2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

The NFL Playoffs are set and the NFL Draft order, except for compensatory picks, are all set as well. With that, 2017 NFL Mock Draft.

A few thoughts before you skip down to the actually Mock Draft. (You just skipped down didn't you? You little skipper!)

  • Picks are based on what I would do if I were those teams.
  • I have already reached out to people who cover some of the teams to get intel.
  • If I have inside information, will be noted in some way.
  • I try not to look at other Mock Drafts but use as many people's Big Boards as possible.
  • Will go into more detail for Cleveland Browns picks as process goes on.
  • Remember that QBs tend to rise up boards in the process.
  • Remember that big guys on the line tend to dominate the 1st Round.
  • The OL class is not good.
  • The defensive class is great.
  • I will do Full 1st Round Mocks, plus pick #33, and 4 Round Browns Mock Drafts.
  • On to 2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0:
