12019 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

It’s that time of year again. Dynasty mock draft season — the second best part of the offseason next to your actual draft. Resident dynasty guru, Ryan Cearfoss, published his “Way Too Early” dynasty mock over a month ago, but this time I thought I’d get some help from people around the industry to get a glimpse into the minds of some experts outside of GoingFor2. Let’s meet the panel members…

2Round 1

1.01 QB Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State)

At 1.01 I grab the top QB in the draft. Haskins reminds me a lot of Cam Newton but with a higher football I.Q. Going QB with the first pick is risky but Haskins is someone to build around in real life and fantasy. He’s a good decision maker and limits turnovers which is key for any QB. -Adam @cooper_fff

1.02 RB David Montgomery (Iowa State)

The very definition of a three-down back, David Montgomery checks all of the boxes for me. Big, physical running back that has the lateral movement to make an LB miss. Last season for Iowa State, Montgomery forced 109 missed tackles (per PFF). This elusiveness translates great to the NFL. – Anthony @ZaragozaAnthony

1.03 RB Benny Snell Jr. (Kentucky)

Take Leonard Fournette, without the injury history, and along came Snell. He is not going to impress you in the passing game, but will not go down at first contact and has great vision to go with his size (5 foot 11 inches, and 222 pounds). He has enough elusiveness to hit the hole and toughness to pick up the tough yards. I took a chance with drafting him but considering my options he had the biggest upside on the right team. The Saints make a ton of sense, and his style would be perfect to replace Mark Ingram. Ravens and Eagles also are great landing spots for him to be a day 1 starter. -Hamid @ffjunkie85

1.04 WR N’Keal Harry (Arizona State)

N’Keal Harry is everything a team looks for in an Alpha receiver. He’s big, strong, fast, can win jump balls and is out of this world physical. Harry not only is a physical freak but he has multiple years of productivity to match. Harry gives any fantasy team a solid floor as well a great ceiling and is a slam dunk – Ryan @fntsyfbconnect

1.05 WR A.J. Brown (Ole Miss)

For some reason, everyone is considering Brown a slot receiver. At 6-foot-1 230 pounds, he is big enough to be a number one. He has great ability as a route runner and has the production at the college level unlike his teammate Metcalf. Brown has the highest floor of any receiver in this class and I believe he is the most NFL ready. Landing spot can be a huge factor, but I expect to see production from day 1. – Tyler M. @TPM_Sports

1.06 WR Kelvin Harmon (NC State)

2019 Dynasty Rookie Mock DraftI am going the safe route here and take Kelvin Harmon, he comes in very high on my current draft big board and has all the physical tools to be an effective receiver at the next level. The 6-foot-3 wide receiver excelled at NC State with two straight 1,000 yard seasons. Harmon is one of the most polished route runners in this years WR class with great hands and adjusts to the ball in the air very well. I take him over Metcalf here due to his clean injury sheet and he becomes a low-risk pick with extremely high upside. – Tyler R. @Reynoldst5858

1.07 WR D.K. Metcalf (Ole Miss)

I’m stunned. At 1.7, the last person I expected to be here is DK Metcalf. Metcalf has a good, but not great, breakout age (19), and a good enough, but not great, 30% dominator rating. In addition, there are serious concerns over his lack of games played in college, limited elite production, and overall health concerns. DK could be the biggest thing to hit NFL since 2014 or the biggest hype train bust in recent memory but at 1.7 it doesn’t really matter because this is as good as it gets from a value perspective. – Miguel @DynastyGuruFF

1.08 RB Josh Jacobs (Alabama)

Possibly the best running back in this class, Jacobs brings a great blend of power, speed, agility, & versatility. His skill set fits the style of today’s NFL. He has minimum wear-and-tear and will be a coveted asset at the next level. -Damian @DP_NFL

1.09 RB Darrell Henderson (Memphis)

I am very happy to take Henderson here, as he is my No. 3 RB on my board. His yards per carry average of 8.9 over the last 2 years is insane. He is also a solid receiver out of the backfield, which will translate well going to the next level. – Dan @The_DTurner86

1.10 RB Rodney Anderson (Oklahoma)

Having just finished a published mock draft less than a week ago in which I took Anderson with the 1.06, not taking him here would be misleading. I still believe in his upside and with a lot of the “sure thing” talent already off the board, I’m willing to roll the dice with Anderson at 1.10, who would be the consensus No. 1 RB if not for injury concerns. -Geoff @GeoffLambert77

1.11 TE T.J. Hockenson (Iowa)

An in-line TE that runs a 4.64 40 at 6-foot-5 250 lbs I’ll take him at this point. He will make any team better in the run game as a blocker and in the passing game. He knows how to high point the ball and is a load to bring down – Todd Kegger Fantasy Sports

1.12 QB Kyler Murray (Oklahoma)

The only question here was whether to go with an RB/WR or take the unquestioned best QB in this class. I mean it’s not even close how much better Kyler Murray is than every other QB. Get out of here with Dwayne “dump-offs” Haskins. He’s fine. But his upside is very capped with his inability to make downfield throws. Murray led the NCAA with 11.6 yards per attempt. He lit up Alabama’s vaunted defense. He likely will run a 4.4 at the combine. Yeah, he’s short. Kyler Murray has been short his entire life. It hasn’t been a problem yet. I hate the stigma against short QBs because there is no historical comparison. Short QBs never even get a chance. Murray has, by far, the highest ceiling of any QB in this class and the best shot at turning into an elite fantasy asset. In a WR class that is deep, but lacking top-end talent and a subpar RB class, give me the QB that is most likely to start right away. -Jason @JasonKatz13

3Round 2

2.01 WR Hollywood Brown (Oklahoma)

I was thrilled to land Brown at the top of round 2. At 5-foot-11 160ish pounds, Brown is an ideal slot WR at the next level. He’s rumored to run a 4.3 40 yard dash and can definitely compare to Tyreek Hill. He won’t make you miss the way Hill does but he’s a home run threat every time he touches the ball thanks to his dangerous speed. -Adam @cooper_fff

2.02 RB Devin Singletary (FAU)

Even though he measures 5-foot-9, Devin Singletary weighs over 200 pounds. That frame worked wonders at FAU the last two season. Singletary racked up 54 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons. The former Owl has the vision to work his way through tackles. He only had six receptions in 2018, Singletary will have to prove to the scouts at the combine he has the hands at the next level., but the value in the second round is awesome. – Anthony @ZaragozaAnthony

2.03 RB Damien Harris (Alabama)

Don’t let the lack of workload fool you, in 2018, with just 126 regular season carries, he averaged 6.1 yards per carry, which totaled 771 yards and 7 touchdowns. If that is not impressive enough, since becoming the No. 1 running back for the Crimson Tide, he has averaged 7.1, 7.4 and 6.1 YPC in each of the past three seasons. At 5 foot 11, 214 pounds, with the type of efficiency he has with the touches he gets, to go with the elite vision, strength and the capability of absorbing hits while running, I love the upside he brings in the second round. -Hamid @ffjunkie85

2.04 WR Deebo Samuel (South Carolina)

Deebo Samuel is a well rounded offensive weapon at the receiver position. In college, he was used all over the field in a variety of ways. As a polished route runner with a ton of explosion allows him to beat opposing corners, but, it’s his ability to turn into a running back with the ball in his hands that makes him intriguing. Deebo could have an impact similar to what DJ Moore did last year – Ryan @fntsyfbconnect

2.05 WR Hakeem Butler (Iowa State)

2019 Dynasty Rookie Mock DraftHakeem Butler is a 6-foot-6 WR who has the strides to eat up space in a vertical offense. He forces corners to give him space which allows for him to break back on curls and frequently get open. He also has the ability to be an elite red zone receiver. I expect Butler to have a high floor throughout his career in the NFL, even though he may never be a true WR1. – Tyler M. @TPM_Sports

2.06 RB Elijah Holyfield (Georgia)

I am honestly surprised to get Holyfield here, on tape I see a running back with no fear of contact who hits the holes hard. He is a bruising running back with good vision and a strong ability to make cuts. Definitely not the fastest running back in this year’s draft but can absolutely beat up the opposition for four quarters and can be an efficient NFL back that can be a goal-line nightmare for the opposition.– Tyler R. @Reynoldst5858

2.07 RB Miles Sanders (Penn State)

My favorite 2nd round RB. He’s super underrated due to being stuck behind Saquon Barkley most of his college career. If he put together a solid combine and lands himself a decent spot to compete for the 1st string job, we could have a workhorse back here. To land a potential three-down back in round 2 is just stealing. Miguel @DynastyGuruFF

2.08 TE Noah Fant (Iowa)

6-foot-5 241 with the talent and speed to be a matchup nightmare. Solid route running paired with his athletic ability makes him an intriguing option. Offers a dangerous red-zone option that has a nose for the endzone. 30 games played with 19 touchdowns. -Damian @DP_NFL

2.09 WR Emanuel Hall (Missouri)

Hall here is a great find. At 6-foot-3, he has the size to win the fight over CBs in the NFL. His best asset though is his speed, which he used to great effect in college, averaging over 24 yards per catch at Mizzou. He has WR2 upside in the league, and a great find towards the bottom of the second round. – Dan @The_DTurner86

2.10 TE Irv Smith Jr. (Alabama)

Smith Jr. is the third TE off the board, but I think he has a clearer path to starting right away at the next level than either Hockenson or Fant. Why? He is an elite run blocker and while fantasy owners don’t get points for blocks, it is much harder to score fantasy points while sitting on the sideline. His run blocking will get him on the field early and once he adjusts to the speed of the NFL game, his ceiling is enormous after averaging 16.3 yards per catch in his last season at Alabama. I know it’s not apples-to-apples, but that YPC would rank him higher than Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks and Robbie Anderson from 2018. -Geoff @GeoffLambert77

2.11 WR Gary Jennings Jr. (West Virginia)

6-foot-2 215 runs a low 4.4 40 runs good routes with room to improve. He is the most overlooked WR in this class as of right now but everyone will know his name after the combine. He makes QBs look good. He catches everything and knows how to create separation. Will produce in PPR from Day 1 and can easily be picked in the 2nd round though not as low as I just got him. Todd Kegger Fantasy Sports

2.12 RB Trayveon Williams (Texas A&M)

It’s impossible to know how things will shake out in terms of landing spot, which is immensely important, but wow, I just grabbed the most talented RB in this class with the last pick of the second round. None of the RBs are all that exciting, but Trayveon Williams, at just 21 years old, is the best of the bunch. He’s coming off a 19 touchdown season where the undersized back proved he could handle a full workload with 271 carries. Williams is also a good pass catcher, posting a very respectable 8% target share. Without knowing landing spot, I need to go based purely on talent and hope the rest falls into place. -Jason @JasonKatz13

4Round 3

3.01 RB L.J. Scott (Michigan State)

As an avid Michigan St fan, grabbing LJ Scott here is perfect. Some will sleep on him due to his injury-riddled senior season but don’t let that get in the way of seeing Scott’s true potential… a bell-cow back. Scott is a tough to bring down RB who always fights for that extra yard and at 6-foot-1 225, good luck taking him down on the first try. -Adam @cooper_fff

3.02 RB Mike Webster (Ohio State)

Mike Weber looked like a star in the making after his 2016 season at Ohio State, but injuries derailed some of the magic. Nonetheless, Weber is a bruising back that can be the thunder for most backfields in the NFL. Not a pass catcher, Weber makes that up with his pass protection. In the third round, he is worth the pick. – Anthony @ZaragozaAnthony

3.03 WR Riley Ridley (Georgia)

When looking at wide receivers, there are two skillsets that I focus on, pass catching away from the body and route running — Ridley checks both these boxes. I have him ranked much higher than most. At 6-foot-2 200 pounds, with limited work on Georgia’s offense, he was still able to catch 9 touchdowns, using his strongest skillset (footwork) to beat his man in the red zone. Think about Alshon Jeffery in college, who only had one truly great season at South Carolina, and was of similar built. If Ridley can get to 210 pounds and get drafted on the right team, he has Alshon Jeffery upside, and, in the third round, I am happy to take that. -Hamid @ffjunkie85

3.04 RB Justice Hill (Oklahoma State)

When you think about Justice Hill you think about speed and explosion. The Oklahoma State running back posses the ability to score any time he touches the ball which gives him immediate value at the next level. With receiving ability to go with it, Hill could be one of the better change of pace backs in the draft – Ryan @fntsyfbconnect

3.05 QB Drew Lock (Mizzou)

2019 Dynasty Rookie Mock DraftIf Drew Lock is still available in the 3rd of any league I am buying no matter what. Lock has a great chance to be an NFL starter from day one and with that comes fantasy points. I believe that Lock has a much higher ceiling than Dwayne Haskins (1.01?) and has a better chance of making it at the NFL level than our 1.12 Kyler Murray. His combination of a strong arm and athletic ability will allow him the chance to be successful in the NFL  –especially if he can fine-tune his game slightly.– Tyler M. @TPM_Sports

3.06 RB Bryce Love (Stanford)

In the third round, I feel like it is okay to finally go with a riskier pick, so I am going to go with 5-foot-9 196 pound Bryce Love here. He has not been able to handle a full workload in his two years of college as the feature back because he does not have a large frame, but, with the right fit in the draft, he can become a solid NFL back. He has great elusiveness and speed which makes him a threat to go the distance at any time. He needs work but I love some Love if I am able to make a risky pick this late in rookie drafts.– Tyler R. @Reynoldst5858

3.07 Ashton Dulin (Malone)

At this point in the draft, it’s all dart throws. So why not throw one with massive upside if it hits? Meet Ashton Dulin, he’s a Small school WR out of Malone University, he’s 6-2 210 and, from the rumors we’ve heard, should run in the mid 4.4’s at the combine. He also posted an insane 61 percent dominator rating and was a damn good kick returner too. Now he’s likely to go UDFA route. Miguel @DynastyGuruFF

3.08 WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (Stanford)

6-foot-3 220 lbs Arcega-Whiteside is a big-bodied target that quarterbacks will love. This past season he caught 63 passes, 1,059 yards & 14 TDs. He knows how to put a defender on his hip and box them out — especially in the red zone. He plays similar to a power forward in basketball — muscling his way to rebounds and alley-oops. -Damian @DP_NFL

3.09 WR Greg Dortch (Wake Forest)

Dortch was an elite returner in college at Wake Forest, a skill that will translate immediately to the NFL. He is smaller in size at 5-foot-9, but he can carve out a role as a slot receiver. He is oft-injured, which does remain a concern, but when healthy he could be a great asset to an NFL team. – Dan @The_DTurner86

3.10 WR Parris Campbell (Ohio State)

After being sniped by Dan one pick before me for Dortch, I went with Campbell who has some serious flaws in his game but can flat out fly. Speed kills in the NFL and if he is able to work of some of his issues, like beating press coverage off the LOS and running sharper routes, he has huge upside for a late third round pick, unfortunately, his floor is Cordarelle Patterson-ish. -Geoff @GeoffLambert77

3.11 WR Andy Isabella (UMass)

At 5-foot-9 186 lbs and running a 4.39 40, he caught 102 passes for 1,698 yards and 13 TDs this past season including 15 catches for 219 yards and 2 TDs against Georgia — so he can perform against better competition. At the end of the 3rd, I’ll take a flyer on him and see what I get. –Todd Kegger Fantasy Sports

3.12 WR Jamal Custis (Syracuse) 

It’s extremely unlikely that any rookie pick this late will have any value so why not gamble on a 6-foot-5 monster with incredible downfield ball skills? Jamal Custis is not without his flaws and is going to need some seasoning for sure, but the raw talent is there and you can’t teach “big.” I’d like to see more of what Custis can do on shorter patterns, but even if he ends up not panning out, it’s all about upside and Custis is worth a shot. -Jason @JasonKatz13
