Our friends over at DraftKings SportsBook are sponsoring this post, and they have Iowa State running back Breece Hall (-250) as the heavy favorite to be the first running back off the board. He’s been mocked to the Bills by several national prognosticators over the last few days. Because Buffalo picks so far down the order, they haven’t posted odds on who the Bills will actually select.
