hurts is the situation for most teams. The few that desire a signal-caller are at the top of the board and Hurts doesn’t match up with Joe Burrow, who is the consensus No. 1.

Most sportsbooks agree that Cincinnati will take Burrow with the top pick that a prop for the No. 1 overall selection has been taken off their board. The demand among the first 32 picks just isn’t there that’s why the payout is large if Hurts happens to go in the first round.

Round 3 ( +115 )

There is no denying Hurts is a gifted athlete. Take a look at his college stats and the number of games he played to formulate an argument for him being taken higher. However, playing for strong programs at Alabama and Oklahoma helped his resume. There are questions regarding his ability to transfer his skill set to the next level.

The team that invests in Hurts will do so for the future. He’s not your prototypical NFL quarterback right now and he can be developed at the next level. Players like that aren’t going to be selected in the first round and maybe not the second. But then again nobody thought Lamar Jackson wasn’t going to excel in the NFL as quickly as he did, so there’s always a chance he goes higher. I’m just not willing to bet on it.

Round 2 ( +160 )

As of this writing there were still several proven free agent quarterbacks still on the open market. And how the chips fall leading up to the draft will determine where Hurts gets selected. Cam Newton, Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton are the names without a team. None of those players are ready to be a backup, but their final landing spot changes the landscape of a team depth chart.

One team that makes sense in this round is Tampa Bay. Recently signed Tom Brady will be 43 in August, and is there a better mentor than the GOAT? Heck, Jimmy Garoppolo cashed in on being Brady’s understudy and directed the Niners to the Super Bowl last season.

Rounds 4-7 ( +300 )

It isn’t likely that Hurts falls this low, but given the glut of quarterbacks in the league and what teams are looking for you never know. Most mock drafts to this point have Hurts going in the second or third frame, which is why those are the favored rounds. Toss in 10 compensatory picks at the end of Round 3 and his draft positioning gets a boost. Burrow, Tua and Justin Herbert are the consensus top-three. Along with Hurts you have Jordan Love, Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason and Anthony Gordon at the next tier. And it’s possible Hurts is the seventh QB drafted dropping him into the fourth round. Since Hurts isn’t going in the first round, this wager has the best value.

Round 1 ( +1200 )

It looks like Burrow is a lock for the Bengals at No. 1 overall. The Dolphins and Chargers have been linked to Tua and Herbert, and after that the position isn’t high on the list of the other teams. Taking Hurts in this round is a huge risk for any club and anyone placing a wager. The payout is nice, but don’t be fooled. Hurts isn’t going in the first round so don’t waste your money.
