2017 NFL Mock Draft – Round Five

2017 NFL Mock Draft – FIVE Rounds

Round One (1-20) | Round One (21-32) | Round Two | Round Three | Round Four | Round Five

 

Round Five:

NFL Mock Draft - Cleveland Browns145. Cleveland Browns

Josh Tupou, Defensive Tackle, Colorado

The Browns have added a lot of young pieces this year and last, but could use a run stuffing defensive tackle as a rotational player on a much improved defensive line.

 

NFL Mock Draft - San Francisco 49ers

146. San Francisco 49ers

Brad Kaaya, Quarterback, Miami

The 49ers’ quarterback plans are still up in the air, but they have Hoyer to hold the fort down for a few years. Kaaya has all the tools that Shanahan likes, and could take those years to learn the system and improve his technique.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Chicago Bears

147. Chicago Bears

Channing Stribling, Cornerback, Michigan

Adding a press corner fits the new Bears defensive system they have slowly been putting in.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Jackson Jaguars

148. Jacksonville Jaguars

Cole Hikutini, Tight End, Louisville

The Jaguars have added a lot of pieces in free agency, but they could use a matchup-problem type tight end that can be an outlet for Bortles.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Los Angeles Rams149. Los Angeles Rams

Jarron Jones, Defensive Tackle, Notre Dame

The Rams are changing defensive shcmes, and need more defensive linemen that fit their new scheme.

 

NFL Mock Draft - New York Jets150. New York Jets

De’Veon Smith, Running Back, Michigan

Smith caught the ball much better in the all star games and the Combine than he did in college, so the powerful runner could be a more versatile weapon than expected.

 

NFL Mock Draft - San Diego Chargers

151. Los Angeles Chargers

Nathan Peterman, Quarterback, Pittsburgh

The Chargers finally make the move on a quarterback.  Peterman is smart, experienced, and has played in a pro style system.  He could step in sooner than most quarterbacks taken in this draft, if needed.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Carolina Panthers

152. Carolina Panthers

Carlos Henderson, Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech

Carolina is in a transition, and it will be interesting to see which way they come out of it.  They have been working on fixing their offensive line issues, but still need more weapons for Newton.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals

153. Cincinnati Bengals

Chad Wheeler, Offensive Tackle, USC

The Bengals lost their mainstay on their offensive line in free agency, and continue to rebuild here.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Washington Redskins154. Washington Redskins (from Saints)

Teriyon Gipson, Running Back, New Mexico

Gipson is an offensive weapon, and they need to improve their run game to make their offense more balanced.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Philadelphia Eagles155. Philadelphia Eagles

Ryan Glasgow, Defensive Tackle, Michigan

The front four is critical to the Eagles’ defense, and they need to be able to constantly rotate tackles in and out of the game.  They traded for Jernigan, but want to have a dominant 4 tackle rotation. Glasgow might be one of the more underrated players in the draft.

 

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills156. Buffalo Bills

Montae Nicholson, Strong Safety, Michigan State

The immensely talented Nicholson would have gone much sooner if he would play with more intensity and consistency. 

 

NFL Mock Draft - Arizona Cardinals

157. Arizona Cardinals

Grover Stewart, Defensive Tackle, Albany State

After losing a major piece of their defensive line in free agency, the Cardinals might have found a gem here in Stewart, who impressed during his all-star game against top competition.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Indianapolis Colts

158. Indianapolis Colts

Ashton Lampkin, Cornerback, Oklahoma State

The Colts need to get their defense in line, and they have added some older players to allow younger players that they draft to develop.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Baltimore Ravens

159. Baltimore Ravens

Prescott Line, Fullback, Michigan State

After losing their star fullback in free agency, the Ravens find the most intriguing fullback prospect in the draft. A year in a pro style offense in college will help him adjust quickly to the NFL.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Minnesota Vikings160. Minnesota Vikings

Tyler Orlosky, Center, West Virginia

The Vikings have a talented center, but one who is injury prone. 

 

NFL Mock Draft - San Francisco 49ers161. San Francisco 49ers (from Redskins)

Ben Boulware, Inside Linebacker, Clemson

A relentless linebacker, Boulware could help rebuild the reputation of the 49ers linebackers, which went from possibly the best unit in the game to the worst.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Tampa Bay Buccaneers

162. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Deatrich Wise Jr., Defensive End, Arkansas

The Bucs add a defensive end here, a unit that might become the strength of their team.

 

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills163. Bufallo Bills (from Patriots)

Ben Gedeon, Inside Linebacker, Michigan

The Bills are rebuilding a defense into a 4-3 similar to what the Panthers run.  They need some tough, smart players, and a hard-nosed inside linebacker here.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Tennessee Titans164. Tennessee Titans

David Sharpe, Offensive Guard, Florida

With two exceptional tackles, the Titans need to make sure that the interior of the offensive line stays stout.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions

165. Detroit Lions

James Conner, Running Back, Pitt

Conner is one of the better stories in the draft after beating cancer, but gets lost a bit in a crowded running back class.  The Lions could use a power back to add to their running back core that was decimated by injuries last year.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins166. Miami Dolphins

Brian Allen, Offensive Guard, Michigan State

The Dolphins finally get one of their biggest needs at offensive guard.  Allen is a very experienced, reliable, intelligent guard that has played in a pro system and can step in day one and start for the Dolphins.

 

NFL Mock Draft - New York Giants

167. New York Giants

Aviante Collins, Offensive Tackle, TCU

The Giant’s need more talent on the offensive line, and the unit disappointed last year.  Collins is a sleeper pick that might go much higher, but the Giants would love to have him fall to them here.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Oakland Raiders168. Oakland Raiders

Rasul Douglas, Cornerback, West Virginia

The Raiders addressed their problems with getting to the quarterback early, and will continue to try to improve their defense in other places.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Houston Texans

169. Houston Texans

Vince Biegel, Outside Linebacker, Wisconsin

Outside linebackers are key to the Texans’ stellar defense, and adding a smart, dedicated player to add to the core of excellent linebackers will allow them to keep their defense running on all cylinders. 

 

NFL Mock Draft - Kansas City Chiefs

170. Kansas City Chiefs

Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, DT, USC

The Chiefs grab a monster, 3-4 nose tackle.  They made an addition there in free agency, but here they get their nose tackle of the future.

 

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills171. Buffalo Bills (from Cowboys)

Eric Saubert, Tight End, Drake

A small school phenom, Saubert will add a dimension to the Bills offense they have been missing for years.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Green Bay Packers

172. Green Bay Packers

Jalen Myrick, Cornerback, Minnesota

The ultra-fast Myrick gives the Packers a corner that can matchup with even the speediest of wide receivers.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Pittsburgh Steelers

173. Pittsburgh Steelers

Wayne Gallman, Running Back, Clemson

Gallman falls because of a poor combine, but he is a reliable, productive back.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Atlanta Falcons

174. Atlanta Falcons

Steven Taylor, Outside Linebacker, Houston

The Falcons struck gold last year in the draft at linebacker, and might again here.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Cleveland Browns175. Cleveland Browns (from Patriots)

Josh Harvey-Clemons, Strong Safety, Louisville

A tremendous talent, Harvey-Clemons falls because of character concerns.  A steal if he can keep is nose clean.

 

COMPENSATORY PICKS:

 

NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals176. Cincinnati Bengals

Ricky Seals-Jones, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

After adding an elite talent at wide receiver early, the Bengals still need to add to their wide receiver core after losing much of it in free agency the last few years.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Denver Broncos177. Denver Broncos

Josh Carraway, Outside Linebacker, TCU

The Broncos are revamping their defense, and need players that can get to the quarterback from multiple positions.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins178. Miami Dolphins

Jehu Chesson, Wide Receiver, Michigan

An excellent, YAC guy, Chesson would give another weapon to the creative offensive scheme that needs weapons.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Arizona Cardinals179. Arizona Cardinals

Trent Taylor, Wide Receiver, La Tech

With some aging players, the Cardinals are addressing the imminent retirement of their star wide receiver by replenishing with young talent.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Kansas City Chiefs180. Kansas City Chiefs

Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech

The Chiefs add another wide receiver, trying to become more dynamic on the offensive side of the ball.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Cleveland Browns181. Cleveland Browns

Carroll Phillips, Outside Linebacker, Illinois

More, more, more is what the Browns need… more high football character guys that have non stop motors.  

 

NFL Mock Draft - Green Bay Packers182. Green Bay Packers

Pat Elflein, Center, Ohio State

The Packers lost a lot in regards to their offensive line in free agency, and get a guy here that can play multiple positions across the offensive line.

 

NFL Mock Draft - New England Patriots183. New England Patriots

Daeshon Hall, DE, Texas A&M

In the shadow of Garrett, Hall was a very productive player, and has the versatility to be used in several places with the Pats’ defense.

 

NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins184. Miami Dolphins

Jamaal Williams, Running Back, BYU

With a run game that is thriving, the Dolphins will want to keep their backs fresh.  They can’t afford for their feature back to go down and become one dimensional.
