2017 NFL Mock Draft: Deshaun Watson & Jabrill Peppers in Top 5 Picks


Between now and April 2017, draft prospects will be scrutinized as fans and front offices find holes in each player's game. To be clear, Deshaun Watson has flaws. There are questions about his accuracy, decision making and body frame just to name a few areas. For all the questions, the reality is a number of teams that will have a high draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft need a quarterback. Watson may not be a fit for every team, but he is likely to be a fit for one team with a first round selection. He is 30-3 as a starter and led Clemson to their second straight College Football Playoff. While it may not be a strong quarterback class, Watson looks to the best of the bunch. On the defensive side, fellow Heisman Trophy finalist Jabrill Peppers is one of the top prospects. While he does not have great statistics in terms of turnovers, he makes up for it with his versatility and ability to play multiple positions. He has been a big reason for the success of Michigan's defense this season and an NFL team will be more than happy to find a place for him. The draft is not until April 27, 2017 but this is how we see the beginning of the draft shaking out. The order is based on the current NFL standings.
