NFL Mock Draft 2017: Fresh Round 1 Pick Predictions Post-Super Bowl LI

by NESN Staff

February 8, 2017

The New England Patriots are Super Bowl LI champions, and with that begins the offseason and the build up to the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia.

The first round is loaded with talented defensive players, specifically on the defensive line. Rushing the quarterback is one of the top priorities in today’s NFL, and teams in need of upgrading that part of their defense should be able to find some help up and down this draft class.

Cornerback is another position of strength, and we might see as many as five taken in Round 1.
