Arizona State receiver Brandon Aiyuk is going to make some good money. He’s expected to be drafted in the first few rounds of the NFL Draft this April after a quick senior-year rise with the Sun Devils.

He can also make fans some money.

BetOnline.com has a few wagers that bettors can make on Aiyuk and other top prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. One simply puts a line on whether he’ll be drafted in the first 32 picks.

Will Brandon Aiyuk be a 1st Round Pick?

Yes      +175     (7/4)

No        -250     (2/5)

According to Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy, many NFL scouts were grading the ASU product higher than they did former Sun Devil teammate N’Keal Harry heading into the 2019 draft.

Harry went at the end of the first round to the New England Patriots.

But even if Aiyuk is indeed a higher-rated prospect, this draft class includes a deep receiver field. Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb, plus Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III are the likely options to go off the board first from their position group.

It appears Aiyuk is in the next tier of wideouts. He’s among a group of four who will be drafted after the top three, according to BetOnline.com oddsmakers.

Highest Drafted Wide Receiver

Justin Jefferson – 10/13
Tee Higgins – 9/5
Denzel Mims – 6/1
Brandon Aiyuk – 13/2

Aiyuk recorded 1,192 yards and 18.3 yards per catch last year.

He came in at 5-foot-11 and 3/4 inches, 201 pounds and with an impressive wingspan of 6-foot-9 at the Senior Bowl.

At the NFL Draft Combine, he ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash and recorded a 40-inch vertical and 128-inch broad jump.
