The media draft community is widely panning the Dallas Cowboys for their overall haul in the 2021 NFL draft. The Athletic’s Arif Hassan compiled a Consensus Big Board that grouped together the thoughts of 70 different draft pundits and ranked the Cowboys’ draft 28th of 32 teams in respect to the amount of draft capital they entered the weekend with. A twitter user compiled draft grades from 18 different outlets and Dallas ranked 27th.

Want to know who is impressed with what Dallas did? The sportsbooks. Bet MGM released their odds for offensive and defensive rookies of the year and look who is at the top of the list? Cowboys first-round pick, 12th overall and the third defender selected Micah Parsons shows up with +500 odds, well ahead of Cleveland linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koromoah (+800).

Their fascination with the Cowboys doesn’t end there, however. Two more Cowboys are on the list.

LSU linebacker Jabril Cox shows up slightly lower on the list with +3500 odds. That ties him with five other players for 16th-best odds. Not bad at all for the 115th overall selection. He actually has better odds than the Cowboys’ second-round pick, Kentucky CB Kelvin Joseph. Taken No. 44 overall, Joseph has +5000 odds, tying him with four other players for 23rd-best odds.

In fact, that’s not the last Cowboys player on the list.

Defensive lineman from UCLA Osa Odighizuwa checks in with the final group to get odds of +10000. There are 30 of those guys, but to paraphrase Lloyd Christmas, we’re telling you there’s a chance.
