LSU Tigers Expected To Go Early In NFL Draft

The 2017 NFL Draft gets underway tonight with the first round in Philadelphia.

It will be the first draft to be held outdoors, with a stage erected on the famous "Rocky" steps outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Barring a trade, the Cleveland Browns will be first on the clock with the top pick.

The Browns also have the 12th overall pick via the Eagles.

The San Francisco 49ers select second, followed by the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Tennessee Titans have the fifth overall pick after last year's trade with the Los Angeles Rams, as well as their own selection at #18.

Rounds two and three take place on Friday, with rounds four through seven wrapping up the draft on Saturday. The draft was held in Chicago the last two years. 

If they don't trade down, the Browns are expected to take Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the first pick.

Other players projected to go early include LSU safety Jamal Adams, LSU running back Leonard Fournette, Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore and Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas.

Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley won't attend tonight as he's being investigated for an alleged sexual assault.

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon is expected to be a first-round pick despite having to publicly apologize after video surfaced of him punching a female student in 2014 after she shoved him.
