2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

Written by admin

2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 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.
