Georgia’s George Pickens Favorite to be Next WR in 2022 NFL Draft



Georgia WR Georg Pickens

Six wide receivers were selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, and oddsmakers do not believe it will take long for the seventh to be taken in Friday’s second round, as former Georgia wide receiver George Pickens is the favorite to be the next wide receiver off the board at 7/5, courtesy of BetOnline.

A three-year starter for the Bulldogs, Pickens caught 90 passes for 1,347 yards and 14 touchdowns over his Georgia career. He missed nearly three fourths of the 2021 season after suffering a torn ACL in spring practice. Pickens has an over/under pick slot of 44.5.

Former North Dakota State star Christian Watson has the second-best odds to be the next wideout selected at 3/2. Standing at 6-foot-4 and 208 pounds, Watson ran a blazing 4.36 40-yard dash in the lead up to the draft.

Pittsburgh native and former Western Michigan standout Skyy Moore owns the third-shortest odds at 11/5. Moore exploded onto the scene in 2021 with 95 receptions for 1,292 yards and ten touchdowns. Moore has an over/under pick slot of 41.5.
