Geoff Nichols Top 5 By Position 1.0

At long last I’ve made it through at least the top 10 players within each position group which allowed me to rank the top 5 prospects within each for the 2017 draft. For Vikings fans this may end up being more valuable than any mock draft since it will give an idea on players who may slip into the 2nd round. I will offer an updated version the week of the draft.

Two things to remember when looking through this listing. First, assume that players are system fits for the team who are drafting them. Second, I have made some slight adjustments for off-field/personal/injury. These players are designated with a (*).
