    The NFL Draft is over and with players joining their new teams we look at a few prop bets. Plus updated odds to win 2015 Super Bowl XLIX. Odds courtesy of

    With the NFL Draft now in the books, we look at prop bets involving some of the biggest names and surprises in this year's draft class. Plus, updated Super Bowl XLIX odds.

    Will Michael Sam be on the Rams 53 man roster for Game 1 of the 2014 Season? Yes: 2/1

    Why Yes: Sam is a former SEC Defensive Player of the Year and will join one of the best defensive lines in the league. Sam can make the team as a situational pass rusher, which will highlight his strengths as a player.

    Why No: The Rams' defensive line is stacked and Sam was just the 11th best pass rusher in our rankings.

    Will Jadeveon Clowney win the 2014 Defensive Rookie of the Year? Yes: 2/1

    Why Yes: Clowney will be playing with J.J. Watt, the best defensive player in the league. How do you double-team both players?

    Why No: Only 31 rookies have managed double-digit sack seasons in the 32 years since the sack became an official stat. It'll be difficult for Clowney to meet the expectations (double digit sack total) that come with being selected No. 1 overall.

    Johnny Manziel – Total games started in the 2014 Regular Season: Over/Under 9.5.

    Why Yes: Manziel is a first round pick and the Browns have a stable of underperforming passers (Hoyer, Tanney, and Thigpen) on the roster. Plus, there will be a lot of pressure on the Browns to start Manziel, who already has the best-selling jersey on

    Why No:

    Khalil Mack – Total sacks in the 2014 Regular Season: Over/Under 8.

    Why Yes: Mack's sack total increased every year at Buffalo, meeting or exceeding the eight sack total in his junior and senior year.

    Why No: There were 39 players in the NFL last year that totaled eight or more sacks. Only one rookie, Ezekiel Ansah, was in that group.

    Who will start more games in the 2014 Regular Season – Teddy Bridgewater/Blake Bortles?

    Why Bridgewater: The Louisville product is the favorite at -150, the odds imply that Bridgewater has a 60 percent chance of playing more games than Bortles.

    Why Bortles: Even with Chad Henne on the roster, Bortles has a clear path to becoming the starter as teams do not often take a player with the third overall pick to warm the bench.

    Post-draft Super Bowl Odds
