    By John Ewing

    The NFL Draft begins Thursday and with all things NFL there are prop bets. Below we look at some of the more entertaining prop bets available to wager.

    There is no Andrew Luck or RG3 in this year’s draft. While the lack of skill position talent may have some fans disappointed there is plenty of depth in the trenches and across the board. For all of our in depth draft analysis click here.

    Player Props:

    Draft Position - Geno Smith: Over/Under 8.5

    Why it will go under: Accurate passer with strong arm that can make plays with his feet.

    Why it will go over: Runs a spread offense almost exclusively from the shotgun, needs work under center. Has difficulty reading defenses and blitz packages.

    Draft Position - Tyrann Mathieu: Over/Under 75.5

    Why it will go under: Ball hawk with additional value as a punt returner.

    Why it will go over: Undersized and history of off-field issues.

    Draft Position - Matt Barkley: Over/Under 37.5

    Why it will go under: Experienced running a pro-style system and can make adjustments at the line.

    Why it will go over: Does not have a plus arm and lacks the athletic ability to carry a team.

    Draft Position - Marcus Lattimore: Over/Under 84.5

    Why it will go under: Power, balance, and vision equals first round talent.

    Why it will go over: Injury concerns, back-to-back seasons with knee injuries including last year's devastating injury that tore all three ligaments in his right knee.

    Draft Position - Manti Te'o: Over/Under 25.5

    Why it will go under: Received praise for character and leadership (prior to girlfriend hoax), aggressive middle linebacker that makes quick decisions.

    Why it will go over: Poor speed to the edges and concerns about getting off of blocks (see Alabama game).

    Positional Props:

    How many QB's will be selected in the 1st Rd? Over/Under 1.5        

    Why it will go under: There are no transcendent players at the position in this year’s draft, team's needs could trump gambling on a quarterback.

    Why it will go over: Quarterback is the most important position in the NFL and there are many teams still looking for a franchise signal caller.

    How many WR's will be selected in the 1st Rd? Over/Under 3          

    Why it will go under: There is depth at wide receiver but not too many with first round talent.

    Why it will go over: To win in the NFL you have to be able to move the ball through the air, not only do you need a QB but you also need talented wide receivers.
