Devy Fantasy Football Mock Draft

1.01 Caleb Williams (QB – USC)

Height 6’1″
Weight 220
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Caleb Williams possesses every trait you look for in an elite quarterback prospect. He has dual-threat ability, a rocket arm and a jaw-dropping ability to improvise and extend plays. Williams displayed these traits all season as the former Oklahoma QB took home the Heisman Trophy in his first season with USC. Cue the Patrick Mahomes comps.

1.02 Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

Height 6’4″
Weight 205
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Can we change the draft eligibility rule? If he were eligible, Marvin Harrison Jr. would likely be the first WR selected in this year’s NFL Draft. As you would expect from the son of a Hall of Famer, he excels at every aspect of the WR position. Pair that with his sizeable frame; you have an incredible NFL prospect.

1.03 Drake Maye (QB – North Carolina)

Height 6’5″
Weight 220
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Drake Maye looks like your old-school pocket passer with his 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame, but he is far from that, as he racked up nearly 700 yards on the ground in 2022. He has great command of his offense and showcases excellent arm talent while excelling at throwing to all levels of the field. With the athleticism in his toolbox alongside his gifted throwing ability, he profiles as a first-round NFL QB.

1.04 TreVeyon Henderson (RB – Ohio State)

Height 5’10”
Weight 210
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Once mentioned in the same breath as Bijan Robinson, TreVeyon Henderson’s injury-plagued 2022 season has dropped him from the God-tier he occupied in the preseason. However, he is still the top RB in devy. He has elite speed and the perfect RB frame at 5-foot-10, 210 pounds; don’t overthink it.

1.05 Brock Bowers (TE – Georgia)

Height 6’4″
Weight 230
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

A bit undersized to be taken this high, but the production is too much to ignore. Brock Bowers has been an animal in the SEC, dominating since he arrived on campus as a true freshman en route to back-to-back National Championships for Georgia. He’s an elite receiver disguised as a tight end, an absolute fantasy football dream.

1.06 Raheim Sanders (RB – Arkanas)

Height 6’2″
Weight 225
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

A 225-pound back with the nickname “Rocket” should tell you all you need to know about Raheim Sanders; he is big, fast and explosive. He packs more than enough size to handle a workload and punish defenders, but also the speed and explosion to pull away from tacklers for house calls. Throw in his 28 grabs in the receiving game, and you’ve got a dangerous player.

1.07 Nicholas Singleton (RB – Penn State)

Height 6’0″
Weight 220
NFL Draft Eligible 2025

Nicholas Singleton was the top-ranked back in his class and delivered on that ranking as a true freshman, going over 1,000 yards on the ground. Singleton is an elusive athlete with elite track speed and tremendous cutting ability. He needs to contribute more in the receiving game, but all the tools are there.

1.08 Quinshon Judkins (RB – Ole Miss)

Height 5’11”
Weight 210
NFL Draft Eligible 2025

Quinshon Judkins has to be the freshman surprise of the year, furthermore, the most significant breakout in all of college football. The 46th-ranked RB and three-star recruit in the 247Sports composite rankings, Judkins ran for 1,567 yards in the SEC as a true freshman. He did that while sharing the backfield and out-playing NFL prospect Zach Evans. He looked unstoppable in Lane Kiffin’s offense and will be prominently featured in 2023.

1.09 Emeka Egbuka (WR – Ohio State)

Height 6’1″
Weight 205
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Overshadowed by his teammate Harrison Jr., Emeka Egbuka is quietly the second-best receiver in college football. Smaller and shiftier than his teammate, Egbuka excelled all over the field, amassing over 1,200 total yards and 12 TD. Egbuka is what the NFL is looking for in a slot receiver and should build on his already impressive resumé in 2023.

1.10 Will Shipley (RB – Clemson)

Height 5’11”
Weight 200
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Will Shipley will rightfully get placed into the “receiving back” bucket, but he is no slouch in the running game. He is a great athlete with a balanced package of skills, and yes, he had 38 receptions in 2022. Watch a Clemson game; he will pop off the film as a “dude.” He will be featured in the Tigers’ offense in 2023 and should earn quality NFL Draft capital.

1.11 Braelon Allen (RB – Wisconsin)

Height 6’2″
Weight 238
NFL Draft Eligible 2024

Braelon Allen is huge. A throwback to the days of big, bullying runningbacks, Allen checks in at almost 240 pounds at 6-foot-2 and loves contact. Allen wears down defenders with his physical style and possesses enough speed to pull away when he gets rolling. He looks like he’s in the NFL right now and will be very soon.

1.12 Branson Robinson (RB – Georgia)

Height 5’10”
Weight 220
NFL Draft Eligible 2025

Speaking of players that look like they are already in the NFL, enter Branson Robinson. Robinson scored two touchdowns in Georgia’s National Championship victory over TCU but had a quiet freshman year outside of that. What he does have is great size and athleticism, and he plays running back at Georgia. Kendall Milton also returns for the Bulldogs, but Robinson is a lot more talented and should lead Georgia’s backfield in 2023.
