Earlier this week, we dropped Round 1 of the post-NFL Combine Mock Draft. We now have four quarterbacks comfortably in the first round. How many more will get drafted in rookie drafts? The first eight or so picks seem to be shaking out, but at the end of the first and beginning of the second rounds, we still have players jockeying for draft position.
This is also the first mock draft we have done with a third round. The depth in this class is starting to shape up, with some players who looked like they might be first-round picks at the beginning of the college football season now available in Round 3.
You can find Round 1 of the Superflex mock draft HERE. Let’s dive into Rounds 2.
Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 6.0 – Round 2
2.01 Kendre Miller, RB, 5’11” 215
I am alone on an island, Miller is my RB2 in the class – I love his film. Miller creates with vision, power, and insane contact balance. He didn’t display much in the pass-catching game, but when he did, he looked natural, and I am not worried. – @ffpeebleschamp
2.02 Tank Bigsby, RB, 6’0″ 210
I considered a lot of options here. I went with Tank Bigsby because I believe he is a bit undervalued after the combine. He didn’t have a blazing 40 time, but I didn’t expect him to. Running 4.56 is plenty fast. His vertical and broad jump numbers hurt his stock, but I am a fan of the tape and not too concerned. – @THEtristancook
2.03 Michael Mayer, TE, 6’4″ 249
Michael Mayer is going to be a top 20 pick in the NFL Draft.— TheOGfantasyfootball (@TheOGfantasy) January 22, 2023
21 Years Old with great college production- 180 receptions and 18 TDs at Notre Dame. Back to back 800 yard seasons.
He should be drafted as a top 12 TE in Dynasty pic.twitter.com/obR1bYdNUR
I’ve been able to snatch up arguably the best prospects of this class at both the quarterback and tight end positions. Mayer has drawn some criticism for an average performance at the Combine, but to me, his college tape speaks for itself. For a prospect of Mayer’s caliber, a ‘good enough’ showing in Indianapolis is worthy of this selection in the early second round. – @Spydes78
2.04 Dalton Kincaid, TE, 6’4″ 246
At 2.04, I like Kincaid’s value. Kincaid is a great player and freak athlete, even if he didn’t have the elite combination of some of these other tight ends. Nevertheless, Kincaid will get mid-first to early second-round draft capital and has a chance to produce from day one at the NFL level. – @SteveBradshawFF
2.05 Josh Downs, WR, 5’10” 175
Downs was already rising up draft boards before the combine, but he was vaulted even more due to his good all-around performance. On the smaller side, Downs is tough, great in space, and makes sharp cuts in his routes. I fully expect Downs to be a valuable contributor to an NFL offense in the next couple of years. – @domffl
2.06 Chase Brown, RB, 5’9″ 209
We’re at a crossroads where expected draft capital is shifting due to the NFL Combine results, but it hasn’t settled yet. I liked Chase Brown as a deeper option, but he’s not on track for Day 2, so I’m taking him here. He has elite athleticism, and with slight improvements to his receiving and weight, he could have bellcow upside. – @MonCalFF
2.07 Tyjae Spears, RB, 5’9″ 204
One of everyone’s favorite sleeper running backs in the class, Spears has excellent tape from his time at Tulane. He went on to impress at the Senior Bowl. He has as much upside as any running back left on the board at this point in the draft. – @ReflipeWThenuz
2.08 Sean Tucker, RB, 5’9″ 207
The fact that Tucker didn’t test at the Combine allows me to grab him this late. I had him and Charbonnet neck and neck, so to get him ten picks later feels like an absolute value. Tucker showcased speed on the football/track team and, although dropped off in his final season, set the school record for single-season rushing yards and 100-yard games. – @haykjernazian
2.09 Roschon Johnson, RB, 6’0″ 219
The Eagles should draft Bijan Robinson …… ‘s backup Roschon Johnson in the later rounds.— Brenden Deeg (@BrendenDeeg_) March 5, 2023
He is going to be a steal.
I’m not sure how Roschon was available here, but I won’t complain. Sure, he ran a lackluster 40, but his 10-Yard Split time was among the best in the draft. Combine that with proven attributes playing at Texas, and I’m confident this will be one of the best value picks in the draft. I’m all in on Roschon. – @DarthDbacks
2.10 Jalin Hyatt, WR, 6’0″ 176
Imagine my surprise when I saw Hyatt hadn’t yet been picked. People have soured on him after the combine, and I’m not sure why. He will be a Day 2, perhaps even Day 1, choice in the NFL draft, and you’re telling me I can get him here in the late second round? Not much more needs to be said! – @theSmingDynasty
2.11 Luke Musgrave, TE, 6’6″ 253
Musgrave gets lost in the Mayer vs. Kincaid debate, but Musgrave could be the best of the bunch. Landing spot and usage will determine a lot, but Musgrave has elite tools at 6’6″, 253. He ran 4.61 at that size. Musgrave is a smoother and better athlete than Mayer, and he’s bigger, and more of a factor as a true tight end than Kincaid will be. – @fakefootballs
2.12 Hendon Hooker, QB, 6’3″ 217
This pick comes with a bit of caution. Hooker tore his ACL in November. Hooker totaled 3,135 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns with just 2 interceptions in his 11 games this past season and added another 430 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns. He was dynamic in the Volunteers offense and showed poise, leadership, and skill. – @timbmartens
Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 6.0 – Round 3
3.01 Cedric Tillman, WR, 6’3″ 213
While there are not many WRs with size in this class, Tennessee’s Cedric Tillman is one of the class’ best.— Daniel Griffis (@DanDGriffis) March 4, 2023
Tillman isn’t being nearly talked about enough and would be an excellent snag in RD 2.
Tillman will be one of the biggest values in rookie drafts this season – if he gets decent draft capital. He is a forgotten man in the class. He’s physical and tough, has a huge catch radius, has strong hands, and tracks the ball well. – @ffpeebleschamp
3.02 Zach Evans, RB, 5’10” 202
Evans felt like another value pick to me here. I considered Boutte or Darnell Washington but decided to go with Evans because the running back class is thinner than the wide receivers. If we were picking beyond three rounds, I’d look at wide receiver late. – @THEtristancook
3.03 Darnell Washington, TE, 6’7″ 265
This draft class is a tight end treasure trove, and Washington is no exception. The Bulldog tight end dominated the Combine with one-handed catches and off-the-charts athletic measurables. In the right offense, Washington could blossom into a star. – @Spydes78
3.04 Kayshon Boutte, WR, 5’11” 195
Kayshon Boutte’s stock had just plummeted at the NFL Combine. However, Boutte still has a ton of upside, even if he hasn’t shown it as much since his freshman year. At 3.04, I’m fine taking a chance on a guy like Boutte. – @SteveBradshawFF
3.05 Marvin Mims, WR, 5’11” 183
Unsurprisingly, Mims showed his speed at the combine with an impressive 4.38. Mims excels at outrunning his defender and making over-the-shoulder catches. He touts a career average of 19.5 yards per catch throughout college. I’m happy to take a flyer on him in the third round here. – @domffl
3.06 Israel Abanikanda, RB, 5’10” 216
We’re looking for upside in the third, and Israel Abanikanda has it. He’s a beefy 216 pounds at 5’10 and a capable receiver despite small hands. He has the build for a big workload, so I hope he gets it. – @MonCalFF
3.07 Xazavian Valladay, RB, 6’0″ 200
Xazavian Valladay has looked great the last two weeks. Has 63 yards in the 1st quarter tonight.— Kevin (@Daboys_22) September 11, 2022
I’m taking one of my favorite sleepers. X Valladay. The kid has by dynamic everywhere he’s been, from the Mountain West to the Pac-12. He shined at the East-West Shrine Game. Watching his game, I see a poor man’s Travis Etienne. I’m planting my flag here. – @ReflipeWThenuz
3.08 Rashee Rice, WR, 6’1″ 204
Rice illustrates why Superflex drafts are so deep this year. He offers big play ability, a good blend of size/speed, and excellent jump-ball abilities. He has struggled with consistency and overall effort but has the upside I will be targeting late in drafts. – @haykjernazian
3.09 DeWayne McBride, RB, 5’10” 205
I had to do a double-take to make sure he wasn’t drafted. To my chagrin, he was still available, and I’m excited to get a strong running back with plenty of upside and starting potential this late. – @DarthDbacks
3.10 Parker Washington, WR, 5’10” 204
As the 2023 NFL Draft approaches, don’t forget about Parker Washington 😈3️⃣— The Basic Blues Podcast (@BasicBluesPod) February 27, 2023
I might as well take a swing on Washington this late in our mock. He is likely a late Day 2 pick but may profile more as an NFL return specialist than a wide receiver. Hard to argue the upside, though, at pick 3.10. – @theSmingDynasty
3.11 Evan Hull, RB, 5’10” 209
After performing well at the combine, I hoped Hull would fall to me here. He ran 4.47 in the 40, had a sub-7 second three-cone, and performed well in the vertical and broad jumps. Hull was a decent pass catcher at Northwestern, with 55 receptions in 2022. – @fakefootballs
3.12 Xavier Hutchinson, WR, 6’2″ 203
Hutchinson’s 40-time was good, not great, at 4.53 seconds. I was impressed by his 6.91 3-cone drill, good enough for fifth-best among wide receivers. He looked fairly smooth and fluid in the gauntlet and passing drills, especially with his big frame. – @timbmartens
That wraps up our first three-round Superflex 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.
