I’m here to warn you. These players are destined to be overdrafted. Don’t be a victim of their hype. They’re all big names who look nice on paper, but I don’t see them necessarily becoming viable producers. Before you begin your rookie drafts, let’s go over some names you need to think twice about taking.
Royce Freeman, RB DEN
DLF Rookie ADP: 8
Royce Freeman is a solid talent who landed in a fantastic spot. I’m not telling you to take him off of your board. He’s clearly worth investing a first round pick in. The eighth pick though? There’s better talent available if you’re asking me. C.J. Anderson was a top ten rusher for Denver in 2017, but other than that, Bronco rushers have been fairly unreliable of late. Freeman may be able to put an end to that, but he’s not a game-breaking talent. If you draft the former Duck, you’re betting on him winning the starting job and holding on to it long-term.
