Matty Kiwoom’s Mock Draft Monday

Welcome to Matty Kiwoom’s Mock Draft Monday. What kind of mocks will I be doing? All kinds. Fantasy baseball, fantasy football, rookie drafts, NFL Mock Drafts and maybe even some fun drafts.

This week is for all the fantasy football team builders that play in dynasty leagues. The Senior Bowl just passed so it is officially draft szn. That means different things to different folks. Many care about who their favorite franchise is going to select. But for me, I care most about my dynasty fantasy franchises and the rookie draft bay bay.

Today’s mock will be the first five selections of a 1 QB rookie draft. I will be making all of the selections. (maybe someone will play with me for the next time).

The Cosmic Cobras select:

(oh yeah I’m making up all the team names as well)

Running Back
Breece Hall
Iowa State

Breece has been a mega producer while toting the rock for the Cyclones. Hall piled up 4,675 yards from scrimmage in his three years in college and 56 total touchdowns. No I did not mistype. Hall found pay dirty more than 50 times as a college athlete. The back had more than 20 receptions all three years. Highlighted by a 36 reception campaign this past year.

The NFL team that selects Hall will likely be confident in him carrying a solid work load. If he tests well at the combines expect to hear the back’s name call in the 2nd round.

The Four Nelsons select:

Wide Reciever
Treylon Burks

Burks is an athletic freak. Six foot three, 232 pounds and super fast. Like his forty time could be top 3 in the class kind of fast. Per PlayerProfiler.com, Burks had a 31.3% target share and a 45.9% college dominator rating. Both metrics place him in the top 10% of college football. The football world watched in awe as the wide out shredded the Alabama defense. Eight receptions for 179 receiving yards and 2 tuddies.

Most mocks have Burks as a first round draft pick and when he lights up the combine he will essentially lock that up. Sending all my positive GM vibes to get Treylon on the Chargers to team up with Turbo Herbert.

The Peaky Pandas select:

Wide Reciever
Garrett Wilson
Ohio State

Wilson gets tremendous separation due to his route running. In the best wide receiver room in college football, Wilson was still able to establish himself with a 1K yard season for the Buckeyes. Garrett Wilson will impress at the combine and should hear his name called in the first round of the NFL Rookie Draft.

Fingers crossed that he does not stay in Ohio and get selected by the Cleveland Browns. But then again a player with Wilson’s skills could prove to shine on any team in the NFL.

Joe Brrrrr’s Bros select

Wide Reciever
Drake London

No two ways about this, London dominated at USC. Before hurting his ankle eight games in, Drizzy Drake already eclipsed 1K receiving yards and found the end zone 7 times. London is a massive target. He is six foot five and 210 pounds. The receiver from Southern Cal looks like the latest version of Mike Evans or Brandon Marshall.

The only real question when it comes to the alpha wide out is that ankle. If London proves that he is healthy during the draft process or at least that he is on the right track, he is a lock for round number one. There is even a buzz that Drake London will be the first wide receiver drafted. Any where but Philly and the fantasy world will rejoice.

Back Street’s Back…Alright selects

Running Back
Isaiah Spiller
Texas A & M

The last player that will be mentioned in this week’s Matty Kiwoom’s Mock Draft Monday maybe the most talented running in the draft class. He’s got the size, six foot one and 225 pounds and he’s got good footwork. Speaking of footwork, he is currently working with the Footwork King and that has the football community pumped. Over 900 rushing yards all 3 years at Texas A & M. Almost 200 receiving yards each of his three college seasons.

If his proves to be faster than expected (NFL GM’s love themselves some 40 yard dash times) than he could very well be the first running back selected. Regardless of landing spot, Spiller should have a quality role and given his ceiling it will be worth the pick in the fantasy football rookie draft.


It is still early in the draft process, but it is never too early to start your fantasy football prep. There will be some very talented players entering the NFL this April. Team builds will ultimately decide who fantasy general manager will pick but at the top of the rookie draft there will be some good ones. I currently possess the second pick in the Golden Pony Fantasy Football Experience and I’m thrilled.

Tune in next week for another installment of Matty Kiwoom’s Mock Draft Monday.
