The NFL is preparing to begin its 2017 draft by projecting the first round of the draft, including the picks of quarterback Marcus Mariota and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
Read moreHere are the first two NFL Draft projects:The first project begins with Mariota.
He will be the top overall pick.
It has been widely assumed that Mariota is going to be the pick of the Bills, which would be the first franchise to draft a quarterback since the franchise moved to Buffalo in 1970.
The Bills have drafted six players with the first overall pick, including Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor, while the Bills also had three players selected in the first three rounds of the last two drafts.
The second project starts with Clowney, the former Alabama star and Clemson standout who has been viewed as the top quarterback prospect in this year’s draft.
The Bills drafted the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft in the second round with Clownay.
It was widely assumed by some that the Bills would draft Clowney with the 10th pick in this draft.
However, the Bills traded up and selected LSU offensive tackle Taylor Lewan with the 16th pick.
The next four picks in the draft were either wide receivers Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry and Kenny Britt, or running backs Ezekiel Elliott, Devonta Freeman and Leonard Fournette.
The third project begins after the Bills took Clowney and Watkins.
It is widely assumed Clowney will be drafted by the Cleveland Browns, who will pick in a top-five draft, which means they will select the top pick.
However, Clowney was not selected by the Browns, and he was later waived by the team.
The Browns drafted Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin in the fifth round with the No. 20 pick.
The fourth project begins when the Bills selected a quarterback with the top five picks in both the draft and the NFL draft.
This project is a little more complicated than the others because it is based on the draft order and not the draft.
The project will begin with Clownsey.
The fifth project begins as soon as Clowney is selected.
It will not include the third and fourth projects.
