MOCK DRAFT RUBBISH If you are really desperate for something NFL to listen to during February, you can suffer the insufferable Mel Kiper on ESPN trying to prove how he can name every draft-eligible player.  But his mock drafts, as any are right now, are a total waste of time.  There are two potential first round QBS, Mitch Trubisky and Deshaun Watson but neither are the outstanding prospects Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota were two years ago.  There are several QB-hungry teams such as San Francisco, Cleveland, Buffalo and the Jets.   There are several potential QB moves in free agency/salary cap cuts such as Mike Glennon, Tony Romo and Jay Cutler.  So until these are resolved, how do you know which teams would potentially draft a QB and therefore how can you predict anything in the top 10 in the 2017 draft?
