The top 30 picks in the 2017 NFL Draft are now set. The Green Bay Packers own the 29th overall pick after falling to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Conference Championship game. The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game and now own the 30th pick, thanks to having a better record this season than the Packers.
Football is now done for the AFC North this season and the Browns hold the 1st and 12th picks, while the Bengals have the No. 9 pick, the Ravens have the 16th pick, and the Steelers round out the group with the third to last pick in the first round.
The Patriots and Falcons are the only two remaining teams and will face off in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5 at 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX. The loser will take claim to the 31st overall pick and the winner will get the honor of picking 32nd in the 2017 NFL Draft. Everyone wants that honor, but will it be Mohamed Sanu’s Falcons or Matt Lengel’s Patriots who get to flaunt a Super Bowl ring for their work this season?
