Hub Arkush's 2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

A QB in the top 3? Right now, yes

1. Browns – Edge Rusher Myles Garrett:  There is almost never a unanimous consensus on anything in an NFL Draft, but that Myles Garrett is the best player in the draft may be one. Garrett is as close to a sure thing as a future perennial Pro Bowler as it gets and the only doubt about this choice is the belief in many quarters that the Browns front office is in over its head and may do something to outsmart themselves, kind of like pulling off a sharp trade of a fourth round pick for a second round pick and a quarterback without realizing they were going to be stuck with a $16 million guarantee. Let’s assume they get this one right.
