FAQ's About the 2017 NFL Draft

April 28, 2017

Q: How many Alabama football players will be selected in this year's draft?

A: They had projected to have six players go in just the first round, they only had 4. The talent coming out of Alabama this year is less dominant than the last four to five years, how many more will be something to keep an eye on.

 

Q: Will the Browns get another bust?

A: Another year with the first pick, and Cleveland picked Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett. This guy is a beast, standing 6'4" and weighing 272 pounds, all while still posting a 4.64 second 40 yard dash time in the combine. I don't see this guy being a bust in the NFL. However, getting drafted by the Browns isn't the best feeling in the world.

 

Q: Which quarterback goes first? 

A: The days of having to decide between RGIII, Andrew Luck, and Russell Wilson are far over. This year the first QB to be taken was Mitchell Trubisky, from North Carolina by the Chicago Bears. He promising potential in the NFL. Right behind him is Patrick Mahomes out of Texas Tech, picked by the Chiefs. He has the potential to be the next Aaron Rodgers and is projected to be Tyrod Taylor's backup in Buffalo then be the Bills' signal caller come 2018.

 

Q: What name is Roger Goodell most likely to butcher this year?

A: Ryan Ramczyk, offensive lineman from Wisconsin. Picked 32nd by the Saints, commissioner Goodell was wishing he would have to open the envelope. On a serious note, Ramczyk can provide a lot to a team's offensive line, and is built to play tackle, guard, or even center. According to Chris Simms, of Bleacher Report, "There's not a better run-blocking lineman in the draft."

 

Q: What team will win the draft?

A: By winning the draft we're talking about the best picks and most memorable rookie class 10 years down the road. The team that could very well achieve that this year is the Jacksonsville Jaguars. Taking LSU running back Leonard Fournette with their 4th overall pick, who looks like Bo Jackson and Adrian Peterson had a child. Now the pressure is on Blake Bortles to utilize this talented back and spark a floundering Jacksonville offense. The Jags also won the offseason by signing Doug Marrone as new Head Coach and acquiring former New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin to an Executive Vice President role in the organization.
