Also remember to check out the Fantasy Marksmen’s consensus NFL rookie mock draft for the upcoming 2021 DRAFT!

League settings: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 2 Flex.

12 NFL analysts/content providers, the draft positions are randomly selected.

ROUND 1

1.01-RB Najee Harris (RB)

“Najee Harris is built to be a 3 down, bell cow back in the NFL; at 6’2″ and 230 lbs he bruises his way for extra yards. During his last year at Alabama, he had 251 attempts for 1,466 yards with 26 TDs on the ground and 43 receptions for 425 yards and 4 TD’s through the air. With world class balance and vision, Harris is an absolute baller and currently sits atop my rookie rankings.”

1.02-Kyle Pitts (TE)

“There’s not many times where I see an enigma prospect from a draft class. A guy with so much versatility and upside to showcase at the next level. Simply put, I’m preparing myself to see the generational talent known as Kyle Pitts on Sunday afternoon. Get ready everyone.”

-Commissioner Breeze @mcbreeze11

1.03-Ja’Marr Chase (WR)

“A must top 3 pick falls into my hands. Not even a different WR that won the Heisman will be drafted over the LSU playmaker. It’s not easy being a 19 year old catching 20 touchdowns in the same offense as Justin Jefferson. On the horizon, Chase may likely play with his former LSU QB who was throwing the ball more than any other QB in the league in Cincinnati. If Chase reunites with his beloved QB, Who Dey nation would get their next star WR to replace AJ Green’s shoes.”

1.04-Javonte Williams (RB)

“At 1.04 I selected Javonte Williams (North Carolina RB). Several of these rookies tend to be landing spot dependent right? Not Javonte. Williams is a big broad running back who can explode through tackles, flow through running lanes and get down the field in a hurry. Javonte has everything it takes to be an RB1 right away. Drafting a future every down back at 4th overall makes sense!”

-Chris Robin @DetroitBeastie DFS @TheUndroppables

1.05-DeVonta Smith (WR)

“The whole “weight thing” is a non-issue for DeVonta Smith in my opinion. The dude can BALL. He has everything you want in a receiver: hands, elite separation, fantastic after the catch, plus elite production. He did win the Heisman, Maxwell, and Biletnikoff awards after all. We tend to nitpick about what a player CAN’T do, but let’s worry about what he CAN. Smith can and will at the NFL level.”

1.06-Jaylen Waddle (WR)

“Waddle’s versatile skill set gives me confidence he will be an impact player on any team lucky enough to draft him. His break-neck speed is backed up by a 4.28 40 and an NFL comparison to Tyreek Hill. Drool.”

– Jeremy Maw @J_Maw, @FantasyMarksmen

1.07-Travis Etienne (RB)

“Shockingly (and foolishly) with the 1.07 I selected Travis Etienne, running back from Clemson. The former Tiger is an absolute steal here given the touchdown producer he is. Etienne is an absolute stud–mass amount of speed and tackle breaking ability absolutely elevate him to RB1 potential. Etienne is a terrific back ready for fantasy production today.” –

1.08-Trevor Lawrence (QB)

“I understand the reasoning for wanting to wait for a quarterback in single-quarterback leagues, but Trevor Lawrence is the best prospect we’ve seen come into the league in a long time and the upside of drafting a decade-long QB1 is too tempting to pass up at 1.08. With the top three running backs and receivers off the board along with Kyle Pitts, this seems to be the time to pivot to a quarterback in my opinion. Lawrence is the only quarterback that you can lock in for a starting job pre-NFL draft. Even for a team that is set at quarterback, I like the idea of taking Lawrence for the expected trade value. Over the last few years, we’ve seen Justin Herbert, Kyler Murray, and Patrick Mahomes string together promising rookie campaigns. If Lawrence gets off to a hot start in Jacksonville, the market will quickly pump him up as league managers hope for the next young quarterback to anchor their dynasty rosters. At 6’6” with rushing upside, there isn’t much that needs to be said about Lawrence. He’s the unanimous QB1 in rookie rankings and could pay off as an elite fantasy asset.”

-Dave Kluge @DaveKluge_FF

1.09-Justin Fields (QB)

“Fields has a ton of upside and I think he’ll come into the league with a chip on his shoulder, especially if Mac Jones is taken ahead of him. This is a QB who can sling it downfield and make plays with his legs. He’s the total package.”

1.10-Rashod Bateman (WR)

“Bateman is a 6-2 209lb WR out of Minnesota that has drawn comparisons to the likes of Kennan Allen for his route running and contested catch abilities. The NFL requires players to be at least 3 years clear from high school before being eligible for the NFL draft otherwise its conceivable that he could have opted for the 2020 NFL Draft following a 60/1219/11TD season as a Sophomore. The highlight of his skillset is his route running. He’s received A+ grades across short, medium and deep routes from evaluators. Look for a team like Tennessee at pick #22 to add Bateman as a dynamic playmaker across from AJ Brown if he’s still available.” –

Dave Carey @87_Carey @FantasyMarksmen

1.11-Elijah Moore (WR)

“Electric, high-flying and FAST – Elijah Moore is a stud in the making. Moore averaged THE MOST yards per game AND yards per reception in 2020 (and 12 games, which bigger than most players sample size this year). While he might not be the biggest player, I do like his upside and at this point in the draft I’m going to take the player I like the most. Honorable Mentions: Terrace Marshall, Kenny Gainwell. I leaned WR due to the 3WR starts after I narrowed it down to what position I was drafting, I took my favourite one.”

Julien Barnett @ThePointAfterFF, part of the @TrueNorthFFB podcast network.

1.12-Terrace Marshall Jr. (WR)

“Size. Speed. Production. A likely 1st round pick in the NFL Draft, Marshall checks all the buzz word boxes. He’s 6’3” with sub-4.4 speed, wins in contested catch situations, and has a 19.2 breakout age. Despite recent injury flags, Marshall is the type of player I’m willing to bet on at this point in the draft.”
