May 2021 Mock Dynasty Rookie Draft (Five Rounds) Series (#1.08 of 12)


For the next 12 days, I’ll be releasing a Mock Dynasty Rookie Draft daily -- ones I conducted using the FantasyPros mock draft tool as my platform.

I used FantasyPros’ PRO tools, so I bumped up the value of RBs for their A.I. to reflect reality a little better/favoring RB-lust that usually happens.

I’m going start the series from the #1 spot, and then move back and spot and do a new Mock Draft every day until I get through drafting from each of the 12 spots in a typical DRD. I will add some brief commentary as I see fit, to give you an idea of what I’m doing/seeing in recent DRDs happening.

Here we go…


From the #8 pick spot:


1.1 Najee Harris

1.2 Ja'Marr Chase

1.3 Travis Etienne

1.4 Kyle Pitts

1.5 Javonte Williams

1.6 DeVonta Smith

1.7 Trevor Lawrence

1.8 Jaylen Waddle – I cannot stand Jaylen Waddle (his hype v. reality), but at this stage with what’s left…I either take Waddle to deal him away ASAP, and I mean ASAP…or I reach for Rondale Moore.

Because I (think I) can trade Waddle for Rondale + ____ after the draft, in theory, I take Waddle here – to move him ASAP.

1.9 Rashod Bateman

1.10 Justin Fields

1.11 Amari Rodgers

1.12 Rondale Moore


2.1 Kenneth Gainwell

2.2 Elijah Moore

2.3 Terrace Marshall

2.4 Kadarius Toney

2.5 Trey Sermon

2.6 Trey Lance

2.7 Zach Wilson

2.8 Michael Carter – They took my Zach Wilson right before me. So, a fresh 2nd-round pick here…a proxy on Zach, I’ll take his PPR back.

2.9 Jermar Jefferson

2.10 Mac Jones

2.11 Amon-Ra St. Brown

2.12 D'Wayne Eskridge


3.1 Chuba Hubbard

3.2 Tylan Wallace

3.3 Dyami Brown

3.4 Nico Collins

3.5 Pat Freiermuth

3.6 R. Stevenson

3.7 Kyle Trask

3.8 Josh Palmer – Don’t like any of my choices with my typicals like Collins, Eskridge, Trask gone…I’ll take Palmer to be a proxy hopeful on Justin Herbert someday.

3.9 Tamorrion Terry

3.10 Seth Williams

3.11 Elijah Mitchell

3.12 Cornell Powell


4.1 Javian Hawkins

4.2 Brevin Jordan

4.3 Tutu Atwell

4.4 Anthony Schwartz

4.5 Khalil Herbert

4.6 Larry Rountree III

4.7 Tommy Tremble

4.8 Chris Evans – To use as a hopeful Mixon handcuff or trade to Mixon owner at the right time. Tremble might have been my choice, but I got scooped by one pick.

4.9 Kylin Hill

4.10 Jaret Patterson

4.11 Pooka Williams Jr.

4.12 Cade Johnson


5.1 Demetric Felton

5.2 Shi Smith

5.3 Marquez Stevenson

5.4 Hunter Long

5.5 Sage Surratt

5.6 Dez Fitzpatrick

5.7 Davis Mills

5.8 Sam Ehlinger – First time that I’ve done this…I’ll take Wentz’s backup in case Wentz’s 2020 yips/meltdown extends into 2021.

Ehlinger is a savvy, gritty-gutty rookie who would probably step in as a rookie and just ‘will’ himself to decent play. And he likes to run and bully tacklers. He’d be a decent little pop for FF if forced in…maybe. I mean, everything is a reach here/now.

5.9 Marlon Williams

5.10 Dazz Newsome

5.11 I. Smith-Marsette

5.12 Jaelon Darden
