NFL Mock Draft 2017: Predicted First-Round Picks After Clemson Vs. Alabama Classic

2,492

You can bet NFL scouts and front office personnel paid strict attention to Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship between Clemson and Alabama.

Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson gave an all-time performance with nearly 500 total yards and four total touchdowns in a 35-31 win. He boosted his draft stock in the process and made himself stand out in a weak quarterback class.

Alabama has several players expected to be picked in Round 1, mostly on defense. Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, who’s probably the best among them, didn’t have a great game against Clemson.
