NFL Draft: Top 50
Our list of the 50 best players available
This is one of the hardest drafts I have ever scouted, top to bottom. Lots of potential, but a lot of questions on how this draft will be remembered. Here is my list of the Top 50 players entered into the 2017 NFL Draft.
Note, this is not the order I expect the players to be drafted, for that check out my Mock Draft 2.0 that was finalized Monday. By comparison, here is my Top 50 prior to February’s NFL Combine, so you can see how some players have improved their stock during those workouts, on campus Pro Days, and additional film study.
Also, noticeably absent from this Top 50 list is Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon. I took Mixon completely off my board. Undraftable grade from me.
