2024 1QB Rookie Mock Draft 3.0 – Pre-Combine Edition – Round 2

The NFL Combine is getting ready to heat up and the Dynasty Nerds team wraps up their Pre-Combine 1QB mock draft.

It’s time for the second round of the 1QB Mock Draft 3.0. The second round of dynasty drafts is shaping up to deliver some running back value. The NFL Combine and subsequent pro days will be very important for this running back class.

For Round 1, check it out HERE.

2.01 Trey Benson, RB, 6’1″ 211

Florida State

Trey Benson has feature back size and show good vision between the tackles. He is a tough runner who can withstand first contact. Benson shows good scheme versatility. I could see him in Dallas or Houston at the end of the second round.


2.02 Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, 6’4″ 256 Xavier Worthy, WR, 6’1″ 160


The wide receivers I wanted were gone, but Ja’Tavion Sanders is a very nice consolation prize. He’s a big and athletic tight end with great hands and the ability to make a genuine difference as a pass-catcher. He’s one of my favorite prospects in the class and a top-eight tight end from year one.


2.03 Blake Corum, RB, 5’8″ 200


At this point in the draft, I’m looking for contributors. Blake Corum is one of the most accomplished running backs in the class. He has proven capable of handling a massive workload and succeeding while doing so. Landing with either Jim or John Harbaugh would send his value up quite a bit. I’m happy to snag him here in the second.


2.04 Adonai Mitchell, WR, 6’4″ 196


Adonai Mitchell‘s decision to transfer to Texas from Georgia was one of the best decisions of his life. He immediately bonded with quarterback Quinn Ewers and shot up draft boards, hauling in 11 touchdowns on the season. He has shades of Tee Higgins in his game. He can go get a jump ball, but he also shows some savviness in his route running. His draft floor is 33rd overall to the Carolina Panthers, but I could see him going to the Chiefs or Bills late in the first round.


2.05 Ladd McConkey, WR, 5’11” 187


Ladd McConkey is someone I’m excited about as a receiver for the NFL. He has all the athleticism and route-running traits to translate to the NFL. He would win physically every play, but his route running will help him create separation on every play. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands to produce yards after the catch.


2.06 Jaylen Wright, RB, 5’11” 210


I am incredibly high on Wright and think he is a back who climbs up draft boards following the combine. There is some speculation he could run his 40 in the 4.3s. If he does that, then I think he has the potential to climb up the ranks. Jaylen Wright has big play potential and gets up to speed quickly after the catch, which reminds me of Devon Achane. If you could take that talent and make him the perfect size of 5’11/210 pounds, you’ve got massive fantasy star potential. He is definitely one of “my guys.” Put him on your radar now. You heard it here first!


2.07 Braelon Allen, RB, 6’2″ 238


If you’re attacking the running back position in your drafts, the philosophy of quantity over quality reigns true. With no bona fide RB1, guys like Braelon Allen fall to the middle of the second round and could immediately return solid value in their rookie seasons.


2.08 Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, 6’2″ 190


Ja’Lynn Polk is the only receiver on the board I’m comfortable taking in the second. His acceleration off the line isn’t great, but his long gait gives him enough speed to compete, and he has reliable hands. Add his willingness to get physical with defenders while blocking, and he could easily be a team’s main ‘Z’ receiver.


2.09 Malachi Corley, WR, 5’11” 210

Western Kentucky

Malachi Corley is built in the mold of a Deebo or Amon-Ra, a wrecker in the short passing game, and a demon after the catch. His 1300+ yard junior season was an impressive pile of production. A strong senior bowl week has propelled him into the top 100 of the NFL draft.


2.10 MarShawn Lloyd, RB 5’9″ 215


MarShawn Lloyd has the upside to outproduce this draft pick. He might not be the flashiest, but he does a lot of things well. Lloyd is good in pass protection and in the passing game which makes him valuable to any NFL team. He will be a viable third-down running back in the NFL, and I would be willing to take the gamble on him late in the second round of rookie drafts.


2.11 Drake Maye, QB, 6’5″ 220

North Carolina

This is a great value late in round two. With Drake Maye likely being drafted in the top three, he will be expected to play early. Even if my roster is set at QB, the trade value Maye could have is more valuable than anything else on the board. I would be thrilled with my 2.11 if Maye is available.


2.12 Roman Wilson, WR, 6’0″ 192


Wilson is another great value here at the end of the second round. Roman Wilson really turned heads during his short time at the Senior Bowl. Like McCarthy, he doesn’t have the collegiate numbers due to Michigan’s offense, but he is definitely a talented route runner and could surprise at the next level in a more pass-heavy situation.
