Super Bowl prop bets are old hat by now. You can bet on anything from the coin toss to how long it will take the performer to sing the National Anthem to which team has more penalty yards.As of now, there is no place where you can place prop bets on what will take place in the leagues other super-hyped prime time extravaganza, the NFL draft. However, that did not prevent my friend Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post from dreaming some up. Dont be surprised if such lines show up someday in your favorite brick and mortar or online gambling establishment.Here are a few of Joes imaginary draft prop bets, truly for entertainment purposes only:Overunder on Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehills draft position: 4.5Which player will be drafted first, Trent Richardson or Morris Claiborne (Claiborne is a slight favorite)Overunder on how many SEC players will be drafted in the first round: 10.5Which position will have more player drafted in the first round, wide receiver or defensive back. (WR is favored by one)
