NFL Mock Draft 2017: The Phinsider community begins their projections

NFL: 2016 NFL Draft Chuck Anderson-USA TODAY Sports

The Phinsider Community Mock Draft for 2017 officially kicked off last night, with the first five selections being made. Our community mock draft is an annual event here on The Phinsider, with readers making up the majority of the “general managers” making selections across the league.

Below, you will find the first five picks, with the team, the community member who made the pick, and the selection itself. This year, I am not including explanations of the picks made here in the article with the picks. Instead, I have asked that, if a member feels like they want to include an explanation or discuss their pick, they put together a FanPost, which you can find over on the sidebar on the main page of the site.

Here are the first five picks:

1 - Cleveland Browns - Whippets2 - Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

2 - San Francisco 49ers - comfortablynumb1105 - Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

3 - Chicago Bears - BTDOLFAN1 - Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

4 - Jacksonville Jaguars -small balls - Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

5 - Tennessee Titans - bring back the whalers - Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

What are your thoughts on these picks? Is there an explanation you would like to see? Who will the New York Jets select with the sixth pick?
