2024 Offense/IDP Mixed Rookie Mock Draft

We wrangled up some friends and did a pre-Draft offense and defense rookie mock draft. Here's the results!

For this mock, we added offensive rookies in with the IDP rookies, and I wanted to bring some of my favorite people in the space together for a mock draft. We will get together after the landing spots are in stone, but it’s critical to look before, too. Some rookie drafts are held before. Also, before the draft, you get a better idea of the player with no system, and the draft is purely projection and talent-based.

Let’s quit beating around the bush and get to the mock. We are drafting as a Superflex league, TE premium, with balanced scoring for the defensive guys. I like IDP123, where cornerbacks and defensive tackles score on the same level as all other positions (or at least close). After each mock drafters’ first pick, I will give each of them a short intro. Thank you for reading!

1.01 Caleb Williams, QB USC

Williams is the obvious #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and will be as well in any rookie Super Flex Draft. He showcased terrific arm talent and escapability in college. Williams has great weapons at his disposal with elite receivers in DJ Moore and Keenan Allen, an ascending tight end in Cole Kmet, and a great receiving running back in D’Andre Swift. The sky is the limit.

1.02 Drake Maye, QB North Carolina

Maye is not a bad consolation prize here. Typically, when you’re picking this high in the draft, you need a QB. Maye can be a solid young QB to start a rebuild around for dynasty managers.

  • Jon Glosser – Senior Writer, Ranker, and IDP Team Lead at Dynasty Nerds

1.03 Marvin Harrison Jr., WR Ohio State

As one of the safest players in the draft, MHJ was a lock after the first two QBs went off the board. Harrison is a complete receiver and capable of being the WR1 overall in the right offense. He’s adept at creating separation, plays smart, and has ridiculous hands.

  • Dwight Peebles – Writer and Editor at Dynasty Nerds and Campus2Canton

1.04 Jayden Daniels, QB LSU

Daniels is a dual-threat quarterback with elite athleticism for the position. All rookie quarterbacks have some risk, but in the Superflex, they become quite valuable, and Daniels is in the top three of this class based on his pocket presence, size, and rushing ability.

  • Leo – Founder of RPO Football, #1 Weekly IDP Ranker at FantasyPros for 2022 and 2023, and IDP Analyst for FTN Fantasy

1.05 Rome Odunze, WR Washington

With the Big 3 at QB and MHJ off the board, I took the best player available in Odunze. With a TE prem in this league, I strongly considered Bowers here, but a talent like Odunze was too hard to pass on.

  • Hollywood – Co-Host of the Devy IDP Grind Podcast and contributor at IDP Nation and 13 Horns

1.06 Malik Nabers, WR LSU

Harrison might be the number one non-quarterback in this class for Superflex drafts, but Nabers isn’t far behind him. Nabers is an elite prospect with the size, speed, and skills to be a team’s WR1. I’m delighted to land him here with the sixth pick of the draft.

1.07 Brock Bowers, TE Georgia

With this draft being TEP, I was shocked to land Bowers, on whom I had a 1.06 grade. Target hogs are hard to find, and this prospect was 20% of his team’s offense as a freshman, then continued to a 23% share of an entire offense again last season.

  • IDP Hunter – writer for Fantasy Six Pack and IDP Guys, Top 4 ECR IDP Ranker for FantasyPros

1.08 Xavier Worthy, WR Texas

Worthy has speed for days and should be an exciting deep threat for the team that drafts him. His build is slight, but we have seen others like DeVonta Smith allay some of those fears over size in recent years.

  • Justice – Co-Host of the Devy IDP Grind and G5 Hive Podcast, IDP Specialist for Campus2Canton

1.09 Brian Thomas Jr., WR LSU

Thomas is a 6’4” wideout from LSU who led all collegiate receivers in touchdowns in 2023 and played some special teams in 2022. Not only does Thomas have an NFL-ready frame, but he also ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. I currently have Thomas as my WR4 of the class, and I believe he has the tools to contribute immediately to an NFL offense.

  • Mase – Content Creator at RPO Football, IDP Ranker at FantasyPros

1.10 JJ McCarthy, QB Michigan

McCarthy, to me, is the third-best quarterback in this class. I feel he is more pro-ready than Daniels. McCarthy’s accuracy woes during the combine don’t worry me at all since he completed over 70% of his passes in 2023. With likely first-round capital, McCarthy is a steal at 1.10.

  • JoeytheTooth

1.11 Jonathon Brooks, RB Texas

This is a nice spot for Brooks. It’s not often RB1 comes off the board this late in the first round but I’ll take it. Brooks is rehabbing from injury but could be a great value if he returns to form at any point this season.

  • Glosser

1.12 Troy Franklin, WR Oregon

In this WR class, sometimes Franklin is the overlooked receiver and could end up being a massive value in rookie drafts. He’s got elite speed, insane release off the line, runs detailed routes, and is dangerous after the catch. For his size, he isn’t as good at the catch point as you would expect, but Franklin creates separation on his own and doesn’t need to out-physical defenders.

  • Dwight

2.01 Adonai Mitchell, WR Texas

I was hoping Franklin would last one more slot, but I will take the next best WR on my board in Mitchell. He has nice size (6’2″) and speed (4.34) but has offered very little after the catch in college. He may take some time to develop, but he has the potential to be a number-one receiver from the outside.

  • Leo

2.02 Jaylen Wright, RB Tennessee

Having secured a top playmaker like Odunze in the first round, I wanted to get an RB with a ton of upside and potential. I knew that Brooks would be gone, so I circled Wright as my top target. I was worried that he might be gone at this point, but I got lucky and secured what an RB in today’s modern NFL game looks like and is: a speed/ size/talent combo that many don’t possess.

  • Hollywood

2.03 Keon Coleman, WR Florida State

Coleman brings size (6’3″ and 213 pounds) and the ability to go get it with his highlight reel high-pointing ability. Coleman disappointed in running the 40 (4.61 seconds) but put his play speed and hands on display, turning heads during the gauntlet drill at the combine. If he can improve as a separator, he could be a problem with his size, ball skills, and solid hands.

  • Kyle

2.04 Ladd McConkey, WR Georgia

McConkey emerged at the Combine as a top-tier player with a 4.39-second 40-yard dash (90th percentile). He already was a good real-life player, but now PFF also has him noted as an elite prospect. McConkey is the last of the top-tier wide receivers and commonly gets ranked as WR7 and generally taken after the four QBs and one tight end come off the board; therefore, 1.12-2.02 value. He’s the last name I consider at the end of the first round during the draft while the run at WR happens. The buzz on him is his Impressive YAC yards and over 600 yards AFTER catch w/14.3 YPF and 9TD. He plays two positions outstanding 63% of snaps out wide and 39% in the slot. As your drafts get closer, he won’t go this late, but I appreciate the value here and the opportunity to draft a two-option player in the mid-second round.

  • IDPHunter

2.05 Trey Benson, RB Florida State

This running back class is weak and where they go in Fantasy Drafts will likely heavily depend on what teams draft them. Benson offers the potential of a three-down skill set, but he will need to work on things for that to materialize. For one, he has to be more physical when running using his size. Here’s hoping he gets a great landing spot.

  • Justice

2.06 Jared Verse, EDGE Florida State

Verse is my current DL1 and is among the top defenders in this year’s draft class. He has an NFL-ready frame and dominates in the trenches with a handful of moves and raw power that he doesn’t always have to rely on. Verse is the kind of player with the potential and ability to hit the ground running and quickly become a star in the league.

  • Mase

2.07 Blake Corum, RB Michigan

Corum is a north-to-south runner with elite contact balance. His college production was great, and he has all the tools to be a three-down back. Coaches will love his ability to pick up the blitz, which could earn him extra playing time. Corum is one of the top-backs in this draft, though a bit unexciting. He can still be productive.

  • JoeyTheTooth

2.08 Dallas Turner, EDGE Alabama

Turner is among the top EDGE defenders in this class. I love this value of getting a young EDGE rusher with high fantasy-scoring potential.

  • Glosser

2.09 Payton Wilson, LB NC State

When he’s on the field, Wilson is a nearly perfect old-school linebacker. He’s got an elite grasp of the game, and his IQ puts him in the right place more often than not. Wilson is a great tackler and doesn’t miss a runner when they are in his crosshairs. He’s 24 and has an injury history, but when he’s on the field – Wilson makes plays.

  • Dwight

2.10 Bo Nix, QB Oregon

You can never have enough quarterbacks in Superflex, especially ones that may be drafted on Day 1. Nix led the NCAA in completion percentage and passing touchdowns this past season. Can he produce outside of the Oregon offense? Time will tell, but I’m willing to roll the dice in the second round.

  • Leo

2.11 Edgerrin Cooper, LB Texas A&M

I had a little earlier to take an IDP player than I would have liked, but with a run started this round, I felt I had to get one of the top guys. Cooper plays a prem position on defense and is PBA at the position with Wilson gone.

  • Hollywood

2.12 Roman Wilson, WR Michigan

Wilson has legit speed to stretch the field while showing physicality at the catch point for a smaller receiver. Michigan featured a run-heavy offense, but Wilson was key to their success when they did air it out, hauling in 12 touchdowns in 2023. Wilson could be a weapon in the slot and brings speed defenses need to account for. There’s plenty of upside to his game, and a prime landing spot could boost his stock.

  • Kyle

3.01 Marshawn Lloyd, RB USC

Last round I was involved in the WR run, snagging the last tier one player. In this round, I attempt to create the RB run that usually happens in the middle second round of SF drafts. This is a draft where I am okay waiting on RB as long as I get a top-five weapon because they all have question marks. Not to mention, this is a draft where most runners lost their value. I could argue two, maybe three, have started trending upward.

Lloyd is trending up for the Combine at just the right time. The projected RB4-5 in this draft class fell to me at 3.01. That’s a steal. Lloyd separated himself at the Combine ahead of a few others ranked higher by providing 4.46 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 25 bench press reps, and better-than-average testing numbers in the vertical and board jump. He also had 21 TD in his collegiate career, so to get him here and not in the mid-second, where he generally goes, was sweet value to take. I happily make this pick, expecting the run at this position to continue.

  • IDPHunter

3.02 Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE Texas

In a TE premium, as we assumed in this mock, give me the TE2 in this draft class. Sanders has the tools to be an impact playmaker from the tight end position. And he may just be scratching the surface of what he can do, as he primarily played on the defensive side until his junior year.

  • Justice

3.03 Braelon Allen, RB Wisconsin

Allen has become one of the lesser-talked-about names in the draft class, yet he has phenomenal potential. When you first see Allen on film, his size immediately stands out. He is also only 20 years old. The true knock on Allen’s game is that he doesn’t have an immediate burst to hit the line of scrimmage with the speed and power you would like to see at the next level. If Allen can produce and read lanes as he did in the 2022 season, he will be a steal in the middle rounds of the NFL Draft.

  • Mase

3.04 Laiatu Latu, EDGE UCLA

Latu is easily the top defender for IDP in this draft. He is leaps and bounds better than any other EDGE in this class. His technique is noticeably better, with terrific hand usage, strength, athleticism, and a full arsenal of pass-rushing moves. Latu is bendy, strong, and explosive and exhibits an elite-level IQ. Latu should be the first IDP off the board, and landing him at 3.04 is gold.

  • JoeyTheTooth

3.05 Bucky Irving, RB Oregon

The dynasty landscape at the RB position needs an overhaul. I like taking a shot at one of the most talented pass catchers in this class. If Irving can carve out a role as a rookie, it’s a big bonus.

  • Glosser

3.06 Chop Robinson, EDGE Penn State

I love Robinson‘s burst off the line, and he’s got a really good bend for an EDGE rusher. He converts speed to power really well, but I worry about his balance and handwork; they could hold him back from being an elite pass-rusher. His production in college was meager compared to what you would like to see, also.

  • Dwight

3.07 Michael Penix Jr., QB Washington

Penix‘s history of injuries makes him a risky pick, but he has the upside that a team may draft him as their franchise quarterback. His strong arm helped him lead the NCAA in passing yards in 2023.

  • Leo

3.08 Malachi Corley, WR Western Kentucky

One of my favorite prospects in this class will make some team very happy. That’s all Hollywood had to say: a man of many words. To read our full write-up on the Hilltoppers’ receiver, check it out here!

  • Hollywood

3.09 Junior Colson, LB Michigan

At 6’2″ and 238 pounds, Colson features an enticing combination of size and athleticism. He’s a strong run defender, with good technique and is aggressive getting downhill. Colson has the skill set to stay on the field for all three downs and profiles well for IDP production.

  • Kyle

3.10 Ricky Pearsall, WR Florida

At 23 years old, the perfect dynasty stash may have just fallen to me. Pearsall ran a 4.41 40 time with a 97% vertical jump, 96% three-cone, 97% short shuttle, and already had the reputation of being a good route runner. I love early drafts because guys like this will fall to you. The reason he is unknown and not highly regarded as one of the top eight wide receivers is he did not have an elite QB throwing to him in College, so take advantage of scouting this player early.

  • IDPHunter

3.11 Jalen McMillan, WR Washington

McMillan is gonna make an NFL team really happy on draft day and fantasy owners as well. Whoever drafts him gets a likely upgrade at the slot wide receiver position. His route-running prowess should get him on the field early and help him to be a first-year contributor for both NFL and Fantasy teams alike.

  • Justice

3.12 Xavier Legette, WR South Carolina

The 6’1” speedy wideout had a breakout season in 2023 and is also a solid special teams returner. His route running and inability to get a decent release against press coverage are concerning, but Legette is amazing at coming down with the ball in a one-on-one scenario.

  • Mase

4.01 Malik Washington, WR Virginia

Washington is a bit undersized but showed it not to be a problem in college. He was one of the top collegiate receivers in 2023, showing an innate ability to separate and win at the catch point. Washington has a nice release package, and though it is smaller in stature, it plays with great functional strength.

  • JoeyTheTooth

4.02 Will Shipley, RB Clemson

This is another good spot to take an upside running back. Shipley is a solid athlete, and we hope a good landing spot will see him earn some snaps early in 2024. In the right offense, this pick has massive upside.

  • Glosser

4.03 Ray Davis, RB Kentucky

Davis is my favorite back in the class, and if he gets the draft capital on a team with need – watch out. Davis has vision, contact balance, and the ability to break big runs on every play. He doesn’t have elite breakaway speed, but other than that, he’s a complete back.

  • Dwight

4.04 Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB Clemson

Trotter is the best linebacker available here. He is an inside linebacker with the football intelligence to call the defense. He might not have the athletic upside of Wilson and Cooper, but his tackling ability and instincts give him a solid floor.

  • Leo

4.05 Cedric Gray, LB North Carolina

I was surprised that Gray was still on the board here. He’s a very good player at a premium IDP position.

For more information on Gray, check out this thread!

  • Hollywood

4.06 Audric Estime, RB Notre Dame

Estime has been ultra-productive since taking over the starting job for the Fighting Irish, rushing for 2,260 yards and 29 touchdowns over his last two seasons. Estime is a bigger back who profiles more as an early-down type, but he has some upside with the right landing spot.

  • Kyle

4.07 Chris Braswell, EDGE Alabama

This defensive lineman positional group of this draft class is so long with depth you could wait long and still get a difference-maker. I wanted to wait as long as I could and still get a top-five player. My DE5 is Braswell, a five-star recruit who should easily get playing time transitioning to either the four or five tech in the NFL. Alabama did also showcase Braswell out of multiple alignments, using him as a rush linebacker in 7 or 9-technique but also to defensive end in a 4-man front. He is superior in both the pass and the run. The tape shows in the run game, he will set the edge and very rarely gets tossed.

Braswell has some outstanding College stats as well. With 13 sacks, 10 QB hits, and 33 pressures, this is going to create some news on draft day. That pressure rate I mentioned gets him to the Quarterback 20% of the time.

He stands a fringe-first-round talent and is slightly below a tier than the top four DLs on this list, however, is steadier than at least two of them in regards to health and overall College production so felt this was a good deal here.

  • IDPHunter

4.08 Darius Robinson, EDGE Missouri

Robinson is one of the more intriguing defensive prospects in this draft. He offers some versatility to play inside and outside. I don’t think you want him playing inside all the time, but I can see him playing it some. If you are in a position-specific league and Robinson gets the DT tag, then that would be a coup for his fantasy outlook. Robinson plays the run well, which should offer a good floor for his fantasy outlook in terms of tackles.

  • Justice

4.09 Ben Sinnott, TE Kansas State

Sinnott, a very athletic tight end who ran a 4.68 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and had a Raw Athletic Score of 9.75, has seen his name and draft stock rise to around the top of the potential rookie tight end player list. Sinnott isn’t explicitly known for his blocking, though he does have the strength and mentality to do so. It’s something he will have to work at in the NFL. As for being a pass catcher, Sinnott is an effective route runner from all over the field, and if he lands on a team with a significant hole at the tight end position, I think Sinnott could be a real gem in this draft with room to develop.

  • Mase

4.10 Javon Baker, WR UCF

Baker blew up when he transferred to UCF from Alabama. He showed great ability to separate with great breaks in his routes and great strength at the catch point. Baker has had some focus drops, but his size and route running are NFL-ready. He could start Day 1 in the right spot.

  • JoeyTheTooth

4.11 Devontez Walker, WR North Carolina

I love the talent here. Walker is still raw, but he has the potential to develop with some coaching. Would love to see him land with an established QB in a productive offense.

  • Glosser

4.12 Tyler Nubin, S Minnesota

Nubin is a ball-hawking safety with decent run-support skills and is worth a shot at this point in the draft. I worry he may not get the opportunities for tackles, but he could get enough, coupled with turnovers, to be a solid DB3/4 for fantasy.

  • Dwight

5.01 Jermaine Burton, WR Alabama

Burton has the speed and ball skills to be a deep threat from day one, but for him to be more than just a third receiving option, he will need to improve his ability to make plays in the middle of the field. I’m willing to take a chance on this former 4-star recruit.

  • Leo

5.02 Ty’Ron Hopper, LB Missouri

Hopper is the best LB still on the board and gives me another option at the most important defensive position.

  • Hollywood

5.03 Bryon Murphy II, DT Texas

Murphy is an explosive, gap-penetrating defensive tackle with a quick first step and effective counters. He’s a handful on the interior and looks to be a first-round lock. Landing him in the fifth round feels like a nice value in true-position formats like this mock.

  • Kyle

5.04 Jacob Cowing, WR Arizona

Cowing won’t go in the fifth in your drafts, as he sort of fell to me here here. What makes him an outstanding prospect is that he has a nose for the end zone. Stats tell his story. His sophomore season- 41-691-3, and junior season- was 69-1,354-7; then, he transferred to Arizona and did this 85-1,034-7 (12.2) line in 2022. What makes this so unique is that he played both wideout and slot for two different schools and was still able to be successful. When you are this late in drafts, look for players whose games translate well to the next level, as this guy could play anywhere and at any position remarkably well.

  • IDPHunter

5.05 Johnny Newton, DT Illinois

In a DT-required league, Newton should be in the top two defensive tackles taken. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see him participate in the NFL Combine or a Pro Day as he is recovering from a foot injury (broken foot) that he played with last season. Newton was the 2023 Big Ten Defensive Player of The Year and was known for his pass rush skills, which are elite playing from the interior. Newton led all defensive tackles with 102 pressures over the last two seasons, and that asset is an elite trait in defensive tackle-required leagues.

  • Justice

5.06 Mohamed Kamara, EDGE Colorado State

Kamara played at Colorado State as an EDGE for five years, though his first two years didn’t show much on the stat sheet; in his past three years, Kamara had nothing but production (138 pressures and 29 sacks since 2021). He is slightly undersized for an EDGE but plays with an intensity that some NFL teams will love. Kamara may not be a true day-one starter in the NFL, but he could develop into a solid pass rush specialist as long he gets away from primarily relying on mostly power in the pass rush.

  • Mase

5.07 Bralen Trice, EDGE Washington

As my good friend from PFF Jon Macri put it, “Brice has a bull in a China shop style of pass rush.” He is an animal with unbelievable strength that thrives off contact. Brice has an incredible leg drive and a body-moving bull rush. He had scheme versatility that could see him play DE in 3-4 or 4-3 base. He’s not as bendy or athletic as some of the other prospects, but his tape still pops.

  • JoeyTheTooth

5.08 Jaden Hicks, S Washington State

My personal favorite pick of the draft. Hicks is an electric versatile safety who can rack up fantasy points if he earns a starting role. This is a big-time luxury pick for IDP managers in the late fifth round.

  • Glosser

5.09 Cooper DeJean, S Iowa

It’s funny, but after Glosser’s comment, this is my favorite pick of the draft based on value and player. DeJean is a ‘cornerback’ who will likely end up playing safety, and he’s a PLAYMAKER. He’s got a nose for the ball, range, and instincts, and he adds value as a potential kick returner.

  • Dwight

5.10 Isaac Guerendo, RB Louisville

Guerendo caught my attention with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. He may not play as fast on the field, but I’m encouraged that he also has third-down abilities, both catching and blocking. If he develops and lands with the right team, there is a path to a three-down role.

  • Leo

5.11 Isaiah Davis, RB South Dakota St.

Let’s finish off my draft with an offensive weapon. Davis is one heck of an RB and can help a team immediately in all three phases.

  • Hollywood

5.12 Ja’Lynn Polk, WR Washington

Odunze gets most of the love for the Washington pass catchers, but Polk had a very productive season in his own right, racking up 1,159 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in 2023. Polk is ideal size at 6’1″ and 203 pounds and features a solid, reliable set of hands. I’m pleased to land a player with Polk’s upside with the last pick of the draft.
