The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons will play for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5 in Houston, but for the other 30 NFL teams, it’s time to look at the 2017 draft.

Defense wins championships, and that’s the theme of this draft class. This year’s group is loaded with quality pass rushers and run stoppers, led by Texas A&M star Myles Garrett, who’s been atop mock drafts and rankings throughout the season.

In fact, it’s very possible we see two defensive ends selected in the top five as Garrett and Alabama stud Jonathan Allen both grade out as top prospects.

Here’s our ninth 2017 NFL mock draft.
