2024 Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft

Caleb Williams ... But Then What?

Chances are, you have a dynasty rookie draft coming up.

Maybe it's superflex -- a growing format.

That's why we gathered the Draft Sharks staff to run a three-round dynasty superflex rookie mock draft.

So, how'd it all shake out behind Caleb Williams at the 1.01?

Let's jump into the action.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this article ran through a three-round dynasty superflex rookie mock draft. The DS staff got together to draft two additional rounds on March 25.

Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft – Round 1

1.01 – Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Alex Korff: Williams is the quintessential 1.01 in superflex rookie drafts. Fantasy managers have been waiting for the opportunity to draft him for years, some tanking to guarantee the 1.01 pick.

Williams' ability to read defenses and make split-second decisions translates into fantasy gold. Plus, his dual-threat capability adds a safe baseline to his profile.

With a high ceiling in the NFL, Williams is poised to be a cornerstone for dynasty teams, providing long-term value and upside that's hard to match.

(That being said, I still almost took Marvin Harrison Jr.)

1.02 – Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Kevin English: I’m willing to look past a thin frame (6’4, 210) to chase a huge rushing ceiling.

Consider: Daniels tallied 125 scrambles over the past two seasons at LSU. Over that time, he racked up 2,019 rushing yards.

Spot-start QB1 value is in play as soon as this fall.

1.03 – Drake Maye, QB, UNC

Matt Schauf: Maye delivered plenty of passing and rushing production across two seasons starting at UNC.

The 1,209 career rushing yards (even with sack yardage removed) make him especially intriguing for fantasy.

Take the Guesswork out of Dynasty Superflex Leagues 

1.04 – Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Matt: Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze have seemed to generate more buzz lately, but that's only because Harrison has been a known quantity for longer.

He racked up 14 TD catches each of the past two years and averaged 16.9 yards per catch for his Ohio State career.

Expect this NFL legacy WR to be the first wideout drafted in April and deliver wherever he lands.

1.05 – Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Jared Smola: Nabers didn't deliver as impressive a sophomore season as Harrison. But he beat the Buckeye last year in catches, receiving yards, yards per route, and Pro Football Focus receiving grade.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein grades Nabers as the top WR in the class.

1.06 – Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

C.H. Herms: Odunze is a tremendous consolation prize for WR-needy managers who miss out on Harrison Jr. or Nabers. The former Washington standout possesses a great combination of size (6'3) and speed (4.45-second 40 time) that should bode well for his NFL future.

Whether he can develop greater route diversity will determine if he can become more than just a traditional X receiver. But he's a great swing here.

1.07 – Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Shane Hallam: Bowers has the chance to deliver the fantasy production that Kyle Pitts hasn't. He cleared the 6'3 mark at the Combine, giving him the ability to play in-line -- as well as in the slot.

Bowers adds versatility as a weapon (5 rushing TDs in his college career) and broke out early in the SEC (18 years old).

Even a team with average passing volume should pepper Bowers with targets.

1.08 – Brian Thomas Jr., LSU

Kevin: Thomas broke out in the fall, leading the nation in TD catches (17) while notching 17.3 yards per catch.

He then showed out at the Combine with an all-time great Relative Athletic Score of 9.97 (out of 10).

He’s simply a rare blend of size (6’3, 209) and athleticism. And by all accounts, the former LSU star will be a top-20 draft pick.

1.09 – J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Shane: It could be a bit risky to take McCarthy this high. But it's worthwhile given that he looks likely to go in Round 1 of the NFL Draft.

McCarthy's lack of pass volume raises a red flag with NFL teams, but he has the traits to be a successful pro QB.

Add in his 508 rushing yards over the last two years, and the fantasy upside is larger than most analysts have realized.

(Check our dynasty superflex ADP to see how the market rates McCarthy.)

1.10 – Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Kevin: Mitchell recorded a 29-426-4 receiving line as a true freshman at Georgia (2021).

He didn’t truly break out until transferring to Texas ahead of the 2023 season, where he tallied 55-845-11 in a crowded offense.

Mitchell’s size-speed combo (6'2, 205, 4.34-second 40 time) might make him a Round 1 pick – ideally to Kansas City or Buffalo.

1.11 – Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Kevin: Worthy’s Combine-record 40 time – 4.21 seconds – certainly adds to his appeal. But if you watch the tape, you can see that he’s more than just a one-speed WR.

He's capable of running routes to uncover at all levels.

His size is somewhat concerning (5’11, 165 pounds), but he's generally expected to be a Round 1 pick. 

1.12 – Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Matt: Expect NFL Draft capital to heavily impact this pick.

I'll go Franklin a little ahead of Ladd McConkey now because of better college production and a more-downfield game that could deliver greater stat efficiency. But I'd have no problem shifting to McConkey if he gets drafted ahead of Franklin.

I'll also consider Bo Nix here if he lands in Round 1.

Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft – Round 2

2.01 – Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

Jared: This feels like a good time to break the ice on the RB class.

Brooks sat behind Bijan Robinson his first two years at Texas and then tore his ACL this past November. But in between he averaged 114 rushing yards and 1.0 TDs per game, ranking top-12 among 159 qualifying RBs in both Pro Football Focus rushing grade and elusive rating.

Brooks also caught 25 passes last year and looks like a potential three-down back.

2.02 – Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

Herms: McConkey stood out in drills at both the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine by showcasing his reliable hands and ability to separate from defenders. Though he didn't see much usage out of the slot in college (29.6%), he could fit there in the NFL.

That kind of role can see a player get peppered with targets and yield solid PPR production in fantasy.

Managers should be glad to look for McConkey in this range of rookie drafts.

2.03 – Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

Alex: [*Whispers*] “6’3” and 213lbs.” [Goosebumps.]

Coleman's Combine performance was merely fine-to-subpar, earning him a RAS score of 8.05 and a 33rd-percentile rating in athleticism by the Draft Sharks Rookie Prospect Model for WRs.

But he is a big WR with excellent ball skills.

His ceiling makes him worth the pick near the 1-2 turn. His rookie ADP figures to be impacted strongly by where Coleman gets drafted.

2.04 – Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin

Herms: Allen is a 6'1, 235-pound beast of a man who turned just 20 in January.

Though he's limited as a pass-catcher, he posted solid numbers in his three-year stint as Wisconsin's workhorse. His blend of size, power, and under-appreciated agility should translate to the NFL.

Allen is a 1A-type hammer back.

2.05 – Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

Jared: After transferring from Oregon, Benson led Florida State in rushing in each of the last two seasons while averaging a strong 6.1 yards per carry. He helped himself at the Combine with a 4.39-second 40 time at 216 pounds.

Benson certainly has the look of a lead back at the next level. We've heard that he has a chance to be the first RB off the board in the NFL Draft.

2.06 – Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

Kevin: This one’s pretty simple. Penix boasts a power arm and posted excellent production over the past two seasons.

Now it sounds like the 2023 Heisman runner-up has a chance at Round 1 draft capital.

Even if he doesn’t see the field much (or at all) in 2024, his potential to start by 2025 makes him worth a shot in the middle of Round 2. 

2.07 – Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

Matt: Nix didn't break out until his age-22 season, after a transfer from Auburn to Oregon. Maybe he needed to get away from a shaky program to get there, but the slow rise adds some risk.

That said, middle of Round 2 mitigates risk when you're landing a potential starting QB in a superflex rookie draft. And we are talking about a guy who spent all five college seasons as a starter.

Expect Nix's NFL landing spot to affect his dynasty ADP -- perhaps drastically. If he hits in the pros, he could be an efficient passer with some rushing upside (38 rushing scores across five seasons).

2.08 – Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Alex: Wilson pops on film, and his analytical profile is fairly strong.

A decent-sized slot receiver with some success in the return game is often a solid bet for NFL production. If his route running continues to improve, he will be able to thrive at the next level.

Wilson is a solid bet in the late second round of rookie drafts.

2.09 – Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

Shane: There is plenty of evidence Corum can be a 3-down RB in the NFL.

Multiple years of production and short-area footwork line up with what many NFL teams are looking for. He also flashes good hands and receiving ability -- in addition to churning out tough yards on the ground.

The film is excellent, and the 8.48 RAS shows Corum has the athleticism to make it.

2.10 – Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee

Jared: I'm surprised to see Wright still hanging around deep into Round 2 after a sizzling Combine.

The 210-pounder blazed a 4.38-second 40 time and earned a 98th-percentile RAS.

Wright left Tennessee with a career 6.2 yards-per-carry average and even caught 22 balls last year. There's three-down ability here.

2.11 – MarShawn Lloyd, RB, USC

Shane: Despite never having a 1,000-yard rushing season, Lloyd's physical talents and athleticism are NFL-starter quality.

His 4.40 speed at 220 pounds is pretty special. His smooth transition and cuts jump off the tape.

The medical will be key to his draft capital, but Round 3-4 is enough for Lloyd to get his shot and never look back.

2.12 – Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

Matt: Corley broke out at 19, topped 70 catches each of the past three years, and gains points with me by looking like Michael B. Jordan's character from Black Panther in his headshot.

Corley benefited from a pass-heavy Western Kentucky offense but also carried big leads over teammates in receptions, yards, and TD catches each of the past two years.

He impressed at the Senior Bowl but skipped Combine workouts. So Corley's pro day could affect how early he gets drafted.

Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft – Round 3

3.01 – Devontez Walker, WR, UNC

Shane: Walker got dinged for a poor Senior Bowl, but he remains one of the most explosive WRs in the draft.

His first step is electric and made plenty of corners look foolish this season.

Walker has more upside than Josh Downs did last year due to play speed.

3.02 – Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

Alex: Legette graded out nicely in the Draft Sharks Rookie Model, with no apparent red flags. He was good -- though not amazing -- in every category. 

Legette is a compelling third-round rookie pick, given his solid speed and productivity.

His ability to stretch the field aligns perfectly with the evolving dynamics of the NFL, offering fantasy teams a high-upside asset. Plus, I have always had a soft spot for wide receivers with a history of kick returns.

3.03 – Jacob Cowing, WR, Arizona

Matt: If Cowing were bigger than 5'8 and 168 pounds, he'd have more people excited. This is late enough, though, to overlook that question and chase a guy who claimed 31.5% target shares in both his age-19 and age-20 seasons.

Cowing maintained top-target status through his transfer to Arizona, reaching 85 catches each of the past two years.

He has also produced both as a downfield target and on shorter catch-and-run opportunities.

3.04 – Ja'Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

Shane: I'm not 100% sold Sanders is the TE2 in the class. But he has the physical prowess to be an inline TE who can be schemed into receptions.

Sanders is physical after the catch and got better with understanding zone coverage spacing this year.

He's raw, but an upside TE shot is worth the third-round price.

3.05 – Audric Estime, RB, Notre Dame

Herms: Estime didn't blow people away at the NFL Combine. His 4.71-second 40 time ranked slowest among RBs.

That'll certainly hurt his draft prospects. But he's still a powerful runner with plenty of size (221 pounds) and profiles as a short-yardage hammer.

I'd be fine taking a chance on him in the third round of rookie drafts.

3.06 – Bucky Irving, RB, Oregon

Jared: Irving would have gone much higher in this mock before a borderline disastrous Combine.

Small and unathletic, Irving is now a longshot to emerge as an NFL lead back.

But his pass-catching skills can still prove useful, especially in PPR leagues. Irving racked up 87 catches for 712 yards and 5 TDs over the past two seasons.

3.07 – Ricky Pearsall, WR, Florida

Herms: Pearsall isn't the most athletically gifted receiver in this class. He'll likely peak as a team's WR3.

But he's got solid hands and is crafty enough with his routes to hang in the league for a while.

Not a bad use of a late third-round pick.

3.08 – Isaiah Davis, RB, South Dakota State

Alex: Davis is a 218-pound RB who was productive in college, has adequate athleticism, and can catch passes. 

He is a physical runner who had the fourth-highest Film Score among running backs in this class. 

That is the type of profile I like to throw darts at in the third round. 

3.09 – Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky

Kevin: Davis’ breakout came as a true freshman at Temple (193-936-8). He also had stops at Vanderbilt and Kentucky, hitting 1,000 rushing yards at both.

The compactly built (5'9, 211) Davis runs with power.

He’s not a burner, but NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein labeled Davis a “three-down back.”

3.10 – Jermaine Burton, WR, Alabama

Jared: My favorite sleeper in this WR class.

Burton is a former four-star recruit who struggled to find playing time at Georgia. But he transferred to Alabama in 2022 and led the Tide in receiving yards each of the past two years, while averaging a big 18.7 yards per catch.

Burton should bring big-play pop to his NFL team.

3.11 – Ja'Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

Alex: Polk is a prototypically sized wideout who had a productive college career. He's a physical receiver who will need to refine his route-running in the NFL.

Big plays and winning contested catches will help him get drafted but won’t be enough to make him fantasy-relevant without some progression.

3.12 – Jamari Thrash, WR, Louisville

Herms: Thrash is generally expected to be a one-trick, field-stretching WR at the next level.

He's not huge (6'0, 188 pounds), but his 4.46-second 40 time and quick initial burst are solid enough to take a late stab here.

It came down to Thrash and WR Ryan Flournoy from Southeast Missouri State, another developmental player worth a shoutout.

Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft – Round 4

4.01 – Isaac Guerendo, RB, Louisville

Kevin: Guerendo never saw significant snaps at Wisconsin, but he found playing time at Louisville last fall. Playing the 1B role behind fellow draft hopeful Jawhar Jordan, Guerendo posted an excellent 4.11 yards after contact per attempt.

The real draw here is his otherworldly athleticism, as he posted at least 95th percentile marks in the broad jump, vertical, and 40-yard dash. Size-adjusted (6’0, 221 pounds), he’s even more of a freakish athlete. I’ll take a shot on that profile in the 4th.

4.02 – Kimani Vidal, RB, Troy

Matt: Vidal ranked sixth among RBs in PFF rushing grade last season, second in missed tackles forced, and 26th (among 231 with 70+ carries) in elusive rating. I was already intrigued with the Troy workhorse (781 career carries, 92 receptions) before the Combine. And then he delivered a 4.46-second 40 time for an 87th-percentile speed score.

Vidal is one of my favorite sleepers amid a lackluster RB class.

4.03 – Theo Johnson, TE, Penn State

Jared: Johnson hits the NFL with underwhelming college production. But he's a freakish athlete, posting a 4.57-second 40 time and 39.5-inch vertical at 6'6 and 259 pounds. That makes him an upside shot worth taking in the fourth round of rookie drafts.

4.04 – Ryan Flournoy, WR, Southeast Missouri State

Herms: I hadn't a clue who Flournoy was before attending the Senior Bowl. Nonetheless, the former Southeast Missouri State wideout showed up and performed against D-1 cornerbacks in drills all week. Coming from the FCS level, that's no easy task. On the strength of that performance alone, I'll be taking plenty of shots on Flournoy.

4.05 – Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina

Matt: The Oklahoma Rattler of 2020 looked like he was on the Baker Mayfield-Kyler Murray path. He diverted from that wildly over the next three years and then ran just a 26th-percentile 40 time at the Combine. So there's probably not much rushing value coming. But this is late enough to make him worth a shot in superflex. I reserve the right to change that if he lands on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.

4.06 – Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State

Alex: Sinnott is an athletic freak (9.49 RAS) who was a walk-on at K-state. He lettered in FIVE sports in high school and was named to the all-state team as a TE, WR, and DE by the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association. If he played some QB, I would be getting some serious Taysom Hill vibes. I like betting on athletic tight ends to break out from the late rounds.

They have low opportunity cost and a lot of upside when they hit. Throw him on a taxi squad and see what happens.

4.07 – Michael Pratt, QB, Tulane

Matt: Pratt's a fun pick for superflex leagues and might wind up ahead of Rattler on my list by NFL Draft time. He just profiles like an overlooked college QB. Pratt didn't post big college numbers. But he started all four years at Tulane and threw at least 20 TDs with 8 or fewer INTs every season. He added decent rushing production (including 28 TDs) and is expected to run a well-above-average 40 time for the position. (He didn't run it at the Scouting Combine.)

The arm doesn't wow you but looks like enough. I'm intrigued.

4.08 – Will Shipley, RB, Clemson

Herms: I'm a little surprised Shipley fell this far. The former Clemson back has a good combo of size (5'11, 210 pounds) and receiving ability that could make him a solid rotation guy in an NFL backfield.

4.09 – Javon Baker, WR, UCF

Kevin: After two quiet years at Alabama, Baker transferred to UCF before the 2022 season. He proved productive as an outside WR, particularly last fall when he tallied 3.21 yards per route run and nearly 22 yards per catch.

At 6’1, 202 pounds, Baker could push for starting snaps in year two.

4.10 – Brenden Rice, WR, USC

Alex: Rice is a big WR (6’2 and 208 pounds) with above-average route running. His analytical profile was solid, with a slightly below-average athleticism score (48th percentile). I care less about athleticism at wide receiver than I would at RB or TE. Rice has an agreement factor in the model of 4.0, which is well above the average. That means all factors in the model pretty well agree he is a solid prospect.

A key indicator I like to use in later-round WR picks is if their normalized film scores are significantly higher than their analytical scores. Rice checks that box. Keep an eye on him in your rookie drafts' 4th or 5th rounds.

4.11 – Tyrone Tracy Jr., RB, Purdue

Jared: My favorite sleeper in this RB class. Tracy is a converted WR, so you know he has pass-catching chops. And he flashed as a runner last year, averaging 6.3 yards per carry and ranking fifth among 159 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein notably has Tracy graded as the fourth-best RB in the class.

4.12 – Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State

Shane: I'll take a swing at Wilson's unique size and athleticism. If he can be drafted into an offense that unlocks how to utilize a 6'6, 230-pound WR, the upside is tremendous.

Dynasty Superflex Rookie Mock Draft – Round 5

5.01 – Frank Gore Jr., RB, Southern Mississippi

Alex: Senior helped me win some games back in the day, and I want to see if Frank Gore Jr. can do the same. Junior is a little undersized (5’8” and 201 pounds), so he doesn't have the prototypical size we want for a three-down back. He was pretty productive as a workhouse in college but seems to lack the burst of a highly drafted prospect.

The goal is to see if an NFL team takes a shot on the name in the later rounds. He is a fun dart throw to start the 5th round.

5.02 – Cade Stover, TE, Ohio State

Matt: Nothing lights my fire like a 24-year-old TE who logged just five career catches before his fourth college season. But Stover closed his run by ranking third and tied for second in receptions on a pair of good Ohio State teams.

And then he ran well at the Combine (79th-percentile speed score). Stover's high Agreement Factor in the DS Rookie Model posits him as a fairly safe bet -- albeit at modest expectations.

5.03 – Dylan Laube, RB, New Hampshire

Alex: Laube is a small-school (New Hampshire) player who could find a spot on an NFL roster as a kick returner with some receiving potential. He's a good late-round dart throw in case he finds a strong fit on draft day. He also scored better on film than he did analytically, which has some signal as an indicator for low-level RB prospects (Examples: Isiah Pacheco, Keaton Mitchell, Kyren Williams).

5.04 – Joe Milton, QB, Tennessee

Kevin: Milton brings ideal size (6’5, 235) and exceptional arm strength. The issue is a lack of accuracy, which might drop him to late Day 3. If he can harness the arm, though, Milton could eventually develop into a useful fantasy piece – especially once you factor in his rushing ability.

5.05 – Kendall Milton, RB, Georgia

Shane: Milton flashed a ton of potential early in his college career as a potential lead back. It didn't quite come together, but he has enough explosion and juice to make a team.

5.06 – Jha'Quan Jackson, WR, Tulane

Jared: Jackson contributed as a receiver, runner, and returner at Tulane -- which has proven to have some predictive power when projecting WRs to the next level. We'll see what kind of draft capital he gets, but there's shades of Wan'Dale Robinson to Jackson's game.

5.07 – Luke McCaffrey, WR, Rice

Kevin: Luke is the brother of Christian McCaffrey, so it’s no surprise he tested off the charts last month (9.40 Relative Athletic Score). While he’s on the raw side – McCaffrey’s only played two years of WR – I think his traits (at 6’2, 198) get him drafted by Round 6.

5.08 – Dillon Johnson, RB, Washington

Herms: Johnson performed well as Washington's lead back last season after not doing a ton over his previous seasons at Mississippi State. Finding a quality runner with some receiving skills this late in the draft is a nice gift.

5.09 – Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington

Jared: McMillan was Washington's clear No. 3 WR last year -- behind fellow 2024 prospects Rome Odunze and Ja'Lynn Polk. McMillan actually beat Polk in yards per route run, though, and looks like a potential starting slot receiver in the NFL.

5.10 – Jase McClellan, RB, Alabama

Shane: He's a pretty uninspiring pick, but Alabama's starting RB is worth a shot. They have translated better than the consensus view (see Brian Robinson).

If McClellan can get some playing time due to injury, he would hold his own.

5.11 – Emani Bailey, RB, TCU

Herms: A 4.61 40 time definitely sank Bailey's stock for me a bit, especially considering he's already a very small back (5'7, 202 pounds). Still, he's a fairly muscular guy for his frame and has the ability to at least hang around on an NFL depth chart somewhere.

5.12 – Jordan Travis, QB, Florida State

Shane: He's probably a wasted pick, but Travis’ grit and athleticism could get him a backup job somewhere. Enough upside for a taxi squad spot on my fantasy team.
