The 2017 NFL Draft is today. Here is a look at our final mock draft which will be updated throughout the day.
1. Cleveland Browns: DE Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
There has not been a single mock draft I released that Myles Garrett was not the top selection. There is no need to change that on draft day. It would not be surprising to see the Browns trade up for Trubisky on Thursday night, but they should not spend the first overall pick on him. Garrett is too talented to pass up, and he should be a strong option for the Browns.

2. San Francisco 49ers: S Jamal Adams, LSU
Jamal Adams is going to be an impact player at the safety position in the NFL. There is no question about it. He has the skill set to make a huge difference in the 49ers secondary, and he could be an important building block for them as they move forward. This pick is a real mystery, but Adams, Leonard Fournette, and Solomon Thomas are all options here.
3. Chicago Bears: DE Solomon Thomas, Stanford
The Bears will go in one of two directions with this pick. They will either add one of the top safeties in the class or they may go with Solomon Thomas. As of right now, Thomas looks to be the stronger option for the Bears, and with good reason.
The Bears have a big hole at their defensive end position, where Mitch Unrein is currently on top of their depth chart. Unrein is a good rotational player, but the Bears need to add a player with more upside. Thomas wreaked havoc during his bowl game and truly looks to be an unstoppable interior force for the next level.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars: RB Leonard Fournette, LSU
The Jaguars could go in a multitude of directions with this pick. Fournette is one of the best players in a class that lacks blue chip prospects. The No. 2 overall selection could be a steep price to pay, but they still have to be happy with him at this juncture. I think that the Jaguars are going to target either Fournette or a defensive lineman. They could surprise and target a quarterback like Deshaun Watson or Mitchell Trubisky, but I think Tom Coughlin will stay level headed and take a player to greatly improve their offense.
