Stud USC football receiver Drake London is arguably the best wide receiver in the entire NFL Draft this year. London won Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year last year despite getting hurt and out for the season in the eighth game of the year. He was that dominant.

While there isn't yet a consensus on which exact pick he will be in this year's NFL Draft, he has been mocked as high as the second overall pick this offseason. While that could potentially be a bit too generous, all SC fans should certainly be betting on him going top 10.

According to the WynnBET betting odds for London's draft position, his over/under is 10.5. To take the over, it's -108. To take the under, the odds are set at -112. WynnBET keeps it close, but obviously expects London to go in the top ten. WynnBET is right.

Drake London is going to represent USC football as a top ten draft pick.

Drake London's draft stock has continued to climb at a very high rate ever since the offseason began. It's on an upward trajectory, and most top mock draft experts having him going in the top ten at the latest right now.

Therefore, if he's already generally getting mocked to be in the top ten, he certainly isn't likely to get drafted at a lesser spot than that due to his stock continuing to rise throughout the offseason. Of course, there's nuance involved that may stop that trajectory from moving upward, but it's certainly not going to begin moving downward.

Teams already know what they're getting from London. They know that they're getting a big-bodied receiver who runs a diverse route tree (which was enhanced through being a former tight end), and hauls in contested catches better than anyone:

They know he had almost 1,100 yards last season with seven touchdowns in under eight games last year. The production's certainly there. They know he's a freak athlete with good game speed and elite trucking ability, and they also have seen the way he hurdles defenders.

The only thing they need to worry about is his height typically not projecting at as successful of a rate (6'5") than heights one or two inches shorter when it comes to the best wide receivers in the NFL. Again, though, that's already known by NFL front offices. That's his only negative other than his injury (which is something NFL front offices of course already know about and are monitoring as well), so he's not going to lose draft stock at his Pro Day no matter what happens there. His skills that he will be showcasing at his Pro Day have already been put under the microscope.

It's only up from here, which is crazy considering he already is set to be drafted in the top ten. So, even if his stock doesn't continue to improve, it's certainly not going to dip. His over/under is 10.5, and you need to be smashing that under.
