After most of the top-tier free agents have signed, many teams have finalized the top of their roster. With that set, their horizontal draft boards can begin to crystallize. While need shouldn’t be the ultimate decision maker in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, it will certainly play a big role.

How does this change the way teams may draft? Let’s take a team-by-team look with our latest mock draft.

Nothing has changed at the top of the draft. Garrett looks like an elite prospect on tape and at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine. In the midst of a massive roster rebuild, the Browns would be smart to select Garrett.

    For the record I think that it is ok for the Eagles to go after an offensive player in the first round but the vast majority of the subsequent picks need to be dedicated to the defensive side of the ball.

    Did you seriously say that the Eagles Defense is “solid”??
    We have no corners, a hole at DT and one viable pass rusher. Am I missing something?

    As a Raven fan i don’t have an issue with this mock, it is by far better than 95% of all the other mocks ive seen. I would be happy with the selection of Conley in the 1st round, but to me our greatest need is a #1WR. Wallace and Perriman are ok #2 and 3’s. But they are speed WR, Flacco is most effective when he has a big, chain moving, possession WR. Although there a few that we could get in the 2nd or one of two 3rd picks. Williams or Davis would really improve our pass offense righy away as day one starters. I also think to ensure we don’t go into the draft pressimg, we should sign a vet WR and CB and a vet Center. Michael Floyd might be suspended by the NFL for 4 games. But the reward out weight the risk, signing him to a incentive based 1 year contract with a club option for a 2nd year, and id do the same with Revis and Nick Mangold. These moves coupled with a good draft would put us back in the playoff hurt.
