Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 4 Rounds, Superflex (2024 Fantasy Football)

The 2024 NFL Draft is less than seven weeks away. The NFL Combine is in the rearview mirror, with pro days and private workouts the only thing left on the pre-draft circuit. While plenty will change between today and April 25, let’s dive into a 12-team, superflex, PPR dynasty rookie mock draft.

2024 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 12-Team, Superflex, PPR

Round 1

Pick 1.01 – Caleb Williams (QB – USC)

Despite some in the media saying the Chicago Bears should draft Jayden Daniels with the first overall pick, Williams is a near clock to be the top selection. The former USC star turned some heads at the NFL Combine with his decision against having a medical evaluation, saving that for only the few teams he believes can draft him. Many have compared him to Patrick Mahomes. Even if he is only 75% as good as the superstar quarterback, Williams is a slam-dunk 1.01 pick in superflex rookie drafts.

Pick 1.02 – Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

While some NFL mock drafts have moved Harrison down to the second wide receiver selected, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be the first non-quarterback pick in superflex rookie drafts. The former Ohio State star didn’t partake in the NFL Combine, turning off some scouts. Yet, the superstar had very little to gain by working out in Indianapolis. Despite losing C.J. Stroud to the NFL, Harrison had his second consecutive season with over 1,200 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in 2023. He is potentially a Hall of Fame talent.

Pick 1.03 – Jayden Daniels (QB – LSU)

Daniels has risen up NFL draft boards and dynasty rookie rankings over the past several months. Many believe he will be the second overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Therefore, no one should be surprised if the former LSU star is the second selection in some superflex rookie drafts. Daniels had a breakout final college season, totaling 3,812 passing yards and 40 touchdowns compared to only four interceptions. However, his rushing ability makes him a superstar for fantasy players, totaling 1,134 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Pick 1.04 – Drake Maye (QB – UNC)

Some believe Maye’s NFL Draft stock is starting to slip. We’ve even seen some experts in the industry say he could get drafted behind J.J. McCarthy. However, that seems unlikely. Maye wasn’t the rushing threat that Jayden Daniels or Caleb Williams were in college. Yet, he can make plays with his legs, totaling over 1,145 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns in his final two years. While his passing numbers took a hit in 2023, Maye lost several key players to the NFL.

Pick 1.05 – Malik Nabers (WR – LSU)

Unfortunately, Nabers has to share a draft class with Marvin Harrison Jr. Any other year, the former LSU star would be the first wide receiver selected in the NFL Draft and rookie drafts. He was outstanding in 2023, totaling 14 touchdowns on 89 receptions while leading the country in receiving yards (1,569). Nabers is built for today’s NFL, with speed and an ability to make plays at all three levels. Many have compared him to DJ Moore. Hopefully, the rookie doesn’t have the same bad luck with quarterbacks.

Pick 1.06 – Rome Odunze (WR – Washington)

The former Washington star is one of my favorite prospects in this year’s draft class. Odunze is in the same boat as Malik Nabers. He would have been the No. 1 wide receiver in every dynasty rookie rankings any other year except this one. Odunze took part in the NFL Combine, unlike the other two elite wide receivers in the draft class. After totaling over 1,600 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns last season, I can’t wait to see him play on Sundays.

Pick 1.07 – J.J. McCarthy (QB – Michigan)

McCarthy has been the biggest riser on NFL Draft boards over the past several weeks. After initially being a potential late first-round NFL Draft pick, the former Michigan star is a near top-10 lock. Furthermore, some experts believe he could get picked ahead of Drake Maye in April. While a few in the fantasy football community are skeptical about McCarthy, his NFL Draft capital will lock him into a mid-first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts. The only question remaining with him is whether or not he will start Week 1.

Pick 1.08 – Brock Bowers (TE – Georgia)

Many in the fantasy football community will refuse to draft Bowers after getting burned by Kyle Pitts a few years ago. However, that would be a mistake unless the former Georgia star ends up in Pittsburgh with Arthur Smith. Bowers is an elite prospect who dominated defenses as a freshman in 2021, totaling over 880 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. While the star tight end might not be a top-10 NFL Draft pick, he should be a top-eight lock in superflex rookie drafts.

Pick 1.09 – Troy Franklin (WR – Oregon)

Oregon had one of the most explosive and dangerous offensive in college football in 2023, with Bo Nix under center. However, the star quarterback had reliable weapons, led by Franklin. The former Ducks receiver had a career year in 2023, totaling 81 receptions for 1,383 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. He can challenge defenses downfield and is a solid route runner. While Franklin didn’t have an ideal performance at the NFL Combine, he still should be a late first-round rookie draft pick.

Pick 1.10 – Brian Thomas Jr. (WR – LSU)

While Malik Nabers is the more talked about LSU wide receiver, Thomas will join him as a first-round NFL Draft pick in April. He locked himself into being the fourth wide receiver off the board after an impressive performance at the NFL Combine. The former LSU star had a productive 2023 season despite being the team’s No. 2 wide receiver, totaling 68 receptions for 1,177 receiving yards while leading the country with 17 touchdowns. Thomas has excellent speed and can win in the 50-50 type situations.

Pick 1.11 – Xavier Worthy (WR – Texas)

The star of the 2024 NFL Combine was Worthy. The former Longhorns star broke John Ross’ 40-yard dash record, posting a 4.21 after running a 4.25 on his first attempt. While some will argue he can’t play in the NFL at his 165-pound weight at the NFL Combine, Worthy can add some weight and remain explosive. Unlike most speedy wide receivers, the former Longhorn isn’t all about explosiveness. He is an excellent route runner whose “issue with drops” is overblown.

Pick 1.12 – Ladd McConkey (WR – Georgia)

Several wide receivers improved their draft stock at the NFL Combine. While McConkey didn’t have a highlight reel run, he ran much faster than many expected, posting a 4.39 40-yard dash. The former Georgia star’s draft stock was heading in the right direction following an impressive performance during the Senior Bowl. McConkey kept that momentum going during the NFL Combine, displaying excellent route running ability, quick feet, and hands during the on-the-field drills. McConkey could sneak into Day 1 of the NFL Draft and the first round of rookie drafts.

Round 2

Pick 2.01 – Adonai Mitchell (WR – Texas)

While everyone wants to talk about Xavier Worthy’s record-breaking 40-yard dash, his teammate had the better performance. Mitchell ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at 205 pounds. While he finished 0.13 seconds behind Worthy, Mitchell ran the time at 40 pounds heavier. Furthermore, the former Longhorn is an athletic freak, capable of taking the top off a defense while boxing out defenders in the red zone. It will be difficult to keep Mitchell out of the first round of rookie drafts if he is a Day 1 selection.

Pick 2.02 – Bo Nix (QB – Oregon)

This year’s quarterback draft class is one of the best in recent memory. Nix is a potential first-round NFL Draft pick and could be a Week 1 starter as a rookie. While he struggled at Auburn, the quarterback was outstanding the past two years at Oregon, completing 74.9% of his pass attempts for 8,101 yards and 74 touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has compared him to Jalen Hurts. While that is a heavy expectation, Nix could meet it.

Pick 2.03 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – Texas)

The fantasy football community got spoiled with the past two running back draft classes. There likely will not be a running back worthy of a first-round rookie draft pick for the first time in years. Yet, Brooks has the best case to be a first-round rookie pick despite coming off a torn ACL if he lands in an appealing situation. I would love to see him in Green Bay, playing behind Aaron Jones for a year before taking over as the lead running back in 2025.

Pick 2.04 – Trey Benson (RB – Florida State)

Benson had an impressive performance at the NFL Combine. He ran a 4.39 40-yard dash, the third fastest among running backs, at 216 pounds. The former Florida State star had back-to-back seasons with over 900 rushing yards and at least nine touchdowns to end his college career. Many believe Benson and Jonathon Brooks are in a two-man race to be the first running back picked in the NFL Draft and selected in rookie drafts. Therefore, it makes sense that they are back-to-back picks in this mock.

Pick 2.05 – Michael Penix Jr. (QB – Washington)

I was surprised to see Penix last this long in the mock draft simulator. The former Washington star has medical concerns, seeing all four years at Indiana ending with a season-ending injury. However, he has stayed healthy during his time at Washington, putting up massive numbers. Penix had over 9,500 passing yards and 67 touchdowns in two years at Washington. While landing spot and draft capital will play a significant role in his rookie draft value, Penix could become a draft-day steal for fantasy players.

Pick 2.06 – Keon Coleman (WR – Florida State)

After two years at Michigan State, Coleman transferred to Florida State. He became a star and played a massive role in the team’s undefeated 2023 regular season. The star wide receiver had 11 receiving touchdowns despite playing with multiple quarterbacks. By comparison, Coleman totaled eight scores in his two seasons at Michigan State. Unfortunately, he ran only a 4.61 40-yard dash, finishing second to last among wide receivers. While that might cost him on draft night, Coleman is a steal at this point in rookie drafts.

Pick 2.07 – Xavier Legette (WR – South Carolina)

The former South Carolina star had a breakout 2023 season, totaling 71 receptions for 1,255 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. By comparison, Legette had 42 receptions for 423 receiving yards and five touchdowns over the first four years of his college career. While some are worried he was a one-year wonder, Legette will likely be a top-40 NFL Draft pick. He ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, the same as Anthony Gould but at 47 pounds heavier.

Pick 2.08 – Roman Wilson (WR – Michigan)

Wilson turned some heads at the Senior Bowl, giving off a similar vibe to Michael Wilson last year. He was Michigan’s top receiving threat in 2023. The explosive receiver led the team in receptions (48), receiving yards (789), and touchdowns (12), accounting for half of Michigan’s receiving scores. Some mock drafts have Wilson coming off the board in the second round. He could be a post-NFL Draft riser, depending on his landing spot.

Pick 2.09 – Bucky Irving (RB – Oregon)

While the running back draft class lacks a clear-cut pecking order, I was surprised to see Irving be the third one off the board in this simulation. The former Oregon star has never had 190 rushing attempts in a season. Yet, he is coming off back-to-back years with over 1,000 rushing yards and a 6.3 or higher yards-per-attempt average. Some have concerns about his frame, weighing 192 pounds at the NFL Combine. However, Irving has the quickness to have a meaningful role at the next level.

Pick 2.10 – MarShawn Lloyd (RB – USC)

Many in the fantasy football community are big fans of Lloyd’s. The former South Carolina running back transferred to USC before the 2023 season. While he didn’t put up massive numbers, Lloyd did set career highs in rushing yards (820) and yards per attempt (7.1) while matching his career best in touchdowns (nine). The 2024 running back class is a wide-open race, meaning Lloyd could get drafted earlier than many expected. Draft capital and landing spot will play a massive role in his fantasy value.

Pick 2.11 – Jaylen Wright (RB – Tennessee)

The running back position lacks a clear-cut top pecking order, meaning fantasy players could see some unexpected curve balls during their rookie drafts. Wright coming off the board during this mock draft simulation is surprising. Yet, it’s excellent because it could happen in an actual rookie draft. The former Tennessee star had an impressive at the NFL Combine, running the second-fastest 40-yard dash at 210 pounds while posting the second-best broad jump for a running back ever.

Pick 2.12 – Javon Baker (WR – UCF)

Baker has seen his draft stock improve as the pre-draft process has progressed. He started his career at Alabama before transferring to UCF, totaling 108 receptions for 1,935 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns over the past two years. While his numbers during the athletic testing weren’t eye-popping, Baker impressed during the on-the-field drills. Some have compared the UCF star to Chris Godwin. If he goes on Day 2 of the NFL Draft, Baker belongs in the mid-to-late second-round conversation during rookie drafts.

Round 3

  • Pick 3.01 – Ja’Lynn Polk (WR – Washington)
  • Pick 3.02 – Blake Corum (RB – Michigan)
  • Pick 3.03 – Ja’Tavion Sanders (TE – Texas)

  • Pick 3.10 – Ray Davis (RB – Kentucky)
  • Pick 3.11 – Johnny Wilson (WR – Florida State)
  • Pick 3.12 – Malik Washington (WR – Virginia)

Round 4

  • Pick 4.01 – Jalen McMillan (WR – Washington)
  • Pick 4.02 – Cade Stover (TE – Ohio State)
  • Pick 4.03 – Jamari Thrash (WR – Louisville)

  • Pick 4.05 – Joe Milton III (QB – Tennessee)
  • Pick 4.06 – Kendall Milton (RB – Georgia)
  • Pick 4.07 – Will Shipley (RB – Clemson)
  • Pick 4.08 – Ben Sinnott (TE – Kansas State)
  • Pick 4.09 – Jacob Cowing (WR – Arizona)
  • Pick 4.10 – Isaiah Davis (RB – South Dakota State)
  • Pick 4.11 – Kimani Vidal (RB – Troy)
  • Pick 4.12 – Dylan Laube (RBNew Hampshire)
