Most NFL mock drafts focus around the analyst's predictions of what will happen in Round 1, but this is not most mock drafts. I've been tracking changes to draft odds in the betting market for more than a week at SportsLine, where I also put together mock drafts based solely around a snapshot of the odds market one month out and one week out from draft day. Today, we're bringing that market-focused mock draft to CBS Sports with our odds-based mock draft one day out from the start of the draft.

What this means: If a player's draft position odds all point one way, we'll find a way to make that happen -- provided the math works out, as we're not going to force 33 first-round picks, for example -- after we go through the odds for who will be selected in each of the first 10 picks. If a player seemingly doesn't quite line up for the prospect that's pointing to that pick, we'll look to engineer a few trades to make sure we're staying aligned with the market rather than defer to the team in the slot currently.

We'll also take into account other available odds to make a pick in certain spots. Here's an example: We know Caleb Williams is going No. 1 overall, and four other players have minus odds to be top-five picks, including J.J. McCarthy. But McCarthy isn't the favorite to go in any specific slot in the top five. But No. 5 is pretty evenly split among several players, and one who is the favorite at some sites -- Malik Nabers -- is also the favorite for No. 6. So that's a spot where we'll figure out a trade for McCarthy like many mock drafters before us.

One other unique element to this mock draft is that we can go deeper than Round 1 as we have draft position odds for 54 players, which doesn't include Williams, Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye at the top of the draft. So after our look at how the odds are projecting the first round, we'll share how the stock of every other available player is pointing.

This mock is built based on the odds from Circa in Las Vegas, which can be a bellwether for odds movements nationally, as well as Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel. Let's get into it.

McCarthy moved to a slight favorite to go No. 5 at DraftKings on Wednesday, while FanDuel still had Malik Nabers a decent bit ahead and Caesars had four players (including Harrison and Joe Alt) with basically the same odds around +200. However, McCarthy is -145 to -160 to be a top-five pick at DraftKings and FanDuel, and everyone else is at plus odds, so he's our pick. The Vikings are the clear favorite to end up with McCarthy at those two books as well, so they send No. 11 and 23 to get to this slot.

Odunze is third on the No. 8 overall board behind Dallas Turner and Laiatu Latu, who are around even with each other at various books. But Odunze is also at least -150 to go Under 8.5 everywhere, so like with McCarthy we're going to force a trade to get him into the proper position. The Colts have receiver as the second favorite to be their first pick, so the Falcons receive No. 15, 46 and a 2025 fourth-rounder to trade down. Another reason to punt on the No. 8 overall odds: Only one has Turner at minus odds to be a top-10 pick, while none have Latu in that range.

Murphy is now the favorite to go at No. 9 at DraftKings and FanDuel, and while Dallas Turner remains the favorite to be the first defender drafted, his draft position odds have continued to trend toward Over 9.5, which Circa has at -205 juice as of Wednesday. By contrast, Murphy's odds to go Under his draft position (ranging from 13.5 to 16.5 at various books) have snowballed to the Under, with Circa posting -345 on Under 14.5 on Wednesday. Also worth noting: Books seem to be coalescing around Jared Verse as the third option for this pick behind Murphy and Odunze rather than Turner or Laiatu Latu. This could also be a trade-down spot as the Bears have only four picks, and the teams in the teens that may have fallen for Murphy know they need to get aggressive.

The Chargers pass on the opportunity to select Joe Alt and instead pick up extra draft capital before taking Latham to play on the right side of the O-line. He's up to the -205 to -230 to go Under 14.5 at Circa, Caesars and DraftKings, and while FanDuel still has him juiced Over 13.5, they've scaled that price back heading into Wednesday.

Quarterback has been heavily favored to be the Broncos' first pick for much of the predraft process but lately the odds market has shifted to make defensive line/edge either favored or close to it. This could certainly be a trade down to allow Denver to take Bo Nix later in the draft, or the Broncos could use future draft capital to help get into position for him in Round 2. Turner and Laiatu Latu are trending toward either other in the odds market but Turner's stock still seems slightly higher, though both are pointing around this pick.

The betting market is projecting Fuaga to go right around this pick, and he seems like the perfect fit for the Raiders at right tackle. He's juiced Over 12.5 and Under 13.5 at different books, so he's our pick here.

Another obvious match here with the Saints in dire need of tackle help with Trevor Penning a recent bust at left tackle and Ryan Ramczyk a question mark at right tackle due to injury.

The Eagles are reportedly in the market to move up and are -160 to go cornerback first, the Seahawks are always a trade-down candidate, and the former has an extra second-round pick while the latter doesn't have one at all. It's the perfect match to keep Mitchell near where the market is valuing him around No. 15, which is likely pinning him as a great fit for a Colts team that traded up in this mock. The Eagles trade No. 22 and 50 to the Seahawks for No. 16 and 81.

While Fautanu was circling around the end of the top 15 for much of the last week, he steamed toward Over 15.5 on Wednesday, with sportsbooks making him -180 to -230 to go outside the top 15. That puts him into range for the Bengals who are -185 to go offensive lineman with their first pick.

Over the past week, Thomas' stock has gone from the No. 15-17 range to heavily favored to go Over 19.5, and once he gets into the 20s he's a clear trade-up target for a few receiver-needy teams. The Bills are -280 to take a receiver first but the stock for the player expected to be available around their slot -- Adonai Mitchell -- appears to be dropping. So they trade a 2025 third-round pick to the Seahawks, who previously moved into this slot from No. 16, to get Thomas.

With Robinson's stock on the rise, the Cardinals swap No. 104 for No. 126 in order to move up two slots and nab him.

A 2025 second-round pick in addition to No. 44 is a bit of a premium for Vegas to pay, but it's similar to past trades up when a QB is involved.

The Chargers would be the obvious fit for Benson but the juice on 68.5 is toward the Under and they pick 69th, so instead we send him to the Patriots where he joins the mix with Rhamondre Stevenson and Antonio Gibson.

The Broncos traded this pick as part of the package to get into the early second round for Bo Nix, and the Titans are able to use it on edge rush help and address a need by taking Trice, who is -120 to go Under 77.5.

Sanders' draft stock in the market has hopped around a bit, settling around 80 for most of the past week before jumping up to 75.5 with balanced juice as of Wednesday. That puts him in range for the Raiders, who have Michael Mayer as their top option at the position but brought in Sanders for a draft visit anyway.

Sinnott's draft position line has settled around 80.5, so this is dead center of his range. The Bengals are likely not going to have a chance at Brock Bowers in the first round without a trade up, so this could be a worthy Plan B option at the position.

Corum is -125 to land Over 84.5, so this could be the right spot for the Cowboys to address their need at running back if they don't want to reach on someone in the second round.

Rattler is -135 to go Over 85.5, and the Bucs have two picks in this range with No. 89 and No. 92. It could be time to turn over the QB2 position behind Baker Mayfield after spending a Round 2 pick on Kyle Trask three years ago.

The Chargers just missed out on Trey Benson earlier in this mock, but Allen's line is at 110.5 with balanced juice on both sides. The Chargers have two picks early in the fourth round, and Allen would figure to be a great fit in Greg Roman's scheme if they use one on him to compete with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards rather than address the position earlier.

The Colts traded into the top 10 early in this mock but used their pick on Rome Odunze instead of Brock Bowers, who has been connected to them if he slips past the Jets. They address the position here with Stover, who is lined at 116.5.

Christian's younger brother is lined at 130.5, and he could be an option for the Ravens at this pick or the Chiefs with the next pick if they want more depth at receiver. After that interestingly enough comes the 49ers, which would mean a family reunion.

Pratt is -120 to Under 137.5 at Circa but -120 to Over 135.5 at Caesars, so he'll slot in for either the Broncos or Patriots at the beginning of Round 5 in this mock. Let's go with Denver double-dipping at the position to give them more options after trading up for Bo Nix on Day 2.
