The 2018 rookie class is set and I couldn’t wait to get a group of our writers together for some mock drafts. Unlike recent years, there is basically no consensus order, even in the early portion of rookie drafts. Expect every mock draft or set of rookie rankings to be quite different, at least until we learn more information at next month’s NFL Combine. With disagreement comes value and it is never too early to begin tracking the value of your favorite rookies.
You might be thinking that you just read this exact same article. But this mock draft included once very important change from our previously posted one. This is based on a 2QB format. While there are questions about each of the quarterbacks in this class, as a super-flex dynasty player, I am encouraged by the volume of solid signal-callers entering the league this year.
Here are the participants, listed in draft order:
- Michael Zingone
- Nathan Powell
- James Koutoulas
- Doug Green
- Jake Anderson
- George Kritikos
- Peter Howard
- Ryan McDowell
- Joseph Nammour
- Bruce Matson
- Kyle Holden
1.01 – N’Keal Harry, WR Arizona State
Just as in the previous rookie mock draft, Arizona State’s Harry is the top pick. While this would appear to show a consensus, that is actually not the reality this early in the process. At least three players have a claim to be the top pick and that grows even larger in the superflex format.
1.02 – Dwayne Haskins, QB Ohio State
It didn’t take long for the first quarterback to come off the board as Ohio State’s Haskins is picked second overall. This looks like one of the weakest quarterback classes in many years and the scarcity of signal callers could leave both NFL team and fantasy owners to reach for the few solid candidates.
