2024 1QB Rookie Mock Draft 4.0 – Post-Combine Edition – Round 2

Post Combine 1QB Mock Draft closes out with Round 2.

It’s time for the second round of the 1QB Mock Draft 4.0. The second round of dynasty drafts is shaping up to deliver some running back value. The running backs group is wide open. Who is going to be the first off the board?

For Round 1, check it out HERE.

2.01 Jaylen Wright, RB, 5’11” 210


Few players helped their draft stock at the NFL combine as much as Jaylen Wright. The Volunteer running back put on a show at Indianapolis. His 4.38 40, 38″ vertical, and 11′ 2″broad jump were all at or near the top of the class. When you add his impressive SEC profile, you have one of the top RBs in the class. I’d be happy to snag him here in the second.


2.02 Xavier Legette, WR, 6’1″ 221

South Carolina

Xavier Legette is a big, strong receiver who takes full advantage of that asset. He is not the quickest, but he can fly once he gets up to speed. Legette has good hands late and wins at the catch point. He can be stiff in his route running and get his timing thrown off at the line of scrimmage. If the spectrum is Deebo Samuel on the high end and Laviska Shenault on the low end, Legette is closer to Deebo.


2.03 Keon Coleman, WR, 6’3″ 213


Keon Coleman is one of the most polarizing prospects in this draft class. He showed signs of being a good wide receiver at Florida State, especially while making contested catches. I am afraid he is going to be a one-dimensional WR. He was the second-slowest WR at the combine with a 4.61 40-yard dash. At this point in a 1QB draft, you might have to take him if you want the chance to draft him at all.


2.04 Braelon Allen, RB, 6’1″ 235


Allen didn’t help himself too much at the combine. He dropped some passes during the route-running portion and elected not to run the 40-yard dash until his pro day. Regardless, I still believe in Braelon Allen as an intriguing prospect with a massive ceiling. He has a lower floor than others around this range, but I like the risk here.


2.05 Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, 6’4″ 256


I will continue to take Ja’Tavion Sanders every chance I can; he should be off the board now. He’s athletic and a mismatch nightmare at tight end – he’s got the potential to make noise in the NFL early and be a top-seven talent for years.


2.06 Jayden Daniels, QB, 6’4″ 210


I love getting Jayden Daniels at 2.06 in a 1QB league. Jayden Daniels took significant steps in his game during this final year at LSU. The most exciting trait Daniels has is his rushing ability. That is going to translate well at the NFL level. By the time we get to May, Daniels could be the top quarterback to come off the ball. He has the arm talent to mix with his rushing ability.


2.07 Drake Maye, QB, 6’4″ 223

North Carolina

In a 1QB league, I’m interested in utilizing a mid-second-round pick on a starting quarterback with Maye’s potential. With his size and arm talent, he looks the part of a prototypical quarterback. He has underrated rushing ability. At this price, Drake Maye is a no-brainer.


2.08 Blake Corum, RB, 5’8″ 205


I think Blake Corum‘s play style will translate well to the NFL. He’s a tough back with above-average quickness and vision. He’s an immediate-impact player, and I expect early fantasy points from him.


2.09 JJ McCarthy, QB, 6’2″ 219


Recently, there has been buzz about JJ McCarthy being the third quarterback to be drafted. I’m interested in him because he’s a “deeper” quarterback prospect, not due to his known flaws but because he wasn’t asked to do much in college on a very run-heavy team. At the end of the second, I’m okay taking a shot on a guy I think has the tools for the NFL, even if he hasn’t shown it yet.


2.10 MarShawn Lloyd, RB 5’9″ 220


Running backs will be the most common selections in your second round, so getting a talent like Marshawn Lloyd near the end is a solid value. With no clear-cut RB1 standing out this year, Lloyd and his 8.90 RAS stand out in the right ways.


2.11 Bucky Irving, RB, 5’9″ 192


Bucky Irving disappointed at the combine with a slow 40-yard time, but his 10-yard split was still very good, and he is still one of the better pass-catching backs in this RB class. With a pick at the end of the second round, I would love to add a player I think has PPR upside, and he is the one I would be targeting in this range.


2.12 Emani Bailey, RB, 5’7″ 202


As mentioned earlier, this is a pretty terrible running back draft when you don’t know landing spots. Still, in watching the video, Emani Bailey stands out. He’s my RB1, but it’s certainly arguable, especially after a pretty terrible combine and historically low RAS. He will find a place. He caught every pass thrown his way last year and has a great ability to get to the second level and make them miss.
