NCAA Football: Michigan State at Ohio State

In our first Superflex mock draft since the NFL Draft, I wanted to see when the rookie quarterbacks would be selected. And I was surprised that they weren't drafted sooner.

Caleb Williams lasted until the first pick of Round 4, and he was the 15th quarterback off the board. Jayden Daniels went two picks later, and both rookies should prove to be incredible value.

I would have drafted both ahead of Brock Purdy, Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence, who all went in Round 3. While those guys might be safer since they are proven commodities, I like the upside of Williams and Daniels more.

J.J. McCarthy lasted until Round 8, and he was the 24th quarterback drafted. Drake Maye went in Round 11 as QB30, and Bo Nix was QB32 in Round 12. All three are solid value picks, and McCarthy could be special if he excels in Minnesota in his rookie campaign.

In this mock draft, we only had one manager go QB-QB to start his team, which was Dave Richard from the No. 1 overall spot with Patrick Mahomes and Jordan Love. Dave didn't draft a third quarterback, and he built a solid roster.

He has Saquon Barkley, Zack Moss, Trey Benson, Blake Corum and Jerome Ford at running back. Dave's receivers are Drake London, Davante Adams, DK Metcalf, Amari Cooper, Malachi Corley and Ja'Lynn Polk. Evan Engram is the tight end, and this should be a playoff team if Mahomes and Love perform as expected, barring an injury to either quarterback.

Thomas Shafer was the last manager to draft a quarterback, with McCarthy in Round 8, and Thomas also selected Derek Carr (Round 9), Daniel Jones (Round 10) and Maye. Thomas is hoping that group produces two quality quarterbacks, and the rest of his roster is loaded, especially at receiver.

Thomas has Christian McCaffrey, De'Von Achane, Tyrone Tracy Jr., Keaton Mitchell and Tyler Allgeier at running back. Puka Nacua, Mike Evans, Nico Collins, Stefon Diggs and Malik Nabers are the receivers, and David Njoku is the tight end. If you like waiting for a quarterback, this is a good blueprint to follow, and this team should be very competitive.

I started my team from No. 2 overall with Jalen Hurts, and I drafted three other quarterbacks in Matthew Stafford (Round 5), Will Levis (Round 8) and Sam Darnold (Round 15). This is my favorite strategy in a Superflex league to select one standout quarterback early like Hurts, a safe No. 2 option like Stafford and then at least one quarterback with upside like Levis. Darnold was a flier in case he starts for the Vikings early in the season.

I'm excited about the rest of my roster with Jonathan Taylor, James Conner, Tyjae Spears and Zach Charbonnet at running back, along with Marvin Harrison Jr., Chris Olave, George Pickens, Brian Thomas Jr., Jahan Dotson and Roman Wilson at receiver. Dalton Kincaid is my tight end.

I got several of my favorite breakout candidates (Harrison, Olave, Pickens and Kincaid) and sleepers (Levis, Thomas and Dotson), and we'll see how this roster performs this season. But as far as the quarterbacks, I like this strategy the best in a Superflex league.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We also award one point for every reception. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE) and Superflex (QB/RB/WR/TE) with six reserves for a 15-round draft.
