( News Wire) - Caleb Williams is the consensus favorite to take home the Heisman next season and ultimately be selected No. 1 overall in the next draft, but could we see a pedigreed wide receiver defy the odds?


Following last week's NFL Draft, odds for the top pick next year were released, and early action has flooded in on Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr. opened Williams as massive, -500 favorite yesterday to be drafted first, but his odds have moved to -400 as of this morning.

Harrison Jr., who was installed with +1600 (16-1) odds, now has +1000 (10-1) odds to be the first receiver taken No. 1 in the draft since Keyshawn Johnson in 1996.

No one else's odds have changed.

Harrison Jr. has also seen support in the Heisman odds, where his chances have gone from 50-1 back in January to 20-1, currently.

Tyler Buchner, who recently transferred from Notre Dame to Alabama, is also moving up the Heisman board. With a real possibility of being the starting quarterback on one of the nation’s best teams, Buchner is now listed at 25-1.
