Mock draft: Where did top WRs, rookies go?


Now that the 2024 NFL draft is over, fantasy football draft season can begin.

The names at the top of our first post-draft mock shouldn’t be a surprise to most based on how last season ended. Last year’s top three in fantasy points per game were also the first three off the board. Will Christian McCaffrey, CeeDee Lamb and Tyreek Hill carry rosters like they did last season?

Our ESPN Fantasy Football analysts and contributors convened to make their picks, and it’s always interesting to see where this year’s rookie class fits in, as well as which faces in new places saw their values increase most.

Caleb Williams went first overall in the actual NFL draft, but he wasn’t even the first rookie quarterback taken in this mock. And while the Arizona Cardinals’ top pick, Marvin Harrison Jr., was expected to be the first rookie selected in this mock, would it surprise you if he was picked before top tight ends Travis Kelce and Sam LaPorta?

This mock draft featured the following participants (in order of first-round selection): Daniel Dopp, Field Yates, Liz Loza, Eric Karabell, Mike Clay, Tyler Fulghum, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Eric Moody, Matt Bowen and Stephania Bell. It is a standard, 10-team league with PPR scoring.
