This is our Dynasty Nerds Devy team’s (#DevyNerds) November Devy mock draft. We will do one a month and include some updated Dynasty Nerds Devy average draft positions (ADP). Please, check out the links to our Devy spotlights brought to you by the Dynasty Nerds Devy team at the beginning of each round.

Round 1 Dynasty Nerds Devy Spotlights: Bijan Robinson, Caleb Williams, Bryce Young, Jahmyr Gibbs, C.J. Stroud, Marvin Harrison Jr., TreVeyon Henderson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, & Nick Singleton.
We’ve officially reached 2023 prospect fatigue. This is a theme in this November mock draft, as the 2023 prospects are falling a bit. And the underclassmen are rising up the board (very noticeable in Round 2). Two big risers for round one are Marvin Harrison Jr. and Caleb Williams. They both look like the best NFL prospects at their respective positions, even though they are only sophomores. The absolute biggest riser is Quinshon Judkins, the outstanding true freshman running back at Ole Miss. He went from relatively unknown in early September to a first-round Devy selection here in November. With Judkins and Singleton selected in the first round, the 2025 NFL draft class is already well represented in the Devy community. The big fallers in round one are TreVeyon Henderson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. They are both dealing with injuries this season and have been significantly less productive than last year.
Round 2 Dynasty Nerds Devy Spotlights: Drew Allar, Jordan Addison, Quentin Johnston, Brock Bowers, Zach Evans, Kayshon Boutte, Sean Tucker, Will Shipley, Luther Burden, & Braelon Allen.
The big fallers in round two are Zach Evans, Kayshon Boutte, Sean Tucker, and Braelon Allen. Evans and Boutte were consistent first-round Devy picks for the past four or five months. And are now falling to the second round. Quinshon Judkins is out-producing fellow Rebel Zach Evans, and you’ve seen that manifest in Devy drafts. Even though Evans is part of the 2023 class and with Judkins, you will have to wait until the 2025 class. Prospect fatigue. True freshman Drew Allar, Luther Burden, and sophomore Raheim Sanders were the risers in the second round of this November mock.
Round 3 Dynasty Nerds Devy Spotlights: Blake Corum, Donovan Edwards, Evan Stewart, Devon Achane, Michael Mayer, Mario Williams, & Anthony Richardson.
After very productive 2022 seasons, Blake Corum and Zach Charbonnet are rising Devy boards. Xavier Worthy and Tank Bigsby are the fallers in Round 3. A few months ago, Worthy was consistently a late first or early second round selection, and Bigsby was consistently a second-rounder who both fell to the third round in November.
Round 4 Dynasty Nerds Devy Spotlights: Branson Robinson, Jaydon Blue, & Cedric Tillman.
Kendre Miller is rising for the same reasons as Blake Corum and Zach Charbonnet. Therefore, I expect Miller to be up there with them in at least round three next month. Ja’Tavion Sanders goes from a non-selection in our previous five Nerds Devy mocks to a mid-fourth-round selection. It’s looking more and more likely that Sanders will be Devy TE2 (behind Brock Bowers) after Michael Mayer moves up to the NFL next season.
Round 5 Dynasty Nerds Devy Spotlights: Parker Washington.
This is the first month Hendon Hooker and Barion Brown make it into the Devy mock. Albeit, the bigger story is all the Devys that have fallen out of the draft entirely after being relatively consistent Devy picks. Those fallers are Will Levis, Jermaine Burton, Tyler Van Dyke, Kendall Milton, Marvin Mims, Rakim Jarrett, Michael Trigg, Jaxson Dart, Troy Franklin, Tyler Harrell, Nathaniel Dell, and a few others.
Just like in June/July/August/September/October, there were a lot of Ohio State (6), Clemson (5), Texas (4), Alabama (4), Penn State (3) & USC (3) Devy players selected. And a few other schools with multiple players taken each.
You have seen how each round went down; now, let’s look at each team’s roster. It’s just as important and informative to see the roster breakouts as it is to see the draft order. Furthermore, when you look at it from the roster perspective, you can get an idea of how you can build a Devy pipeline of all different shapes. Look at the Rosters picture above for some excellent examples of building an effective Devy squad. And here is one of our Nerds drafter’s comments on how his Devy draft went.
Erik Kortz (@ekballer)
“I love this roster – I soaked up value throughout. Drake Maye will be the consensus 1.01 or 1.02 by fall. He’s playing Heisman-worthy ball as an red-shirt freshman. He’s a lock for a top 5 NFL draft slot come ’24. Zach Evans at 2.05 is an easy call as well- while his stock has fallen in Devy circles, he’s still headed for a future as a featured back in the NFL. I love getting Charbonnet at 3.08. The 6’1″ 220lb senior has averaged 7.5 ypc as the engine of a productive UCLA offense, and he’s done damage in the passing game as well, rounding out a draft profile that should have him in the top 100 picks.”
“At 4.05, I scooped Branson Robinson, the 220lb freshman from Georgia. He’s looked the part of the next great Georgia back in limited work this fall and should have a lead role for the dawgs next year. Finally, I wrapped the draft with Tennessee standout Jalin Hyatt at 5.08. I don’t understand the Hyatt hate – how is this guy lasting to the 56th pick here? Sure, he’s not a complete wide receiver, and he’ll likely stay in a slot role at the next level, but there’s no way a guy with his speed and production falls out of the second round in the NFL draft.”
