Jumbo’s 2014 Dynasty Rookie Watch List

evaNSI know we are just in the meat of the 2013 season, but it is never too early to be looking at the talent that will be hitting dynasty leagues next year.  This class is filled with solid talent that can help your dynasty team win right away.  Here are my current positional rankings as of today.  These rankings are fluid and will changes often, but these are the top 36 guys I’m watching.

mariotaThe upcoming NFL offseason is going to bring us at least 10 teams looking to make a change with their QB and this draft has the most talent in it since the famed class of 1983.  Mariota and Bridgewater are the class of this draft’s QBs.  Great arms, great leaders and they both can use their legs to get out of trouble.  That is good because they will be in plenty of trouble behind the O-lines in Jax or Tampa.  Hundley, Carr and Mettenberger are the next best on the board, but Manziel has a real chance of going before them to the Raiders or Texans.  The Texans job looks to be the best for 2014, with the Cardinals job close behind.  The Browns job could be a solid fantasy spot with the right guy in the huddle.  Mettenberger could be the guy they give the reigns to.

sammyWatkins and Lee are the most pro ready receivers in this class, but Mike Evans is the one I want.  Evans is big and strong, and ALWAYS wins at the catch point.  He will dominate lining up at WR or TE.  The 2 LSU guys are quickly rising up boards and be on the lookout for Brandon Coleman.

Melvin Gordon, P.J. SmithWhile RBs don’t go early in the NFL draft anymore, they are a top priority in fantasy land.  Gordon has to improve his pass protection, but when he does… Watch Out!  Seastrunk and Sankey are going to be major weapons on the NFL level.  I really like James Wilder now and his stock just keeps rising.  Damien Williams will pass a number of guys if he works out well.

NCAA Football: Miami at North CarolinaEric Ebron has been the best player on the field in every game UNC has played this year and should be the first TE taken in this draft.  He has the talent to be a top 5 rookie pick as well.  Lyerla is talented, but teams tend to shy away from dropouts and coke arrests.

I left the small school guys out and my sleepers.  Those are for my 4th and 5th round pick, not yours.
