Your Full 2017 Draft Prep Guide

Here is everything you need to read to prepare for the start of the 2017 NFL Draft. We looked at the roster position-by-position and also looked back at how Ted has fared in each round in the past. We looked at successful drafting themes and did some case studies on some individual player questions.

What didn’t we do? A giant profile on each top prospect. Why? They’re all wrong. History has shown us that no one gets these right all the time (not even Bill Belichick, that’s why he has to cheat). Clearly teams didn’t think Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady were worth top 20 picks. But guys like Jamarcus Russell and Brady Quinn sure were, though. Blair Thomas went 15 picks before Emmitt Smith. Four time Pro Bowl corner Brent Grimes went undrafted. We didn’t try to beat the pros, we also didn’t do mock drafts. They can be fun, but come on, who’s even gonna get the top 10 right?

So, without trying to guess or predict things that we can’t guess or predict with any level of accuracy, here’s all the background and context you need to prep for the draft… and when you’re done with that, but still want mocks and analysis, go check out @JuMosq on twitter for all sorts of great custom analytics.
