PLAYBOOK 2017 NFL Mock Draft

By: Marc Lawrence | Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Last year we accurately named 24 of the 31 players selected in the first round, with 8 players selected by their designated teams.  Here is Playbook's assessment on the 2017 NFL Draft based on player availability and team needs, all of course pending any trades.

By other draft boards, DeShaun Watson and Joe Mixon look to be reaches. However, they are talented and whether it's the 49ers and Raiders selecting them, or a traded team, they are well thought out selections that should serve their teams well. Enjoy the draft.
