Mock drafts are a great way to put your draft strategy to the test before you’re on the clock. Our own Lawrence Jackson Jr. put together a group of analysts for a 12-man Superflex PPR draft, and we will be zeroing in on the first three rounds. The top-tier quarterbacks fly off the board first, though the order of those drafted may surprise you. Who will prioritize skill position players before drafting their signal caller?

With all of that in mind, let’s get into it.

Round 1

1.01 Sam Holt, Fantasy Life - @SamanthaRHolt
Patrick Mahomes, QB

1.02 Lawrence Jackson Jr., NBC Sports - @LordDontLose
Lamar Jackson, QB

1.03 Troy King, Footballguys - @TkingMode
Josh Allen, QB

1.04 LaQuan Jones, NFL Network - @RealDealFantasy
Jalen Hurts, QB

1.05 Matt Harmon, Yahoo - @MattHarmon_BYB
Justin Jefferson, WR

1.06 Adam Ronis, The Messenger - @AdamRonis
Joe Burrow, QB

1.07 Dan Titus, Yahoo - @DanTitus
Ja’Marr Chase, WR

1.08 Bob Harris, Football Diehards - @footballdiehard
Cooper Kupp, WR
(Note: This draft was done prior to Kupp’s recent setback)

1.09 Scott Engel, The Game Day - @ScottTheKing
Justin Fields, QB

1.10 Jake Ciely, The Athletic - @allinkid
Christian McCaffrey, RB

1.11 Connor Rogers, NBC Sports - @ConnorJRogers
Justin Herbert, QB

1.12 Corey Parson, Free Agent - @TheFantasyExec
Austin Ekeler, RB

This first round went about how you’d expect it to with quarterbacks flying off the board. Most drafts in general won’t see Jackson come off the board as the second quarterback, but he’s my QB1 so I’m drafting him everywhere I can. In Superflex drafts like this, it gives drafters picking in the later part of the round to get value on other players. Harmon bites the bullet and gets Jefferson at five, while Engel secures the top running back off the board in McCaffrey.

Round 2

2.01. Parson - Trevor Lawrence, QB
2.02. Rogers - Nick Chubb, RB
2.03. Ciely - Deshaun Watson, QB
2.04. Engel - Saquon Barkley, RB
2.05. Harris - Tua Tagovailoa, QB
2.06. Titus - Tyreek Hill, WR
2.07. Ronis - Travis Kelce, TE
2.08. Harmon - Bijan Robinson, RB
2.09. Jones - Stefon Diggs, WR
2.10. King - A.J. Brown, WR
2.11. Jackson - Jaylen Waddle, WR
2.12. Holt - CeeDee Lamb, WR

A few more quarterbacks go off the board early in round two as after Lawrence, Watson and Tagovailoa you started to creep into “mid” territory. The value Rogers and Engel get on Barkley and Nick Chubb here is great! Speaking of value, while Titus skipped out on QB and RB, he paired Chase and now Hill together as easily the best receiver duo in this draft. A lot of the players you see going at the end of the second round here (Kelce, Robinson, Diggs and Lamb) are usually mid-to-late first round picks in non-Superflex drafts.

Round 3

3.01. Holt - Derrick Henry, RB
3.02. Jackson - Anthony Richardson, QB
3.03. King - Garrett Wilson, WR
3.04. Jones - Chris Olave, WR
3.05. Harmon - Daniel Jones, QB
3.06. Ronis - Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR
3.07. Titus - Aaron Rodgers, QB
3.08. Harris - Kirk Cousins, QB
3.09. Engel - Geno Smith, QB
3.10. Ciely - Davante Adams, WR
3.11. Rogers - Dak Prescott, QB
3.12. Parson - Jared Goff, QB

I did it, I had to do it. Richardson is my QB6 and I felt great about getting him here, there’s no way he would have made it back to me. I felt great being able to pair him with Lamar Jackson. Jones and Cousins go in this round as well, but for me personally I’d be willing to live without either. Ronis and Ciely grabbing St. Brown and Adams were probably the best two picks in this round. Whatever the case, quarterbacks came off the board heavy in this round L’s now they are becoming scarce.
