2017 NFL Draft – Poor Man’s Versions of Top Prospects

Ryan Marcone on mid round targets for the New York Jets who have skill sets that approximate prospects commonly linked to the team in the first round…

Every year, in every draft there are a handful of blue chip prospects projected to be top picks that teams and fans view as almost “can’t miss”. The only problem is even when you have a high pick in the draft, you more than likely only have one of them and so a decision must be made. You have to choose just one of those top players.
