Don Banks' 2017 NFL Mock Draft : There are a ton of unknowns about how this year’s first round will shake out, but we’re finally close to getting some questions answered.

My first and only rule in mocking out the first round of the NFL Draft is always the same every year: Push potential starting quarterbacks up in the round, because they always get drafted higher than they should due to need. The story remains the same in 2017. I've got four quarterbacks going in my only mock of the year, with the Browns dealing up to the Jets' No. 6 slot to get the passing party started, and the Texans taking a flyer on another fast-rising quarterback at No. 25.
