Ready to predict the 2017 draft already? Be ready to be wrong http://dlvr.it/LDvX6r

Is it really too early for all the too-early 2017 NFL mock drafts?

Not really, believe it or not. But it’s a great time to remember how much can happen in one year in college football, in the life and career of a young player, and examine the belief that things don’t change nearly as much as they really do.

@NFL_CFB

Top 100 players in #collegefootball 1. @ClemsonFB's Watson 2. @LSUfootball's Fournette FULL: http://on.nfl.com/26WXgWD

 

A good way to set your Twitter mentions alight is to suggest that Fournette isn't even the best RB on his team.

Kareem Hunt could honestly be outside the top 10 backs taken next year. That's crazy depth.

 

Potential to be one of the deepest RB classes in history. Who said the run game was dead?

They really are pushing this Leidner thing. It's wonderful.

Browns didn't draft a QB early in 2016. They land Clemson's Deshaun Watson at No. 1 in @PFF_Steve's early 2017 mock: https://t.co/mNUCwG1jJ8

Gee, that is a very impressive group of RB's.

 

I noticed how many were Juniors, so the question is, how many of them will declare.

 

Is Nick Chubb going to be the same after that horrifying injury last year?

They expect us to be worse if we are at 13 and if we draft a RB besides Christian McCaffrey, who could be the next Marshall Faulk, Whaley deserves to be fired.

 

If Kelly improves he will be in the first round regardless of checkered past, but I'm leery of spread QBs including Watson.

 

Not familiar with Kaaya but being in a pro offense he's worth checking out along with other pro style teams like Michigan, Michigan St., Stanford and the rest.

This is stupid.  Does anyone have last April's mock draft for 2016?  How close was that prediction? 

 

I bet 75% of these 1st rounders picked for 2106... weren't even on the mock draft after the draft last spring.

 

Let alone team needs.... Who thought Mario would be gone?  Or that Tyrod would be the starter going  into this year?

 

Then there is the whole injury thing and Juniors coming out..... Hell, I can believe I just wasted my time typing this. :bag:  :bag: :bag:  

 

 

It's just a mock for entertainment only, relax man

probably a lot considering their careers are generally shorter and don't want to waste it in college.

I watched Watson play 6 or 7 times last year and the guy is impressive. He reminds me of a smaller version of Cam. Not quite as tall and about 40lbs lighter right now, but the same talent level like Cam in college. The guy can run AND throw the football. Kaaya? Ehhhhhhh, idk. The guy hasn't really done anything to be in the discussion if you ask me, but what do I know. Kelly I don't trust because of his immaturity issues, but we'll see how he does this year. Another guy I think people may be sleeping on is Baker Mayfield. He had a couple of tough games last year, but if he shows improvement this season coming off of a solid year last then he could be in the 1st Round equation. After that I think you have a bunch of developmental guys.

Rochester's own Jarron Jones, nose tackle for Notre Dame will shot up these draft boards if he can put a healthy season together.

Part 1 of Mark Schofield's watch list for 2017 quarterbacks - http://insidethepylo...ch-list-part-1/

 

I'm taking a quick look at about a dozen QB's over the next few weeks, I'll add my thoughts at some point.

Chris Shanafelt's top 2017-eligible small school prospects - https://docs.google....f=2&pli=1#gid=0

 

Names that jump off the page - Cooper Kupp (EWU WR) and Connor Harris (Lindenwood LB). Harris has racked up 336 tackles in his past 2 seasons (22 games).

 

Harris has also played a bit of RB, returned a few punts (at 243 pounds) and been the backup punter.
