    With the '16 NFL Draft concluded, the Yahoo fantasy crew decided to gauge how the new rookie crop might be able to positively impact fantasy football this season.

    Yahoos Scott Pianowski, Liz Loza, Dalton Del Don, Andy Behrens, Brad Evans and myself convened for a quick five-round, rookie-only mock draft, with the only requirement being to draft the players based on expected fantasy production for the upcoming season.
