An Early 2025 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

The 2024 NFL Draft is over, and many dynasty leagues are having their rookie drafts as we speak. This is the perfect time to look ahead to 2025 and see what kind of prospects will be waiting for us a year from now. Knowing what players will be available in the future is an important part of constructing your dynasty roster. The 2024 class is looking like it might be an all-time great, what does the 2025 class have in store for us?

Before we dive into the first-round mock draft, I want to take some time to discuss the class as a whole. The biggest difference between the 2024 class and the 2025 class is the quarterback position. A year ago this time, we knew Caleb Williams and Drake Maye were going to be top-five NFL draft picks, JJ McCarthy was a highly regarded prospect, and Bo Nix and Michael Penix were excellent out west but had serious warts on their prospect profile. While some of those players rose up boards, and Jayden Daniels came out of nowhere, there was still an idea of certainty at the top of the position.

The same cannot be said about the QBs in 2025. There’s a group of three or four QBs who are in play to be the first signal-caller selected next Spring, but I don’t think any of them are good enough to go first overall. Instead, the 2025 class has a few elite pass catchers at the very top and about a dozen NFL-caliber running backs that will hear their name called in the first four rounds of April’s draft.

1.01 - Luther Burden, WR Missouri

Even in a superflex format, the current 1.01 right now is pretty easy; it’s Burden. A former five-star recruit and #2 WR in his class, Burden has been as advertised. In 2023, he had 86 receptions for 1,209 yards and nine touchdowns. He finished third in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and seventh in yards per route run at 3.29.

He has everything you want in a wide receiver. He’s sure-handed, fast, and gains yards after the catch. I’d be shocked if he isn’t the first WR selected in next year’s draft and has an outside chance of going #1 overall depending on the team.

1.02 - Tetairoa McMillan, WR Arizona
