Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: *3 FULL ROUNDS* Rookie Draft Tips and Strategy – PlayerProfiler and FantasyPros!

by Theo Gremminger · Featured

We are less than a month away from the NFL Draft! It is officially peak Dynasty Season! Dynasty Managers everywhere are deep-diving into this exciting 2024 rookie class. At PlayerProfiler, we are doing everything we can to get ready for the NFL Draft and dominate our rookie drafts! For the second year in a row, the Sonic Truth Dynasty Podcast was joined by our friends at FantasyPros for a LOADED Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft. This year, we were able to complete three full rounds. On the PlayerProfiler side, I was joined by Cody Carpentier and Alan Seslowsky of RotoWire, and FantasyPros was represented by Pat Fitzmaurice, Thor Nystrom, and Derek Brown. 

Here is how the draft played out and some context with my picks. What picks did you like? What picks did you think WERE AWFUL? Check out the full broadcast of the show if you want to see some further context of each selection:

The format we drafted for is PPR, Superflex with a 1.5 Point Premium Scoring for tight ends with a snake format (Team that picks 6th also picks 7th).


Alan Seslowsky 1- Caleb Williams QB USC

Pat Fitzmaurice 2- Marvin Harrison Jr. WR Ohio State

Thor Nystrom 3- Jayden Daniels QB LSU

Derek Brown 4- Malik Nabers WR LSU

Cody Carpentier 5- Rome Odunze WR Washington

Theo Gremminger 6- Drake Maye QB UNC

Pick Notes: I was pleasantly surprised to be able to draft Maye at the 1.06. I agree on this group’s assessment that he is the QB3 behind Jayden Daniels.

However, I view him as an immediate starter on Day 1 of his NFL career. Maye has a big arm and underrated athleticism. He is a tremendous value here.

Theo Gremminger 7- Brock Bowers TE Georgia 

Pick Notes: Bowers was another player that was a slam dunk for me in this range of the draft. I value Bowers as a top 3 Dynasty TE already. If there was no snake in this draft, I may have pulled the trigger on Bowers at the 1.06 and let QB fall. Additionally, Bowers is about as much of a can’t miss talent at his position as any player in this draft class. He is a mismatch for opposing defenses. 

Picks 8-12 (ROUND 1)

Cody Carpentier 8- J.J. McCarthy QB Michigan 

Derek Brown 9- Troy Franklin WR Oregon

Thor Nystrom 10- Brian Thomas Jr. WR LSU

Pat Fitzmaurice 11- Keon Coleman WR FSU

Alan Seslowsky 12- Trey Benson RB FSU

Best Round One Value: I loved my selection of Maye. Benson at the 12 spot seems strong as well. If he lands well during the NFL Draft, he will be the 1.09 in Superflex. 

Worst Round Two Value: Troy Franklin ahead of Brian Thomas Jr.– a player who could be selected 20 spots ahead of him in the NFL Draft- seems like a reach. 


Alan Seslowsky 13- Xavier Worthy WR Texas

Pat Fitzmaurice 14- Ladd McConkey WR Georgia

Thor Nystrom 15- Ricky Pearsall WR Florida

Derek Brown 16- Javon Baker WR UCF

Cody Carpentier 17- Adonai Mitchell WR Texas 

Theo Gremminger 18- Blake Corum RB Michigan

Pick Notes: Corum is never a pick in Dynasty Rookie Mock Drafts where everyone gets all excited and says, “great pick!” But what Corum does represent is strong value and an RB that is going to be selected on Day 2 of the NFL Draft.

Corum’s 4.53 40-yard dash was a reassuring number from a running back with his sort of collegiate production. I think that Corum will be a continual RB2 at the next level. 

Theo Gremminger 19- Jonathon Brooks RB Texas 

Pick Notes: I went RB-RB because I could not pass up the value of Brooks. If Brooks would have stayed healthy this season, he would have been the 1.09 in this draft- or higher. Despite his torn ACL in November, Brooks should still be one of the draft’s first RBs selected. Additionally, he has two ability and could be a three-down producer in the NFL. 

Picks 20-24 (ROUND 2)

Cody Carpentier 20- Brenden Rice WR USC

Derek Brown 21- Marshawn Lloyd RB USC 

Thor Nystrom 22- Jaylen Wright RB Tennessee 

Pat Fitzmaurice 23- Michael Penix Jr. QB Washington

Alan Seslowsky 24- Bo Nix QB Oregon

Best Round Two Value: Worthy is a strong value at the 2.01. If Penix is selected in the Round 1 of the NFL Draft, he would rise up significantly in rookie drafts.

Worst Round Two Value: Brenden Rice is a reach here at 19th overall. Cody is a great evaluator of NFL talent, but Rice being selected ahead of Roman Wilson and the RBs and QBs that were drafted behind him is a little aggressive. 


Alan Seslowsky 25- Roman Wilson WR Michigan 

Pat Fitzmaurice 26- Braelon Allen RB Wisconsin

Thor Nystrom 27- Ja’Tavion Sanders TE Texas

Derek Brown 28- Johnny Wilson WR FSU 

Cody Carpentier 29- Spencer Rattler QB South Carolina 

Theo Gremminger 30- Xavier Legette WR South Carolina 

Pick Notes: Legette is a polarizing player for many fantasy analysts. Therefore, I could not pass him up here. I understand the red flags. Legette is a 23-year-old with only one season of college production.

However, Legette will also be a Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft. He has elite athleticism, running a 4.39 40 and posting a 40-inch vertical. Additionally, he has great size (221 pounds). 

Theo Gremminger 31- Ben Sinnott TE Kansas State 

Pick Notes: After the NFL Draft, this pick could look like a bargain. Sinnott is in the mix for TE2 in this class and will challenge Sanders to be the second TE selected in the NFL Draft. Much like Legette, Sinnott had a huge performance at the NFL Combine. He ran a faster 40-yard dash (4.68) than Sanders and posted the highest vertical jump among all TEs. Additionally, Sinnott led Kansas State in receiving yards and receiving TDs. Sinnott is a fine pick this late in a Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft.

Picks 32-36 (ROUND 3)

Cody Carpentier 32- Will Shipley RB Clemson

Derek Brown 33- Malik Washington WR Virginia 

Thor Nystrom 34- Kimani Vidal RB Troy State 

Pat Fitzmaurice 35- Ray Davis RB Kentucky 

Alan Seslowsky 36- Bucky Irving RB Oregon

Best Round Three Value: While I did not love Cody’s selection of Rice, drafting Shipley this late – especially after his Pro Day- will look very sharp after The NFL Draft.

Shipley has a good shot at being selected on Day 2. With his pass catching ability and athleticism, if he obtains significant NFL Draft capital, expect him to be a Rookie Draft riser. 

Worst Round Three Value: I love Kimani Vidal, but this was more of a flag plant selection for Thor Nystrom than a value one. In some Mock Rookie Drafts, Vidal falls to the fifth round. That being said, I took Vidal in a recent dynasty startup.
