2017 NFL First Round Mock Draft

The 2017 NFL Draft will begin on Thursday night at 8 p.m.in the beautiful city of Philadelphia, with television coverage on ESPN. This year’s draft is full of question marks. Who will the Browns take with the number 1 overall pick? Who will be the first running back taken off the board? Will a quarterback be taken in the top 10? When if at all will Joe Mixon be drafted? How loud will the boos be when commissioner Goodell announces the picks?

All these questions don’t have answers at the moment; well, besides that last one. (The boos aimed at commissioner Goodell are going to be tremendously loud.) Right now the best anyone can do is guess, and trust me, plenty of people have.

Just enter the term “mock draft” in the google search bar and watch how many results come up. (About 16,600,000 results in 0.60 seconds) Thousands of sports writers have come up with their own Mock Draft and I have decided to join in on the full as well. So here it is enjoy my first round mock draft.
