With the regular season now in the rearview mirror, dynasty players have shifted their focus to the offseason, which means a number of things: trading, rookie draft preparation, and careful roster construction.
With some holding the opinion that 2019’s rookie crop is weaker than the last couple classes, I’ve seen many ask about potentially shifting their 2019 picks for 2020 picks. With that in mind, I hope to provide a first look at some of the players that make the 2020 rookie class incredibly impressive on paper.
Note: These are just my personal ranks and tiers. For a look at where these players stand for all of our rankers at DLF, check out our composite devy rankings here.

Another first-round Georgia running back? You bet. Swift is incredibly fun to watch, combining plus athleticism, vision, balance, and hands into the complete package, and is everything you want in a running back. Swift stood out as a true freshman in a backfield with Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, and Elijah Holyfield for his utilization in the pass game and only continued to excel in his sophomore campaign.
