With the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft now officially over, thirty-two football fantasies have come true for the exceptional young men who were picked and (hopefully) for the teams who selected them.

However, there are also five extraordinary athletes who were predicted by many mock drafts to go in the first round who still remain in the greenroom, stunned, slightly embarrassed at having been passed over and now anxiously awaiting to hear their names called out in round two.

Here we briefly go over the results of the first round, including some of the prop bets that were settled, and then we take a look at the odds and predictions of who of those five players in waiting will be the last to be drafted from the 2019 NFL Draft greenroom.

2019 NFL Draft First Round Results

Here are all 32 picks of the first round, including any related prop bet results.

The first three actual picks went exactly how most mock drafts called it (including ours, check it out here: 2019 NFL Mock Draft – Full Team Breakdown), but after that, things went a little less predictable.

Congratulations to every one of these impressive young men, but keep in mind that just because a player has been drafted doesn’t mean he automatically makes the team’s roster, though with first rounders they typically do.

Pick 1: Arizona Cardinals select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray

Now the Cardinals have to figure out what to do with last year’s first-round selection, quarterback Josh Rosen.

Prop Bet Winners – First Overall Pick (-715) and First QB (-1250)

Pick 2: San Francisco 49ers select Ohio State EDGE Nick Bosa

Joins newly acquired defensive end Dee Ford to create a nightmare attack against opposing quarterbacks.

Prop Bet Winner – First Defensive Lineman Drafted (-200)

Pick 3: New York Jets select Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams

With defensive ends Leonard Williams and Henry Anderson by his side, nose tackle Williams is going to help create defensive havoc.

Pick 4: Oakland Raiders select Clemson EDGE Clelin Ferrell

This pick was not expected, but Ferrell will rush quarterbacks now with newly acquired defensive end Benson Mayowa and prove he was worthy of being selected fourth overall.

Pick 5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers select LSU linebacker Devin White

The Bucs are revamping their linebacker room, adding White and two other free agents, Shaquil Barrett, and Deone Bucannon, to create quite the midfield force.

Prop Bet Winner: First Linebacker Selected (-590)

Pick 6: New York Giants select Duke quarterback Daniel Jones

At last, the heir apparent to Eli Manning has been chosen, but there’s no telling how long that transition will take.

Pick 7: Jacksonville Jaguars select Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen

A big score for a midfield that already includes Myles Jack and Telvin Smith.

Pick 8: Detroit Lions Select Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson

A big tight end with soft hands who has even been compared to (gasp) Gronk, Hockenson gives quarterback Matthew Stafford a wonderful new target.

Prop Bet Winner: First Tight End Chosen (-230)

Pick 9: Buffalo Bills select Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver

Oliver provides young pass rushing help on a team that is being transformed by free agents.

Pick 10: Pittsburgh Steelers select Michigan linebacker Devin Bush

The Steelers traded up to grab Bush, a young player who can possibly take over play calling the defense where Ryan Shazier sadly left off.

Pick 11: Cincinnati Bengals select Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams

The Bengals brought in Williams to help All-Rookie center Billy Price and company better protect quarterback Andy Dalton.

Prop Bet Winner: First Offensive Lineman selected (+250)

Pick 12: Green Bay Packers select Michigan EDGE Rashan Gary

If his shoulder isn’t a problem – possible surgery necessary – Gary provides athletic pass rushing help.

Pick 13: Miami Dolphins select Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins

A terrific pick, Wilkins is predicted by many to be an NFL star.

Pick 14: Atlanta Falcons select Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom

Quarterback Matt Ryan needs protecting, Lindstrom provides that in the interior.

Pick 15: Washington Redskins select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins

Now the Redskins have someone besides Case Keenum and Colt McCoy to fill in for still injured Alex Smith.

Pick 16: Carolina Panthers select Florida State EDGE Brian Burns

Burns is fast like his name, and the Panthers could use his speed.

Pick 17: New York Giants select Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence

Lawrence fills the Giants’ need for a big guy on the defensive line, something general manager David Gettleman was hunting for.

Pick 18: Minnesota Vikings select North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury

The Vikings are hoping the athletic Bradbury can help the line push bodies around, despite his lack of size.

Pick 19: Tennessee Titans select Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons

Despite injuring his ACL while training for the draft and possibly having to sit out his rookie season rehabbing from surgery, the Titans saw Simmons as worth it.

Pick 20: Denver Broncos select Iowa tight end Noah Fant

The Broncos could have addressed their quarterback needs here, but instead chose to give quarterback Joe Flacco a nice new target.

Pick 21: Green Bay Packers select Maryland safety Darnell Savage

The Packers desperately needed safety help and Savage provides young legs that can cover a lot of ground.

Pick 22: Philadelphia Eagles select Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard

The Eagles needed a good pass protector and they got one in Dillard.

Pick 23: Houston Texans select Alabama State offensive tackle, Tytus Howard

Some argue there were better selections available at this pick, but the Texans are getting a solid addition to their O-line in Howard.

Pick 24: Oakland Raiders select Alabama running back, Josh Jacobs

The Raiders continue to clean up in this draft and get a solid runner in Jacobs.

Prop bet winner: First Running Back Selected (-500)

Pick 25: Baltimore Ravens select Oklahoma wide receiver, Marquise Brown

Some were surprised that the Ravens chose Brown over D.K. Metcalf, but they still got a big winner here.

Prop Bet Winner: First Wide Receiver Selected (+350)

Pick 26: Washington Redskins select Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat

Despite concerns about his heart, the Redskins chose a playmaker in Sweat whose pure speed is incredible to watch.

Pick 27: Oakland Raiders select Mississippi State safety Jonathan, Abram

The Raiders are doing what they needed to do, which was build up their defense, and Abram helps solidify their secondary.

Pick 28: San Diego Chargers select Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery

The Chargers were a bit weak on the d-line and adding Tillery fixes that by adding toughness and youth.

Pick 29: Seattle Seahawks select TCU EDGE L.J. Collier

Collier joins recently acquired defensive end, Cassius Marsh, to form a well-needed quarterback hunting duel that should be very effective.

Pick 30: New York Giants select Georgia cornerback Deandre Baker

Wow, add Baker to cornerback Janoris Jenkins and newly acquired safeties Jabrill Peppers and Antoine Bethea and suddenly the Giants are scary to throw against.

Prop Bet Winner: First DB selected (+350)

Pick 31: Atlanta Falcons select Washington offensive lineman Kaleb McGary

The Falcons needed a right tackle and McGary gives them that, as long as he can get in there and start right away.

Pick 32: New England Patriots select Arizona State wide receiver, N’Keal Harry

Though the Patriots needed more of a speed burning receiver they chose Harry – but it’s Bill Belichick and Tom Brady so somehow they’ll figure out how to best use Harry.

What are the postseason odds and predictions for the last player drafted from the 2019 NFL Draft greenroom?

Imagine being one of the half a dozen or so players whom the football world was convinced would be first-round selections but who had to sit through thirty-two names being called without once hearing their own.

There is obviously no shame in being drafted into the NFL regardless of the round, but there is some extra prestige that automatically comes from being a first rounder.

For those football gamblers with a bit of a dark sense of humor and a few extra coins in your gambling kitty, we give you a prop bet that attempts to predict the odds of which of these five first-round sliders will be the last to be picked.

Here are the current odds listed for the last player drafted from the 2019 NFL Draft Greenroom:

Sportsbook Cody Ford Link
888Sport NJ +175

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

This Oklahoma Sooner offensive lineman was predicted to go in the first round but four offensive tackles, one guard and a center were selected before him so now somebody (probably the Arizona Cardinals who have pick 33 and need O-linemen) will get quite the steal.

Sportsbook D.K. Metcalf Link
888Sport NJ +175

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Metcalf, the Ole Miss wide receiver, is one of those perfect physical outliers who is huge and incredibly fast, perhaps passed over in the first round because of his tendency to lose concentration and drop balls.

Sportsbook Greedy Williams Link
888Sport NJ +250

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Any team that needs help in their secondary will be lucky to grab Williams, the LSU cornerback whom everyone was certain would be snagged already, but with only one cornerback taken in the first round (Georgia’s Deandre Baker, pick 30), there were apparently other needs more pressing.

Sportsbook Jawaan Taylor Link
888Sport NJ +300

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

A healthy Taylor was predicted to be at least a top twenty selection, but there is apparently a big red flag on the knee he recently hurt during a workout, so it will be up to a team to trust that he can rehab his injury and get a handle on his weight, which some say has also contributed to his slide out of the first round.

Sportsbook Drew Lock Link
888Sport NJ +800

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

The quarterback from Missouri has four years of SEC experience and he can certainly hurl the ball, but only three quarterbacks were taken in the first round (#1 Kyler Murray, #6 Daniel Jones, #15  Dwayne Haskins) so the talented Lock will most likely be the first one chosen in the second round.
