2015 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds




Round 5


Posted By Jesse Lucas Last Updated: April 21, 2015.


  1. Minnesota Vikings: Dezmin Lewis, WR, Central Arkansas

    Dezmin Lewis is the top receiver left. He has good size and adding him allows Mike Wallace to move to the slot where he once dominated in Pittsburgh.


  2. Tennessee Titans: Andy Gallik, C, Boston College

    Brian Schwenke has yet to play a full 16 game season. Time for the Titans to draft a center for depth that can take Schwenke's job if he doesn't show the durability he had coming out of California.


  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Auburn

    Cameron Artis-Payne is no Tre Mason. He's better than any pedestrian running back currently in the Jaguars' backfield.


  4. Oakland Raiders: Adrian Amos, S, Penn State

    Adrian Amos has the versatility to play either safety spot at strong safety or free safety. Luckily for Amos Oakland is looking to upgrade both safety positions.



  5. Washington Redskins: Rob Havenstein, OT, Wisconsin

    Washington needs a new starter at offensive tackle. At the same time I think they go defense first and spend a late round pick on Rob Havenstein.


  6. Chicago Bears: Doran Grant, S, Ohio State

    Chicago needs more depth on the secondary. Grant can play cornerback, strong safety, or free safety and provides that depth. Tim Jennings is undersized and can hold the #1 field corner role for now. Kyle Fuller played well enough to get promoted from nickel corner to the boundary. Now a new nickel corner that provides some depth on this secondary that also has the versatility to play safety is needed. Don't forget that Chicago needs to upgrade the safety position as well.


  7. Denver Broncos: Zach Vigil, MLB, Utah State

    Zach Vigil is one of the better 3-4 middle linebackers. Denver takes him and finally addresses middle linebacker in the fifth round.


  8. New York Giants: Max Valles, OLB, Virginia

    Max Valles played 4-3 left end at Virginia. Valles did a better job sacking the quarterback than Eli Harold. He's undersized for a defensive end and projects as an outside linebacker in the NFL. The Giants need to make an upgrade at 4-3 left outside linebacker and Valles makes a lot of sense.



  9. Philadelphia Eagles: Corey Crawford, OLB, Clemson

    Corey Crawford will be a day 3 pick. Some believe he's a left end while others project him as a left outisde linebacker. Either way, he'd be a backup on the Eagles.


  10. Atlanta Falcons: MyCole Pruitt, TE, Southern Illinois

    Atlanta has needed a tight end ever since Tony Gonzalez left. MyCole Pruitt seems like a good option at this point.


  11. Cleveland Browns: Blake Simms, QB, Alabama

    Blake Simms is not qualified to start. Still I wonder if he's an upgrade over Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel because the Browns' quarterback situation is that awful.


  12. New Orleans Saints: Casey Pierce, TE, Kent State

    The New Orleans Saints need another tight end. Sure we gave them Maxx Williams in round 1, but when the Saints won Super Bowl 44 they had two tight ends with Jeremy Shockey and David Thomas back in 2010.



  13. Miami Dolphins: DeShazor Everett, CB, Texas A&M

    I have yet to give the Dolphins a cornerback to replace Cortland Finnegan. I might use these next two picks the Dolphins have to give them two corners at the boundary and nickel. Miami takes Everett here to be their boundary cornerback.


  14. Miami Dolphins: Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane

    Miami goes with Lorenzo Doss as a nickel corner here. If I wait till round 5 to give the Dolphins a corner then clearly I have to give them a nickel corner as well to make up for it.


  15. San Francisco 49ers: Max Tuerk, G, USC

    Max Tuerk impressed at USC's Pro Day. Tuerk showed the versatility to play center and right guard in addition to his natural position at left guard. That could influence a team to take him on Day 3.


  16. Houston Texans: Aundrey Walker, G, USC

    Aundrey Walker has the versatility to play any position on the offensive line. My biggest issue with Walker is that he got benched as three freshman replaced him on USC's offensive line. Still, a team like Houston might take Walker for depth in the late rounds.


  17. San Diego Chargers: Tony Lippett, WR, Michigan State

    Tony Lippett has the versatility to play wide receiver or cornerback. Lippett has the tools to play both positions and the Chargers could use a guy like that.


  18. New Orleans Saints: Dillon Day, C, Mississippi State

    The New Orleans Saints can take the best player available. I feel like Max Unger has some durability issues and that adding Dillon Day for depth might help.


  19. Buffalo Bills: Faysal Shafaat, TE, Tennessee Chattanooga

    The Buffalo Bills really need to get another tight end after losing Scott Chandler. I think bringing in Charles Clay from the Dolphins by overpaying him was a really poor choice.


  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M

    Philadelphia finally gets a guard after four rounds of drafting. Jarvis Harrison has the versatility to play left guard, right guard, or right tackle despite weighing 6-8 350 lbs.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Martin Ifedi, DE, Memphis

    Martin Ifedi had 11.5 sacks in 2013. He dealt with injuries during his senior season and showed NFL teams the versatility to play anywhere on the defensive line similar to Mario Edwards of Florida State.


  22. Baltimore Ravens: David Andrews, C, Georgia

    Jeremy Zuttah got a huge contract. I feel like the Ravens can get a backup center for depth with this pick though.


  23. Arizona Cardinals: Xavier Cooper, DE, Washington State

    The Arizona Cardinals need a 3-4 right end now that Darnell Dockett is gone. I think Xavier Cooper would be a good fit at this point.


  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State

    Le'Veon Bell is beginning the season with a three game suspension. DeAngelo Williams isn't the three down back he once was and Dri Archer sucks. Josh Robinson would be a good addiition for Pittsburgh in the fifth round.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford

    Carolina is high on Jaquiski Tartt. I think the Panthers would take him if he fell to round 5.


  26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ryan Russell, DE, Purdue

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could use another defensive end. Ryan Russell provides nice value in the fourth round.


  27. Dallas Cowboys: Anthony Chickillo, DE, Miami FL

    Anthony Chickillo is a good pass rusher. He dominated the East West Shrine Game. Dallas would be wise to give him a shot.


  28. Denver Broncos: Jordan Haden, S, Toldeo

    Jordan Haden is Joe Haden's little brother. He had to sit out for a year after transferring from Florida to Toledo. He's started at cornerback one in 2012, dealt with injuries in 2013, and played at strong safety along with free safety in 2014. I like what Jordan Haden has to offer and he's somebody to consider at this point especially if you lose a free safety like Rahim Moore to Houston in Free Agency.



  29. Indianapolis Colts: LaDarius Gunter, CB, Miami FL

    LaDarius Gunter is one of the better nickel corners in this draft. The Colts could use another corner to compete for the nickel corner spot in the fifth round.


  30. Green Bay Packers: Vince Mayle, WR, Washington State

    The Packers have Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and DaVante Adams for the next three years along wiwth Aaron Rodgers. Vince Mayle would be a good replacement for Jarrett Boykin, who signed with the Panthers after being the Packers #4 receiver.


  31. Seattle Seahawks: Trent Brown, G, Florida

    Trent Brown got an invite to the Senior Bowl. Brown showed the versatiltiy to play anywhere on the offensive line.


  32. Detroit Lions: Tyler Moore, G, Florida

    Tyler Moore declared for the draft as a junior. Moore only knows how to play right guard, but he could still be a good depth player behind Larry Walford.



  33. Carolina Panthers: Kyle Christy, P, Florida

    Kyle Christy is the first punter drafted. Carolina gets a punter here.


  34. Seattle Seahawks: Javorious Allen, RB, USC

    Marshawn Lynch attended California. Seattle drafts another former USC Trojan who can compete with Robert Turbin for the backup running back job since Turbin is in a contract year.


  35. Baltimore Ravens: Mario Alford, WR, West Virginia

    The Ravens get their slot receiver here. After drafting Steve Smith's successor in Jaelen Strong, now you add the guy who replaces Torrey Smith once Smith retires in Mario Alford. For now Alford starts inside in the slot.


  36. Kansas City Chiefs: Cody Riggs, CB, Notre Dame

    Kansas City could use a nickel corner. Cody Riggs would be a nice pickup on Day 3 for a team that needs a nickel corner.


  37. Kansas City Chiefs: E.J. Bibbs, TE, Iowa State

    E.J. Bibbs reminds me of Vernon Davis. I know you got Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano, but Bibbs would be an awesome third string tight end who could eventually surpass Fasano. Over time Bibbs would compliment Kelce in Kansas City. Kelce has had some durability issues dating back to Cincinnati as well which is why Bibbs would thrive in Kansas City after having 8 receiving touchdowns in 2014.


  38. Houston Texans: Henry Coley, MLB, Virginia

    Houston adds another middle linebacker for depth. Henry Coley did a great job reading Brett Hundley's body language in the opener against UCLA. He'd be a good depth player at middle linebacker for the Texans.


  39. Baltimore Ravens: Clayton Geathers, S, Central Florida

    The Baltimore Ravens need more depth at safety. Clayton Geathers out of Central Florida is the top safety available.
