NFL Mock Draft 2017: First-Round Pick Predictions In Weak Quarterback Class

by NESN Staff

March 30, 2017

NFL teams in need of a franchise quarterback probably won’t find what they’re looking for in April’s draft.

This year’s QB class is pretty weak. There’s no Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III kind of A-level prospect. The better option for QB-needy teams is to wait a few rounds and take a signal caller in the mid-to-late rounds. Maybe you get lucky and draft the next Dak Prescott.

This doesn’t mean Round 1 will be void of quarterbacks. North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky could be a top-15 pick, especially with the Cleveland Browns holding Nos. 1 and 12. Clemson’s Deshaun Watson is an enticing option for late in the first round, and Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes is rising up draft boards and might sneak his way into Round 1.
