NFL Mock Draft 2017: Joe Mixon – Eagles, Obi Melifonwu – Patriots, updated second round


After months of smokescreens and NFL Draft –niks blowing smoke, the 2017 NFL Draft is this week. There is still great intrigue at the top of the 2017 draft as the Browns leaked out a few weeks back that they were interested in taking a QB at No. 1 overall.

It’s difficult to get an idea of what Browns boss Paul DePodesta is thinking. On one hand, a moneyball philosophy tells you to take the best available player regardless of position. That is unequivocally Myles Garrett. On the other hand, DePodesta is looking at football as an outsider – and any outsider with a brain will tell you the No. 1 rule in the NFL is that you have to have a top-notch QB to thrive. Maybe DePodesta takes multiple QBs in this draft.

Obtaining a franchise QB remains a crapshoot. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers kept falling in their respective drafts. Matt Ryan was the third overall pick and Ben Roethlisberger was the 11th overall pick.

There are no guarantees.
