2024 1QB Rookie Mock Draft 5.0: Pre NFL Draft – Round 2

1QB Mock Draft 5.o keeps rolling with Round 2.

It’s time for the second round of the 1QB Mock Draft 5.0. The second round of dynasty drafts is shaping up to deliver some running back value. While the top of the draft is packed with stars, the second and third rounds are where dynasty managers earn their stripes.

Check out Round 1 here.

2.01 Ladd McConkey, WR, 6’0″ 189lbs


Ladd is a great 1QB second-round pick. He may never be an alpha X receiver, but Ladd has the tools to be a very good receiver for the next decade. He runs routes and separates at a very high level. He has great hands. I’m excited to see if he goes late Round 1 or early Round 2 in the draft.


2.02 Xavier Legette, WR, 6’1″ 221lbs

South Carolina

Xavier Legette is a ball of muscle with incredible speed, an astounding leap, and good hands. It took him four years to get his chance, but in year five, he dominated. He’s been clocked at 22.3 mph on the field and isn’t afraid to get physical with defensive backs. He’s a Z/slot with X receiver upside.


2.03 Jaylen Wright, RB, 5’11” 210lbs


Just because this class doesn’t have a “Bijan” doesn’t mean you can’t find value. Wright has been in my top three for quite some time now, and his showing at the combine solidified that. Assuming Day 2 draft capital, Wright could be a PPR gem. I will gladly take him at the top of Round 2, given the high ceiling I see for him.


2.04 Javon Baker, WR, 6’1′ 202lbs


Javon Baker has been rising up many draft analysts’ draft boards. Baker is an NFL-ready player who could start for a team on day one. Baker’s combination of route running and quickness makes him a dangerous receiver for fantasy. He even holds value as a return man, which could come in handy with these two kick-off return rules. If he lands with day two capital, he’ll be a second-round pick.


2.05 Drake Maye, QB, 6’4″ 223lbs

North Carolina

Finding a rookie quarterback at this point in your 1QB draft is a steal, especially with how pro-ready Drake Maye looks to be. Vying with Jayden Daniels for the QB2 of this class, Maye is a strong bet to give you a great ROI if he is on the board in the middle of the second round.


2.06 MarShawn Lloyd, RB 5’9″ 220lbs


I am happy to draft MarShawn Lloyd as the RB4. Lloyd has the potential to be the RB1 in this class. Injuries limited his production in college, but he averaged 7.1 yards per carry and 17.8 yards per reception as a senior. He has good burst and timing but needs to improve his vision.


2.07 Braelon Allen, RB, 6’1″ 235lbs


While not the biggest stan of Allen, his value here is undeniable. He’s a big back with surprising footwork and has developed some as a pass-catching option. In the right situation, he could thrive and be a screaming value. And if he doesn’t, well, you didn’t spend much to draft him.


2.08 Roman Wilson, WR, 5’11” 185lbs


Wilson has bonafide NFL talent but wasn’t necessarily able to show that in college. He will be a slot receiver at the next level. He has great hands and route running. One of my favorite traits of Wilson’s is his explosiveness all over the field. His size is definitely a worry and may be why he is not as high on most boards. He should be a Day 2 pick in the NFL draft and a second-round pick in fantasy rookie drafts.


2.09 Blake Corum, RB, 5’8″ 205


Wow, this feels like a bargain at this point of the draft. Corum has been one of the best RBs in the nation since coming out of St. Francis in Baltimore. He boasts a three-down skill set and has some of the best vision in the class. He is an adept pass blocker to boot, meaning he should be an immediate contributor in the NFL and on your dynasty squads. Even if his age means he is a one-contract player, I’m absolutely fine with that at this point of the draft.


2.10 Ricky Pearsall, WR, 6’1″ 189lbs


Pearsall will likely top out as a WR3. He has good speed but just average quickness; still, he manages to get open pretty easily. He has great footwork and can keep defensive backs off balance with his route pacing. Ricky Pearsall athletically compares favorably to Adam Thielen, and I will take that all day!!


2.11 Will Shipley, RB, 5’11” 209lbs


There are more than a few pivots here, as I could have gone with Keon Coleman or Ja’Tavion Sanders, but ultimately, I decided to go with a player I really like in this class – Will Shipley. Our Nerd Score agrees, putting him as the RB5 in the class on Nerd Score alone, and I think Shipley will be drafted earlier in the NFL draft than many dynasty players believe.


2.12 Malik Washington, WR, 5’8″ 191lbs


I view this wide receiver draft class as fool’s gold. There are three top guys….then a sea of question marks. Washington is not a question mark. On tape, he finds every spot in the zone to get open and then every crease to gain every yard. Despite his size, he runs like a running back. He had a great 4.47 40 at the combine and caught 1400+ yards in his only season at Virginia. One where he was named team captain. He is one of the few players that I think are locks to make an impact at the receiver position.
