Dynasty Rookie Draft Pick Review

1.11 – Ladd McConkey (WR – LAC)

Ladd McConkey emerged in his third season at Georgia as a redshirt sophomore, achieving 762 receiving yards and seven touchdowns with a 20% dominator rating, despite a late breakout at 21 years old. Competing for targets with Brock Bowers, one of college football’s top tight ends, and ahead of 2024 second-round pick AD Mitchell on the depth chart, McConkey demonstrated his capability, especially in the two games without Bowers in 2023, posting his highest yardage totals. Although injuries impacted his final year’s stats, he remained efficient, ranking 8th nationally in yards per route run (3.26). Known for his quickness and polished route-running rather than size, McConkey’s agility and speed, highlighted by a sub-4.4 40-yard dash at the combine, make him a promising professional prospect. Drafted by the Chargers who traded up in Round 2, he enters a team with a weak WR corps, positioning him to potentially lead in targets.

2.11 – MarShawn Lloyd (RB – GB)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably already aware that MarShawn Lloyd was one of my man crushes throughout the NFL Draft cycle. While his landing spot has turned many off, I’m not fazed. Will Josh Jacobs be heavily involved weekly? Sure, but that doesn’t mean that Lloyd is a zero or change-of-pace option only. Lloyd crushed every part of the predraft process after jumping off the stat sheet during his final two collegiate seasons. In each of those two years, he finished in the top 20 in yards after contact per attempt, breakaway percentage, and PFF elusive rating. Lloyd will quickly be a major factor in this backfield, with his main competition for touches (Josh Jacobs) hoping for a bounceback year. Last year, Jacobs struggled mightily to break tackles and create big plays as he ranked (among 49 qualifying backs last season per Fantasy Points Data) 41st in explosive run rate, 37th in missed tackles forced per attempt, and 44th in yards after contact per attempt. Lloyd is an RB3/4 who can easily out-kick his ADP this season.

3.11 – Luke McCaffrey (WR – WAS)

Luke McCaffrey’s brother was the final pick in Round 3 by the Washington Commanders. They were in need of a slot WR, and the younger LMC can fill that void in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense. McCaffrey has not been playing WR for very long, but possesses elite athletic bloodlines that have helped him make the switch.

Usually, you don’t chase the draft capital of WRs that go well ahead of consensus, but McCaffrey’s Day 2 draft capital needs to put fantasy managers on notice. In his final season at Rice, he commanded a 30% target share (5th) and ranked 9th in total unique routes run.

4.11 – Jacob Cowing (WR – ARI)

Jacob Cowing, though lacking in size at under 5-foot-9 and 168 pounds, compensates with exceptional speed, agility, and precise route-running, making him a constant threat on the field. With a career dominator rating of 32%, Cowing’s dominance at Arizona and UTEP is undeniable, highlighted by elite single-season marks of 42% and 41% in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Despite concerns about his size, his senior year showcased his ability to stretch the field and create after the catch, amassing 89 receptions for 868 yards and 13 touchdowns. While a Senior Bowl injury may have dampened his stock, Cowing’s K.J. Hamler-esque profile and sub-4.4 speed make him an intriguing prospect, particularly in a Kyle Shanahan-style offense like the one in San Francisco, where undersized receivers have thrived before.

5.11 – Isaiah Davis (RB – NYJ)

Davis arrives in the Big Apple via the fifth round of the NFL Draft. This wasn’t the landing spot you wanted if you believed in Davis’s talent. He’s the possible RB4 on the depth chart buried by one of the few true young bell cows in the NFL. Davis is now only a fifth-round rookie draft pick, waiver wire add, or taxi squad fodder. It’s possible that he could ascend to the RB2 spot on the depth chart, but that’s the best-case scenario currently.
