2017 NFL Draft Big Board: Day 1

Who are the top 50 waiting for their call?

The 2017 NFL Draft Big Board has some premier college football names at the top.

By the end of this evening, 32 names will be off of it. Before that can happen, the NFL teams have their list of targets which will be adjusted on the fly.

Our list isn’t going to end up in anybody’s war room, but imagine if it did? Might be worth a few more hits on the ol’ analytics tracker. We rank the top 50 players on the board entering tonight’s action. With any luck, all 32 first-round picks are on it.

To address this up front: we are dropping Gareon Conley down the board. You will not see him in our top 50. In yesterday’s top 32 mock draft, we had Conley going in the middle of the round. However, now that the fallout from the sexual assault allegations have made the rounds, it’s a problem. Whether true or not, this story came out at a time in which it could do maximum damage to Conley’s draft prospects.

Given the NFL’s nasty domestic violence problem, the team that drafts him in the first round, if anyone, is going to catch hell for it. Conley is a first-round talent with a major character issue now upon him. This makes him radioactive in the first round and possibly beyond.
