2020 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft, Five Rounds with Commentary (from the 1.07 Spot)

2020 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft, Five Rounds with Commentary (from the 1.07 Spot)

 

1st-Round (pick 1.07)

How come I never get to be in a mock rookie draft where Jonathan Taylor is the 5th pick!!! Come on Fantasy Pros! I guess that could randomly happen…once in a blue moon.

Totally side note…I’m warming up to D’Andre Swift – as a higher impact PPR event in 2020/right away than I was projecting before. I’d love for him to fall to the 7th spot, and he has some lately (people seem to have collectively turned on him) but it didn’t happen here. The fear that he splits with Kerryon Johnson is driving his vibe down among the masses – but that’s not much of a threat, and Swift can operate as passing game back worst case (remember when you had to use Theo Riddick in PPR from time to time…and Theo Riddick sucked, as a talent, but he got touches and was FF-viable in PPR). Swift can be a poor man’s Alvin Kamara for the Lions right away. I’m buying that sentiment more and more.

Fortunately, the computer mocked Lamb-Jeudy picked already to allow Cam Akers to fall here. I’m not a Cam Akers guy at all, but I know there is a lot of love for him…so, I will DEFINITELY take him here and then DEFINITELY trade him tight after the draft. If I owned Darrell Henderson, and I do a bunch, I could see keeping Akers to have two bets on the Rams’ RB situation. Either way, I’m taking Akers here.

If I had a pressing need at QB, I would consider taking Joe Burrow here -- but I’d rather trade 1.07 and fall to 1.12 range to do that, or take and then trade Akers for like the 1.12 + ___. By grade, I should take Burrow here, for me and my system, but I am taking Akers on valuation because I know I can flip him for the Burrow pick and then some, right away.

Maybe Burrow falls to me at #19 (doubtful), but if not -- I take my normal Bryan Edwards pick…but we’re getting to the point that Edwards may be gone by the time I pick again. Let’s see…

 

1.1 C. Edwards-Helaire

1.2 J.K. Dobbins

1.3 D'Andre Swift

1.4 CeeDee Lamb

1.5 Jonathan Taylor

1.6 Jerry Jeudy

1.7 Cam Akers

1.8 Jalen Reagor

1.9 Ke'Shawn Vaughn

1.10 Henry Ruggs III

1.11 Justin Jefferson

1.12 Denzel Mims

 

 

2nd-Round (pick 2.07)

They made it easy on me…Bryan Edwards is there, and so is A.J. Dillon. You pick your poison between these two.

If your team is…

Weak at WR and solid at RB = Edwards

Weak at RB and solid at WR = Dillon

League is RB bloodthirsty always = Dillon

Own Aaron Jones = Dillon

PPR = coin flip decision

Non-PPR = Dillon

 

My teams tend to be stacked with young WRs, so I’m going to mix it up here and go with a/the RB whenever I’m in a coinflip situation. I’ll take A.J. Dillon. I don’t think AJD is going to be at most #19 picks as an option, he’s usually gone by now…but we’re here, and he’s available, so…

Now, we’ll see if another small miracle happens and Joshua Kelley falls to my #33…which has no real likelihood of happening, but we’ll see…

 

2.1 Tee Higgins

2.2 M. Pittman

2.3 L. Shenault

2.4 Joe Burrow

2.5 Zack Moss

2.6 Tua Tagovailoa

2.7 A.J. Dillon

2.8 Brandon Aiyuk

2.9 Bryan Edwards

2.10 Jalen Hurts

2.11 Cole Kmet

2.12 Antonio Gibson

 

 

3rd-Round (pick 3.07)

Dang it! Just missed. One pick before me Kelley was taken.

Jalen Hurts went way early, so I can’t go there.

But, my guy, Devin Duvernay is here…so, I’ll definitely take that consolation prize. I think he could be the best FF WR in this draft, but he’s in a very bad place to put up the FF numbers he could/should.

Time to settle into our typical 4th and 5th-round picks…BUT…I’ve been taking Joe Reed (4th) and Colby Parkinson (5th) every mock, you know that’s what I do…but let’s say that I purposefully didn’t take them…who would I then pick under those circumstances?

 

3.1 Chase Claypool

3.2 Justin Herbert

3.3 Darrynton Evans

3.4 Adam Trautman

3.5 A. McFarland

3.6 Joshua Kelley

3.7 Devin Duvernay

3.8 KJ Hamler

3.9 A. Gandy-Golden

3.10 Van Jefferson

3.11 Jordan Love

3.12 Lynn Bowden Jr.

 

4th-Round (pick 4.07)

I debated taking Albert Okwuegbunam, but I know he’ll be given away in deals all season (if I wanted/waited)—with him behind Fant and working with Lock, he’ll get forgotten quickly. But if he could get to the starting role somehow (Fant hurt), he does have history back to Mizzou with Lock. My other option is to reach for Darnell Mooney, whom I have grown in appreciation for…just not in love with him on the Bears.

I can always find WRs all year, but higher-end TEs are harder to come by and if Fant tore an ACL, Albert O. could be a thing – so, I’ll take Albert O.

 

4.1 Lamical Perine

4.2 Jacob Eason

4.3 Eno Benjamin

4.4 Tyler Johnson

4.5 Quintez Cephus

4.6 D. Peoples-Jones

4.7 Albert Okwuegbunam

4.8 Gabriel Davis

4.9 Devin Asiasi

4.10 DeeJay Dallas

4.11 Thaddeus Moss

4.12 Jason Huntley

 

 

 

5th-Round (pick 5.07)

Joe Reed and Colby Parkinson both still out there, but we’re purposefully ignoring that.

I’m looking at Michael Warren to be a longshot at the power back in the PHI RBBC trio or Salvon Ahmed to have a longshot chance if Raheem Mostert is traded or James Robinson as a shot at the Leonard Fournette handcuff. They’re all real Hail Mary longshots, so I’ll go with James Robinson as the closest to getting lucky/workload if the starter falls and because I own A LOT of Fournette stock.

I’m not sure Robinson makes the team, but I’m impressed with his savvy/tough interior running ability…he’s like a poor man’s/slower Zeke Elliott.

 

5.1 Darnell Mooney

5.2 Dalton Keene

5.3 Isaiah Hodgins

5.4 James Proche

5.5 Jake Fromm

5.6 Quez Watkins

5.7 James Robinson

5.8 Harrison Bryant

5.9 Isaiah Coulter

5.10 Joe Reed

5.11 Collin Johnson

5.12 John Hightower
