- Top five remains the same with Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Matt Stafford.
- Top rookies entering the list include Jameis Winston at 16 and Marcus Mariota at 17. Both are high-end QB2 options and even better in 2QB leagues.
- Several other quarterbacks had big drops thanks to the entry of the rookies above including Nick Foles from 16th to 20th; Robert Griffin from 20th to 26th; Brock Osweiler from 32nd to 36th; Matt Cassel from 33rd to 37th; and Luke McCown from 34th to 38th.
It’s been less than a week since the NFL Draft started but we already have an idea at which rookies you should target. We did a 12-team, offense-only rookie mock draft. Below are the results:
- 1st overall pick – Todd Gurley – RB – St. Louis Rams – Todd Gurley is the only prospect with generational talent and he’ll get the carries needed to justify this selection. The offensive line is a question but imagine Adrian Peterson in 2012. He didn’t need one and neither will Gurley.
- 2nd overall pick – Kevin White – WR – Chicago Bears – White has the size and credentials to be a WR1 and will start immediately. He enters a better situation than fellow rookie receiver Amari Cooper and should immediately have 1,000 yard seasons.
- 3rd overall pick – Melvin Gordon – RB – San Diego Chargers – Elite skills everywhere minus the size of a Gurley. The Charles comparisons are lazy but probably accurate here. And there is NO competition from day one. Just an overall clean prospect going to a great situation.
- 4th overall pick – Amari Cooper – WR – Oakland Raiders – Just 21 when the season starts, Cooper was the consensus top receiver in college last year and followed it up with a great combine including a sub-4.4 40-time. Doesn’t have the best situation but should overcome that.
- 5th overall pick – DeVante Parker – WR – Miami Dolphins – Assuming the medical stuff checks out on the foot, he’s an excellent receiver with a chance to be a day one starter. Reminds me of Crabtree pre-achillies injury.
- 6th overall pick – Nelson Algholor – WR – Philadelphia Eagles – The heir apparent to Jeremy Maclin, Algholor is a crisp route runner and can return punts which just add to his versatility. If you’re a believe in Chip Kelly, you’ll love Algholor.
- 7th overall pick – Jameis Winston – QB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – I’m as scared by the qbs as anyone but st this point in the first its worth it. Offensive line permitting, he can accumulate stats his first year.
- 8th overall pick – Ameer Abdullah – RB – Detroit Lions – His low center of gravity coupled with his career 5.5 YPC figures to translate to the NFL. He also enters a good situation with only the pedestrian Joique Bell ahead of him for early-down duty.
- 9th overall pick – Marcus Mariota – QB – Tennessee Titans – Assuming he’s the starter from day one, he’s worth drafting at the end of the first round of this rookie mock draft.
- 10th overall pick – T.J. Yeldon – RB – Jacksonville Jaguars – Yeldon has the size and experience to be a three-down back and is drawing comparisons to a poor man’s Arian Foster. He has little-to-no competition in Jacksonville and should start right away.
- 11th overall pick – Maxx Williams – TE – Baltimore Ravens – The only TE guaranteed to start from day one. Joe Flacco will love him and make the targets readily available.
- 12th overall pick – Breshad Perriman – WR – Baltimore Ravens – The arrival of offensive coordinator Marc Trestman coupled with the lack of competition creates a golden opportunity for Perriman. He takes over Torrey Smith’s spot immediately and will love Joe Flacco’s big arm.
After waiting months to make it official, Tampa Bay selects Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston as the first overall pick.
Winston has plenty of talent surrounding him with Mike Evans at receiver and Austin Seferian-Jenkins at tight end. Assuming he avoids a massive face plant, he should over take Mike Glennon immediately and be the week one starter. He has Dirk Koetter calling the plays in Tampa, who just came from working with Matt Ryan in Atlanta, which is a positive for his development. For dynasty purposes, there’s already a ton of quarterback talent but it’s rare you snag one that could be a QB2 his rookie year. He should only improve from there as he’s widely considered the best ‘pure’ quarterback in the draft. There’s a ton of talent to pick in your rookie dynasty drafts but Winson should be in the first round.
It should also help the dynasty prospects of Evans, solidifying him as a WR1, and giving Seferian-Jenkins a great opportunity to be a TE1.
Updated tight rankings can be found here.
- Top five remains the same with Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, Julius Thomas, and Greg Olsen (he of the recent extension).
- No major changes throughout the list except for Dwayne Allen to 14th from 17th. Of the two Colts tight ends, Allen is the one to own over Colby Fleener.
- As far as rookies this past year, no one really set the world on fire so their rankings remain the same. However, of the big three from the 2014 class – Eric Ebron, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Jace Amaro – it looks like ASJ is ready to take the biggest step. With the probably arrival of Jameis Winston, ASJ will have a more competent quarterback to get him the ball.
