Our Staff’s Dynasty Superflex Draft From Matt Miller’s NFL Mock Draft

Earlier today, Matt Miller, over at ESPN put out his latest mock draft which had every pick he expects in the first two rounds. We took Matt’s mock and decided to do a 12 team superflex draft based off of where these players landed and their output for the 2024 season. All and all there were twenty-three potentially fantasy relevant players.

Here’s a breakdown of the players available to select, what team Matt Miller mocked them to and at what pick.

Matt Miller’s Round 1

1.01 CHI – Caleb Williams, QB, USC
1.02 WAS – Drake Maye, QB, UNC
1.03 NE – Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU
1.04 ARI – Marvin Harrison, WR, OSU
1.05 LAC – Malik Nabers, WR, LSU
1.06 NYG – Rome Odunze, WR, Wash.
1.12 DEN – Bo Nix, QB, Oregon
1.13 LV – JJ McCarthy, QB, Mich.
1.14 NO – Brock Bowers, TE, UGA
1.18 CIN – Brian Thomas, WR, LSU
1.24 DAL – Keon Coleman, WR, FSU
1.32 KC – Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Round 2

2.01 CAR – Ladd McConkey, WR, UGA
2.06 TEN – Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas
2.10 MIN – Michael Penix, QB, Wash.
2.11 ATL – Devontez Walker, WR, UNC
2.12 LV – Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon
2.13 NO – Xavier Legette, WR, S. Car.
2.14 IND – Malachi Corley, WR, WKU
2.16 JAX – Roman Wilson, WR, Mich.
2.17 CIN – Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas
2.26 GB – Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas
2.28 BUF – Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Wash.

And here’s how it all played out as we went through. It ended up being Max, Zach (Hiduk) and Matt working through this and we felt we should give you a little insight into each of our picks and why we took the player we did. Without having a team you are drafting for positional needs are essentially negated and top performance is the main driver for each selection.

1.01 – Caleb Williams, QB, CHI
“I have some concerns about willingness to take the play as it’s drawn up, but he’s the 1.01 in the NFL draft for a reason. Take the talent and hope for the best.” -Zach

1.02 – Marvin Harrison, WR, ARI
“MHJ is a player you can build your WR room around. NFL ready and will be Murray’s #1 target from Day 1.” -Max

1.03 – Jayden Daniels, QB, NE
“Don’t love the landing spot in New England but with his athleticism and ability to make some plays out of the pocket, I think he’s more than capable putting up QB2 fantasy numbers.” -Matt

1.04 – Malik Nabers, WR, LAC
“Talent and opportunity. Nabers lands in an excellent spot with the prospect of being the only relevant WR there after this year. QJ doesn’t scare me.” -Zach

1.05 – Drake Maye, QB, WAS
“Last of the top-5 tier, this pick was a no brainer. Good pairing with Washington’s new OC Kingsbury.” -Max

1.06 – Brock Bowers, TE, NO
“Maybe all of last year’s rookie TE hype is still fresh but I like Bowers and I think if he does land in New Orleans it’s a great fit at a spot of need. Juwan Johnson has flashed in the past but isn’t consistent and Taysom Hill will be 34 when the season starts.” -Matt

1.07 – Rome Odunze, WR, NYG
“Big. Strong. Fast. Makes 50/50 balls, 70/30 balls. Nothing not to like other than playing with Daniel Jones, which probably doesn’t last much longer.” -Zach

1.08 – Bo Nix, QB, DEN
“Not a huge Bo Nix fan but with Wilson expected to be released, hard to pass up a starting QB at Pick 8. Nix could thrive in Payton’s offensive system.” -Max

1.09 – JJ McCarthy, QB, LV
“This pick was purely about the fact I think Las Vegas could be putrid with play calling and McCarthy will have to use his legs more than anyone expected.” -Matt

1.10 – Brian Thomas, WR, CIN
“Tee Higgins will likely be in CIN this year by my estimation, but after that it’s anyone’s guess. With Boyd being gone and having Burrow as QB, the upside is obvious particularly in 2025.” -Zach

1.11 – Xavier Worthy, WR, KC
“Deemed one of the fastest players in this years draft, do the Chiefs finally get a Tyreek Hill replacement? If the Chiefs spend early draft capital ona WR, look for them to MVS $2M.” -Max

1.12 – Michael Penix, QB, MIN
“How can you not love Penix landing in Minnesota? And why the hell is he still on the board here? I think the rest of my peers forget that he’d be throwing to Jefferson, Addison, Osborn and Hockenson. Mark it now, this is the steal of this draft.” -Matt

2.01 – Roman Wilson, WR, JAX
“Fast and gets open. Doesn’t waste his opportunities. Senior Bowl was big for him, and I bet the combine juices his draft stock even more.” -Zach

2.02 – Ladd McConkey, WR, CAR
“Had a great Senior Bowl and is starting to move up draft boards. As one of the best route runners in this class, should immediately slide in next to Thielen.” -Max

2.03 – Devontez Walker, WR, ATL
“I have to imagine Pitts is going to have a better year, call it a resurgence, or at least a chance for one. However Atlanta is underrated as a roster and while I think Drake London is a solid WR, I think that Tez can come in and make life a lot easier for both him and Pitts. He’s going to make defenses have to respect both sides of the field (and the middle, thanks Pitts) which is something that opposing defenses haven’t had to do for a while in Atlanta.” -Matt

2.04 – Malachi Corley, WR, IND
“Indy is a spot where I’d be worried about other WRs. Corley can make his own yards and be used in a variety of ways. Great spot and scheme for this guy.” -Zach

2.05 – Keon Coleman, WR, DAL
“I’ll catch the falling knife – a WR with 1st Round draft capital is a steal in mid-2nd. Decent landing spot for Coleman as I think he will excel best as a team’s WR2.” -Max

2.06 – Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, BUF
“I took this pick with the hope that Diggs decides this offseason that he is complete sick of freezing his ass off every year and looks to go somewhere warmer as he’ll be 31 just after the season starts. The only receiver on the current roster I see with a bright future is Shakir and he plays a completely different role than Polk.” -Matt

2.07 – Troy Franklin, WR, LV
“I’ll take the upside at this point in the draft. If JJ McCarthy surprises us, we could have a hidden gem here in a year or two.” -Zach

2.08 – Jonathon Brooks, RB, GB
“First RB off the board. Not the best landing spot for day 1 production but shouldn’t take to long to get the starting RB job in a good offense with playmakers at every position” -Max

2.09 – Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, CIN
“Sanders comes onto a Cincinnati team that could very well be down it’s second and third top receiving options from the year before. I’ll jump in and take a chance on Sanders given the offensive outlook and lack of playmakers.” -Matt

2.10 – Xavier Legette, WR, NO
“There were some concerns that popped up for me at the Senior Bowl, but this could end up being a steal. Derek Carr gets a lot of hate, but he can get WRs the ball consistently, and being a #2 to Olave may fit Legette well. He does have the ability to make strong plays, so he’s absolutely worth the shot.” -Zach

2.11 – Adonai Mitchell, WR, TEN
“Titans are still searching for their future WR1. I do think Callahan will open up the offense some with second year Levis. Not as bad of a landing spot as it seems.” -Max

And that’s a wrap. These mocks will evolve as the offseason goes on but they give some really solid insight into the general pulse of the league and what each team could be looking for in the early rounds.
