2017 NFL Mock Draft by Cap`n Crunch April
Published at 4/26/2017 11:42:23 AM
Here we are 2 days away from the big draft. Last year at this time the big trades were done. I`m a Fantasy Football junkie so I love the draft. Had a few thoughts on the top 6 players from 2016 ,was cool how they actually panned out so I thought I`d do it again this year. Went with 15 players this year showing the depth of this years draft.. Most intriguing ?? Watson-Trubisky-Mahomes-Webb & Kizer... Once again , just like last year, the QB position has the most questions and interest. Safest picks? Garrett-Thomas-Adams-Barnett & McCaffrey all look NFL ready. Most athletic? Peppers-Samuel-Melifonwu-Ross... GARRETT Just wow on how deep this draft class is. Best in decades.

Great player. Has beaten most of the OT`s in this class. Cam Robinson has been the only one to contain him. Lackluster in recent games won`t hurt his value too much.
HUGE combine showing the Browns he is the only player to take @ #1.
also could trade down with a big offer.. would have to be a H. Walker/R. Williams level of trade bait for them to even consider it. *SIDE NOTE* If they take Trubisky @ # 1 I see them trading their unicorn glitter for a straightjacket.... crazyness on the rumors they can`t decide on who to take.....

Fastest rising prospect on most boards. Outstanding motor & talent. Took over the Sun bowl against a decent NC team and made Trubisky look average. Great tape & his combine was very impressive making him a great player for the 49ers. I`m not buying into a QB here. Being honest, I think M. Barkley did well considering his Bears team had little to offer as support. Granted he`s not a franchise QB, neither is Hoyer. I can also see them trading down...or back into the 1st if they want to look @ QB then.

*TRADE UP WITH CHI* swap 2017 1st round picks & give CHI 2018 2nd & 3rd round picks. Jets take a chance on recent injury news and take a great talent.
tek ranking #3.
Jags D is young and talented. Adams is another piece to a rising defense.
tek ranking #4.
Bengals take a great CB@ 5. CB is very deep this year & possibly the best CB class ever. Hamstring concerns are valid but he ran very well at the combine. The CB position has been the most volatile this off-season. ( Tabor & Humphrey dropping IE, Conley & King rising )
*TRADE UP WITH TEN* swap 2017 1st round picks & give TEN 2018 3rd & 4th round pick.
tek ranking #6.
Dominate player. Shoulder may be a issue but he was outstanding for the last 2 years. Better than A. Donald possibly.
*TRADE DOWN WITH NYJ* Receive 2017 #6 & 2018 2nd & 3rd round picks.
tek ranking #23.
Looked great all season. Average combine but has tons of outstanding game tape -vs- top ranked teams. Chargers are a hard team to predict. He will compliment Bosa quite well.
They will look at Safety RD2.
tek ranking #10.
Panthers think his ankle is in good health and grab a huge RB with tons of upside.
tek ranking #5.
1st surprise of the draft but the Titans see him as a game changing talent rarely seen in typical prospects. Best TE in years. Looked awesome at SR Bowl. Great blocking. Athletic. Perfect fit.
from rams trade
*TRADE DOWN WITH CINCY* receive 2017 # 9 and 2018 3rd and 4th RD pick.
tek ranking #11.
Great WR for the Bills. Possible trade down for a QB later this draft.
tek ranking #7.
Him playing so many positions in college has many wondering where he`ll fit. Players with versatility IMO offer value & versatility. He can focus on Safety but has the ability to help out on special teams, OLB, & some offense. Great fit as the Saints have many needs.
tek ranking #9.
Browns stay patient and still get the local kid for their franchise QB. Had a amazing year in 2017.Very accurate on most throws. Looked shaky in a few games this year but that was against top level talent. ( S. Thomas )
tek ranking #12.
Combine was big for all the QB`s in 2017. Had a amazing year in 2017. The big armed QB keeps rising up boards each week.
tek ranking #18.
Eagles take the best RB with a clean bill of health. Minor red flags with possible off-field issues has him falling slightly. Watching him on primetime I saw a dynamic natural player... always made big plays in big games.

tek ranking #8.
He just keeps rising each week. VERY athletic. Moves well but may need coaching up if teams move him to ILB. They will look at RB & O-line prospects RD 2 thru 4.
tek ranking # 19.
Ravens grab a dynamic WR is RD 1. His injury has kept him from rising up boards. Not sure if they will draft a red flag player such as R. Foster and this also fills a big need with S. Smith retired.
tek ranking #13.
