NFL Draft 2017: Which player do mock drafts project each team to pick?

Rounding up and compiling mock drafts to predict the 2017 NFL Draft.

Now that the 2016 NFL season is over, all eyes turn to the 2017 offseason. The big event is the NFL draft, scheduled for April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

The Cleveland Browns are at the top of the draft order following their 1-15 season, but they also have the No. 12 selection thanks to a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016. While there’s still plenty of time for players to climb up or slide down boards, Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is currently the heavy favorite to be Cleveland’s No. 1 pick.

By surveying as many mock drafts as possible, we can get a good idea of the directions experts expect most teams to go.

A few notes:

  • This will be updated consistently until draft day.
  • Players selected just once by a team are in the “others” category.
  • Mock drafts that include trades are not included.
  • With a lot of similar colors, I know some of the slices can be hard to tell apart (sorry, Raiders fans). Hover over or click on the chart and it’ll show the numbers and name for each individual slice. It also can be read like a clock with the names on the right representing the slices clockwise around the chart.
  • The No. 14 pick will be decided by a coin flip between the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles at the NFL Combine.
  • All the mock drafts used are listed at the bottom.
