NFL Betting – Stetson Bennett NFL Draft Props

By Phil Simon

There are so many NFL betting props to choose from I’ve been writing articles on the subject for two weeks now and still I’m not close to running out of content. We covered some of the basics and the more popular props in earlier articles like who gets taken with the first overall pick. And we touched on some of the skill positions like quarterbacks. It’s a given that either Bryce Young or C.J. Stroud will be selected by Carolina with the No. 1 pick. We witnessed the volatility of the market with Young the early favorite only to be passed by Stroud. The market has leveled out with Young back as the favorite.


While those two battle to see who gets taken first overall, there’s another QB getting plenty of attention as the 2023 NFL Draft approaches. Leading the Georgia Bulldogs to consecutive national championships should garner Stetson Bennett first round interest. However, being a product of the system has taken some of his draft value. Off field transgressions and a strong class of quarterbacks dropped him down the draft board. Still, he’s the only player on the board with NFL odds in every round of where he’ll be drafted.

Quarterbacks are always a hot commodity with NFL teams looking to change their fortunes with the addition of a franchise player. We don’t often see a Tom Brady sneak through the draft. Taken in the sixth round in 2000, Brady is arguably the best to ever play the position winning seven Super Bowls and five Super Bowl MVP awards. The question is could Bennett become the next Tom Brady?



In What Round Will Stetson Bennett be Drafted?


First Round +3300


Second Round +1600


Third Round +800


Fourth Round +550


Fifth Round +500


Sixth Round +400


Seventh Round +400


Not Drafted +160


Odds suggest Bennett won’t even be drafted, which is an assessment of several NFL executives, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Recent off field issues overshadowed the good he did on the field leading Georgia to back-to-back national championships. There are other things that stand out as well. He’s 26 years old putting him in the veteran category and teams are unlikely to risk a high pick for someone with less time remaining in his NFL career. And by no means is he a physical specimen at 5-11 and a touch over 190 pounds when measured at the combine.


Still, you can’t argue with the numbers, and it would be unfair to use the program against him when Young and Stroud also played on loaded squads and didn’t win consecutive national championships. Taking over for injured J.T. Daniels in 2021, Bennett completed 64.5 percent of his throws for 2,862 yards and 29 touchdowns against only seven interceptions. He was named Offensive MVP in both CFP games. Starting all 15 games last season, Bennett threw for over 4,100 yards with 27 TDs completing 68.3 percent of his throws. The Dawgs ranked seventh nationally in total offense and 11th in scoring with 39.2 points per game.


Bennett didn’t help his cause getting busted for public intoxication in January and, according to another NFL executive, struggling in the pre-draft interview process. A strong QB class also puts him lower on the radar of teams. This is why I mentioned Brady earlier. The GOAT wasn’t an impressive physical figure and his numbers at Michigan paled in comparison. I’m not saying Bennett will turn out like Brady or even have a NFL career, but he’s done a lot of good things and a team could grab a gem late in the draft.
