The 2017 NFL Draft kicks off on April 27 at 8 p.m. ET. And while mock drafts never pan out, Niner Noise provides you with our latest take on what each team will do in Round 1.
In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s NFL Draft season.
The 2017 NFL Draft begins on April 27, with Round 1 taking the majority of focus on day one. Rounds 2 and 3 take place on April 28, and day three wraps up the action with the remaining rounds on April 29.
But let’s focus on Round 1.
The Cleveland Browns hold the No. 1 overall pick, and the general consensus is they’ll go with the best player available in this year’s class — Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett.
Sure, things could get interesting — it’s the Browns — but it would be silly to assume anything else here.
Behind Cleveland, the San Francisco 49ers likely have the choice of any player not named Garrett. Assuming they stay put, which we’ll do for the entirety of this mock, the Niners could go one of many different directions.
The last few weeks have seen a number of prospects rise and fall. We’ll incorporate that into our mock NFL Draft projection as well.
So to kick things off, let’s look at what Cleveland does when its number is called.
