What if there was a 2017 Draft do over?

SB Nation’s Theme Week has us asking, “What If?”

SB Nation is currently in the middle of another “Theme Week,” and this one is all about a simple two word question.

What if?

My fellow SB Nation NFL site managers have decided a fun way to participate in the theme would be for us to run through a re-draft*, and the consensus from my fellow writers was to re-do the 2017 NFL Draft.

It wasn’t the year I would have picked to do over, but here we are.

I already have my cloud of players ready for me as I pick at three overall for the Chicago Bears, and I promise I’ll meet with every top prospect available, but I wanted to get your thoughts on what you would do if you could go back in time and make the pick.

Here’s how the draft has gone through two picks...

  1. Cleveland Browns - Patrick Mahomes
  2. San Francisco 49ers - Deshaun Watson

So with the Bears up at third overall, what would you do?

For a refresher on the players picked that year check out Pro Football Reference.

And for those of you that were curious, back in 2017 I picked Watson for the Bears in the SB Nation writer mock draft. (Some of your comments back then were fantastic!)

* Just found out that SB Nation will take this re-draft through two rounds, so this will get interesting for the Bears.
