NFL Mock Draft 2017: Midseason First-Round Pick Predictions For Every Team

We’re at the midway point of the 2016 NFL season, but unfortunately for fans of some teams, next spring’s NFL Draft is the most exciting thing to read about.

If you support one of those disappointing teams, we’re here to help.

The upcoming draft doesn’t have a can’t-miss quarterback prospect — sorry, Cleveland Browns — but there’s plenty of elite defensive skill and depth throughout the first round, especially among defensive backs. We might see as many as 10 defensive backs taken in Round 1.
