I know. I know.

The draft is just over and the Eagles really have no idea how their team in flux will ultimately settle by September:

Will Sam Bradford’ knee be ready?

How about DeMarcus Murray running behind the Birds O-line?

And will Kiko Alonzo be a hit at inside linebacker.

But that doesn’t stop the sharpies in Vegas from setting a benchmark.

According to Bovada, an on-line sports betting operation, only three teams have a better chance than the Eagles of getting to the Super Bowl out of the NFC.

Rookie wide receiver Nelson Agholor, the Eagles first-round draft pick, is also in the mix for the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

In its post-draft odds, Bovada lists the Eagles at 18-1 to win the Super Bowl; and 10-1 to win the NFC. Only the two-time defending NFC champions, Seattle (3-1), Green Bay (4-1) and Dallas (13-2) have better odds to win the NFC.

Agholor, the 20th overall pick of the first round of USC, is the eighth choice to win the Rookie Award at odds of 14-1.

Former Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, taken with the 15th overall pick by the San Diego Chargers, is the current favorite at 13-2.

Quarterbacks Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay) and Marcus Mariota (Tennessee), the first two picks in the draft, are both listed at 7-1. Wide receiver Amari Cooper, taken fourth overall by Oakland, is 15-2.
