Way-Way-Too-Early 2024 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: TreVeyon Henderson, Caleb Williams Highlight a Talented Class

After diving into the loaded 2023 dynasty rookie class, I thought I would take a stab at the 2024 dynasty rookie class that’s also oozing with fantasy playmakers. If you’re looking to retool or rebuild in your dynasty league, 2024 draft picks are much easier to acquire and will only appreciate in value over the next year. So, with all that, here’s a way-way-too-early 2024 dynasty rookie mock draft (that’s bound to change over the next two college football seasons).

This dynasty mock draft is based on a 12-team SuperFlex league.

1.01: RB, TREYVEON HENDERSON (SO, OHIO STATE)

TreVeyon Henderon 2021 Season Highlights

Trust me, I’m not an Ohio State homer like CJay but another Ohio State player is slotted at my 1.01, following in the steps of CJ Stroud. Henderson was the No. 1 RB prospect of the 2021 class and is the consensus RB1 in the devy community ahead of Bijan Robinson and Jahmyr Gibbs. As a true freshman last season, Henderson outproduced Robinson, ranking top-10 in yards per carry.

The rising sophomore burst onto the scene last season showing both receiving and rushing ability out of the backfield. In one of the most electric offenses in college football, Henderson will continue to provide elite-level production and should be a finalist to win the Doak Walker Award this season.

2021 stats: 1,248 rush yds, 15TD, 6.8 avg; 27 rec, 312 rec yds, 4TD

PrizePicks prop: 1,265.5 rushing yards

1.02: QB, CALEB WILLIAMS (SO, USC)

Williams followed head coach Lincoln Riley to the west coast after stealing the Oklahoma QB1 job from Spencer Rattler during the 2021 season. Williams showed immediate Konami code ability, breaking off a 66-yard rushing touchdown in his first game action as a true freshman. Along with his rushing upside, Williams showed phenomenal arm talent and now has one of the best wide receiving rooms in college football with Mario Williams and Jordan Addison. Williams is currently third in Heisman odds for the 2022 season.

2021 stats: 64.5 cmp%, 1,912 yds, 21 TD, 4 INT; 442 rush yds, 6 TD, 5.6 avg

PrizePicks prop: 3190.5 passing yards

1.03: QB, QUINN EWERS (SO, TEXAS)

This was the hardest pick of the entire mock draft. Picking a quarterback that hasn’t taken a meaningful snap in college football was difficult, but Ewers was the first quarterback to be ranked a perfect 1.0000 since Vince Young and was considered a generational talent during his three-year career at Southlake Carroll High School. 

After getting the NIL bag from Ohio State, Ewers is looking to finally bring Texas back to its glory days. With Xavier Worthy at wide receiver and Bijan Robinson in the backfield, Ewers has one of the most talented offenses in college football. This may be the pick I look back on and facepalm about, but I believe Ewers will prove his worth this season and he should be a top-ranked prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft.

1.04: WR, XAVIER WORTHY (SO, TEXAS)

Xavier Worthy did everything you want from a freshman wide receiver last season. With a breakout age of 18, Worthy was the Longhorns’ No. 1 option last season. Worthy broke six freshman receiving records and was awarded true-freshman All-American by Pro Football Focus, and 247 Sports. With Ewers now commanding the Texas offense, Worthy should see a boost in production and continue his dominance over the next two seasons.

2021 stats: 62 rec, 981 rec yds, 12 TD

PrizePicks prop: 1,178.5 receiving yards

1.05: TE, BROCK BOWERS (SO, GEORGIA)

Bowers has me extremely excited for this 2024 class. As a true freshman, Bowers had one of the best seasons a tight end has had in the SEC. Bowers was voted SEC Freshman of the year, won a national championship, was named first-team all-SEC, and added a second-team All-American. Bowers put up ridiculous numbers on a run-first offense, is extremely athletic, and is now being comped as a Kyle Pitts-lite. With two more seasons until draft eligibility, Bowers is positioning himself to be the next tight end selected in the top 10 of the NFL draft.

2021 stats: 56 rec, 882 rec yds, 13 TD

PrizePicks prop: 814.5 receiving yards (HAMMER!!!!)

1.06: RB, BRAELON ALLEN (SO, WISCONSIN)

Another downhill runner from Wisconsin? Sign me up. At 6’2″ and 238 pounds, Allen has a great frame to be an every-down back in the NFL. During his freshman season, Allen provided elite production with the ball in his hands. Scouts label Allen as a violent, hard-hitting runner with a massive frame. Wisconsin has produced three NFL RB1s in the past decade and if he’s put in the right spot, Allen could be the fourth. If Allen can further develop his pass-catching skills, the sky is the limit for this prospect.

2021 stats: 1,268 rush yds, 12TD, 6.8 avg; 8 rec, 39 rec yds

PrizePicks prop: 1,328.5 rushing yards

1.07: WR, MARIO WILLIAMS (SO, USC)

Similar to Caleb Williams, Mario Williams decided to transfer to USC with Lincoln Riley this fall. Williams will be behind Jordan Addison on the target totem pole this year, but he will be a great second option for the Trojans. During his freshman season at Oklahoma, Williams played second fiddle to Marvin Mims but flashed promise when on the field. Williams was the No. 4 wide receiver in the 2021 class and the rapport with his quarterback should only improve.

2021 stats: 35 rec, 380 rec yds, 4 TD

1.08: WR, MARVIN HARRISON JR. (SO, OHIO STATE)

The son of one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play the game, Harrison Jr. was buried behind some of the best receivers in college football last season. Harrison has it all. He has an NFL-ready frame, precise route-running, terrific ball skills, and the elite speed to match. During the Rose Bowl, Harrison Jr. broke out with three touchdowns against Utah. With one more season with CJ Stroud and another to further develop, he has the potential to be the WR1 of this class.

2021 stats: 11 rec, 139 rec yds, 3TD

1.09: RB, WILL SHIPLEY (SO, CLEMSON)

I worry about Shipley as an NFL prospect but after one season at Clemson, he showed the ability to perform at the next level. With Clemson’s quarterback situation up in the air, the Tigers will have to lean on Shipley and company to perform at a high level. Shipley needs to fill out his frame a bit more, but the back has great vision and speed to break off long runs. If the Tigers begin to use Shipley in the receiving game, his stock will continue to rise.

2021 stats: 739 rush yds, 11TD, 5.0 avg; 16 rec, 116 rec yds

1.10: WR, EMEKA EGBUKA (SO, OHIO STATE)

Ohio State just saw two wide receivers picked in the first round of the NFL draft with Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave and it may be a possibility again in 2024. The Buckeyes still have a loaded receiving room with Smith-Njigba, Harrison Jr., and former five-star recruit Julian Fleming, meaning the competition for Stroud’s targets will be fierce. As a true freshman, Egbuka was a great returner and in limited action, he averaged 21.2 yards per reception. The No. 1 WR in the 2021 class should be a first-round pick in 2024 rookie drafts.

2021 stats: 9 rec, 191 rec yds

1.11: RB, RAHEIM SANDERS (SO, ARKANSAS)

As one of my favorite devy guys said above, Sanders has the ability to be the next Deebo Samuel. In high school, Sanders played both wide receiver and running back and was extremely explosive. Sanders has the prototypical body for an NFL running back at 6’2″ and 225 pounds and has the ability to be a three-down back at the next level.

In his freshman season, he showed the ability to break big runs and get by defenders on the second level. Sanders needs to improve his receiving production a bit more over the next two seasons in Fayetteville to hit his overall RB2 ceiling.

2021 stats: 578 rush yds, 5TD, 5.1 avg; 11 rec, 109 rec yds 1 TD

1.12: WR, JA’COREY BROOKS (SO, ALABAMA)

Ja’Corey Brooks has a frame (6’3″, 190 lbs) that’s ready to be filled out for the NFL. Buried behind John Metchie III and Jameson Williams, Brooks rarely saw the field as a freshman. But during his limited action, Brooks was able to make big plays for the Crimson Tide down the stretch when his name was called. The sophomore will most likely be Bryce Young’s No. 1 option after JoJo Earle suffered a foot fracture during the offseason. With the frame, talent, and available targets, Brooks is poised for a major breakout sophomore season.

2021 stats: 15 rec, 192 rec yds, 2 TD

KEEP AN EYE ON:

  • Donovan Edwards (RB, Michigan)
  • Jaxson Dart (QB, Ole Miss)
  • Tyler Buchner (QB, Notre Dame)
  • Troy Franklin (WR, Oregon)
  • Michael Trigg (TE, Ole Miss)
  • Agiye Hall (WR, Texas)
  • JoJo Earle (WR, Alabama)
  • Camar Wheaton (RB, SMU)
