The Ringer’s 2017 NFL Mock Draft, Version 4.0 : After Myles Garrett goes to Cleveland, the rest of the first round is one giant question mark. Which QB will go first? How far will the running backs fall? And how high will the safeties rise?
It won’t even take a gas-mask-bong incident for the 2017 NFL draft to get weird. It’s unusual for a number of reasons, but principal among them is the lack of a clear consensus on the best quarterback. Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes II has seen his stock skyrocket into the top 10 discussion, North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky has vacillated between potential no. 1 overall pick and the third or fourth passer off the board, and Clemson’s Deshaun Watson seems just as likely to be the first quarterback selected as he is to fall out of the first round, like we outlined in Version 1.0 of the mock draft.
