2017 NFL Mock Draft- We've Got MONSTER Trades!
Published at 3/21/2017 5:44:46 PM
Jimmy Garoppolo to the Browns for pick #12 (NE-CLE). Kirk Cousins and pick #17 to the 49ers for pick #2 (WAS-SF). Tony Romo and pick #28 to the Texans for J.J. Watt (DAL-HOU). Marshawn Lynch and Pick #26 to the Raiders for Pick #24 (SEA-OAK swap). There are more selections in play here and in later years, but these are the only swaps that affect the first round draft order. Other than these four big trades, it's the default order. Enjoy, and feel free to rate and give feedback.

This one's a no-brainer. Cleveland takes the best player off the board, deciding to trade for Jimmy G and win now. Smart move.
If the Niners still had the pick, I'd hesitate to give them Allen, because he really he is a bad fit in San Fran. However, he couldn't make more sense for the 'Skins.
The Bears' defense isn't nearly as menacing as it used to be, but they are a piece or two away from holding their own in the NFC North. Safety should be a high priority for them.
A team that needs help all around would be smart to take the best player available at fourth. Thomas was a freak at the combine, and the Jags' pass rush needs help.
Malik Hooker would be a nice add to the Titan's struggling secondary, but I'm assuming his injury concerns will push him out of the top five. Not that Lattimore isn't a wow factor.
No team wants to be clear about their draft intentions, but there have been rumors that the Jets really like this kid. Since they haven't signed a QB yet, I'll have to agree.
With the first curve ball of the draft, Bolt City reaches for Cam from Bam (like that?)- even though I haven't seen a mock without them grabbing a safety, o-line is a huge need also.
In my last mock, I said that the Panthers don't need a back bad enough to take Dalvin at eighth, but the same rules don't apply to Fournette: he's a once-in-a-decade talent at RB.
Why would the Bengals ever take a running back when they already have two qualified starters? Good question, but I've seen weirder selections, and why not? This might work.
The Bills are actually in the market for a safety, and since Hooker fell to them in this mock, they're happy to take a high-upside player who's drawn comparisons to Ed Reed.
The Saints have made it pretty clear that they want to snag an edge rusher and a corner early on this year, and I think Barnett's long resume is just what this defense needs.
Foster has fallen out of the top ten here, due to concussion worries and some incident with a nurse- but the Patriots bring the best out in players, and Foster has a lot to bring.
Larry Fitzgerald really isn't getting any younger. Mike Williams had an underwhelming combine, but that won't stop him from being the first receiver off the board.
Had the Eagles not signed two receivers, John Ross would be the perfect pick right here. However, they can now address a major need at corner with Jones- achilles or not.
I saw this pick in a mock a few weeks back, and I didn't really like it. However, with Cook, Barnett, and Foster all off the board, Harris seems to be the Colts' only option.
I have never put this guy this high in any of my mocks, but consider it a hunch. Ravens fans miss Ray Lewis, and Zach might not be there yet- but the potential is there, for sure.
