2021 1-QB PPR Mock Draft 6.0 Round 2

The Dynasty Nerds team is back with Round 2 of the 1QB rookie mock draft. Where is your favorite second rounder going?

Round two of our 1-QB PPR mock draft is full of surprises and features plenty of value picks. We’ll keep moving along as we enter into April. You can find round one here.

2.01- Justin Fields- QB, Ohio State

Drafted by Joe O’ Leary- @TheHQNerd

  • Height- 6′ 3″
  • Weight- 228 lbs
  • Class- Junior

In one QB leagues, we’ve reached the point where the position has become a little too undervalued. Justin Fields was just about the same level of a prospect coming into college as classmate Trevor Lawrence. At Ohio State, Fields did everything to solidify himself as a future franchise QB. I’m not going to let him drop to the middle of the second round here. I’m getting my guy.

2.02- Elijah Moore- WR, Ole Miss

Drafted by Dom Johnson- @domffl

  • Height- 5’9″
  • Weight- 185
  • Class- Junior

If you’ve kept up with our monthly mock drafts, you would know that I LOVE Elijah Moore. He has all of the athletic measurables that you want (excluding height) in a receiver. Moore’s Pro Day results didn’t disappoint either. He had a 6.63 3-cone, reached 17 reps in the bench press, and had a 4.35 40 yard dash. He’s as quick as they come.

2.03- Tylan Wallace- WR, Oklahoma State

Drafted by Austin Reed- @dynastynerd101

  • Height- 6’0
  • Weight- 190
  • Class- Senior

He’s not a top-five WR in this class, but Tylan Wallace falls right where he should, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Wallace has excellent hands, quick feet, and isn’t afraid to make tough, contested catches. Wallace is tough playing in traffic and is dangerous in space. He lacks elite speed but makes up for it with his ability to separate from defenders.

2.04- Amon-Ra St. Brown- WR, USC

Drafted by Keith Ensminger- @TheSmingDynasty

  • Height- 6’1
  • Weight- 195
  • Class-Junior

I considered taking RB Kenneth Gainwell here. However, after picking RB Javonte Williams in the first round, I grabbed one of the several wide receivers I like in this class. If St. Brown gets Day two draft capital, I’m confidently selecting him here. He profiles very well in today’s NFL. With a versatile skill-set, he’ll likely see the field early due to his route-running and special teams’ play in the return game.

2.05- Kenneth Gainwell- RB, Memphis

Drafted by Dwight Peebles- @ffpeebleschamp

  • Height- 5’11”
  • Weight- 195
  • Class- Junior

My love for Kenneth Gainwell is probably borderline unhealthy. I believe he has “it”, and I hope he’s added 15-20 pounds while training for the draft. Gainwell’s fast, has quick feet, can shift and cut without losing speed, and catch passes. He could be a dangerous running back at the next level. Size is the biggest concern, but he does have some concerns about creating on his own. Still, I love Gainwell here.

2.06- Zach Wilson- QB, BYU

Drafted by Carl Vagle- @cargle_vagleff

  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Junior

This pick was a tough one to make. I wanted to go with Gainwell, but I had a tier break in positional talent after his selection earlier. It may be a 1QB league, but with the current options, I grabbed a player whose arrows are all pointing up. Wilson can make almost every throw and knows how to extend plays. He fits the modern mold at quarterback. If Wilson can continue to be the quarterback he was in 2020, he has a chance to hold down that spot for ten or more years.

2.07- Kadarius Toney- WR, Florida

Drafted by Scott Chisholm- @sportsguyscott

  • Height- 6’0
  • Weight- 195
  • Class- Senior

Many people are down on Kadarius Toney for his late breakout age and drops at the Senior Bowl. That’s fine by me, though. Toney tied for the third-fewest drops according to PFF among qualifying receivers. Speed, versatility, and great hands more often than not. I now have two WR’s on my team, likely going on day one of the NFL draft.

2.08- Javian Hawkins- RB, Louisville

Drafted by Derek Bosworth- @dynasty_god

  • Height- 5’9”
  • Weight- 195
  • Class- Junior

I’m very high on Javian Hawkins compared to most. Hawkins’s primary concern is size and whether he can handle an NFL workload. However, it wasn’t uncommon for him to break 25 carries in college. He’s proven to be a workhorse and improve as the game goes on. That, combined with his lateral quickness and devastating long speed, makes him a perfect zone running back. In the right situation, Hawkins will be a dynasty asset.

2.09- Brevin Jordan- TE, Miami (FL)

Drafted by Erik Kortz- @ekballer

  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 245
  • Class- Junior

Brevin Jordan is big, fast, mean, and buttery smooth. Jordan’s route running is as good as any of the bigger-bodied wide receivers in this class. Except, he offers the ability to run after the catch to go along with it.

2.10- Dyami Brown- WR, UNC

Drafted by Josh Adkins- @DynastyOasis

  • Height- 6’0″
  • Weight- 185
  • Class- Junior

Dyami Brown will be on a lot of my rosters this year. Vertical separation and premier ball-tracking will allow Brown to impact an NFL offense as a rookie. He has a 6’1″ frame and wiry athleticism. That leads me to believe that he could become a receiver who can win at all three secondary levels by year two or three.

2.11- Trey Lance, QB- North Dakota State

Drafted by Dynasty PJ- @mastapj

  • Height- 6’4
  • Weight- 230
  • Class- Junior

Trey Lance is my third-ranked quarterback, and I’d be thrilled to get him at this point in a 1QB draft. Sure, there will be questions about only having one season of experience and playing lesser competition. However, Lance’s upside is worth the gamble.

In the age of Konami Code quarterbacks, he might have the best rushing upside in the draft. That would give him a lovely floor every week. If drafted to a team like the Carolina Panthers or Atlanta Falcons, he could sit for a year. That means he can learn the game and step into the mix to finish as a QB1 starting in 2022.

2.12- Michael Carter- RB, UNC

Drafted by JM- @thedraftgenius

Michael Carter (UNC Athletics)

  • Height- 5’8″
  • Weight- 200
  • Class- Junior

Averaging 8 yards per carry will translate well to the league. Michael Carter’s time at UNC proved that he could be a consistent contributor in a team’s backfield. I am expecting a 4.5 40 time from him. That, mixed with Carters’ elegant running style, is what I want in the last pick of the 2nd round.
