Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Rome Odunze, Ricky Pearsall, Keon Coleman (2024 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Rome Odunze, Ricky Pearsall, Keon Coleman (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

1.05 — WR Rome Odunze, Washington

Odunze rounds out the splendid “Big Three” at the top of this year’s WR crop. In most other years, Odunze would be THE premier receiver in the draft. Odunze is big (6-2 1/2 , 212 pounds) and has an elite 9.91 Relative Athletic Score, but his game is about so much more than just athleticism. Odunze is a fine route-runner and is dangerous after the catch, but his extraordinary ball skills are his special sauce. A contested-catch warrior, Odunze should be a prolific producer right away.

1.06 — QB Drake Maye, North Carolina

Landing spot is going to be a critical factor here. A lot of mock drafts have Maye going to the Patriots with the No. 3 overall pick. With New England’s weak collection of pass catchers and mediocre pass blocking, it’s not an ideal ecosystem for a rookie QB. But if Maye ends up in Minnesota and gets to play with WRs Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison, he could go as high as No. 2 in some superflex rookie drafts. Maye has appealing size and mobility to go along with a powerful arm, but his decision-making can be iffy at times.

2.05 — WR Keon Coleman, Florida State

Freaky ball skills are Coleman’s calling card. He doesn’t have great timed speed and isn’t an exceptional route-runner, but he’s a former college basketball player who has catcher’s mitts for hands and will bring down anything thrown into his area code. Think of Coleman as an aspiring Mike Evans. Coleman isn’t going to be an elite separator and probably won’t rack up a lot of yards after the catch, but he could be an air-yards king like Evans.

2.06 — WR Ricky Pearsall, Florida

A probable Day 2 draft pick, Pearsall has been a darling of the predraft process, turning heads at the Senior Bowl and posting a 9.91 Relative Athletic Score in combine testing. Pearsall is a pro-ready pass catcher with advanced route-running chops and great pair of hands.
