Here is a sneak peek of their FFHH Mock Draft analysis:
From Kyle Dvorchak (picking at No. 6)
In this case, I didn’t have a strong preference between Travis Kelce and Cooper Kupp, so I went with the player not dealing with an (admittedly minor) injury. The draft board then handed me an easy path to 2023’s RB1 overall in Tony Pollard, so that pick was a layup.
From Denny Carter (picking at No. 11)
I went with a typical Zero RB approach, grabbing four wideouts I believe should be top-15 fantasy options. Getting Diontae Johnson as my WR5 was not the plan, but such a consistent target magnet could end up being my second best receiver behind CeeDee Lamb or Garrett Wilson.
From Lawrence Jackson (picking at No. 3)
I want to leave a lot of my drafts with one of Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle. Drafting from the third spot means Waddle won’t get back to me so I went Hill here. Christian McCaffrey was available, but for this draft I decided to pass on that.
From Patrick Daugherty (picking at No. 8)
Saddled with the 1.8 pick, I decided to go all in on upside with Bijan Robinson in the first, not that it was a reach. I was relieved Jaylen Waddle’s locked in target share fell to me in Round 2.
