Dynasty leagues all over are wrapping up their regular season with many of the playoffs already underway. This is the time where owners begin to look at the draft and how they can continue to build, or rebuild, their team. Some owners will be looking to see what type of haul their current draft picks will bring them while others will look to acquire picks. Regardless of which you fall under, it is important to have an idea of what players your picks will lead to. This two-round mock draft will look to give owners insight as to how the 2019 rookie draft will play out.
1.01- N’Keal Harry, WR Arizona St
N’Keal Harry enters the draft as one of the more physically impressive wideouts in the class. Harry is a towering 6’4” and 220lbs while still possessing some fantastic athleticism. Harry shows off some very strong hands plucking the ball out of the air and routinely makes highlight-reel catches. Even more impressive is his ability to make plays with the ball in his hands. Harry does an excellent job making defenders miss and is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. Harry should provide a spark to whatever team drafts him and will be a dynamic wideout at the next level.
1.02- David Montgomery, RB Iowa St
While highly rated, David Montgomery may still be one of the more underrated and underappreciated backs in the country. With a very poor offensive line, Montgomery was still able to put up over 1,000 yards rushing and double-digit TDs the last two seasons by making defenders miss at a record rate. In 2017, Montgomery forced 109 missed tackles, a PFF record, as well as one of the highest elusive ratings. He does this with a combination of excellent strength and agility while also possessing the speed to break off big runs. Montgomery will inevitably have a better offensive line in the NFL and should be a top end RB for years to come.
1.03- DK Metcalf, WR Ole Miss
DK Metcalf, quite simply, is a physical freak of nature. Metcalf is 6’4” and a muscled-up 230lbs but still possesses freakish athleticism. This gives him the ability to be a playmaker with and without the ball in his hands. Metcalf does an excellent job of beating press coverage and has the speed to separate from the defense quickly. He also does a great job beating defensive backs on jump balls making him a preferred, and dangerous, red zone target. Metcalf got hurt to end his season but if he can live up to his potential, he could be one of the best WRs in the NFL.
1.04- Bryan Edwards, WR South Carolina
If think you’re seeing a trend here, you are absolutely correct; Bryan Edwards is another physically imposing WR coming into the draft. Standing at 6’3” tall and 220lbs full of muscle and athleticism, Edwards burst onto the scene early hitting his breakout age during his true freshman season at only 18 years old. He is extremely explosive, firing off the line of scrimmage, and getting upfield in a hurry. Edwards best trait is his ability to track the ball in the air and routinely making circus-like catches. With his top-end athleticism and pass catching ability, Edwards has the chance to be a dominant WR1 at the next level.
1.05- Kelvin Harmon, WR NC State
I would love to say this will be the last monster WR on the list, but that would be a lie. Kelvin Harmon, or “Baby Julio” as he is aptly nicknamed, is a towering 6’3” tall and 215lbs. Harmon is extremely athletic and does a great job tracking the ball in the air showing off excellent body adjustments to the ball. He also does a great job beating press coverage and getting separation in his route running. Harmon is another big wideout with the potential of being a WR1 at the next level.
1.06- Rodney Anderson, RB Oklahoma
Coming into the season, Rodney Anderson would have been ranked higher but injury concerns will push him down a bit in drafts. Although he has battled injuries the past few years, Anderson is still an extremely talented running back with tons of versatility. Standing at 6’1”, 220lbs he possesses some next level athleticism and explosion. Anderson also has the strength to shed tackles and the speed to pull away from defenders. He also has great vision and balance making him one of the more complete backs in the draft. If Anderson can stay healthy, he has the potential to be one of the top RBs in the NFL.
1.07- Damien Harris, RB Alabama
Even as a bigger back (5’11”, 215lbs), Damien Harris is one of the more explosive backs in this draft class with the ability to get up to top speed quickly and enough wiggle to make defenders miss. He is also a very smooth runner, using excellent vision to weave through the defense. Harris does a great job using his strength to shed tacklers and adds in quality pass catching ability making him a very well rounded back. Harris should be one of the top running backs drafted and is capable of being an every down back at the next level.
1.08- Tyler Johnson, WR Minnesota
Tyler Johnson will be one of the lesser known players on this list but is every bit as talented as any WR in the country. Johnson has good size at 6’2” 200lbs and is one of the best route runners in the country. He does an excellent job of winning early in his routes and has a great feel for the soft spots in the defense. Johnson is versatile with the ability to line up anywhere on the field. His production shot up this season as he posted over 1,000 yards and double-digit TDs. It is too early to tell where Johnson will land in the draft, but he will certainly be a very productive player at the next level.
1.09- Elijah Holyfield, RB Georgia
Coming into the season it was tough to envision Elijah Holyfield rising up this high with such a crowded backfield at Georgia. But over the course of the season, Holyfield has proven to be one of the more talented backs in the country. He is another physically impressive running back at 5’11” and a muscled-up 215lbs. He uses his size to perfection as he doesn’t shy away from contact and has the ability to run over defenders. He is also a very quick and sudden back allowing him to hit open running lanes and make defenders miss. Holyfield has some of the largest upside in the class and should provide a huge spark to the team that drafts him.
1.10- Deebo Samuel, WR South Carolina
Deebo Samuel looked great in his return from injury this season putting up double-digit touchdowns. Even though Samuel is a big and tall WR, he more than makes up for it with his route running and shiftiness. He does an excellent job setting up defenders and using his quickness to get open. Samuel does a great job getting in and out of his break with little wasted movement and also has great hands to go with it. Assuming Samuel can stay healthy, he will be an excellent and reliable pass catcher in the NFL.
1.11- AJ Brown, WR Ole Miss
AJ Brown is one of the tougher WR evaluations in this draft. Brown was extremely productive, putting up over 1,000 yards in 2 straight seasons, but doing it mostly out of the slot. But Brown is an excellent route runner doing a great job stacking defenders and gets out of his breaks quickly with little wasted movement. He is also a very sure handed WR that does a great job catching the ball away from his body minimizing drops. Brown is the type of WR, that if placed in the right system, could be one of the more productive players in the NFL.
1.12- Emanuel Hall, WR Missouri
This may be a shocking selection, but trust me, Emanuel Hall is one of the more talented wideouts in this draft class. Even at 6’3” 195lbs, Hall is still extremely explosive and can burst upfield very quickly. He is very sudden in his route running, cutting on a dime, with no wasted movement. Hall does have the occasional concentration drops, something he will need to work on, but has the ability to be a productive and game-changing type of wide receiver at the next level.
2.01- Marquise Brown, WR Oklahoma
2.02-Hakeem Butler, WR Iowa St
2.03- Noah Fant, TE Iowa
2.04- Miles Sanders, RB Penn St
2.05- Darrell Henderson, RB Memphis
2.06- Riley Ridley, WR Georgia
2.07- Josh Jacobs, RB Alabama
2.08- Collin Johnson, WR Texas
2.09- JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR Stanford
2.10- Myles Gaskin, RB Washington
2.11- Bryce Love, RB Stanford
2.12- Justin Herbert, QB Oregon
Sleeper to keep an eye on: Scottie Phillips, RB Ole Miss
