Aiden Hutchinson is the shocking new favorite of the New York Jets at Draft Pick No. 4
The 2022 NFL draft is less than 24 hours away. On the eve of the big night, we are seeing a dramatic change in the predictions of what could happen at the top of the first round.
Michigan Edge Rusher Aidan Hutchinson is the first to be selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the entire pre-draft process. However, in the last phase before the draft, its stock is declining dramatically.
According to Draftkings Sportsbook, Hutchinson is now a favorite of the odds-on created by the New York Jets with a fourth overall pick (+350 7:54 p.m. ET – chances are, of course).
Hutchinson is closely followed as a favorite player in the New York-selected Draftkings with a fourth pick:
Florida State EDGE Jermaine Johnson II (+400)
North Carolina State OT Ikem Ekwonu (+400)
Cincinnati CB Ahmed Gardner (+400)
Oregon EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux (+450)
Hutchinson’s projected slip could lead to a drastic shift in consensus expectations as to who will be credited in the first three.
Georgia Edge Rusher Travan Walker has gained a huge following as Jacksonville’s first-choice favorite overall.
Meanwhile, Oregon Edge Rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux is gaining momentum as the preferred option for the Detroit Lions with a second overall pick.
Finally, the Houston Texans could pull a rabbit out of their hats and take on LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. with a third overall pick.
All of this could make Hutchinson’s amazing development available to the Jets at four o’clock.
