Most of the big fish in free agency have already landed and things are settling down. Let’s see what that does to this 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
Smart GMs sign team needs in free agency so they can pick the best players early in the draft. Teams that pick early even sign free agents to complement who they plan to pick. That’s team building 101 in the NFL and most teams follow it.
Almost three weeks into free agency, most of the big-name players have found homes. So we can see what teams may do in the draft from what they did or didn’t do in free agency. There are players like Adrian Peterson and Zach Brown that have yet to find a home.
Other than that, there are isn’t much out there that can possibly change a pick. A draft trade is on the way as the New Orleans Saints look to sign restricted free agent Malcolm Butler. Turn the page to how all of this affects this 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
