With barely weeks to inch towards the final of College Football championship 2016-17, teams are shortlisting people and sending for "NFL draft 2017". Though few names are included, most of the players are yet to be shortlisted into the list. The possible big names in NFL draft 2017 is Mitch Trubisky of North Carolina and Tim Williams of Alabama making into the list.

The quarter back of North Carolina, Mitch Trubisky has all the probable chances to get into the NFL draft 2017 list as the best QB. He has an impressive statistics to support the possible entry, which includes 69 percent passes at 3,468 yards, 28 touchdowns and while it comes to interceptions thrown he was caught only 4 times. Interestingly, he got a first-round grade from NFL Draft Advisory panel. Since he has one more year in College Football, he might opt out and come back stronger next year.

The other player who is very likely to make the appearance this year is Tim Williams of Alabama. He too comes with a great profile having excellent statistics which is expected to make him a sought after player in the NFL. The pass rusher of Alabama has 19.5 career sacks along with 29.5 career tackles is definitely assuring his name in the NFL draft 2017. Interestingly, he was drafted last year, but he chose to stay back. Now, the NFL teams would be witnessing his fast and aggressive play.

When the bowl matches and semifinals are nearing, the NFL draft 2017 is becoming more predictable. The year saw many ups and downs though there are playoff matches that are yet to be completed. The playoff teams have more to prove in the semifinals and finals considering the fact that if they are being drafted with a brilliant performance in the playoffs, it will surely raise their graph on the list.

Interestingly, the early drafters into NFL draft 2017, Leonard Fournette of LSU Tigers and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford decided to hold back from the Bowl games. The reason for leaving College Football early is to stay healthy for the NFL Draft - a personal decision. But, is it really showcasing the professionalism and fighting spirit that should be displayed on the ground?
