Introduction 

Hit rates in the second round of rookie drafts drop drastically when talking dynasty.  This class is no different, there are no sure fire starters outside of some slot guys and potential QB’s.  The RB’s are all controversial and no one really knows how they will fit into an NFL team until we know their opportunity.

In round 2, we see the slot WR come off the board and two surprises on opposite ends of the spectrum, a reach in Kyle Trask at 2.11 and a potential stud WR1 in Tylan Wallace at 2.12.  Be sure to listen into our podcast (The Rookie Fever Forecast | Podcast) to hear our main conversations around our picks.

2.01 – Mac Jones, QB, Alabama Crimson Tide

I got lucky again here, Mac Jones is my QB3 at this point in time. He may not have the sex appeal but he had an incredible year without much attention. He may not have the konami upside but he is bringing the sexy back to being a pocket passer.

2.02 – Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss Rebels (Brad Stickler @FFBourbonDude)

Look this guy was second in yardage behind Devonta Smith in a year that he only played 8 games. This dude had one of the best pro days a WR could have, he showed absolutely elite quickness and burst, not to mention he put up 17 reps of 225 at 180 pounds. He will be a primarily slot guy but the guy is tough as nails and showed growth every year.

2.03 – Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina Tarheels

Overshadowed by his teammate Micheal Carter may just be the steal of the draft. Back to back 1,000 plus yard seasons and steady receiving work coupled with tremendous speed and a one cut running style Carter’s game will easily translate to the NFL. Slightly undersized, the path to lead back duties will be difficult but talent and a skill set that fits any scheme Carter is a solid pick here in the early second.

2.04 – Jermar Jefferson, RB, Oregon State Beavers,

A guy who is currently undervalued due to the lack of PAC-12 national profile, and the low amount of games. A running back who has the size to be a workhorse and had a freshman breakout. Jefferson was also on pace for another 1,000 yard season this year putting up 858 yards in six short games. He may lack the pass catching potential but to the right team he will be a diamond in the rough.

2.05 – Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue Boilermakers

I mentioned Elijah Moores ProDay, Rondale Moore’s was better. This dude is a straight up animal in training and on the field. In my eyes the only reason he dropped is because of his production in the past two seasons. When he is on the field, he is one of the most electric players. I’ll take that upside in the middle of the second.

2.06 – Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State Cowboys

Olympic speed and the size required to be an every down back Chubba was the clear pick for me here. Coming off his sophomore season breakout he would have easily gone in the second in last seasons loaded class and that makes him even more enticing. Arguably the last running back with true workhorse capabilities Chubba Hubbard is a great pick midway through the second.

2.07 – Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU Tigers

My WR5 currently, a man who was successful on the field with the counterparts such as: Justin Jefferson and JaMarr Chase. While also missing three games in the 2019 season. He has the prototypical size to be an alpha and has the sneaky profile to reach a very high upside.

2.08 – Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis Tigers

(Brad Stickler @FFBourbonDude)


Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 12.58.30 PM.pngScreen Shot 2021-04-14 at 12.58.30 PM.png

In the back of the second I am looking for upside and opportunity. Kenneth Gainwell promotes both of those. With his skillset he garners immediate playing time as a change of pace back and pass catcher. He is dynamic with the ball in his hands and makes people look silly in the open field.

2.09 – Seth Williams, WR, Auburn Tigers

(Eric Burkholder @EricBurkholder6)

Requisite size and a knack for winning contested catches Seth Williams should earn his way into starting lineups sooner rather than later. Lack of a true breakout season is concerning but can be contributed to horrible QB play and this late in the draft Williams makes for an excellent flier.

2.10 – Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina Tar Heels (Britt Sanders @TheFFSandman)


Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 12.59.57 PM.pngScreen Shot 2021-04-14 at 12.59.57 PM.png

A downfield burner, Dyami is more than a catch and fall receiver looking to do damage on the ground with the ball in his hands. He has also put up two 1,000 yard years.

2.11 – Kyle Trask, QB, Florida Gators

(Brad Stickler @FFBourbonDude)

My first reach of the draft. It feels good though. Getting a guy who came in relief of Felipe Franks after week 3 in 2019 and was able to take the reigns shows me he has the grit to take a job not to mention he averaged 275 ypg, 2.5 TD’s, and .5 interceptions per game. Pretty solid showing for a relief. So how did he follow it up? A heisman type season, 4283/43/8. He has some traits that people will knock, like his mobility. Guess what QB’s don’t need to be mobile, they need to be smart. I think his 2nd round draft capital will help him in landing with a team that has solid pieces around him.

2.12 – Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State Cowboys

(Eric Burkholder @EricBurkholder6)

A sophomore breakout followed by two solid years of production make Tylan Wallace an intriguing option especially this late in this mock draft. However; it’s his ability to win against man coverage that really stands out to me and will definitely translate to the NFL game as there are few true lock down corners. With the safety undoubtedly shading the “better” option on any team that drafts Tylan, Wallace could be in for an excellent rookie campaign.
