    Worst Draft in Last 10 Years?

    NFL GM says so. Contradicts what I've been hearing on this board.

    I think the article may be correct in not having a ton of impact players, but there are solid contributors deep into the draft. Its just not a "sexy" 1st round I think was the article's main point imo. Every team needs those solid starters and I think there are more than enough in this draft.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    Yup...thin at the top for sure (the "elite" prospects in this draft simply don't compare to elite players in past drafts), but overall it's a deep draft class. Rounds 2-3 should be stronger than usual, and I've heard that there are more draftable players at the end of the draft, so we could be able to get UDFA's that would otherwise be late round picks in other drafts.


    Ruthless 2017 Mock Draft:
    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State
    3.94 CB Sidney Jones 6'0" 186 Washington
    3.105c DE Tanoh Kpassagnon 6'7" 289 Villanova
    4.135 CB Rasul Douglas 6'2" 209 West Virginia
    5.173 RB James Conner 6'1" 233 Pittsburgh
    6.213 SS Lorenzo Jerome 5'10" 204 St. Francis
    7.248 TE Michael Roberts 6'4" 270 Toledo

    This will be a great draft for o-line and d-line. Just not as good for the skill queer positions.

    Another AS masterpiece.

    Yeah, there appears to be no franchise QB in the draft, nor does there appear to be an elite RB or WR. I think most here could say that without talking to a GM.

    I think to say it's the worst in the last 10 years is a stretch. Look at 2009:

    Aside from Stafford, the first few rounds were pretty poor.

    I think this draft class is stacked from the 2nd round on down...
