We have been doing Superflex rookie mock drafts with our Facebook community since February and will continue running them to gather ADP for the website visitors. With that being said, we wanted to talk about the top portion of the most recent mock and show how much the combine affects the community perception of a player. The mock draft was held live on our youtube channel, so check it out for the full results as well as the results from the 1QB mock done as well.
1. Joe Burrow – QB LSU
Burrow continues to be the consensus top QB in all fantasy formats, and we really don’t see a path that takes him away from the top spot. In Superflex drafts, he’ll be the number one pick whereas in single QB leagues he looks to be a 2nd rounder.
2. Tua Tagovailoa – QB Alabama
With Tua having been given a clean bill of health in Indianapolis, look for him to continue to rise up fantasy draft boards. In Superflex, it looks like we will see him in the top 2-4 range depending on the owner and how they view Tua’s longevity compared to guys like Justin Herbert, Jordan Love and other top QB prospects.
3. Justin Herbert – QB Oregon
Herbert came out of the combine looking even better than he already did, showing off his big arm and overall total package. Herbert will definitely be in the conversation for the number two pick, depending on where he lands in the NFL Draft. The rumors coming from the combine are that the Miami Dolphins love Herbert as much as Tua or possibly more, so anything can happen at the number two pick in Superflex!
4. D’Andre Swift – RB Clemson
This was a bit of a surprise, though the community really is torn between Swift and Taylor as the top running back in this draft class. Both performed well at the combine, but Taylor was clearly seen as the better player, combine results wise.
5. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin
Taylor did awesome, running in the low 4.4’s at the combine but his tape really speaks for itself. He’s a tough, physical runner who performed well in college and at the combine and will do well at the NFL level.
6. J.K. Dobbins – RB Ohio State
Dobbins is an interesting case of a player who hasn’t done anything to hurt his stock, but just seems like the next tier of running back based on the mock drafts we have been conducting in the last month.
7. Cam Akers – RB Florida State
Akers seems firmly in that second tier with Dobbins. Performing well at the combine and carrying the Florida State offense even with a bad offensive line will keep Akers in consideration for a top ten fantasy pick.
8. Jerry Jeudy – WR Alabama
This was really surprising, as Jeudy is seen as the wide receiver 1a in this draft class. Being the top wide receiver, you’d expect him to go right after Taylor and Swift, but he fell a few spots, as running backs tend to get overvalued to most owners.
9. CeeDee Lamb – WR Oklahoma
Lamb continues to impress and we won’t argue you if you take him as your favorite wideout in this class. He has all the tools to be successful, and we see him in Superflex in the 4-6 range pick wise.
10. Henry Ruggs III – WR Alabama
Ruggs is a guy that the combine helped some. People expected him to be fast, and he showed out really nicely in his drills and measurements. For a guy that projects to be a big-play threat, if you can get him in the late first or early second in Superflex that will be huge for your team.
11. Jordan Love – QB Utah State
We expected to see the next tier of quarterbacks, guys that may not start early, in the late first early second in Superflex. Draft position in April could cause some of these guys to shoot up draft boards. Think about if a team like Indy moves on from Brissett and takes Love. He will easily be a top-five pick in your drafts.
12. Tee Higgins – WR Clemson
Higgins pre-combine would’ve been a top ten pick, but this is such a deep class that, though he has all the talent in the world, he just keeps sliding down fantasy drafts.
