2023 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

The iconic Ash Ketchum from the town of Pallet would famously shout towards the heavens, “I choose you!” before summoning his trusted magical companions to engage in battle. 

While most of us dynasty managers are not currently striving for eternal Pokémon Mastery like Ketchum, we too are about to embark on a quest during which we must declare which companions we will choose to join us in battle for the 2023 fantasy football season. 

I’m of course talking about 2023 rookie drafts. 

The NFL Combine and the majority of the college pro days are behind us. These 2023 prospects have been poked and prodded like cattle for the past month. We in the dynasty community have analyzed and over-analyzed to the point where I think everyone is just ready to draft their rookies already. 

While the real life NFL Draft remains in the future, I believe a lot of the picture is beginning to come into focus as far as the hierarchy on some of these prospects, especially towards the top of the draft. 

Below is my 2023 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft, which is actually probably more of a rankings list that I number off by twelve to make it seem like a mock! Either way, I’ve added tiers to these rankings because I think landing spots and, ultimately, draft capital, will shape our final rankings much more than people want to admit at this time of year. Tiers also help us better conceptualize the talent in this class and have a better understanding of where the larger drops in talent might sit. 

Here we go! Gotta draft ‘em all!

Tier 1 – “Bijan”

The 1.01 in all formats.

1.01 – RB1 Bijan Robinson [Texas] 

Reminds me of: Store Brand Saquon Barkley 
Favorite Landing Spot: Cincinnati Bengals

The mental image of Bijan Robinson lined up behind Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in a primetime game under the lights wearing those “White Tiger” color rush kits… my pants are suddenly feeling very snug. That landing spot would be a Madden franchise player’s wet dream. Let’s be real though, any situation would be ripe for Bijan, who would immediately lead virtually any backfield in the league. He’s the 1.01 in my 2023 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft, and right now he is everyone’s 1.01 in all dynasty formats. QB-neediness in Superflex is a valid reason to consider passing on a running back at 1.01, but at the end of the day, Robinson’s current dynasty value is probably so high that it makes more sense to still draft him at 1.01 and worry about it later. 

Tier 2 – “The QB Trio”

In Superflex, the top quarterbacks usually rise all the way to the top. This year, Bijan stands alone (for now), but the top three signal-callers are all in a tier of their own just below him. 

1.02 – QB2 C.J. Stroud [Ohio State]

Reminds me of: Somewhere between noon-kickoff Kirko Chainz and Kirk Cousins playing in prime time. 
Favorite Landing Spot: Carolina Panthers 

Sometimes it feels like Stroud gets propped up simply because he’s not small like Young, and he’s more polished than Anthony Richardson as a passer. So many managers are gravitating towards Stroud due to the absence of the most glaring weaknesses of the other quarterbacks but without being able to tell anyone why they actually like his game. Stroud is that middle-ground between the other two passers, and because of that, it feels like his ceiling is the lowest among all of these quarterbacks, although his floor might be the highest. In most Superflex formats, however, there’s something to be said for safety and stability at the quarterback position. 

1.03 – QB2 Bryce Young [Alabama]

Reminds me of: Mugsy Bogues or Danny DeVito 
Favorite Landing Spot: Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory … or the Houston Texans 

Young, who is rumored to still need a booster seat when he rides in a car, somehow overcame his literal shortcomings to win a Heisman Trophy playing in the SEC without the same level of elite talent around him that we are used to seeing at Alabama. Houston would be getting themselves a poised, accurate leader who should help turn their franchise around pending good health. It’s a shame though, even if Young manages to quarterback the Texans to a Super Bowl and wins that trip to Disney World, he won’t be allowed to ride any of the rides. 

1.04 – QB3 Anthony Richardson [Florida] 

Reminds me of: Cam Jackson or Lamar Newton
Favorite Landing Spot: Detroit Lions 

After the NFL Combine Richardson had, the temptation is to just shoot him all the way up to the very top of rookie drafts. I have 1.02 in several leagues, and I know I am going to have a tough decision to make because of AR’s athletic gifts. Once he steps onto the field, fantasy points will flow. His running ability will actually establish a high floor to his value. The only risk is that he is so raw as a passer at the NFL level, that his career as a starter might be short lived without major strides in development. So, while I’m still more than happy to take a chance on Richardson, I’m going to prioritize Young and Stroud first.

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown of Anthony Richardson.

Tier 3 – “Just JSN”

In my opinion, there is a distinct “Elite 5” in this class: Bijan, the top three QBs and Jaxon-Smith Njigba. In Superflex, I’m taking any of the top three QBs before JSN, but he’s a tier above the rest of the skill position players available, in my opinion, thus his own tier. 

1.05 – WR1 Jaxon Smith-Njigba [Ohio State] 

Reminds me of: A Keenan Allen-Calvin Ridley love child
Favorite Landing Spot: Seattle Seahawks

Seattle has drafted extremely well in recent years, and GM John Schneider is one of the best in the game. Taking JSN a year early before Tyler Lockett’s eventual departure would be an extremely smart move both for 2023 and beyond. Imagine those poor slot corners trying to contend with JSN all by themselves while DK Metcalf and Lockett command all the attention on the outside and deeper down the field. As a prospect, JSN is easily my WR1. Sixth overall might be a little rich for him, but the Seahawks also have pick No. 20 in the first round. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

Tier 4 – “The Almost Elites”

These three non-QBs are in a tier of their own just below the “Elite 5”, but I’m grabbing these three players over anyone from the tier below regardless of what happens in the NFL Draft (for the most part). 

1.06 – RB2 Jahmyr Gibbs [Alabama] 

Reminds me of: C.J. Spiller but good
Favorite Landing Spot: Seattle Seahawks 

Gibbs has the talent to be in that top tier, and I’ve seen him up there in many mock rookie drafts. I just think rushing volume might become an issue for Gibbs in fantasy. The speed and agility in space is apparent, but how often can an NFL play-caller put him in those situations? I would love Seattle to add both JSN and Gibbs to help their offense reach that top tier. Gibbs would team with Kenneth Walker to form a dynamic 1-2 punch in the backfield to go along with their firepower at receiver. Whether it’s Geno Smith or a young quarterback in the coming seasons, Seattle would be building an ideal situation offensively. 

1.07 – WR2 Jordan Addison [USC] 

Reminds me of: a not quite as Slim Reaper 
Favorite Landing Spot: Baltimore Ravens 

This dude made Kenny Pickett look like a superstar. He deserves WR2 status just for that. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Jordan Addison.

1.08 – WR3 Zay Flowers [Boston College]

Reminds me of: a healthy Kadarius Toney 
Favorite Landing Spot: Minnesota Vikings 

Don’t let his size fool you into thinking Flowers is a slot receiver because he’s not. Acceleration and sudden-ness are Flowers’ main tools, and the way he runs his routes with such speed and aggressiveness jumps out on tape. Not only that, but Flowers is dangerous after the catch as well. A hypothetical landing spot in Minnesota would be great for both Flowers and the Vikings who need a dangerous threat down the field and with the ball. This is one of the most currently underrated fantasy-relevant players in this class. I would not even be shocked if he is the first receiver off the board in the NFL Draft. 

Tier 5 – “The Big Ass Tier with Most of the Landing Spot/Draft Capital-Dependent RB’s

Most dynasty analysts have these players ranked in a distinct order right now, but landing spot/draft capital will cause the eventual order of the players in this tier to change a lot following the NFL Draft.

1.09 – WR4 Josh Downs [UNC] 

Reminds me of: 2023 version of Jahon Dotson 
Favorite Landing Spot: Not my favorite spot, but he’s 5-9… so probably the Giants.

Downs is an explosive slot receiver who can get vertical and also possesses very good contested catch ability for someone of his size. His short-area quickness is very noticeable as well, which makes him a player who can create separation in a variety of ways. What remains to be seen is if he can defeat press coverage consistently at the next level. Downs is someone who could easily be ranked at the very top of this tier if he lands in a good situation. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Josh Downs.

1.10 – WR5 Quentin Johnston [TCU]

Reminds me of: Alshon Jeffrey who transforms into someone with YAC ability after the catch
Favorite Landing Spot: New York Giants 

If Quentin Johnston gets drafted by Brian Daboll and company in the first round this year, Johnston could be considered a literal giant as well as a New York Giant amongst all the tiny slot receivers they’ve signed and re-signed this off-season. At 6-3, 210, Johnston is this year’s quintessential height/weight/speed marvel who is rising up to WR2 in many dynasty managers’ minds this draft season based mostly on his physique. To be fair, despite the questionable release skills and body-catch tendencies, Johnston is impressive after the catch, especially at his size. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Quentin Johnston.

1.11 – RB3 Zach Charbonnet [UCLA]

Reminds me of: AJ Dillon with a slower first gear but more elusive in space 
Favorite Landing Spot: Philadelphia Eagles

Aside from Bijan and Gibbs, there remains very little consensus in the dynasty community about who the RB3 is at this point. Charbonnet is my pick based on merit, and if he lands on the Eagles with a chance at three-down work early in his career, I think most will follow suit. Charbonnet runs pretty upright and takes a second to get going, but once he gains a head of steam, the speed is impressive at his size. He is also an asset in the passing game and a decent pass protector which offers valuable workhorse potential. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Zach Charbonnet.

1.12 – QB4 Will Levis [Kentucky] 

Reminds me of: Josh Allen if Jay Cutler had developed him instead of Brian Daboll
Favorite Landing Spot: Las Vegas Raiders

Everyone loves to hate on Will Levis, whether it’s for his flaws as a quarterback or for using mayonnaise in his morning coffee (link). Levis has seemingly tumbled to a tier below the other top quarterbacks in this class, but if he gets top ten draft capital and lands in a decent spot, he still warrants a first round selection in Superflex rookie drafts, and perhaps he should be in the previous tier if he gets drafted in the top ten of the NFL Draft. A Las Vegas landing spot would be beneficial to Levis in that he could sit behind Jimmy G for a year and learn Josh McDaniels’ system… before he’s inevitably fired after this season. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown of Will Levis.

2.01 – RB4 Sean Tucker [Syracuse]

Reminds me of: a Kyle Shanahan RB
Favorite Landing Spot: Miami Dolphins 

When you notice the things Tucker does well, it makes you really excited about him as a potential NFL stud. He has the burst, the low center of gravity and solid contact balance for someone of his size. His ability to make sharp, big-play-finding cuts on stretch plays just screams, “Shanahan RB.” Sometimes it is hard to tell on tape whether Tucker has the vision to create space on his own or if he will need to rely more on scheme and blocking to gain his yardage. He also has a ways to go as a blocker, which might ultimately drop him lower in the NFL Draft, which would likely drop him lower in rookie drafts. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown of Sean Tucker.

2.02 – TE1 Michael Mayer [Notre Dame] 

Reminds me of: Tyler Eifert without the walking boot… or neck brace… or cast. 
Favorite Landing Spot: Green Bay Packers 

Mayer had previously been one of the more hyped prospects in this 2023 class for a while. And the way he played in 2022 certainly did not suggest his stock should drop, but I have a hard time mocking him in the first round, mostly due to the depth at QB and RB this year. Mayer isn’t the most explosive athlete in the 2023 TE class, but he has the best all-around game, which should equal lots and lots of snaps for whatever team drafts him. If that team is Green Bay, I could see (presumably) Jordan Love peppering Mayer with targets all season. 

2.03 – QB5 Hendon Hooker [Tennessee]

Reminds me of: my grandfather
Favorite Landing Spot: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

I believe it was distinguished, former Rhode Island transportation expert Lloyd Christmas who once mused: “You know, it’s true what they say… old people, though slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose.” Those eloquent words are fitting when discussing Hendon Hooker, who finds himself in the same place where many elderly Americans enjoy their Golden Years: Tampa Bay, Florida. The Buccaneers had hoped to draft a young quarterback after the past few seasons with forty-something year old Tom Brady under center. Instead, they end up with Hooker. 

2.04 – TE2 Dalton Kincaid [Utah] 

Reminds me of: Dawson Knox 
Favorite Landing Spot: Detroit Lions 

The Utes entered into 2022 expecting their dynamic TE duo of Kincaid and Brant Kuithe to carry them in the passing game. Kuithe was lost for the season in September, but Kincaid more than stepped up in a featured role with 70 receptions for 890 yards and eight scores. Kincaid wasn’t asked to block very much, but there are examples on tape of him looking competent in the run game, but his niche in the NFL will be as someone who is split out wide as a receiver for the most part. Detroit would be a great spot for Kincaid whose ability to get down the field and win jump-ball opportunities in the red zone would earn him plenty of opportunities as defenses worry about Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams. 

2.05 – RB5 Devon Achane [Texas A&M]

Reminds me of: mini Chris Johnson
Favorite Landing Spot: Cleveland Browns

I’m hedging a bit with a guy like Achane being ranked over some of the other backs. If you draft Achane, you’re giving up the hope of getting a three-down workhorse. What you are getting — and what the Browns hypothetically could get in Round 3 of the NFL Draft — is an explosive, dynamic runner who can score on any given touch of the football. At 5-8 ½ and 188 pounds, Achane has less than prototypical workhorse size, although he showed very well as an inside runner in college. His pass blocking needs work, but what a complement Achane would be to Nick Chubb in the Browns’ backfield. 

2.06 – RB6 Tank Bigsby [Auburn]

Reminds me of: Josh Jacobs with a much, much cooler name 
Favorite Landing Spot: Dallas Cowboys

An underrated part of Bigsby’s game is his ability to process information quickly right at the snap. Watching his film, there are so many examples of Bigsby cleverly identifying holes just as or even right before they open. This comes down to not only understanding your own job on any given play, but also the jobs of your blockers and what the defenders are trying to do in terms of gaps and responsibilities. Bigsby looks great in this area, while many backs of his caliber struggle with this because they have always just relied upon physically dominating overmatched opponents in high school and even in college. If I thought Bigsby could offer more as a consistent third down threat in the NFL, I’d have him much higher on this list. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s in-depth scouting report/film breakdown on Tank Bigsby.

2.07 – RB7 Israel Abanikanda [Pitt]

Reminds me of: DeMarco Murray 
Favorite Landing Spot: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Abanikanda seems to get lost in the fold during all the discussion about how deep this 2023 RB class is, but the former Pitt Panther deserves to be ranked right there with the rest of the runners in this tier, in my opinion. While he doesn’t have the explosiveness of Gibbs or Achane, Abanikanda has the size/speed combo that translates well to the NFL. Abanikanda needs work as a third down asset, but I would not say he can’t improve there. Still, landing somewhere like Tampa where he could complement a more accomplished third down threat would be ideal. 

2.08 – RB8 Zach Evans [Ole Miss]

Reminds me of: a young Melvin Gordon 
Favorite Landing Spot: Minnesota Vikings

Evans is a former five-star recruit whose college path has been marred with mystery. He was seen as an elite-level prospect, but injuries and the fact that he twice was outshone by teammates at both TCU and Ole Miss has caused Evans to lose a bit of luster in many dynasty managers’ minds. People were also puzzled that he only weighed in at 202 pounds at the NFL Combine but did not run the 40 or do agility drills at that smaller size. I still believe in the talent despite the murkiness of his overall profile. If he gets Day 2 draft capital and lands in a spot like Minnesota where Dalvin Cook doesn’t look to factor into the Vikings’ long term plans, I’d be ready to consider Evans much higher than this in real life rookie drafts. 

2.09 – RB9 Tyjae Spears [Tulane] 

Reminds me of: Warrick Dunn
Favorite Landing Spot: Arizona Cardinals 

Spears is a tad undersized for a workhorse role, but he performed very well as Tulane’s every-down back in 2022, amassing 1,581 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground, with another 22 for 256 through the air. Spears really burst onto the draft scene with his Senior Bowl week performance. The change-of-direction skills to go along with decent balance and vision could make for a dynamic player in the right system. It will be interesting to see how he translates as a receiver in the NFL because at his size, he likely needs to be able to contribute on passing downs. 

2.10 – RB10 Kendre Miller [TCU] 

Reminds me of: Chris Carson 
Favorite Landing Spot: Los Angeles Chargers

Miller is someone I struggle to rank this low, but that is more due to how deep this RB class is as opposed to it being due to Miller’s flaws as a prospect. Miller is a well-rounded runner who has the size and physical profile that dynasty managers love. Landing in a situation like the Chargers would be great, where Miller could be tasked with getting what is blocked between the tackles in order to keep defenses honest as they worry about Justin Herbert and the passing game. He would be a great compliment to Austin Ekeler if he is still on the team in 2023. 

2.11 – WR6 Jalin Hyatt [Tennessee]

Reminds me of: Mike Wallace or Will Fuller before his career-ending finger injury
Favorite Landing Spots: Los Angeles Chargers

The reigning Biletnikoff Award winner brings a ton of deep speed to the table, something the Chargers could absolutely use. Hyatt is probably going to be a much better real life contributor in how he will clear out space than he will be a consistently dominant fantasy producer, thus the mid-to-late second round ranking. 

Check out Ben Perrin’s scouting report/film breakdown on Jalin Hyatt.

2.12 – RB11 Roschon Johnson [Texas] 

Reminds me of: Alfred Morris
Favorite Landing Spot: Dallas Cowboys 

If the Cowboys don’t get Bijan, they should take his backup at Texas, Johnson. Tony Pollard is dynamic but likely doesn’t have the physique to shoulder a prime-Ezekiel Elliott-like workload. Johnson could come in and be an “innings-eater” while Pollard handles the more impactful touches as a playmaker. 

3.01 – RB12 Chase Brown [Illinois] 

Reminds me of: Phillip Lindsay
Favorite Landing Spot: Any of the teams with an aging RB1

Brown is a great athlete with some home run ability who is constantly making the first tackler miss with a lateral side-step on film. Brown was impressive at the NFL Combine as well, helping his case with a 4.43 in the 40 as well as a 10’7” broad jump and 40” vertical. Some dynasty managers are using that performance at the combine to move Brown way up in their rankings. I like Brown’s athleticism, but I think his poor third-down profile and his limited instincts will keep him as a mid-round prospect. 

3.02 – WR7 Marvin Mims [Oklahoma]

Reminds me of: Darnell Mooney
Favorite Landing Spot: Atlanta Falcons

Mims is an explosive playmaker whose lack of size would be mitigated by landing somewhere like Atlanta where the likes of Kyle Pitts and Drake London could handle the big-boy roles in that offense. Mims is a very good blocker for his size, something that Arthur Smith would love. As a talent, Mims could be ranked much higher than this, but again, the depth of this class is pushing prospects like this down to the late-second, early third. 

3.03 – TE3 Luke Musgrave [Oregon State]

Reminds me of: a slightly longer, rawer Dalton Kincaid
Favorite Landing Spot: Cincinnati Bengals

Musgrave is a tier below both Mayer and Kincaid for me due to his relative lack of polish compared to those other guys. If he develops well, Musgrave could be a more dynamic pass-catching threat than Mayer, and likely will be a better asset as a blocker than Kincaid, so there is some upside here. Musgrave is your typical big, strong, fast tight end prospect who can get down field and make plays. In a spot like Cincy, Musgrave would not be relied upon to carry the load, and he would constantly find himself in favorable situations as defenses focus on the other playmakers around him. 

3.04 – WR8 Nathaniel “Tank” Dell [Houston]

Reminds me of: Dante Hall if he could’ve run routes
Favorite Landing Spot: Houston Texans

The Texans should keep this kid at home and provide Bryce Young with an electric talent who can take any given touch to the end zone from anywhere on the pitch. Dell is someone who combines elite deep speed with devastating elusiveness after the catch. His route-running was impressive during Senior Bowl week, but his tiny frame and lack of contested catch ability will likely lock him into a gadget role versus a consistent target hog at the next level. Still, the real life Texans would love to have a threat like this in their offense. 

Tier 6 – “Priority Third Round Targets”

Some recognizable names left here, especially at RB and WR, but just not to the level of those who are lumped in the sizable tier above. These players represent solid value in the late-second round into the end of the third round of rookie drafts.

3.05 – RB13 DeWayne McBride [UAB]

Reminds me of: Alexander Mattison
Favorite Landing Spot: Any team who runs zone schemes 

If McBride attended Alabama or Ohio State, he’d likely be ranked much higher by most in the community. Physically, he is sturdy and runs with the power necessary to be considered capable of being a “workhorse” runner. His lateral movement, his max speed and his receiving chops all leave a lot to be desired, however. 

3.06 – WR9 Cedric Tillman [Tennessee] 

Reminds me of: T.O., Randy Moss… or Bryan Edwards
Favorite Landing Spot: New England Patriots

Tillman, who was limited to just six games in 2022, broke out the season prior with a 64-catch, 1,034-yard, 12-touchdown season as a junior. His teammate, Jalin Hyatt, ran with that extra volume this past season, but Tillman’s beefier physique and more physical play-style will still be attractive to teams, especially with the lack of size at WR in this 2023 class. The Patriots could use a big-bodied outside receiver to pair with Juju Smith-Schuster and give QB Mac Jones a big target. 

3.07 – TE4 Darnell Washington [Georgia]

Reminds me of: The Big Show 
Favorite Landing Spot: Las Vegas Raiders 

At 6-7, 264, Washington is an imposing figure. His value to an NFL team as an in-line tight end who can make a huge impact as a blocker will likely outweigh his fantasy value, but with his size, wingspan and speed, who knows? Landing in a situation like Las Vegas after Darren Waller’s departure could be beneficial. 

3.08 RB14 Kenny McIntosh [Georgia] 

Reminds me of: Rachaad White or Kenny Gainwell
Favorite Landing Spot: Cleveland Browns 

On one hand, Georgia has a reputation of splitting the workload among several backs dating back to the likes of Nick Chubb and D’Andre Swift. Perhaps McIntosh’s relatively part-time role (he split carries with Daijun Edwards nearly equally in 2022) was due to Georgia’s tendencies, but McIntosh does not project to be a workhorse in the NFL either way. He is solid bouncing runs outside and is an asset in the passing game, though, and so he will be a factor in the league early on just like White and Gainwell were. 

3.09 – RB15 Deuce Vaughn [Kansas State]

Reminds me of: Doug Martin if he got shrunk by Rick Moranis in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids 
Favorite Landing Spot: Denver Broncos 

It feels wrong to rank a talent like Vaughn this late (RB14!), but with the depth of this RB class along with Vaughn’s obvious, glaring weakness, and this is ultimately where I’d slot him unless he lands in a situation where he could be relied upon for consistent volume. But Vaughn makes Bryce Young look like Andre the Giant, so my expectations are limited to satellite-back and return man duties in the NFL.  

3.10 – RB16 Eric Gray [Oklahoma] 

Reminds me of: Clearance bin Shady McCoy
Favorite Landing Spot: Atlanta Falcons 

Gray is not someone who is going to break many 60-yard touchdown runs, but he is shifty in tight spaces and has a certain “sudden-ness” to his game. I like him as a compliment to someone like Tyler Algeier in the run-heavy scheme in Atlanta, but it’s likely the Falcons invest in the position earlier than Gray is slated to go. 

3.11 – WR10 Tyler Scott [Cincinnati]

Reminds me of: many receivers in this class
Favorite Landing Spot: any team in need of electric speed 

Scott is another of these small, fast wideouts who win with speed and explosiveness. Scott has some developing to do in the finer points of playing the positions, but his raw tools will get him drafted, and if he gets an opportunity to touch the ball consistently, watch out. 

3.12 – TE5 Sam LaPorta [Iowa]

Reminds me of: a fancier MyCole Pruitt 
Favorite Landing Spot: Jacksonville Jaguars

LaPorta was a winner at the combine, running in the 4.5’s with good showings in the explosion drills as well. He can get down field a little bit, and he’s solid after the catch for his position, but he isn’t the contested catch threat that most would expect from someone like him. He has a higher floor than some of the other TE prospects, but a much lower ceiling, in my opinion. 

4.01 – WR11 Rashee Rice [SMU]

Reminds me of: Sometimes Chris Godwin, sometimes Troy Williamson 
Favorite Landing Spot: Feels like a Raven to me

Consistently inconsistent; that is how I would describe Rashee Rice. He’s got lots of spectacular plays on tape, but lapses in concentration and effort are also there. 

Tier 7 – “The Dart Throws”

Take a chance on these players late in your rookie draft.

QB8 Jaren Hall [BYU]

QB9 Stetson Bailey [Georgia]
