For years now online gambling sites have enjoyed some degree of wagering action on the NFL Draft and Vegas appears to have taken notice.

William Hill, with over 100 sports books in and around Las Vegas, has begun taking money on some of the 17 proposition bets that Nevada gambling regulators have approved on the draft.  This will exclude which player is selected number one overall, though such odds can still be found online.

Acceptable bets found in Vegas include the number of players drafted from a particular college.

Here is a sampling of the early 2017 NFL Draft odds being offered online:

#1 Pick Will Be?
Offensive player +275
Defensive player -375

1st Running Back Selected

Dalvin Cook +400
Christian McCaffrey +1200
D'Onta Foreman +3300
