The 2017 NFL Draft is only five weeks away, which leaves plenty of time for players to move up and down the board. Here is our latest 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
Beginning on April 27, the latest crop of NFL stars will be drafted to their respective teams. There is only five weeks left for prospects to improve their draft status, as most colleges are going through their Pro Day in the coming weeks. There has also been speculation about trades involving first round picks as of late, so the draft board could look a whole lot different by the time the Cleveland Browns hand in their first pick.
Here is our latest 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
With five weeks until the 2017 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns are still in control of the No. 1 overall pick. Last year, the Browns traded away their No. 2 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles, which was used on quarterback Carson Wentz. While the Browns are still searching for a quarterback of their own, the likely pick at No. 1 will be edge rusher Myles Garrett from Texas A&M.
Garrett has an incredible blend of size and speed, and he put on quite a show during the NFL Scouting Combine. The Browns need a player of his caliber along the defensive line, as he would give them the kind of pass rusher they need to be competitive in the AFC North. Cleveland has a long way to go until they are a relevant team in the NFL, but it seems like they have a good plan in place.
The Browns also pick at No. 12 this year, the pick they received when they traded away No. 2 last year. That pick will likely be used on a quarterback, though there has been rumors they will trade that pick to the New England Patriots in order to get Jimmy Garoppolo. Cleveland has done a nice job bolstering their offensive line this offseason, bringing in Kevin Zeitler and J.C. Tretter, so bringing in a playmaker on the other side of the ball has to be the priority at No. 1 next month.
