IDP Rookie Mock Draft: Rounds 4-6

Yesterday we shared rounds 1-3 with you, today we’ll close out this mock draft with rounds 4-6.

Round 4

4.1 @nateclever8 Malik McDowell, DL:

Can line up anywhere on DL and can get to QB. Love the kid hope he continues to learn and grow his game

4.2 @DFF_Cog  Zay Jones, WR:

I realize the value here is stupendous. I cannot believe this is my reward for waiting this long to take a WR. Is he going to be an annual top 10 WR? Likely not but he should produce healthy WR2 numbers. The dude is a grinder and if I could I would do a backflip I would after getting him at 4.02.

4.3 @Kered_Eel‏ Malachi Dupre, WR:

Another value pick. Production lacking in college, but banking on that being a byproduct of LSU terrible QBs.

4.4 @fizboom Jeremy McNichols, RB:

Of MicNichols @pacificscouting had this to say in October 2016, “McNichols is another back on the rise in this loaded class. He has some of the best footwork I have seen from all of the draft-eligible backs. He’s very light on his toes and glides in and out of defenders while still being a very tough guy to bring down.”

4.5 @SlizzDigital Jarrad Davis, LB:

Fast and powerful. Diagnoses plays quickly and has a knack for getting to the ball carrier. Also, once reaching the ball carrier he brings a hammer with him. If he can stay healthy at the next level, he could be a tackling machine.

4.6 @Jonzey37 Deshaun Watson, QB:

Nothing says winner like leading your team to consecutive National Title appearances and taking down big, bad ‘Bama. I think Watson is the next dual-threat QB with a real shot to work out and the one who has the best chance to start early.

4.07 @fulst_rosto Kendall Beckwith, LB:

LSUs 3 year starting MLB is an athletic playmaker who is always around the ball, just look at his career high 16 tackles vs. Bama in ’16. At 6’2″ and 255 pounds the Tigers senior has ideal size sought in prospects, his game reading, however, will need more coaching if he is to become a three down backer in the pros.

4.08 @Josh444444 Anthony Walker, LB:

Very instinctive ILB that should rack up tackles on 1st 2nd down.

4.09 @NFL_drafthub Chad Hansen, WR:

Hansen may just be the most underrated wide receiver in the draft, a great route runner with solid top end speed, Hansen could end up being the steal of the draft.

4.10 @FatAdamSchefter Josh Reynolds, WR:

Maybe the best ball tracker in the draft. Had a great Senior Bowl game and practice. I can see him being severely underrated in fantasy rookie drafts. So, grab him late and reap the TDs. 

4.11 @HRoman1234 Marlon Mack, RB:

@_codygarrett Profiled Mack when he was still just a devy twinkle in your eye.

4.12  @DFF_JohnIDP Patrick Mahomes, QB:  

Texas Tech: franchise QB time. Watson is my top QB but, Mahomes is close for me. Grabbing a potential gem and QB seems like a good bet this late in the draft

Round 5

5.1 @nateclever8 DeShone Kizer, QB:

Taking the most upside available at the position in this draft. Will he be the best of the group in 10 years? To me he has all the tools but he must learn and grow. Raw, raw talent.

5.2 @DFF_Cog Derek Barnett, DE:

This is a steal and half for player I deem pro ready. I am not saying he is going to have 10-12 sacks as a rookie. Yet he has to run stuffing ability to create a safe floor for himself.

5.3 @Kered_Eel‏ Jalen Reeves-Maybin, LB:

Checkered injury history, but he eats when he’s on the field. A little on the small side, but athletic and quick to the ball.  

5.4 @fizboom Mitchell Trubisky, QB:

Potentially 1st QB off the board.

5.5 @SlizzDigital DeDe Westbrook, WR:

Was shocked he was still on the board in the 5th here. He has some off the field issues and supposedly he did not interview very well at the combine. That being said, his tape shows a natural WR who has the tendency to find the end zone (17 Tds in 2016). Happy to land the Biletnikoff Award winner, this is a steal.

5.6 @Jonzey37  Vidaunte “Taco” Charlton:

Michigan: A lot of talent but pretty raw is what you’ll hear about Taco. Hopefully, he gets drafted by a team that has a good lineman he can play next to and a good DC or line coach who helps him make the big jump to the pros. His athleticism is great for his size.

5.7 @fulst_rosto Charles Harris, DE:

Whether in a 4-3 or 3-4 Harris adaptability will be key to him staying on the field on all 3 downs. 1st round potential possessing great speed and burst off the edge. Will need to add to his patent spin move to trouble OTs in the pros. I have taken him earlier in other mocks but after his poor showing in the combine (with a candidate for the Guinness book of records shortest legged spider graph) his value will settle in the 5th/6th rds of rookie drafts.

5.8 @Josh444444 Isaiah Ford, WR:

I like the way he can high point a ball. Good body control and solid hands. Not going to run by many people but will be a solid possession WR that should put up solid numbers in PPR leagues.

5.9 @NFL_drafthub Demarcus Walker, EDGE:

Another severely underrated prospect here, Walker has the type of athleticism teams drool over. Strong enough to hold his own, Walker is a safe bet with high upside.

5.10 @FatAdamSchefter James Conner, RB:

Ben Boulware said that Conner broke his face mask and he was the hardest running back to tackle in his opinion…Not to mention he beat the crap out of cancer. Might be one of the steals at RB this year if he drops this late in normal drafts.

5.11 @HRoman1234 TJ Watt, LB:

5.12 @DFF_JohnIDP Keion Adams, LB:

Landing spot will be key. Good range and vision along with solid tackling make him a nice late round target.

Round 6

6.1 @nateclever8 Tim Williams, EDGE:

Off the field issues will hurt this kid a lot but if he can get straightened out he will be a good run stopper and solid tackler for a team.

6.2 @DFF_Cog  Amara Darboh, WR:

How does 6’2” 215 pound WR who ran a 4.45 40 last this long? I know he is not a superstar but he could be very solid in the right situation. He had him in the mid-2nd to early 3rd round range so yeah pretty stoked to find this kind of value in round six. If I did my math right he is the 19th WR off the board. #WOWZA

6.3 @Kered_Eel Bucky Hodges, TE.:

Just keep the TE tag please! He could be an absolute steal as a move TE but good chance he gets moved to WR.

6.4 @fizboom Takkarist McKinley, DE 

6.5 @SlizzDigital Duke Riley, LB:

Small for an NFL LB (Combine measurements: 6’ 230 pounds) He didn’t start at LSU until this season due to the fact he was behind a few future NFL standouts. This season he led LSU with 93 tackles (9 TFL). I am willing to take a chance on a guy like this late in the draft after seeing the success of Deion Jones who only started 1 season at LSU as well.

6.6 @Jonzey37 Montravius Adams, DT:

My consolation prize for waiting too long to get Tak. I think Adams can be an impact guy depending on the system he’s in solid late round pick in DT-required leagues.

6.7 @fulst_rosto Davis Webb, QB:

The Golden Bears senior QB has great arm strength with good accuracy when able to set, he has raw talent but due to being a system QB may have similar issues to his predecessor at Cal, J.Goff. Webb has been working with Jim Zorn on his mechanics and is worth a late Rd stash in a likely developmental role.

6.8 @Josh444444 Jamaal Williams, RB:

Great value here. Is a patient runner who was very productive in college. Has the upside to be a three down RB in the NFL.

6.9 @NFL_drafthub Wayne Gallman, RB:

Gallman is a second round talent and a top 7 running back if you’re asking me. With great size and quickness, Gallman should be able to carve out a nice niche somewhere. Value pick here.

6.10 @FatAdamSchefter Connor Harris, LB:

Read my profile

6.11 @HRoman1234 Robert Davis, WR:

My dark horse.

6.12 @DFF_JohnIDP Ryan Switzer, WR:

Just like LBs, you can never have enough WRs kids got return skills and that’s a bonus for return yardage leagues. Love him in the short area of the field. I like the slot WRs who can win on matchups. I’ll take a shot here.

I love the depth in this draft. I’m working hard to acquire more draft picks this year. Those 2nd, 3rd and even 4th round picks are guaranteeing that you end up with some good players. Happy hunting everyone.

@DFF_JohnIDP is where I am easiest to locate if you’d like to go over this draft.


I enjoy football year round. I have 4 boys who keep me on the run. My wife likes to keep me busy as well! I play in many different styles of Dynasty football. My passion is IDP. In my spare time I enjoy scouting the next group of IDP's
