The 2023 NFL Draft class is full of talent and is one of the most anticipated rookie classes in recent memory. If you’re in a dynasty league, everyone invests in the 2023 draft class, but do you even know who’s in the class? We don’t all watch college football and not everyone is a Devy player. The 2020 and 2021 draft classes have spoiled us with talent, however, the 2022 class remains to be seen. The verdict right now is that it was a very bad year. Hopefully these players can prove us wrong. The bar has been set quite high by the previous two classes and expectations are high for the 2023 class. We’ll take a look! Here is my 2023 rookie ranking.

Dynasty Fantasy Football 2023 Rookie Rankings
CJ Stroud is the best quarterback in my 2023 rookie rankings. This class is deeper at the position than any class in a long time. There could be up to 5 Quarterbacks drafted in the 1st round next year. CJ Stroud is the best guy for me with Bryce Young close behind him. For starters, Stroud is a more developed passer and has a prototypical build. Stroud burst onto the scene last year as a rookie. There were games where he was downright dominant. Stroud threw for 44 touchdowns in 12 games and nearly 4,500 yards. Additionally, Stroud left early in 5 games where the Buckeyes took a big lead. Stroud is expected to be the first overall pick next year and he would have been in the top 2 in this year’s draft. Here is the rest of my top 5 quarterbacks

I worked on studying class ’23 in fashion. Here is what I have for my first ride before the season in SuperFlex. It’ll be fun to see how that changes, and it certainly will. What do you all think? pic.twitter.com/cola2o80j6

The top running back in my 2023 rookie rankings is currently Bijan Robinson. Bijan is already a star with a huge NIL contract with Lamborghini. Bijan is the prototypical size of an NFL Running Back, and his receiving ability is fantastic. Additionally, Robinson is averaging 12 yards per reception and 6.5 yards per carry so far in his college career. Scouts praise Robinson for his vision and patience as a runner. He is also agile and exhibits great elusiveness once he reaches the second level as well. Bijan had 79 tackles in just 195 carries. Robinson would easily be the No. 2 RB in the 2021 class, possibly being the No. 1. Here are the rest of my top 5 running backs.

My number one wide receiver is Jaxson Smith-Njigba, or JSN for short, because he looks to be Ohio State’s next big receiver. His ability to stand out as a wide receiver in a draft filled with 1st-round picks is even more impressive. He’s playing with my best quarterback and is about to build a monster season as a sophomore. His skills to work both inside and outside as a receiver sets him apart. Per PFF College Twitter, Smith-Njigba had a 90.2 rating in 2021. That’s the highest by an Ohio State Wide wide receiver since 2014. While on the same field as 2 future first draft picks round (Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson). JSN is also expected to be a top 10 pick next year and will be one of the top picks in your Dynasty rookie drafts. Here is the rest of the top 5 in my 2023 rookie rankings.

Michael Mayer is my best Tight End in the 2023 NFL Draft class. Mayer is another favorite PFF prospect. “Mayer is the rare Tight End prospect who’s ready for the NFL as a true sophomore” – Mike Renner. Mayer’s ability as a blocker and receiver makes him a projected first-round pick. The 2021 class didn’t have tight ends in the first round, so this will be a welcome change for Dynasty managers. Mayer runs routes like a wide receiver and leaves the line quickly. He is also a willing and powerful blocker in the passing game.
