2023 Off-Season Mock Drafts: Monday Mock Piggyback

John DiBari makes his rookie draft selections based on early ADP.

Zach Charbonnet

Welcome back to another edition of the 2023 off-season mock draft series. This time around, I'm going to be using some actual rookie data for the first time. DLFs very own Ryan McDowell has been writing his McDowell's Monday Mocks Series for a while, looking at various mock-related topics. This past Monday, for the first time this season, McDowell gave the dynasty world a sneak peek at the emerging incoming rookie ADP.

Using the information from that article, I essentially auto-drafted a rookie mock using DLF's mock draft simulator tool. Then, when I was on the clock, I selected the highest remaining player according to the Monday Mock article. No need to get my pesky brain involved; simply select the best player remaining according to early ADP, as if you were setting up a pre-draft ahead of your draft.

I set the draft up as a 12-team, five-round rookie draft, single QB, PPR, without tight end premium scoring. I was randomly assigned the ninth pick. So, with all the formalities set aside- let's go!

Round One

The draft went fairly chalky until it got to me. I was hoping I could get Zach Evans, but he went fifth. Truthfully, I'm already falling out of love with the famed 2023 class. Consulting McDowell's Monday Mocks, the best player available is UCLA running back Zach Charbonnet. I don't hate the pick. I don't love the pick. It is what it is. If Charbonnet landed with a good team in need of a running back (looking at you, Buffalo, or Philadelphia), I could see his stock skyrocket. Had I not been using the ADP to make the picks, I probably would have taken Jalin Hyatt, as he seems to be gaining steam.

“Truthfully, I’m already falling out of love with the famed 2023 class”. I’m sorry, how long has this site been hyping this class?
