This article features seven players who could see their draft stock rise and possibly move up into the top 100 of the 2017 NFL Draft.

It’s been just under a month since we completed the 2016 NFL draft. In the top 100, only four running backs heard their name called. Next year’s draft class could see four running backs taken in the first round with the likes of Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette being eligible. The 2017 class stretches much deeper than the 2016 class did and it features a wider variety as well as ,more potential for NFL starters.

This article features seven players who could see their draft stock rise and possibly move up into the top 100 of the 2017 NFL Draft.
