I have to admit by now, we are so drafted out.
As there is every year in April, there are a bevy of unanswered questions and intriguing curiosities as the Eagles prepare the the 2017 NFL Draft.

As the best available quarterback in the draft, many experts have Trubisky going to the Browns somewhere in the first round. I’m just an old funky college coach. I interjected my personal opinion that the story would quickly go away, and I was wrong. “I think he’s going to be gone”. “I’m just telling you”. It could be Kizer.
At the first pick, there’s no need for the Browns to overthink and overanalyze. All have glaring needs at the position.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, UNC quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will be one of the first players selected in the NFL Draft later this week, and there’s a chance he’ll be taken first overall. But they don’t have a selection in the second after trading back into the top 10 a year ago to take All Pro right tackle Jack Conklin at No. 8.
In this scenario the Browns get the best player in the draft and a potential defensive standout, and they get a quarterback they hope can grow into “the guy”. They’ve made that clear enough, and it’s North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky they are using as the bait. But Johnson also makes clear that it’s risky to think you have so many picks that it’s ok to take a risk and package them to move up. In fact, the last Bears quarterback drafted in the first round was Rex Grossman (who did lead them to the Super Bowl, for what it’s worth).
Cleveland has 11 picks in all, including numbers #1 and #12 in the first round. That’s not great news for those prospects but it is for teams in need. Peterman is sometimes careless with the football, but his arm strength, touch, and accuracy make him an intriguing prospect. “Yes, they do”, Gruden said.
Shanahan has yet to commit to Hoyer as his starter, but the two-year, $12 million agreement – with $6.95 million guaranteed – is a strong indication he is the early front-runner.
Whether it’s Njoku, O.J. Howard, or another tight end, the Giants will likely consider attempting to upgrade at the position through the 2017 NFL Draft. He says he thinks he’s primed to take advantage.
“I haven’t been getting mixed reviews from scouts”, Robinson said. “He’s a lot better player than I was at that time”. I love the Colorado corner’s versatility. What I don’t like is 17 interceptions on a national-championship team. throws way too many interceptions. After running backs failed to go in the first round in 2013 and ’14, LSU’s Leonard Fournette, Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and Florida State’s Dalvin Cook could be selected on Thursday. “That’s a big challenge”. This is a great situation for a rookie quarterback – but the Browns don’t have a good defense. Due to trades, the Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, and New England Patriots all are without a pick in the first round.
