Pre-Draft Dynasty Rookie Rankings

By Draft Sharks Staff 9:04am EDT 4/22/19


We have 3 of the 4 pieces of the dynasty rookie rankings puzzle. The 4th will come at the NFL Draft later this week.

But before we find out where all these new guys will be playing, let’s set a foundation by ranking the rookies based on their college production, athleticism and tape. We’ve spent the past couple of months laying out detailed scouting reports on these guys for you.

Smola, Schauf and English each submitted pre-draft rankings. Then we averaged them out for a composite list. We’ll get together post-draft to hash out a unified set of rankings for your dynasty rookie drafts.

Below you’ll find top 25 overall rankings, followed by some commentary on guys with the biggest discrepancies in our individual rankings. Finally, check out the positional rankings — the top 8 QBs, 20 RBs, 25 WRs and 8 TEs.
