No.1 Draft pick Caleb Williams 11/4 to be named 2024/25 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

Chicago Bears made Caleb Williams the first pick of the 2024 NFL Draft and the quarterback is priced at 11/4 to be named Offensive Rookie of the Year for the 2024/25 NFL season.

The 2022 Heisman Trophy winner, who has been hailed as one of the most accomplished college prospects in recent years, joins a Chicago team that have finished bottom of the NFC North in two consecutive seasons and are without a play-off win since 2010.

Williams was one of two first round picks for Chicago, with general manager Ryan Poles opting to sign talented wide receiver Rome Odunze with the ninth pick of the Draft.

Odunze's capture bolsters a reinvigorated Bears offence that now features running back D'Andre Swift, veteran receiver Keenan Allen and tight end Gerald Everett.

The 21-year-old, who stated himself and Williams "can do amazing things", is 10/1 to claim the Offensive Rookie award.

It was a history-making night in Detroit as no defensive players were taken in the top 10 for the first time in the NFL Draft, with the first 14 picks all being offensive players.

Two more quarterbacks went at two and three with LSU's Jayden Daniels joining the Washington Commanders and North Carolina's Drake Maye heading to the New England Patriots.

Daniels is priced at 9/1 to be the Offensive Rookie of the Year while Maye, who is hoped to signal the start of a new era at Foxborough, is 11/1 in the market.

Second favourite in the betting at 6/1 is Marvin Harrison Jr, who was selected by Arizona Cardinals with the fourth pick of the Draft.

The son of Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison Sr, the Ohio State wide receiver has drawn comparisons to Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald and will be a new ally for quarterback Kyler Murray.

At 15/2 is Malik Nabers after the LSU wideout was picked by the New York Giants, though his productivity is likely to hinge on the quarterback situation at the MetLife Stadium.
