1QB Rookie Mock Draft 7.0 – Round 2

2.01 Roschon Johnson, RB, 6’0″ 219


Roschon has spent his career behind the greatest running back prospect we have seen in a long time. That does not make Johnson a subpar prospect. He has the needed size to be a three-down back in the NFL. Roschon has the ceiling of a bell cow back for his NFL team, which means he also has a ceiling of being an RB1 for fantasy. – @DanT_NFL

2.02 Tyjae Spears, RB, 5’9″ 204


Spears is coming off a huge senior season with 1800+ yards from scrimmage and 21 total touchdowns. At this point in the draft, I love the upside Spears gives with his receiving ability, which is better than some of the receivers in this class. He is a tough runner with great hands, who will be a coach’s dream at the NFL level. – @timbmartens

2.03 Tank Bigsby, RB, 6’0″ 210


Bigsby has NFL size and power and excels at running inside the tackles. He is a capable check-down back in the passing game but will need to improve in that area if he expects to be a three-down back. – @Culture_Coach

2.04 Dalton Kincaid, TE. 6’4″ 246


Dalton Kincaid has been one of the quickest risers through this pre-draft cycle, working his way into being arguably the top tight end taken in the NFL Draft and rookie drafts. Great hands, speed, and routes make Kincaid dominant in the receiving game. Kincaid is a great pick in the second, with the highest ceiling at tight end in rookie drafts. – @FF_TJHernandez

2.05 Anthony Richardson, QB, 6’4″ 244


A quarterback with 1000-yard rushing potential in round two makes a ton of sense in a 1QB league. Richardson may still need to figure out the passing, but he can run. It is hard to find many quarterbacks who have 4.4 speed, and Richardson will make an impact for an NFL team and fantasy owners. – @coachstevenp

2.06 Marvin Mims, WR, 5’11” 177


Mims is underrated and has the upside to become a WR2 in dynasty. He’s a smooth player with the ability to work all three levels of the field and make plenty of tough catches. He is an extremely safe pick who provides value this late in the draft. – @DarthDbacks

2.07 Kayshon Boutte, WR, 6’0″ 190


Boutte broke out as a freshman and was off to a great start his sophomore year before an ankle injury ended his season. Even though Boutte had a poor combine, I am shocked to see him here. I will count on what we saw as a freshman and sophomore and roll with that potential in a mid-round two pick. – @JohnnybgoodeDFF

2.08 Israel Abanikanda, RB 5’11” 215


Israel Abanikanda’s fantasy stock has seen better days. At 5’10, 216, he’s built to handle a big workload. His receiving profile is a little light but isn’t completely vacant. Chances are he ends up an early down back, but if he continues improving in the passing game or lands in a Shanahan tree offense, he could have very nice upside. – @MonCalFF

2.09 Jalin Hyatt, WR, 6’0″ 176


Jalin Hyatt will more than likely get decent draft capital. He has excellent speed and big play ability. He is not the greatest route runner but didn’t need to be to be successful at Tennessee. At this point in the draft, he is a value that I could not pass up. – @dropthemikeFF

2.10 Michael Mayer, TE, 6’4″ 265

Notre Dame

It felt like Mayer was the number one tight end for so long in this class, and now he’s been eclipsed. He is still a very good prospect and will be on the field from day one due to his blocking ability. He’s a mismatch over the middle and a reliable target, as pro-ready as a tight end can be! – @ffpeebleschamp

2.11 Bryce Young, QB, 6’0″ 194


Until the NFL makes its opinion known on draft night, Bryce Young will remain my QB1. Young is a wizard manipulating the pocket, a playmaker of the highest order. With many size questions answered, the film evaluation over two seasons of Young stands above Richardson and Stroud. – @DynastyOasis

2.12 Luke Musgrave, TE, 6’6″ 253

Oregon State

Musgrave, to me, is the end of the first tier of tight ends. An elite athlete will be tough for defenses to match up with. He should find snaps almost immediately and make a ton of big plays in the right offense. – Ryan Wilhelm

1QB Rookie Mock Draft 6.0 – Round 3

3.01 Nathaniel Dell, WR, 5’8″ 165


“Tank” Dell is consistently mocked as a Day 2 selection in the NFL draft. We could not ignore that draft capital if these mocks were to prove correct. Despite his small size, he can win with separation and a huge catch radius. – @DanT_NFL

3.02 Will Levis, QB, 6’3″ 222


Levis is shaping up to be a top-10 pick in the NFL draft. With a big arm, good size, and that draft capital, I’ll take a shot on the Kentucky product becoming a franchise quarterback and giving me some depth. – @timbmartens

3.03 Cedric Tillman, WR, 6’3″ 213


Tillman is a big wideout who catches the ball well in traffic. He has good enough speed for his size but will need to improve his release off the snap to be successful. – @Culture_Coach

3.04 Rashee Rice, WR. 6’0″ 204


Rice has excellent ball skills, length, and YAC ability. Refinement of his route tree and physicality will be crucial to his success at the next level. With his projected draft capital around Day 2, I will happily take Rice here. – @FF_TJHernandez

3.05 Darnell Washington, TE, 6’7″ 265


Washington is a raw player with the build to be a good NFL tight end. He needs to land in the right situation to produce. He’ll be a good blocker with receiving upside that you’ll like in round three. – @coachstevenp

3.06 Chase Brown, RB, 5’9″ 209


Brown had an explosive NFL Combine to get back in the conversation as a potential Day 2 draft pick. He’s a versatile back with capable hands and good size, worth the pick in Round 3. – @DarthDbacks

3.07 Zach Evans, RB, 5’11” 202

Ole Miss

Evans was a 5-star recruit out of high school and showed a very high efficiency considering his relatively low volume. I expect him to land in a waiting situation like Tony Pollard, but when given the opportunity, he should have success. – @JohnnybgoodeDFF

3.08 AT Perry, WR, 6’3″ 198

Wake Forrest

AT Perry is built like an Apollo rocket and takes off like one to boot. His breakout age was okay, his production was solid, and his combine 40-time earned him valuable draft capital. He’s worth a flyer here. – @MonCalFF

3.09 DeWayne McBride, RB, 5’10” 209


DeWayne McBride has the prototypical size and speed combination the NFL seeks. He also has good contact balance. What could hold him back is that he wasn’t used in the passing game at UAB. – @dropthemikeFF

3.10 Evan Hull, RB, 5’10” 209


I am targeting Hull later in drafts. He’s a smooth pass-catcher and has some acceleration when he finds a lane. Hull has decent vision and power and could be a solid three-down fill-in back and a third-down contributor at worst. – @ffpeebleschamp

3.11 Deuce Vaughn, RB, 5’5″ 179


Vaughn is diminutive, but few players have his production profile. He will not be an every-down back. For PPR managers looking for value late in the third round, Deuce is manna from Manhattan. – @DynastyOasis

3.12 Kenny McIntosh, RB, 6’0″ 204


McIntosh closes out the draft. Playoff teams don’t run the ball like they used to and a rookie like him is going to find a place very quickly in a backfield because of his pass blocking and receiving skills. – Ryan Wilhelm

That wraps up 1QB Rookie Mock Draft. How do you feel about the value in the third round? Did we leave anyone out? Drop a comment and let up know.
