Rookie Mock Draft

Rookie Mock Draft

This article is part of our NFL Draft series.

With the 2020 NFL Draft in the books, the RotoWire Draft Coverage crew got together with Liss and I for Monday's Sirius XM show to do a Rookies-only Mock Draft. Our rules required that you draft a quarterback, two RB's, two WR's, a WR-TE, and an additional flex spot. We're operating under the presumption that we already had a set of keepers heading into this draft - i.e. that it was a dynasty league. We also were working under PPR presumptions, and that we would start only one QB in our active lineups, so there was no extra boost to the QBs beyond requiring us to draft one.

Jerry purposefully trolled the Packers by not taking Jordan Love at the end, even though he considered him to be the best remaining quarterback. Otherwise, this was pretty much drafted at face value.

Here are the full results, followed by the team-by-team results.
