The Giants ended up making three picks on the first night of the 2019 NFL draft, but despite that, oddsmakers aren't viewing any of them as potential game changers in their rookie seasons.
According to BetOnline.ag, quarterback Daniel Jones, the sixth-overall pick, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, the No. 17 selection, and cornerback Deandre Baker, the 30th pick, all received modest odds for their respective Rookie of the Year Awards.
There's a twist in regard to Lawrence and Baker, though. The later-drafted Baker has better odds at the hardware. Baker clocks in with 28/1 odds while Lawrence is at 33/1, which are the same odds that Jones landed for the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
Baker's odds are tied for the best odds among rookie defensive backs. Also receiving 28/1 odds were Cardinals corner Byron Murphy, Colts corner Rock Ya-Sin, Browns corner Greedy Williams, and Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill. All four were second-round picks.
Baker was the second-highest selected defensive back, behind only Raiders safety Jonathan Abram, who received 33/1 odds.
Jones' odds are tied for the 10th best along with Titans' third-round wideout AJ Brown and the Panthers' third-round pick, quarterback Will Grier. The top-overall selection, Cardinals QB Kyler Murray, has the top odds at 8/5. Other QBs with better odds than Jones include Redskins' Dwayne Haskins (No. 15 pick) at 7/1 and Broncos' second-round pick, Drew Lock at 28/1.
Along with the Giants' trio, a pair of Jets' defenders were listed with odds for the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. The Jets made Quinnen Williams the third-overall pick and his odds at earning the league's Defensive Rookie of the Year Award are nearly the same.
Williams has 17/2 odds at landing the honor, which are the fourth-best odds among defensive rookies.
Of those with better odds than Williams, two were selected after him. Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White, the fifth-overall pick, and Jacksonville Jaguars pass rusher Josh Allen, the seventh-overall pick, landed 8/1 and 7/1 odds, respectively. San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, who was the lone defender picked ahead Williams at pick No. 2, has the best odds for the award at 5/1.
Along with Williams, the Jets' third-round pick, pass rusher Jachai Polite, was also listed by BetOnline's oddsmakers, but he's a long shot with a 40/1 chance.
