With the draft just a few days away, it is time for a final 2017 NFL mock draft. The draft process is now complete, and teams are gearing up for the big event on Thursday night. This mock draft is not a projection of what will happen this weekend, but rather a guideline for how each team should approach the draft. The mock will include trades, which will strictly follow the NFL’s trade chart that is posted below.

Before examining the entire draft, it is important to get a feel for the value in the class. A big board is a ranking of the top players in the group, and this one handles the top 150. These aren’t necessarily the 150 best players in the class, but rather 150 players that were worth taking a closer look at. Grades are posted next to the player’s name, and players that finished with the same grade were separated based on upside and positional value. For example, a player that is raw but could develop into a star would be ranked over a player that won’t develop much more.
