Haason ReddickThere are some prospects moving up the draft board and some moving down as we near closer to the start of the first round on April 27. As a result, a number of changes have been made since my initial first round mock draft for 2017.

Moving up are Haason Reddick (OLB, Temple), Gareon Conley (CB, Ohio State), Jordan Willis (DE, Kansas State) to Round 1. Meanwhile, T. J. Watt (DE/OLB, Wisconsin), Pat Mahomes (QB, Texas Tech) appear likely to come off the board no later than the top of round two if they do not slip into the first day. In particular, Reddick appears to have made a meteoric rise up the draft board.

Moving down are Teez Tabor (CB, Florida), who ran in the 4.7 range at his pro day, Malik McDowell (DT, Michigan State), whose talent is not questioned but his technique and desire is in doubt, and Tim Williams (EDGE/OLB, Alabama), a dynamic pass rusher who may not provide any other versatility. All three should go no later than the early to middle parts of the second round.
