Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Ladd McConkey, Xavier Legette, Michael Penix Jr (2024 Fantasy Football)

Landing spots change everything.

We all have preconceived notions about prospects before the NFL Draft. Some of those notions are completely upended when we discover that teams were higher or lower on those prospects than we were. We’ll also have to adjust if a player lands in an especially desirable or undesirable situation.

Soon after Roger Goodell steps to the podium amidst a chorus of boos, we’ll have to start tweaking our dynasty rookie rankings. But for now, our appraisals of these prospects are pretty much set.

Let’s run through a four-round superflex dynasty rookie mock draft, leaning on predraft priors. Here are all four rounds of my picks. Below we’ll dive into a few notable dynasty rookies. And be sure to practice for your league and run your own mocks with our free draft simulator.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Superflex Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

1.11 — QB Michael Penix Jr., Washington

With so many QB-starved teams in the NFL, Penix is a good bet to be drafted in the first round, possibly inside the top 20. The left-hander has a rocket arm and is good at avoiding sacks. Penix might have been a top-10 pick if not for a concerning medical history that includes two right ACL tears. For fantasy managers, Penix offers attractive passing upside but not a great deal of rushing potential.

1.12 — WR Ladd McConkey, Georgia

Ignore the stats that McConkey posted in a run-heavy Georgia program that often pulled starters early in its frequent blowout victories. McConkey is a phenomenal route-runner who completely clowned defenders during Senior Bowl practices. His NFL-readiness gives him a high fantasy floor, though the ceiling might be limited for a sub-200-pound slot receiver.

2.11 — WR Xavier Legette, South Carolina

One of the tougher evaluations in this year’s WR class, Legette is an imposing physical specimen who measures 6-1, 220 pounds, posted a 9.9 Relative Athletic Score, and turned in a 1,255-yard season in his final season with the Gamecocks. But Legette did that in his fifth year of college football and never had more than 167 receiving yards in any of his four previous seasons. Draft capital will weigh heavily on where Legette lands in rookie drafts.

2.12 — RB Braelon Allen, Wisconsin

Allen turned 20 in January and will be the youngest player in this draft class, and yet he’s had more 100-yard rushing games in college (20) than any other back in the class. Allen is 6-1, 235 pounds and could be an early-down/goal-line hammer for whichever team drafts him. But Allen isn’t much of a pass catcher, and he doesn’t always run with as much power as his Incredible Hulk physique would suggest.
