With the 2013 college football season officially over–except for some coaching changes–much of the focus has shifted to May’s draft where Jadeveon Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater are the favorites to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft, according to Bovada.
Odds from @BovadaLV on the No. 1 pick: Teddy Bridgewater 2/3, Jadeveon Clowney 3/2, anybody else 6/1. O/U on JFF draft position is 4.5

Bridgewater is considered the consensus top quarterback and with the Houston Texans owning the top pick and in need of a quarterback that could make some sense. Especially considering recently hired Bill O’Brien has a knack for developing quarterbacks.
Clowney ended his sophomore season with speculation he would be the top pick in the 2013 draft if he was eligible, but finished his junior season with questions about his character and concerns over some nagging injuries and finished with only three sacks this season.
Johnny Manziel who officially declared for the draft on Wednesday presents an interesting over/under bet with so many teams at the top of the draft needing a quarterback, including the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns who pick third and fourth.
