A 12-part series, DRD mock drafting from each of the (typical) 12 draft spots to give an early idea the direction I'm heading early on in the post-NFL Draft process.  

Using the FantasyPros rookie draft tool, which isn't great but is useful for this exercise…and reflects a good amount of the mainstream thinking. We can argue their ADPs, etc., but they're close/within a margin of error on their top 30-40-50…close enough.

The rules are – I HAVE TO make the pick. In reality, I want to trade out of the first round except in places where I think I can safely get Anthony Richardson, if QB is a need/asset to take for my situation.  I only have two real 'missions' in this year's 'sad' DRD (not as juicy as last year's DRD) -- I want Anthony Richardson AND Dalton Kincaid. If I can't get them in the draft, I'll work on it this summer via trade…or in August preseason month hysteria, etc.

*Article picture is from the movie 'Trading Places' -- when the main characters had manipulated the orange juice futures market and were doing some old-school stock market selling shares in the pit...which is what I see in this year's DRD: SELL-SELL-SELL (the picks)!! Sell them to the frenetic lovers of 'picks'.



1.1 Bijan Robinson

1.2 Jaxon Smith-Njigba

1.3 Jordan Addison

1.4 Jahmyr Gibbs

1.5 C.J. Stroud

1.6 Anthony Richardson -- Gonna be a stretch of mock with AR selected first by me…if I get scooped, then it's Kincaid time.

1.7 Tyjae Spears

1.8 Quentin Johnston

1.9 Zay Flowers

1.10 Zach Charbonnet

1.11 Bryce Young

1.12 Marvin Mims


2.1 Kayshon Boutte

2.2 Josh Downs

2.3 Michael Mayer

2.4 Dalton Kincaid

2.5 Tank Bigsby

2.6 Kendre Miller -- No more Kincaid falling to me from here on in. We go with Kendre getting ready for the AK suspension bounce.

2.7 Jalin Hyatt

2.8 Devon Achane

2.9 Roschon Johnson

2.10 Sam LaPorta

2.11 Will Levis

2.12 Israel Abanikanda


3.1 Zach Evans

3.2 Sean Tucker

3.3 Cedric Tillman

3.4 Darnell Washington

3.5 Luke Musgrave (one of the only alternatives I would consider in the 3rd)

3.6 Chase Brown -- Hoping to go 12-for-12 in the 12 mocks with CB here…

3.7 Rashee Rice

3.8 Eric Gray

3.9 DeWayne McBride

3.10 Jonathan Mingo

3.11 Hendon Hooker

3.12 Evan Hull


4.1 J. Moreno-Cropper

4.2 Puka Nacua

4.3 Jayden Reed

4.4 Parker Washington

4.5 Jake Haener

4.6 Michael Wilson -- Wilson as often as I can here in the 4th.

4.7 Trey Palmer

4.8 Deuce Vaughn

4.9 Tucker Kraft

4.10 Xavier Hutchinson

4.11 A.T. Perry

4.12 Tyler Scott


5.1 Nathaniel Dell

5.2 Kenny McIntosh

5.3 Mohamed Ibrahim

5.4 Bryce Ford-Wheaton

5.5 C. Rodriguez

5.6 Elijah Higgins -- Round 5 wild card pick time…different rookies each mock now -- just to bring up other long shots. Higgins being converted to TE on a Miami team with Durham Smythe as their starter…Miami is not chock full of TE talent. Not that Higgins is going to start -- just that he could be part of a 'NASCAR package' in the passing game as a WR turned TE, and maybe has some moments or uncovers skills converting to TE no one knew he had?

5.7 Clayton Tune

5.8 Rakim Jarrett

5.9 D. Thompson-Robinson

5.10 Luke Schoonmaker

5.11 Dontayvion Wicks

5.12 Andrei Iosivas
