2023 Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 5.0 – Round 2

It is time to start looking to the 2023 rookie draft. The Dynasty Nerds team is here with Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 5.0.

We move on to Round 2 of Superflex Mock Draft 5.0. After four quarterbacks go in Round 1, we see a running back heavy Round 2. The mercurial Kayshon Boutte lands here as well as a first-timer at the running back position.

You can find Round 1 of the Superflex mock draft HERE. Let’s dive into Round 2.

Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 5.0 – Round 2

2.01 Jalin Hyatt, WR, 6’0″ 175

Tennessee

After two non-descript seasons at Tennessee, Jalin Hyatt exploded as a junior. Hyatt put up 67 receptions for 1269 yards and 15 touchdowns en route to winning the Biletnikoff Award as the best wide receiver in college football. The key to maximizing his explosive talent will be transitioning from the college spread offense to an NFL offense. If Hyatt makes that transition, he could be a draft day steal for fantasy managers and a lucky NFL team. – @Culture_Coach

2.02 Zach Evans, RB, 6’0″ 215

Ole Miss

Zach Evans has all the talent in the world. His rushing efficiency metrics are off the charts, and he has some of the most fun tape in the entire draft class. He spent his college career in a committee and, most recently, was outproduced by a 3-star freshman teammate. But Judkins is a stud, and I’m not holding that against him. People are down on Evans right now, but he has a ridiculous amount of upside, and I love the value of getting him in the second round. – @devy2dynastyFR

2.03 Michael Mayer, TE, 6’4″ 265

Notre Dame

While some very talented running backs and wide receivers are still on the board, I decided to head to the top of my tight end rankings. Mayer is a rock-solid prospect that seems destined to hear his name called on Day 1 of the draft. He combines gold production with quality athleticism, making him as safe a prospect as there is. Coming away from this mock with potentially the top quarterback and tight end from the three spot puts a smile on this writer’s face. – @ReflipeWThenuz

2.04 Tank Bigsby, RB 6’0″ 208

Auburn

Tank Bigsby couldn’t possibly have a more fitting nickname. He runs incredibly hard. Tank ran track in high school, and it shows. He’s more than just a one-cut runner, though. Tank caught 62 passes in college and could develop that side of his game more in the NFL. Tank Bigsby has a lot of potential. – @imbobbybish

2.05 Kayshon Boutte, WR 6’0″ 190

LSU

In the mid-second, I’m looking strictly for upside. Boutte provides that in spades, and I’m far from his biggest fan. That said, the ceiling he provides here pushes him over others still available, like Josh Downs and Cedric Tillman for me. I was off of him when he was going in the mid-first. In the mid-second? Every time. – @theSmingDynasty

2.06 Devon Achane, RB 5’9″ 185

Texas A&M

What can I say? Devon Achane is my guy. Fast and twitchy, he’s great at making guys miss, and his speed is top-notch. It will be curious to see what he clocks at the combine, most of his measured numbers are wind-assisted, but in 2021 he did clock in at 22.2 mph on a kick return. He’s likely a satellite back/return specialist, but I wouldn’t discount his potential as a runner just because of his size, and he could return great value in leagues where special teams yards are counted. – @MonCalFF

2.07 Tyjae Spears, RB, 5’9″ 204

Tulane

Tyjae Spears has to be the hottest riser coming out of the Senior Bowl. The Tulane running back took full advantage of the week to get himself in front of scouts and media. He had multiple highlight-reel plays on top of looking like the best offensive play there. One concern for Spears is the recovery from his ACL injury, but he displayed he was fully healthy. I talked to one scout in Mobile who said don’t be surprised if Tyjae goes in the first half of the third round of the NFL draft. Capital like that will have dynasty managers selecting him in the first round of rookie drafts. – @DanT_NFL

2.08 Josh Downs, WR 5’10” 175

North Carolina

Downs quietly checks all the boxes except for him being on the smaller side, but so are quite a few of the 2023 wide receivers. He’s an early declare, early breakout, and a solid analytical producer. Downs had the fourth-best PFF receiving grade this year (min 80 tgts), and he had the second-best PFF receiving grade vs. man coverage. Another thing I don’t think is discussed regarding Downs’ game is that he put up a contested catch percentage of ~72% this year, good enough for WR2 on the season (min 80 tgts). If Josh can get day two or better draft capital (currently projected in the 2nd), he’ll be a guy to target in the second round of your Superflex rookie drafts. – @_jasonstein

2.09 Kendre Miller, RB 6’0″ 214

TCU

Kendre Miller was a major catalyst for a TCU offense that shocked the nation. Following the departure of Zach Evans to Ole Miss, Miller took command of the Horned Frogs backfield to the tune of 1,515 total yards and 17 touchdowns. Kendre Miller is a strong, physical back with surprising long speed. Using a late second to take a back who has the size and tools to carve out a good workload in the NFL is a no-brainer. A good combine might drive Miller’s price up, but at 2.09, he’s a steal for your team. – @FF_TJHernandez

2.10 Zay Flowers, WR 5’9″ 182

Boston College

At the end of the second round, I love the value of Zay Flowers. Flowers is my 15th overall prospect, so taking him at the 2.10 was a no-brainer. Flowers is one of the most explosive players in this class to complement his good hands and excellent cuts. Even though Flowers is undersized at 5″ 10 and 172 lbs, he should be an NFL-ready slot receiver. Flowers is projected to go in the second round of the NFL Draft, which is excellent draft capital. This will give Flowers a ton of targets from the slot as his NFL team will be looking to use their second-rounder. I love the talent of Flowers, and I’m ecstatic to take him at the end of the second round. – @SteveBradshawFF

2.11 Evan Hull, RB, 5’11” 210

Northwestern

Hull put on a show at the Senior Bowl, proving that his final year of college wasn’t a fluke. He has been climbing my rankings since that performance. At this point in the draft, I’m going for upside, and while I was tempted to take Kincaid, I went for the low-mileage and pass-effective running back. He’s got a ton of potential and could be an absolute steal at this point. – @DarthDbacks

2.12 Eric Gray, RB, 5’9″ 210

Oklahoma

Many had high expectations for Eric Gray when he transferred to Oklahoma, and he fell short of those in 2021. It seems he just needed a year to settle in, though, as he exploded in 2022 with 1595 yards and 11 touchdowns from scrimmage. His patience and vision are strong, his play strength has improved, and he can certainly catch the ball out of the backfield. To top it all off, he had a solid Senior Bowl performance and is a potential Day 2 pick and future starter. – @devycramps

That wraps up Round 2. Who was a reach? Who was a value? Let us know what you think. You can find Round 1 HERE, and you can find the 1QB mock draft HERE.
