I took a group of high quality dynasty fantasy football minds and had them join me in a “way too early” 2019 dynasty rookie mock draft. Using standard scoring, here are the results of round one!
1.01 – N’KEAL HARRY, WR ARIZONA STATE
The Arizona State WR is the top pick in this Mock Draft, and for good reason. At 6’4” and 225 lbs, Harry has the size and athleticism to be a WR1 from the onset of his NFL career. Additionally, N’Keal brings massive production from his days in Tempe, turning in 3000 scrimmage yards and 25 TDs in his three years of college ball.
1.02 – DAVID MONTGOMERY, RB IOWA STATE
Montgomery is the slight favorite to be the rookie RB1 of 2018 dynasty drafts, and that’s where he gets selected here. With great feet, vision, and power, Montgomery could be an immediate contributor to an NFL team as well as fantasy lineups.
1.03 – DAMIEN HARRIS, RB ALABAMA
Harris was one of the most productive backs in the SEC for three season, eclipsing 1000 yards in each year at Alabama. Alex, the owner of the 1.03 pick remarked “RBs are more reliable than WRs, and Damien Harris is definitely a guy who will have a significant role in the NFL” after making the pick.
1.04 – D.K. METCALF, WR MISSISSIPPI
“Too much of a physical freak to pass up at number 1.04” according to the man behind this pick. Metcalf is likely to be this year’s version of film vs metrics (Stephen Hill anyone?) . However, Metcalf battled multiple injuries thus missing time and competed against AJ Brown for targets, so this pick could easily be a great selection.
1.05 – KELVIN HARMON, WR NORTH CAROLINA STATE
Brent made this pick and considers Harmon a “Super well rounded WR, maybe the most complete WR in the class”. Yet another wideout going in the top five in 2019 creates a complete juxtaposition to the 2018 rookie class, which was all RBs in the top 6-8 picks of many rookie drafts.
1.06 – JOSH JACOBS, RB ALABAMA
I got to pick at 1.06 and I chose the player who many consider the top running back in the class. Jacobs could easily end up as pick 1.01 after the NFL Draft, depending on his landing spot. Regardless of where you stand on his future, it seems unlikely he will fall this far when the “real” drafts begin.
1.07 – DARRELL HENDERSON, RB MEMPHIS
Henderson, who progressed nicely after joining Memphis as a low-level recruit a few years ago, had a massive Junior year rushing (214/1909/22) and receiving (19/295/3). The 10th place finisher in the Heisman voting could be a three down back in the right organization.
1.08 – A.J. BROWN, WR MISSISSIPPI
A value pick here, Brown seems to be falling down draftboards, which really doesn’t make sense. The guy had “Back-to-back great seasons and he’s…. thiiiiick” according to his new owner. Brown could be an immediate impact player in the NFL and in Dynasty lineups.
1.09 – HAKEEM BUTLER, WR IOWA STATE
Butler is a giant at 6’6”, 225 lbs who has put up excellent numbers for ISU each of the past two season. In a league where plenty of defenses play bend don’t break schemes, Butler could be the redzone threat who can score those tough TDs close to the goaline.
1.10 – MARQUISE BROWN, WR OKLAHOMA
Where Butler is a giant, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown would have to be an elf. At 5’10”, 168 lbs, Brown used blazing speed and quickness to get the job done at Oklahoma. This pick is risky since Brown’s value is all over the board right now, but if a smart coaching staff puts Hollywood’s skills to good use, he could be in line for a Tyreek Hill type of role.
1.11 – DWAYNE HASKINS, QB OHIO STATE
Haskins is the top 2019 QB selected here, in what looks like the weakest quarterback class in years. Don’t let that scare you though, Haskins has all the skills necessary to become a stud for years. Alex, the man who made this pick, commented that Haskins “should thrive in today’s offenses and is ready to start right away”.
1.12 – RODNEY ANDERSON, RB OKLAHOMA
Anderson could be a top five pick come August, as injuries are the only thing keeping the Oklahoma running back out of the early first round of dynasty rookie drafts. Andy, the man with the selection, explained that this pick could be “risky since there’s only one year of stats”, but a non-eventful offseason, strong combine, and a clean bill of health will have dynasty owners swarming around Anderson.
Look for round two coming soon!
