Way-Too-Early 2025 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft (SuperFlex): Shedeur Sanders, Luther Burden, Tetairoa McMillan Highlight the Fantasy Class

It's never too early to dive into 2025.

The 2023 college football season is now behind us, with maize and blue confetti dropping for the first time since 1998. Our 2024 Dynasty Rookie Rankings & SuperFlex Big Board and 2024 RSJ Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft (SuperFlex) are live, and all signs point to a legendary fantasy football rookie wide receiver class this season.

Looking ahead, it’s time to stockpile those 2025 rookie draft picks for what could be a special running back class–something we haven’t had in quite some time. It does not currently have a generational prospect, such as Saquon Barkley or Bijan Robinson. But, the eye-popping talent and depth will help rebuild and reload your dynasty running back room.

There are also a couple of high-end receiver prospects, and there will most certainly be a few more that pop up throughout the season. The quarterback class, however, needs some work. Still, a few have the tools to make a leap in their final collegiate season.

Let’s dive into our first and way-too-early 2025 dynasty rookie mock draft for fantasy football.

Note: This mock draft is based on a 12-team SuperFlex dynasty league with Half-PPR settings

2025 DYNASTY ROOKIE MOCK DRAFT (12-TEAM SUPERFLEX)

1.01: SHEDEUR SANDERS, QB, COLORADO

Shedeur Sanders put the country on notice in Week 1 when he throttled TCU on the road in his first game as an FBS quarterback. Colorado started hot but fizzled due to a horrific defense and a pathetic offensive line (52 sacks allowed), which made life very difficult for Sanders. Still, the coach’s kid balled out and appears to have all the tools to be a legitimate NFL quarterback and the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2025 NFL Draft.

With a re-tooled offensive line and the return of many starters on offense, highlighted by Travis Hunter, Sanders should be in line for an encore season in Boulder. Sanders, who stands at 6-foot-2 and 215 lbs, can make all the throws and has enough mobility to get himself out of trouble. Not to mention, he throws a beautiful deep ball and is extremely accurate at all three levels.

With Colorado moving to the Big 12, watching Sanders develop into one of the nation’s top quarterbacks will be fun.

2023 stats: 3,230 yards, 27 TD, 3 INT, 4 ruTD

1.02: LUTHER BURDEN III, WR, MISSOURI

Luther Burden and the Missouri Tigers arrived on the national landscape in 2023. Burden, who put up an impressive 45-375-6 as a true freshman, exploded for over 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns on 86 receptions this past season.

Outside of his stature (5-foot-11, 208 lbs), Burden checks off all the boxes of an elite receiver prospect. He plays bigger than his size in contested situations, can play inside and outside, shows elite ball-tracking skills, is a menace after the catch, can break ankles as a route runner, and was a former five-star recruit.

Burden will look to have an even better junior season and should be the first receiver selected in the 2025 NFL Draft.

2023 stats: 83 rec, 1,183 yds, 8 TD, 14.4 avg

1.03: TREVEYON HENDERSON, RB, OHIO STATE

The No. 1 running back in the 2021 class has had an up-and-down career at Ohio State, so he’s returning to school for his senior season.

TreVeyon Henderson broke out as a true freshman, totaling 1,560 yards and 19 touchdowns. However, he dipped as a sophomore during an injury-plagued season, totaling only 599 total yards and seven touchdowns. Even when healthy, his vision did not appear to be the same as he continuously looked for the big play instead of taking the guaranteed yardage.

Henderson returned to full strength this season and again looked like his old self. He accumulated 1,074 total yards and 11 touchdowns in only nine games and was a monster down the stretch. His vision (mostly) returned as he trusted his blockers and ran more physically between the tackles than ever before.

When healthy, Henderson is electric with the football in his hands. He possesses great elusiveness and can make defenders miss in space. He also has reliable hands in the passing game and can be a three-down back in the league.

Now, Henderson is set to share the Buckeye backfield with All-SEC RB Quinshon Judkins, giving the team the best running back duo in the country. Judkins and Henderson will keep each other fresh for a deep College Football Playoff run as the Buckeyes look to load up for the expanded playoff.

This two-headed monster will be a very interesting 2024 college football season sub-plot as the Buckeyes enter a do-or-die season.

2023 stats: 854 yds, 11 TD, 6.2 avg, 19 rec, 229 reYD (9 games)

1.04: TETAIROA MCMILLAN, WR, ARIZONA

Most thought Tetairoa McMillan, the high-four star receiver in the 2022 class, was crazy when he signed with the Arizona Wildcats. However, he and his high school teammate Noah Fifita quickly turned things around in the desert, leading the school to a 10-3 record in 2023.

Since arriving in Tucson, McMillan has been one of the most productive receivers in college football over the last two seasons, posting 2,104 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns on 129 receptions.

McMillan truly has it all from a fundamental, physical, and athletic standpoint. Only Marvin Harrison Jr and Rome Odunze rival his contested catch abilities, and he’s one of the best separators/ route runners in the country.

With the Wildcats entering the season as a borderline top-15 team with playoff hopes, expect McMillan to become a national name in the Big 12 next season.

2023 stats: 90 rec, 1,402 yds, 10 TD, 15.6 avg

1.05: EVAN STEWART, WR, OREGON (PREVIOUSLY TEXAS A&M)

If there’s a wildcard of this class who could catapult a few spots up or fall completely out of the first-round mock by the next update, it’s Evan Stewart. He was the top commitment in Texas A&M’s legendary 2022 class (mostly all transferred out) and the No. 1 ranked wide receiver, above Burden and McMillan.

After totaling an impressive 649 receiving yards and two scores on 53 receptions as a true freshman, Stewart, along with the rest of the Aggie offense, took a step back. This eventually led to Stewart and a good chunk of his No. 1 recruiting class entering the transfer portal after the season.

Still, Stewart’s upside is tremendous. He was a top track athlete in the state of Texas, running a 10.58 100 and a 21.08 200, while displaying natural receiving skills and YAC ability during his first two seasons at TAMU.

Stewart transferred to Oregon, where he will star in Will Stein’s offense. He landed in the perfect spot alongside QB Dillon Gabriel as the Ducks enter the Big Ten this season with extremely high expectations.

2023 stats: 38 rec, 514 yards, 4 TD, 13.5 avg

1.06: QUINSHON JUDKINS, RB, OHIO STATE (PREVIOUSLY OLE MISS)

Quinshon Judkins’ two-year start to his SEC career was only rivaled by the legendary Herschel Walker, after tallying 2,725 rushing yards and 34 total touchdowns at Ole Miss.

Judkins surprisingly entered the portal and announced his commitment to Ohio State the second the confetti dropped for their arch-rival. Now, Judkins will join Henderson to create the most electric RB duo in college football.

Judkins is a physical specimen who dominates on all three downs. Over his first two seasons, he has 1,800 yards after contact, 154 forced missed tackles, and a dazzling 90.8 PFF grade. He’s a no-nonsense, north-south runner with some wiggle and a ton of physicality. Judkins has proven to be an elite pass-blocker on third down and recorded 37 receptions for 281 yards and three touchdowns.

With or without Henderson, Judkins can boost his draft stock while limiting the wear on his tires in this committee. This will be one of the few times when fantasy managers will enjoy a committee.

“I view it as a good opportunity for real, man. I’m excited that he came here at Ohio State,” Henderson said about Judkins. “I feel like it’s good. When you’re that guy taking a lot of the reps, of course you get tired.”

2023 stats: 1,052 yards, 15 TD, 4.4 avg, 21 rec, 135 reYD, 1 reTD

1.07: CARSON BECK, QB, GEORGIA

The four-star recruit collected two rings while backing up Stetson Bennett before beating out five-star Brock Vandagriff for the 2023 Bulldogs’ QB1 position.

Standing tall at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Beck embodies the archetype of a traditional pocket passer, but he also possesses some sneaky athleticism that allows him to extend plays. Demonstrating continuous improvement throughout the season, Beck concluded his inaugural campaign with nearly 4,000 passing yards and 28 total touchdowns to only six interceptions.

Beck is set to lead one of the most talented teams in the nation next season.

2023 stats: 3,941 yards, 24 TD, 6 INT, 116 ruYD, 4 ruTD

1.08: EMEKA EGBUKA, WR, OHIO STATE

Following a tremendous sophomore season, Emeka Egbuka had a rough junior season, resulting in him returning to the Buckeyes for one more go.

The former 5-star recruit broke out in 2022, finishing with 74 catches, 1,151 yards, and 12 total touchdowns while operating as CJ Stroud’s WR2 behind Marvin Harrison Jr. He also put himself on the map in the 2023 College Football Playoff Semifinal against Georgia, putting up 112 yards and a touchdown on six receptions in a narrow defeat.

However, Egbuka dealt with a nagging ankle injury in 2023 that sidelined him for three games, and when he returned, he did not look like the same player with Kyle McCord targeting him. A mix of injury and up-and-down quarterback play impacted his final output, but he’s a nifty route runner who will be a chain mover and slot maven in the NFL.

With his draft stock taking a hit, he returned to Columbus with high expectations and a new quarterback under center. Let’s hope Egbuka stays healthy and bounces back this season.

2023 stats: 35 rec, 452 yds, 4 TD, 12.9 avg

1.09: OLLIE GORDON, RB, OKLAHOMA STATE

Ollie Gordon was arguably the best running back in the country this year, and he could be the greatest riser on this list once the 2024 season gets rolling.

Gordon led the nation with 1,732 rushing yards and added another 39 receptions for 330 yards to show off his three-down skill set, which should send teams scrambling to draft the Oklahoma State star.

Gordon will return to Stillwater for his junior season, where the 6-foot-1, 211 lb workhorse will look to improve upon his massive sophomore season. His overall athleticism and ceiling are not at Henderson’s level, but he can make an even greater case after next season.

2023 stats: 1,732 yards, 21 TD, 6.1 avg, 39 rec, 330 reYD, 1 reTD

1.10: NICK SINGLETON, RB, PENN STATE

Nick Singleton took a minor step back from his elite true freshman season when he put up 1,061 yards and 13 total touchdowns. However, the offense as a whole took a step back in 2023 with a young quarterback under center.

Singleton has every quality of a top-tier running back prospect: size (6 feet, 226 lbs), speed, early breakout age, and a three-down skill set. He re-wrote the Penn State freshman record book with 12 rushing touchdowns and joined Saquon Barkley and DJ Dozier as the only PSU true freshmen to surpass 1,000 rushing yards.

With Penn State hiring Andy Kotelnicki from Kansas, expect a big final season from Singleton. Kotelnicki helped boost the Jayhawks’ run game, which should only help Singleton and the Penn State offense.

As evidenced by this mock, the running back class is loaded, and Singleton has a chance to be the best of the bunch if he returns to his freshman season form.

2023 stats: 752 yds, 8 TD, 4.4 avg, 26 rec, 308 reYD, 2 reTD

1.11: QUINN EWERS, QB, TEXAS

I debated Quinn Ewers, Drew Allar (Penn State), Jalen Milroe (Alabama), and Conner Weigman (TAMU) for my final quarterback spot. Ultimately, I chose the Texas signal caller.

Admittedly, I can’t quit Quinn. With Quinn Ewers returning to Texas for his redshirt junior season, expect the highest-graded recruit in high school history to take another leap forward in his development.

The consistency is not where it needs to be. However, finally put together a quality season, leading the Longhorns to the College Football Playoff.

Although he isn’t a physical specimen, he has elite natural arm talent to make all the throws. He can drop the ball in a bucket from 50 yards out (as seen above) and throw lasers outside the numbers. Still, he’s wildly inconsistent and has yet to put it all together on a weekly basis. It’s also concerning that he showed his flaws with future first-round picks Adonai Mitchell and Xavier Worthy leading his weapon cabinet.

Let’s track his development during his final season. Hopefully, he won’t make me look like an idiot—which he could. If not, he’ll drop out of the first round of dynasty drafts.

2023 stats: 3,151 yards, 21 TD, 6 INT, 5 ruTD

1.12: ISAIAH BOND, WR, TEXAS (PREVIOUSLY ALABAMA)

The 19-year-old broke out this season with 48 receptions for 668 yards and four scores– highlighted by his season-saving touchdown in the back of the end zone against Auburn.

His straight-line speed is on another level because he’ll likely run in the 4.3s, but he’s a solid prospect who should have high draft capital after transferring to Texas to be Quinn Ewers’ WR1.

Following Nick Saban’s surprise retirement, Bond entered the transfer portal and decided on Texas. He will be able to boost his outlook in Steve Sarkisian’s offense after Xavier Worthy and AD Mitchell departed for the NFL. He should be featured in one of the best offenses in the country next season.

2023 stats: 48 rec, 668 yards, 4 TD, 14.1 avg

WILDCARD: TRAVIS HUNTER, CB/WR, COLORADO

Travis Hunter arrived on the national stage in Week 1 when he put on a two-way show in Colorado’s victory over TCU. However, at 6-foot-1 and a generous 185 lbs, he can’t play receiver and cornerback at a high FBS level for 12-plus games.

In nine games this season, Hunter had 49 receptions for 614 yards and four touchdowns on offense and recorded 31 tackles, three interceptions, and five pass breakups on defense.

Most believe Hunter will play cornerback at the next level, but it would be stupid to cross off his upside at receiver. When Colorado needed to move the chains, Shedeur Sanders constantly targeted Hunter when he was on the field.

His elite athleticism alone could put him in the late-first or second-round conversation in 2025 rookie dynasty drafts.
