Projected 2017 NFL Draft Order: Week 9 Update

Another week as past and we are inching closer to finalizing the 2017 NFL Draft Order.

This version of my projected 2017 NFL Draft Order uses the NFL Power Rankings written by Jaclynkelli Kronemberg for a base.

In this update the San Francisco 49ers steal the No. 1 pick away from the Cleveland Browns. The Browns have shown some signs of life over the past few weeks and are starting to get healthy at the quarterback position.

They also have Corey Coleman coming back into the mix who will pair with Terrelle Pryor to give the Browns a dangerous wide receiver duo.

San Francisco has looked worse with each passing week. The biggest issue this team has is at the quarterback position where both Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert have looked awful. It doesn’t help that they have been unable to get consistent production from the wide receiver position.

The Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars are also still in the mix to land the No. 1 overall pick. Jacksonville is more talented than their record shows which means they could rattle off several more wins before the end of the season.

All  the teams in the mix for the No. 1 pick need help at the quarterback position. This is a problem because this draft just doesn’t have a quarterback worthy of coming off the board that early.
