The Team-less 2017 NFL Mock Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Articles » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:22 pm

Unlike most mock drafts, where most look straight for what their team of choice is projected to do, this mock draft strips out the team element. The projections here are strictly player and draft slot.

The picks here reflect the approximate draft range for the players. There are obvious influences with several picks, but others are situations where it’s a lot easier to forecast the player than the team. This accounts for the inevitable trades.

My goal with these is for the player to be drafted within one slot in either direction for the first 10 picks, within 2 slots in picks 11-30 and within 3 slots beyond that.

This also serves as my entry in the Huddle Report top 100 board contest, though the picks here do not reflect my personal rankings. For that, check the What I Would Do mock from last week.
