2022 Mock Five Round Dynasty Rookie Draft (from the #6 spot)

Air Date:
May 20, 2022

2022 Mock Five Round Dynasty Rookie Draft (from the #6 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 Drake London

1.3 Jameson Williams

1.4 Garrett Wilson

1.5 Treylon Burks

1.6 Ken Walker III = In lieu of trading this pick to fall back to #16-18 range overall, I make the pick with the intention of selling off the player after/this summer. To me, right now, I feel like Kenneth Walker has the most heat to trade of any of these typical #5-15 rookie options.

I don’t want to possess an RB who might not be the best RB on his roster. If I already own Rashaad Penny, I can consider keeping the two and being secure…but I’d really rather sell the sizzle than buy the steak. People LOVE rookie RBs.

Next mock, from the #5 spot…I may be presented with the choice of taking a player like Walker to trade…or having the one top rookie WRs that I would consider keeping for the long-term (Jameson Williams). I will have that option in many of the mocks coming from slots #2-5…but will I take a player to keep, or take a name to trade?

We’ll see coming up…

1.7 Chris Olave

1.8 Skyy Moore

1.9 Christian Watson

1.10 George Pickens

1.11 Jahan Dotson

1.12 James Cook


2.1 Kenny Pickett

2.2 Isaiah Spiller

2.3 Rachaad White

2.4 Trey McBride

2.5 David Bell

2.6 Tyler Allgeier = It’s getting to be typical/old news with my pick here…but it is what it is. I will keep making this pick because in reality, I am making this pick most every real situation draft with clients, etc. Pretty soon we’ll be into the early 2nd-round mocks (from slots 1-5) with more interesting options to possibly consider. Will I stick with taking Allgeier at 2.1-2-3 range? We’ll see…

2.7 Alec Pierce

2.8 John Metchie III

2.9 Dameon Pierce

2.10 Wan'Dale Robinson

2.11 Matt Corral

2.12 Jalen Tolbert


3.1 Zamir White

3.2 Malik Willis

3.3 Brian Robinson Jr.

3.4 Desmond Ridder

3.5 Tyrion Davis-Price

3.6 Jelani Woods = Ditto the message I put in Allgeier’s comment section above…I keep making this pick in reality. The only thing with Jelani to debate is…would taking an Allen Lazard be a better 2022 move, then trade for Woods later? I don’t wanna miss out on Woods…but I want to get Lazard as well.

Most situations, I maneuver to have two picks in the 2nd-round and then pop Allgeier-Woods. I get nervous waiting until the 3rd-round to hope Woods is there.

3.7 Velus Jones Jr. (the more I look at how awful the Bears’ WR depth chart is, the more Velus is making me take a 2nd-look on him in general…but I just was not that impressed with him, compared to the hype, at the Senior Bowl)

3.8 Khalil Shakir

3.9 Tyquan Thornton

3.10 Sam Howell

3.11 Pierre Strong Jr. (Moving up ADPs on ‘next James White’ rumors)

3.12 Greg Dulcich


4.1 Calvin Austin III

4.2 Tyler Badie

4.3 Hassan Haskins

4.4 Kyren Williams

4.5 Danny Gray

4.6 Isaih Pacheco = My new 4th-round grab scenario…Pacheco then Phillips has been working well in that order, but you could reverse it if desired.

Non-rookie options are legit to take instead here.

4.7 Keaontay Ingram

4.8 Jeremy Ruckert

4.9 Romeo Doubs

4.10 Justyn Ross

4.11 Cade Otton

4.12 Abram Smith


5.1 Jerome Ford

5.2 Carson Strong

5.3 Samori Toure

5.4 Ty Chandler

5.5 Daniel Bellinger (starting to generate a little buzz)

5.6 Kyle Phillips = Wrapping it up as we always do. Again, existing/non-rookie NFL players that we’ve noted during this series are fine to take here as they work for you/fit with your roster.

5.7 Snoop Conner

5.8 Isaiah Likely

5.9 Charlie Kolar

5.10 Jalen Wydermyer

5.11 Bailey Zappe

5.12 ZaQuandre White
