2020 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Odds

NFL Rookie of the Year Odds from Las Vegas

Did two high-impact rookies slip a little too far in April’s draft? Oddsmakers think they will have a big impact on the 2020 season. William Hill has just released their NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year odds, and Buffalo’s AJ Epenesa (Pick No. 54) and Baltimore’s Patrick Queen (Pick No. 28) are two of the top four choices on the board. Washington’s Chase Young is the +350 favorite, followed by Arizona’s Isiah Simmons (+800), Epenesa (+1400) and Queen (+1400).

Interior defensive linemen have had some recent success with this award. Ndamukong Suh was Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2010. Aaron Donald and Sheldon Richardson went back-to-back in 2014-2015. There are a trio of Dallas Cowboys at 50-to-1 or greater that I have my eye on. Dallas is the favorite to win the NFC East, so they are likely heading to a good team and the Cowboys always receive plenty of national attention. Dallas’ defense was not very good last year, so all three of them should get a pretty fair shot at earning early playing time. Any impact that they are able to make will be looked upon favorably. How ’bout a +5000 shot on Neville Gallimore?
