Few college football players have amassed the hype that Ohio State junior wideout Marvin Harrison Jr. has over the last three years across Ohio sports betting, thanks to a slew of dazzling catches and the Philadelphia native’s God-given talents on the gridiron. Fresh off consecutive 1,200-yard seasons and a pair of unanimous All-American selections, Harrison on Jan. 11 announced his intention to take his talents to the NFL in 2024, with the 2023 Biletnikoff Award winner surely hearing his name called in the first round of this year’s draft.

More than three months ahead of April’s NFL Draft, Harrison is currently ranked as the best wideout in this year’s class by multiple outlets, with NFL Draft Buzz giving Harrison their No. 1 ranking among all CFB prospects. With that in mind, BetOhio.com broke down which NFL team could land Harrison’s services in the early portion of this year’s draft, with no shortage of teams wanting to get their hands on the surefire star this spring.

BetOhio, home to the best Ohio betting apps, could have the answer after compiling hypothetical odds for Harrison’s next destination of his football career. Below is the latest.

The Favorite to Draft Marvin Harrison Jr: Could MHJ Follow Larry Fitzgerald's Footsteps?

The top team odds-wise to land Harrison in this year’s draft is the Arizona Cardinals, which has the No. 4 pick in the 2024 draft. If Arizona does wind up drafting Harrison, he’d do so exactly 20 years after another surefire Hall of Famer was picked by the franchise: 11-time Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald was also picked fourth overall by the Cardinals in 2004, which sets the stage for what could be the second-coming of a franchise-altering talent at the wideout position.

With quarterback Kyler Murray showing signs of his previous self after missing most of the year with an ACL tear and the Cardinals pulling off a 35-31 upset win over the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in Week 17, there’s reason for hope in the Valley, especially if Arizona’s able to land a player of Harrison’s caliber in the draft.

Right now, what we do know is that each of the 32 NFL franchises would likely love to land Harrison in the 2024 NFL Draft, with only one club being lucky enough to add the defending Biletnikoff Award winner to their roster in the new year.

Odds of Marvin Harrison Jr. as No. 1 Overall Draft Pick

USC quarterback Caleb Williams is the long favorite to be drafted first overall by the Chicago Bears, though there's at least a chance that Chicago decides to stick with QB Justin Fields and get him some receiver help.

Here are the top favorites to go No. 1 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft, via FanDuel Ohio:

PlayerPercentage ChanceOdds
USC QB Caleb Williams92.3%-1200
UNC QB Drake Maye10%+900
Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr.5.9%+1600
LSU QB Jayden Daniels3.23%+3000

The last wide receiver to go No. 1 overall was USC WR Keyshawn Johnson, who went to the New York Jets in 1996. The fact that it was almost 30 years ago shows you just how often a WR goes first overall. However, if anyone was to do it again, it would be MHJ.

Odds of Marvin Harrison Jr. as First Non-QB Selected

While Harrison's odds to go No. 1 overall over Williams are slim, he is the long favorite to be the first non-quarterback to come off the board.

Below are odds for the first non-QB selected in the 2024 NFL Draft, via DraftKings Ohio:

PlayerPercentage ChanceOdds
Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr.80%-400
Florida State DE Jared Verse16.7%+500
Penn State OT Olumuyiwa Fashanu13.3%+650
Notre Dame OT Joe Alt10%+900

Outside of QBs, the most common positions to come off the board first are receivers and defensive players. That's why it's no surprise that Harrison is the favorite, followed by Florida State defensive lineman Jared Verse. Several squads are needy of a good left tackle as well, and the top OT options this year are worthy candidates to go in the top five.
