2017 NFL Mock Draft 1-12-17

nfl draft big business

In our 2017 NFL mock draft, we based the order on the actual current order at the regular season. We sorted the playoff teams based on how we’re predicting the NFL playoffs will shape out. The NFL breaks ties in draft order by reverse order of strength of schedule. Thus we don’t know for sure who will be picking #14 and #15 between Indianapolis and Minnesota’s pick (which is owned by Philadelphia), as the NFL has not confirmed the order officially.

You’re probably old enough to remember one of those teams being in L.A. and then moving out. (the Rams) If you’re too young, then you’ve read been told about it.
