Post-Draft Dynasty Rookie Rankings

By Draft Sharks Staff 12:05pm EDT 5/3/21

A question-filled rookie class looks even shakier post-NFL Draft. A bunch of guys landed in tough spots, got poor draft capital or both.

The top half of Round 1 looks solid. And the QB class remains strong. Otherwise, consider trading your rookie picks for proven veterans or 2022 picks.

Below you'll find our top 60 overall dynasty rookie rankings, followed by positional rankings. These assume 1-QB starting lineups and half-PPR scoring. Superflex rookie rankings are here.

Top 60 Overall

1. Najee Harris, RB, Steelers

We all had Harris and Travis Etienne close heading into the draft. And then Harris landed the only clear 3-down job of any RB drafted. The Steelers' stated desire to fix the run game vs. last year's debacle can only help. The remaining issue is an offensive line that has deteriorated over the past couple of years. But Harris is a big back with receiving skills at every level. The talent package he brings, the expected role and the scarcity of worthwhile RB options behind him makes him our top pick for 2021 rookie drafts. (For more on the player, check out his Dynasty Prospect Scouting Report.)

2. Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Bengals

Good luck finding someone who doesn't like Chase as a prospect. He led the overall ranks in our pre-draft set and falls a spot here only because of the stated case for Harris. Simply: You'll find a lot more at WR beyond this than you will at RB. Could Chase have landed in a better spot? Maybe. Tee Higgins looks ready to challenge him for alpha status in Cincinnati. But reuniting with his 2019 QB can't hurt, and a successful Bengals offense could easily fit both of them. Tyler Boyd still does have 2 more years on his contract beyond the coming season, though. (Check out Chase's full Scouting Report.)

3. Travis Etienne, RB, Jaguars

Jacksonville's 1st-round selection of Etienne was a bit surprising. HC Urban Meyer's explanation might have been even more surprising. "He's much more than a running back," Meyer said. "He's a slash. He's got excellent hands and he'll be dual trained. [Dual-threat players] are hard to find, too, but if you can find one we know how to use him." ESPN's Michael DiRocco compared the plan to Meyer's use of Percy Harvin at Florida, which included a near-even split between rushing and receiving. We'll see how this develops. But we'll chase the talent of Etienne here more than we'll worry about how he's deployed. After all, there's no telling how long Meyer -- or James Robinson ... or any of us, really -- will be around. (Check out Etienne's full Scouting Report.)

4. Kyle Pitts, TE, Falcons

Playing in a TE-premium league? Then feel free to bump Pitts further up this list. Frankly, we wouldn't fault you at all for taking him 1st in that format. And you could select him over Etienne even without that boost if you'd like. Pitts is an elite prospect. The only thing keeping him this low on our list is that TE doesn't matter as much as RB or WR in most leagues. We've got nothing else against the guy, though. And it can't hurt his outlook that the Falcons declined TE Hayden Hurst's 5th-year option shortly after the NFL Draft.

5. DeVonta Smith, WR, Eagles

The concerns here are well-documented. So are the accomplishments and skills. Philly placed the remaining piece by trading up 2 spots to secure Smith. He joins an offense with nothing proven at wideout -- other than the need for help. Smith and Reagor figure to battle for top-target status, but we wouldn't bet on either dominating that facet. Smith's familiarity with QB Jalen Hurts from Alabama certainly can't hurt his chances of getting going early.

6. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Dolphins

Did Miami really rate Waddle ahead of even Ja'Marr Chase? It doesn't matter. The Dolphins stuck at 6 and picked Waddle over college teammate DeVonta Smith. So why do we rate Smith higher? Well, we collectively ranked Smith just ahead of Waddle in our pre-draft rankings. And the difference between 6th and 10th in Round 1 probably shouldn't matter all that much. Waddle also faces more competition for targets -- led by DeVante Parker and Will Fuller -- at least in the short term. All told, the 2 Alabama wideouts are close enough that you can feel free to pick your favorite. We'll lean slightly toward the guy who just delivered a historic college season. (Check out Waddle's full Scouting Report.)

7. Javonte Williams, RB, Broncos

You could paint Williams' landing spot as negative (Melvin Gordon's already there) or positive (Denver clearly really likes him or it wouldn't have traded up for him). Ultimately, we just didn't move him from our pre-draft ranking. Williams looks even more clearly like the 3rd RB in this class after the draft. He went 11 picks after #1 Harris and 53 picks ahead of #4 Trey Sermon. We wouldn't bet on Williams facing the same rookie-year workload issues as AJ Dillon did after joining Green Bay in Round 2 a year ago. For one, Gordon isn't nearly as good as Aaron Jones. On top of that, Williams wasn't a surprise Round 2 selection like Dillon. Based on Denver's actions, we'd expect Williams to lead the team in carries right away. That said, we certainly would have preferred to see the Falcons stay and select him. (Check out Williams' full Scouting Report.)

8. Elijah Moore, WR, Jets

Moore didn't make it into Round 1, as some mock drafts had him doing. But being the 2nd pick of Round 2 and the 6th wideout off the board is still pretty strong draft capital. Moore lands in a Jets offense that will be much better off if QB Zach Wilson hits. He'll face target competition from Corey Davis and Denzel Mims (if Mims hits). And we don't yet know whether Jamison Crowder will leave the picture for 2021. But Moore also has the upside to quickly become the target leader for this offense. He certainly brings that kind of prospect profile with him, winning on testing, tape and market shares. He's a much stronger prospect than Crowder was entering the league, and beats Mims on that front as an earlier pick and early declare for the draft.

9. Terrace Marshall, WR, Panthers

Marshall just might have found a sneaky-good landing spot. We wouldn't bet on him overtaking D.J. Moore as the top WR in Carolina. (Though that's not impossible.) But Robby Anderson is heading into the final year of his contract, and Curtis Samuel already left. That presents immediate opportunity. The Panthers clearly believe Sam Darnold to be an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater. And if that proves wrong, we'd have to assume they'll look to address the position in next year's draft. Of course, the biggest mark in Marshall's favor is Marshall himself. Just like Moore, he wins on talent, testing and tape. Marshall has also already displayed the ability to play inside or outside.

10. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jaguars

We've known all along where Lawrence was going. What more is there to say? It's just a matter of how early you want to go QB. We wouldn't fault you for doing so even earlier than this. (Here's the full Scouting Report.)

11. Rashod Bateman, WR, Ravens

Bateman tumbles a bit vs. our pre-draft rankings -- but not because landing in Baltimore is a death knell for his fantasy outlook. It's just that he started out close to Moore and Marshall and didn't land as well. (Two of our 3 pre-draft rankers had that WR trio 8-9-10 in the overall rankings.) Perhaps the Ravens drafted Bateman and Tylan Wallace in hopes of building a bit more passing into the offense. But we wouldn't bet on a Bills-style rebirth because the run-heavy approach has been successful. Baltimore ranked 1st and 11th in Football Outsiders' offensive DVOA the past 2 years. Buffalo, on the other hand, ranked 31st and 21st before last year's shift and explosion. Bateman still looks like 1 of the cleanest WR prospects in this draft. He could well emerge as Baltimore's #1 wideout early in his career. But he'll compete with fellow 1st-round pick Marquise Brown -- as well as Wallace and others for targets -- and ultimately take his slice from a target pie that figures to remain among the smallest in the league. (Check out Bateman's full Scouting Report.)

12. Rondale Moore, WR, Cardinals

Moore gets a bump here for how he landed: 2nd WR in Round 2, 7th overall. Arizona's offense is crowded, but there's also room for Moore to climb to 2nd (behind DeAndre Hopkins) in WR targets early in his career. And HC Kliff Kingsbury looks more willing than many other play-designers to create scenarios for getting Moore the ball. The question with Moore remains this: What's the ultimate upside? But the class gets a lot weaker -- or at least more questionable -- in a hurry beyond this point. (Check out Moore's full Scouting Report.)

13. Trey Lance, QB, 49ers

We love both Lance and Justin Fields, so there's not much separating these 2 in our rankings. If you prefer Fields, then we wouldn't argue against you making him the pick. We'll lean Lance here for landing in the more stable -- and successful -- offense. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel remain in the beginning stages of their NFL development. And we have yet to see what a full season of that duo with TE George Kittle looks like. The long-term upside is huge with Lance. (Check out his full Scouting Report.)

14. Justin Fields, QB, Bears

One could easily call Fields' landing spot worse than Trey Lance's. But he gets Allen Robinson, the best wideout either team has (at least to this point in their careers). And Darnell Mooney looks like a promising deep-ball target. Fields also should be more pro-ready than Lance after starting 22 games at Ohio State over the past 2 seasons. Fields presents obvious rushing upside, but he also performed just as well on the passing front as any other prospect in this class (and better than most). The Bears have said they won't hesitate to start Andy Dalton until Fields is ready, and HC Matt Nagy was the Chiefs OC when they sat Patrick Mahomes or a year behind Alex Smith. But Fields enters the league as a cleaner prospect than Mahomes, and Nagy might be coaching for his job in 2021. We'd bet that Fields will be starting by at least November. (Check out his full Scouting Report.)

15. Trey Sermon, RB, 49ers

Did Sermon land in an unfortunate spot, because the 49ers already have proven NFL performers in Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr.? Or did he land in a great spot because any RB can deliver numbers in the Kyle Shanahan offense? Ultimately, we liked the upside on Sermon heading into the draft. And we're certainly not going to penalize him for going 4th among RBs and landing in such a RB-friendly offense. How high can he climb on the depth chart as a rookie? We'll see. But there's plenty of upside for this range of rookie drafts. (Check out Sermon's full Scouting Report.)

16. Kadarius Toney, WR, Giants

Draft capital is certainly on Toney's side after the Giants grabbed him 20th overall (and apparently broke Urban Meyer's heart in the process). We're still not high on the prospect, who doesn't check any of the usual boxes beyond physical talent. We would have no problem with taking a shot on Toney if he gets to this range in your rookie drafts, though.

17. Michael Carter, RB, Jets

Carter didn't come off the board until Day 3 (2nd pick of Round 4), which should temper anyone's excitement. But he lands in a Jets backfield with no clear leader. Even if Carter doesn't profile as a 3-down bellcow, it's not hard to imagine him leading the team in RB touches right away. That's enough to make him a mid-2nd-rounder in an age where we can't bet on RBs beyond their rookie contracts.

18. Zach Wilson, QB, Jets

Wilson sure seems to present the most bust potential among the top 4 QBs in this class. Of course, we're all really just guessing. We know at least that Wilson should open his rookie season as the starter -- barring summer disaster. And he'll find a solid crew of pass-catchers. In a rookie class that stinks at RB and dwindles quickly at WR, you don't need to love Wilson for him to make sense in Round 2. (Check out his full Scouting Report.)

19. Dyami Brown, WR, Washington

Brown's downfield game makes him the kind of player who could fit right away as a complement to Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel, though that may depend somewhat on the usage plan for Samuel. Whether he emerges as a factor this year or not, we like Brown easily ahead of 2nd-rounders D'Wayne Eskridge and Tutu Atwell in long-term upside. And Brown easily beat fellow 3rd-rounders Josh Palmer, Amari Rodgers and Nico Collins in college production. (Check out Brown's full Scouting Report.)

20. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Lions

None of us was truly excited about St. Brown heading into the Draft. But he did land 23rd in our consensus overall rankings and 12th among WRs -- even with Jared trying to sabotage him. Going to Detroit doesn't give him huge long-term potential. And you certainly shouldn't overpay for the 17th WR drafted. But the situation does present immediate upside. Perhaps we get a nice rookie year from St. Brown and the potential to flip him at elevated value next offseason. (Check out his full Scouting Report.)

21. Nico Collins, WR, Texans

One of our favorite sleepers in this WR class is a post-draft riser. Collins got nice draft capital, going in the 3rd round as the WR14. And he landed in Houston, where he’ll be competing for outside snaps with Brandin Cooks and a bunch of nobodies. It’s possible that he finishes 2nd on the team in targets this season. The QB situation, of course, is the concern.

22. Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Eagles

Like most of the RBs in this class, Gainwell got disappointing draft capital, slipping into the early 5th round. Even more worrisome is that he was the 9th RB off the board. He landed in a decent spot, though. Gainwell can immediately challenge Boston Scott for a pass-catching role behind Miles Sanders. And Sanders is signed with Philly for just 2 more seasons. (Check out Gainwell’s full Scouting Report.)

23. Josh Palmer, WR, Chargers

The Chargers somewhat surprisingly made Palmer the 11th WR off the board when they nabbed him in the middle of the 3rd round. He never stuffed the stat sheet at Tennessee but showed strong contested-catch skills on tape and tested well at 6’1, 210 pounds. Palmer can compete for Los Angeles’ #3 WR spot this year. And Mike Williams is due to hit free agency next offseason.

24. Amari Rodgers, WR, Packers

This landing spot is shakier with the Aaron Rodgers situation. But if A-Rodg sticks around, this Rodgers has a chance to quickly provide fantasy value as Green Bay’s slot receiver. Rodgers doesn’t have high-end size or athleticism but should be NFL-ready coming out of Clemson and is good after the catch.

25. Tylan Wallace, WR, Ravens

Wallace slid all the way into the late 4th round as the WR19 -- a reminder of his athletic limitations and prior ACL tear. The landing spot with the run-loving Ravens isn’t great, either. But Wallace at least finds opportunity to win a top 3 spot on the depth chart. And he brings a strong college production profile.

26. Mac Jones, QB, Patriots

Jones is a better bet than most of the guys in this range to make some fantasy impact. But it’s tough to get excited about the ultimate fantasy upside considering he brings no rushing ability. Think Matt Ryan for the ceiling. (Here’s the full Scouting Report on Jones.)

27. Pat Freiermuth, TE, Steelers

The clear TE2 in this class. Freiermuth got 2nd-round draft capital and joins a Steelers team that has Eric Ebron signed for only 1 more season. There’s a good chance Freiermuth is Pittsburgh’s starter by 2022. The question is who will be throwing him the rock at that point. (Check out Freiermuth’s full Scouting Report.)

28. Tutu Atwell, WR, Rams

Rams HC Sean McVay reportedly sees Atwell as a young version of DeSean Jackson. That’s exactly who Atwell figures to be playing behind at least to open 2021. Jackson, of course, has always had trouble staying healthy, so Atwell could find himself with a sizable role this season. The big difference between those 2 guys, though, is that Jackson is 175 pounds and Atwell just 149. Tough to imagine him becoming a real fantasy asset at that weight. (Here’s our Scouting Report on Atwell.)

29. D'Wayne Eskridge, WR, Seahawks

Even if you believe in Eskridge as a prospect, what’s the upside here? Seattle’s #3 WR has totaled 53, 34 and 47 targets the past 3 seasons. D.K. Metcalf is signed through 2022 and Tyler Lockett through 2025. Eskridge doesn’t have much time to wait around considering he’s already 24. (Check out Eskridge’s full Scouting Report.)

30. Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Patriots

The Patriots backfield is a blessing and a curse. New England has finished top 10 in rushing TDs in 5 straight seasons and top 10 in rushing yards in 4 of those 5. But the RB room tends to be a guessing game from week to week. Stevenson will be cheap in rookie drafts, though, and brings some intrigue as a 227-pounder with nimble feet. Sony Michel is set to hit free agency next offseason.

31. Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers

We were hoping Hubbard would land somewhere where he’d have a chance to win the lead ball-carrying job as part of a committee backfield. In Carolina, his short-term upside is Christian McCaffrey’s handcuff. And even a CMC injury probably wouldn’t turn Hubbard into a 3-down back considering he didn’t excel in the passing game at Oklahoma State. (Here’s the full Scouting Report on Hubbard.)

32. Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Titans

Fitzpatrick is a post-draft riser. He went earlier than expected in the early 4th round as WR16. And he landed on a Titans team looking to replace Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Jonnu Smith, who combined for 192 targets last year. At 6’2 and 208 pounds with 4.49 speed, Fitzpatrick at least has the physical profile to replace Davis. He’ll battle Josh Reynolds among others for that job in 2021.

33. Seth Williams, WR, Broncos

Williams faces an uphill battle as a 6th-round pick joining a currently loaded Broncos WR corps. It’s worth noting, though, that Courtland Sutton is currently slated to hit free agency next offseason. At 6’3, 211 pounds with a 37-inch vertical, Williams could be the Sutton replacement in a best-case scenario.

34. Anthony Schwartz, WR, Browns

Schwartz was an actual track star in high school and college and blazed a 4.27-second 40 time at his Pro Day. There’s not much else to his game besides speed right now, but the Browns did spend a 3rd-round pick on him. We’ll see what their plans are for him. The downside is that Odell Beckham is signed through 2023; Jarvis Landry through 2022.

35. Simi Fehoko, WR, Cowboys

Fehoko is an intriguing developmental prospect: A 6’4, 222-pounder with 4.44 speed, a 34.5-inch vertical and nice agility. He’s a long shot for 2021 fantasy value, of course. But beyond that, Michael Gallup will be a free agent next offseason and there’s a chance Amari Cooper will be a salary-cap casualty with his $22 million price tag.

36. Cornell Powell, WR, Chiefs

Powell was just a 1-year producer at Clemson. But he was a highly regarded recruit out of high school and tested as an above-average athlete at 6’0, 204 pounds. Of course, the big selling point here is the opportunity to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes. Kansas City’s WR corps is unsettled behind Tyreek Hill.

37. Elijah Mitchell, RB, 49ers

This 6th-round pick joins a crowded 49ers backfield alongside fellow rookie Trey Sermon, plus veterans Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and Wayne Gallman. Mitchell isn’t even a lock to make the final roster. But there’s also a chance he captures a role in 1 of the league’s top rushing attacks. Mitchell brings some juice with a 4.35-second 40 time, an 83rd-percentile vertical, a 94th-percentile broad jump and a 71st-percentile 3-cone drill.

38. Javian Hawkins, RB, Falcons

Here’s the 1st undrafted player to make our rankings. We’ve seen undrafted RBs make noise recently in Phillip Lindsay and James Robinson -- but those guys are still much more the exception than the rule. Hawkins is a long shot but at least landed in a backfield with some short- and plenty of long-term opportunity. Mike Davis is signed for 2 years, and behind him sits Cordarrelle Patterson and Qadree Ollison. (Here’s the full Scouting Report on Hawkins.)

39. Kene Nwangwu, RB, Vikings

Minnesota surprisingly made Nwangwu the 6th RB off the board. It’s a bet on traits and athleticism. Nwangwu totaled just 150 touches (143 carries, 7 catches) across 4 seasons at Iowa State. But he flashes elite burst on tape and tested as a 99th percentile athlete. He’ll battle for the #3 RB job in Minnesota this year. Dalvin Cook is signed through 2025 and Alexander Mattison through 2022.

40. Kylin Hill, RB, Packers

Hill was 1 of our favorite pre-draft sleepers after excelling as a runner in 2019 and a pass-catcher in 2020. His stock takes a hit, though, after he sunk to the late 7th round of the NFL Draft. He also joins a crowded Packers backfield behind Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. The hope here is that Hill can eventually take on Jamaal Williams’ old role as a change-of-pace and pass-catching back behind Jones.

41. Khalil Herbert, RB, Bears

We liked Herbert pre-draft for his size (5’9, 210), contact balance and 2020 breakout (154-1182-8 in 11 games). Round 6 draft status stinks, but Chicago’s at least a decent spot for eventually earning a backfield role. Tarik Cohen is coming off an ACL tear; David Montgomery is signed through the 2022 season.

42. Larry Rountree, RB, Chargers

An experienced SEC rusher with 746 career carries, Rountree looks like a solid all-round RB — albeit one without a special quality. He came off the board in Round 6 to a Chargers backfield that’s unsettled behind Austin Ekeler. The 26-year-old Ekeler is signed through 2023.

43. Hunter Long, TE, Dolphins

Long enjoyed a breakout 2020 at Boston College (57-685-5). He has in-line TE size at 6’5, 254 pounds and adequate athleticism. A Round 3 pick, Long could slide into Miami’s starting role as early as 2022, when Mike Gesicki is scheduled to hit free agency. (Check out the Scouting Report on Long.)

44. Kellen Mond, QB, Vikings

Mond came off the board 7th among QBs, just 2 picks into Round 3. He brings excellent arm strength, rushing upside and experience as a 4-year starter (47 games). The Vikings currently have Kirk Cousins under contract through the 2022 season.

45. Jaelon Darden, WR, Bucs

Darden’s college tape was a blast to watch. At 5’9, 174 pounds, he possesses rare speed, burst and change-of-direction ability. The 4th-round investment is decent, but there’s a chance he maxes out as a gadget type with return upside. He’ll begin his pro career buried on the Bucs’ depth chart.

46. Racey McMath, WR, Titans

A 4-year player, McMath struggled to emerge from a crowded LSU depth chart. Across the past 2 seasons (20 games), he managed just 31-480-4. He missed 4 games in 2020 due to a hamstring injury. McMath brings ideal height/weight/speed but will likely start out as a special teamer. Tennessee’s weak WR depth works in the rookie’s favor, but note that the Titans drafted Louisville WR Dez Fitzpatrick 96 picks earlier.

47. Marquez Stevenson, WR, Bills

Stevenson ran a 4.45 at his Pro Day, and it shows on tape. He adds return value to a Bills squad that’s set at WR in the short-term with Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders and Gabriel Davis.

48. Mike Strachan, WR, Colts

Strachan looks like a project coming out of D-2 Charleston. But there are intriguing tools to work with here. At 6’5, 226 pounds, he has an enormous wingspan (82¼”) and ample straight-line speed (4.54 forty). He went for 48-1,007-8 and 78-1,319-19 over the past 2 seasons. Strachan, a Round 7 pick, turns 24 before the regular season. The Colts look thin at WR behind T.Y. Hilton — a 31-year-old — and Michael Pittman.

49. Tommy Tremble, TE, Panthers

Tremble’s an elite blocker with positional versatility and stellar athleticism. He didn’t produce much at Notre Dame (35-401-4 across 2019 and 2020) but landed with a creative Carolina coaching staff. There’s a path to early playing time here. (Check out the pre-draft Scouting Report on Tremble.)

50. Tre' McKitty, TE, Chargers

McKitty was a surprising Round 3 pick. He exits college with a career line of 56-628-3 across 3 years at Florida State and 1 at Georgia. Given the investment, though, the Chargers clearly see starting potential for the 6’4, 246-pounder. McKitty will spend 2021 behind Jared Cook and Donald Parham — a pair of veterans on 1-year deals.

51. Brevin Jordan, TE, Texans

Jordan’s undersized at 6’3, 247 pounds. The former #1 TE recruit in the nation enjoyed a breakout 2020 (38-576-7), but he tested as a below-average athlete this spring. A 5th-round pick, Jordan lands on a Texans squad that needs both playmakers and long-term QB stability. (Here's our Scouting Report on Jordan.)

52. Chris Evans, RB, Bengals

Evans didn’t do much in 2020: 16 carries, 73 yards and 1 score in 6 games. But he caught 9 balls in the limited sample and, more importantly, exits Michigan with 49 career receptions. An explosive athlete with strong change of direction skills, Evans looks like an NFL sleeper who could push to be Joe Mixon’s backup in the short-term. Cincinnati recently released Gio Bernard.

53. Gerrid Doaks, RB, Dolphins

Doaks has lead back size (5’11, 228), a solid athletic profile and some pass-catching ability. Still, he fell to Round 7. The Dolphins at least remain without a long-term, locked-in RB1.

54. Jacob Harris, TE, Rams

Here’s one of the freak athletes of the 2021 draft. Harris ran a 4.43 forty with a 40.5-inch vertical, an 11-inch broad jump and a 6.51-second 3-cone. The guy stands 6’5, 219 pounds. While Harris likely starts out on special teams for the Rams, he could work his way into an offensive role in year 2 or 3. At 24, he is one of the older prospects in this class.

55. Jalen Camp, WR, Jaguars

With a massive 78” wingspan and a nearly 40-inch vertical, Camp (6’2, 226) has some enticing traits. The Georgia Tech product is simply a project. He compiled just 48-808-5 across 5 seasons (48 career games). Said GM Trent Baalke: [He’s] another guy that’s a great culture fit, has a great work ethic, an excellent mindset, and he has the physical traits to develop and help us not only as a receiver, but hopefully play an important role on special teams if he reaches his potential.”

56. Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR, Vikings

ISM combines excellent speed and strong overall athleticism. A 4-year player Iowa, he remains in need of polish. Return experience likely helped him land in Round 5, although the Vikings are clearly thin at WR behind their top 2.

57. Jonathan Adams, WR, Lions

Adams won in contested catch situations in college. He brings the size and athleticism you’d expect from that type of WR — 6’2, 210 pounds with a 39-inch vertical — but not much else. The fact that he went undrafted in a talent-thin year says a lot.

58. Tamorrion Terry, WR, Seahawks

Terry goes 6’3, 207 pounds with plenty of deep speed. He hit 19.8 yards per catch in 2 of 3 seasons at Florida State. Character concerns and knee surgery from this past October likely contributed to Terry going undrafted. We wouldn’t be shocked if he finds more success than Round 3 teammate D'Wayne Eskridge. (Check out the full Scouting Report on Terry.)

59. Dazz Newsome, WR, Bears

A 4-year player at UNC, Newsome brings subpar size (5’10, 190) and well below average athleticism. Chicago at least provides a fine landing spot. For now, Allen Robinson remains under the franchise tag. And you have to love the arrival of Justin Fields.

60. Kyle Trask, QB, Bucs

Trask posted huge numbers at Florida in 2020 (4,283-43-8). He came off the board in Round 2 but doesn’t have a clear path to playing time with Tom Brady signed through 2022.
