The question I received the most last week – “Is it possible you could do a mock draft mashup of 2015-2016-2017 prospects to help us with proper valuations?”
It’s critical to put this 2017 class into context, so like I’ve done with draft class combo mocks prior — I will take the players drafted into the NFL from 2015 and 2016, based on what we know of them today, and combine them with the 2017 prospects…the mystery that they are…and have one giant dynasty rookie mashup draft of the 2015-2016-2017 prospects. Who would I draft first (well, that’s a no-brainer), second, etc.
We’ll go like 30-40-50 players deep. We did this with the 2015-2016 group pre-draft this year and had a version of it last year, now the world has been turned upside down for some of these players with the 2017 NFL Draft…so, it’s time to re-look/re-value these 2015 and 2016 prospects, and add in the context of the 2017 guys.
I’ll reveal 2-3 picks per day, with commentary, for a week+ period — starting sometime the week of 5/8…hopefully, starting by midweek.
I sketched out the top prospects and candidates for this 2015-16-17 mashup mock draft…wow…how revealing. The 2017 class really looks different against the backdrop of the 2015-2016 players today.
