The Big Ten Conference appears likely to have the No. 1 overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft with Michigan Wolverines edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson. Outside of him, plenty of players from inside the conference are expected to hear their names called in Thursday’s first round.
Oddsmakers set the over/under for Big Ten first round picks at 6.5 as we get closer to Day 1 of the draft.
Over 6.5 (-120)
Under 6.5 (-110)
Hutchinson and Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver Garrett Wilson are highly likely to land inside the top 20, but the Big Ten appears to have plenty of players selected in the 20s and 30s. Without enough sure-fire first round picks, there’s a chance one or two players in the conference could slip out of the first round. Let’s go with the under 6.5 with -110 odds on draft night.
