Earlier in the week, we covered our top props for the 2022 NFL Draft. In that article, we focused mainly on the first round, but the fun doesn’t have to stop after Thursday’s wild night.
Below, we’ll walk you through some of our favorite prop bets for second and third-round action on Friday night.
First RB Drafted
This one seems like a lock as many people are assuming Hall will be the fourth pick of the second round and go to the Texans. Given the odds aren’t great here, this would be a bet we’d take in a parlay with one of two other picks you consider to be a lock – like Trey McBride being the first TE off the board.
Second RB Drafted
With Breece Hall as the odds-on favorite to be the first RB off of the board, Kenneth Walker III sees the best odds to be the second back taken. However, Dane Brugler from The Athletic dos have Walker III ranked over Hall on his big board, so there is an argument to taking a bet on Hall here in case somebody shares Brugler’s opinion. Otherwise, it’s very likely to be Walker.

Second QB Drafted
The Pick: Desmond Ridder (+400) This is a bit out of left-field, but there are a few people connecting the dots between Tennessee at the top of the 2nd round on Ridder. Since Tennessee doesn’t need a quarterback right now, they can take one that they feel best fits their scheme. Ridder has immense athletic upside and Mike Vrabel has a relationship with Cincinnati Bearcats coach Luke Fickell, so he has all the information he could possibly want on Ridder.
Third QB Drafted
Most people will assume this pick will be Desmond Ridder, but I think Sam Howell (+550) is a dark-horse candidate. If he had come out of college after his last season, he likely would have been a lottery pick. Even if that might have been a reach for him, he has a lot of good tape out there and a lot of people who believe in the raw skills. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of those teams makes a move to get him in the second round on Friday night.
You could also choose to throw money down on Malik Willis (+950) if Desmond Ridder really is second off the board then Willis would be a logical choice to then go third.
Second Tight End Drafted
Trey McBride being the first tight end off of the board seems like a lock based on what we’ve been reading in mock drafts and from NFL beat writers. He was essentially the leading receiver for Colorado State and would seem to fit the mold of the new-age NFL tight end. If you can still get plus odds on this selection, it could be a solid bet.
