Best available players in the 2017 NFL Draft

After three rounds, there is still some very good talent available in the 2017 NFL Draft.

With three rounds and 106 picks down in the 2017 NFL Draft there is still quite a bit of talent left on the board.

Of course, that talent is clearly in the eye of the beholder, but after starting with 110 players on my target board, the Arizona Cardinals drafted two with first round grades, and a player I did not watch, but Justin Higdon had on his 75 man target board.

Now, Justin and I are clearly biased, but to see two boards with less than 130 players combined, get two first round talents and a fourth round talent late in the third is impressive.

What is left on my board?

Not much, 41 players, a lot of wide receivers and safeties, which I spent most of my time on along with linebackers.

The most intriguing two prospects on the board... Virginia Tech’s Bucky Hodges and Iowa’s Jaleel Johnson, both would be fits with the Arizona Cardinals at 115.
