2022 Mock Five Round Dynasty Rookie Draft (from the #4 spot)

Air Date:
May 22, 2022

2022 Mock Five Round Dynasty Rookie Draft (from the #4 spot)


Just to get a few practice sessions in/looks in for May 2022 DRD concepts. 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 1.02 to 1.12 to fade back to the #16-20 range and get a ____ for my fallback trouble, or that concept within an even bigger deal. My 1st + a player for their 2nd and a bigger player. I don’t want to pick in the first round, if I can help it…but in case you have to, here’s some ways I’ll go about it and you can decide your own plans or adopt some of my advice…

Starting at 1.12 and going backwards to 1.01, since most FFMers finished #1-2-3 range last season. ;)



1.1 Breece Hall

1.2 Treylon Burks

1.3 Ken Walker III

1.4 Jameson Williams = I had a choice between Jameson and Drake London. I went Jameson, but I don’t blame anyone for going with London, if you prefer.

Otherwise…I’m just not an OSU WR duo guy, don’t want either…nor am I interested in Burks up this high.

If you have Rashaad Penny and want to add Kenneth Walker here, if available, then I get that. I’m taking Jameson because I think he could hit the league like Justin Jefferson, when he’s healthy and playing…which might be 4-8 weeks into the 2022 season.

1.5 Garrett Wilson

1.6 Drake London

1.7 Chris Olave

1.8 Christian Watson

1.9 Jahan Dotson

1.10 Skyy Moore

1.11 Rachaad White

1.12 James Cook


2.1 George Pickens

2.2 Isaiah Spiller

2.3 Kenny Pickett

2.4 Tyler Allgeier = I’m not restricting myself in this mock (like I did the last one, just to mix things up). I’m sticking by my usual Tyler Allgeier pick, even up this high.

None of the 2nd-round WRs interests me all that much and any 2nd-round RBs are equal to (situationally) or lesser talented in my book.

2.5 Alec Pierce

2.6 David Bell

2.7 Dameon Pierce

2.8 Malik Willis

2.9 Trey McBride

2.10 Zamir White

2.11 Brian Robinson Jr.

2.12 John Metchie III


3.1 Wan'Dale Robinson

3.2 Justyn Ross

3.3 Jalen Tolbert

3.4 Jelani Woods = My always 3rd-round or late 2nd-round (preferred) pick. It’s Allgeier + Woods then whatever else happens, happens, in my DRDs.

3.5 Tyquan Thornton

3.6 Tyrion Davis-Price

3.7 Khalil Shakir

3.8 Desmond Ridder

3.9 Matt Corral

3.10 Greg Dulcich

3.11 Danny Gray

3.12 Velus Jones Jr. (starting to get a buzz/moving up the DRD ADPs)


4.1 Romeo Doubs

4.2 Sam Howell

4.3 Keaontay Ingram

4.4 Isaih Pacheco = My favorite sleeper RB pick of the 2022 DRD. But (if you can take existing players) if Allen Lazard is out there, I can wait another round for Pacheco while I take Lazard here. Or if QB depth is a need, Marcus Mariota an option to consider.

4.5 Calvin Austin III

4.6 Pierre Strong Jr.

4.7 Jerome Ford

4.8 Jeremy Ruckert

4.9 Cade Otton

4.10 Kyren Williams

4.11 Hassan Haskins

4.12 Cole Turner


5.1 Tyler Badie

5.2 Jalen Wydermyer

5.3 Ty Chandler

5.4 Kyle Philips = My trusty 5th-round pick for most of these mock drafts. I think Philips is better than half the top 15 overall picked WRs, talent-wise, so nice value here. Whether he gets buried for too long to start his career is the question.

If you’d rather take existing NFL players, instead waiting/hoping in a rookie…feel free here.

5.5 Chigoziem Okonkwo

5.6 Daniel Bellinger

5.7 Kevin Harris

5.8 Isaiah Likely

5.9 Charlie Kolar

5.10 James Mitchell

5.11 Tyler Goodson

5.12 Snoop Conner
