2016 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds





Round 5


Posted By Tony Mario Last Updated: April 7, 2016.


  1. Tennessee Titans: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU

    The Tennessee Titans go with a cornerback for depth. Rashard Robinson is a great fit in the fifth round.


  2. Cleveland Browns: Shawn Oakman, 3-4 RE, Baylor

    Desmond Bryant plays 3-4 left end in Cleveland. The Browns could use a 3-4 right end and Shawn Oakman is a premium value pick in the fifth round.


  3. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Vigil, 3-4 MLB, Utah State

    San Francisco needs a starting 3-4 middle linebacker. Nick Vigil is the top 3-4 middle linebacker left in the fifth round.


  4. Oakland Raiders: Jihad Ward, DT, Illinois

    Jihad Ward has terrific rip and swim moves on tape. He can line up at 4-3 defensive tackle, 3-4 right end, or 3-4 left end. Ward has the perfect body of a 5-technique player which is where he was inserted during the Senior Bowl, but at Illinois he lined up as a 4-3 defensive tackle and Oakland would use him in the 4-3 for depth at this point.



  5. Denver Broncos: Devon Cajuste, WR, Stanford

    Denver gets a wide receiver for depth. Devon Cajuste is a big target that could help Denver on offense.


  6. San Francisco 49ers: Joe Dahl, LG, Washington State

    Joe Dahl can line up at left guard or right guard. Unlike Joshua Garnett who would start at right guard, Dahl would serve as a backup to Zane Beadles.


  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Briean Boddy-Calhoun, CB, Minnesota

    Jacksonville gets a corner for depth. Briean Boddy-Calhoun is the best player available at this point.


  8. Miami Dolphins: Nick Kwiatkoski, MLB, West Virginia

    The Dolphins draft West Virginia's tackling machine known as Nick Kwiatkoski. This allows Kiko Alonso to move to right outside linebacker.



  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Matt Judon, RE, Grand Valley State

    Tampa Bay has Emmanuel Ogbah and Matt Judon as a backup at 4-3 right end. Then they have Robert Ayers and Jacqueis Smith compete for reps at 4-3 left end. That solidifies their defensive end spot.


  10. New York Giants: Alex McCalister, LOLB, Florida

    New York needs a 4-3 left outside linebacker. Alex McCalister is the best 4-3 left outside linebacker remaining at this point.


  11. Chicago Bears: Kevin Byard, SS, Middle Tennessee State

    The Chicago Bears get a safety for depth. Kevin Byard is the top safety available.


  12. Detroit Lions: Tyler Johnstone, LT, Oregon

    Tyler Johnstone would serve as a good backup left tackle for depth behind Riley Reiff. I feel like he's got the potential to take Reiff's job at left tackle when healthy.



  13. New Orleans Saints: Eric Striker, ROLB, Oklahoma

    New Orleans gets a right outside linebacker for depth. Eric Striker provides incredible value in the fifth round.


  14. Philadelphia Eagles: Josh Forrest, MLB, Kentucky

    Philadelphia gets a middle linebacker for depth. Josh Forrest is the best player available for depth at this point.


  15. Oakland Raiders: Kevon Seymour, CB, USC

    Oakland's gets another cornerback. Kevon Seymour should be able to secure a roster spot at quarter cornerback or on special teams.


  16. Indianapolis Colts: C.J. Prosise, RB, Notre Dame

    Indianapolis gets a starter at running back to compliment Frank Gore. C.J. Prosise provides terrific value in the fifth round.



  17. Buffalo Bills: Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford

    The Buffalo Bills get a backup for Tyrod Taylor. Kevin Hogan looks like he's more physically built than Tyrod Taylor and could take over if Taylor got injured or struggled in 2016.


  18. New York Jets: Thomas Duarte, TE, UCLA

    The New York Jets can get Thomas Duarte here. Duarte is a big slot receiver so he could play tight end as well as wide receiver. Duarte would be a tight end on a Jets team that needs a tight end.



  19. Washington Redskins: Joe Powell, SS, Globe Institute Of Technology

    Washington gets a strong safety. Joe Powell is a good value pick and could start at strong safety. He also plays Arena Football for the Cleveland Gladiators and already got a pick 6 for the Gladiators.


  20. Houston Texans: Jerrell Adams, TE, South Carolina

    Houston needs a tight end. Jerrell Adams is a terrific value pick in the fifth round.


  21. Minnesota Vikings: Brandon Shell, RT, South Carolina

    Minnesota gets an offensive tackle for depth in Brandon Shell. I could see him moving to a backup right guard role similar to Bobby Hart the Florida State right tackle that the Giants drafted as a backup right guard for depth in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft.


  22. Cincinnati Bengals: Tavon Young, CB, Temple

    The Cincinnati Bengals get Tavon Young as a dime cornerback for depth. Young could also play on special teams as a tackler or a return specialist.



  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Ronald Blair, 3-4 RE, Appalachin State

    Ronald Blair was a 4-3 defensive end at Appalachin State. He would probably play 5-technique in Kansas City.


  24. Green Bay Packers: Lloyd Carrington, CB, Arizona State

    The Packers can use this pick on a nickel cornerback for depth. Lloyd Carrington would gel in nicely in Green Bay.


  25. Philadelphia Eagles: Kevin Peterson, CB, Oklahoma State

    Philadelphia drafts another cornerback. Kevin Peterson is a great cornerback for depth at this point.


  26. Kansas City Chiefs: Jordan Lucas, SS, Penn State

    Kansas City drafts Jordan Lucas for depth. Jordan Lucas lined up at field cornerback, boundary cornerback, strong safety, and free safety at Penn State just like Kendall Fuller at Virginia Tech, Vernon Hargreaves at Florida, or Jalen Mills at LSU. Lucas doesn't have the playmkaing his teammate Adrian Amos had when Amos entered the 2015 NFL Draft, but he's more versatile than Amos which is why someone will role the dice with Lucas on the third day of the 2016 NFL Draft.



  27. Houston Texans: Joe Schobert, 3-4 ROLB, Wisconsin

    Joe Schobert can play 3-4 right outside linebacker plus 3-4 left outside linebacker. Schobert does a good job dropping back into coverage and is an edge rusher worth taking a risk on in Day 3 if you run a 3-4 defense. He can also stuff the run as a 4-3 outside linebacker.


  28. Arizona Cardinals: Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas

    Brandon Allen would be a good quarterback to groom behind Carson Palmer. Allen makes a ton of sense in the fifth round.


  29. Carolina Panthers: Cole Toner, RT, Harvard

    Cole Toner would be a good offensive tackle for depth in the fifth round. Toner could go as early as the third round.


  30. Detroit Lions: Michael Jordan, SS, Missouri Western

    The Detroit Lions go with the best player available. The best Division 2 player in 2014 was Ali Marpet. This year that honored belonged to Missouri Western cornerback Michael Jordan who wears the #23 just like the NBA's Greatest of All Time. Jordan was a complete field corner in Division 2, and he's versatile enough to move to strong safety or free safety making him a great prospect for the Lions to add for more depth on the secondary. The Lions lost James Ihedigbo and have Rafael Bush as their starting strong safety. Michael Jordan is a clear upgrade over Bush even if he played Division 2 competition.



  31. Arizona Cardinals: De'Vondre Campbell, 3-4 LOLB, Minnesota

    Arizona gets the 170th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Oakland Raiders signed Arizona Cardinals nose tackle Dan Williams in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period as a 4-3 defensive tackle after Williams became a Free Agent in 2015.


    The Cardinals get a rush linebacker for depth. I'm not sure De'Vondre Campbell fits well in the 3-4, but he can stuff the run effectively.


  32. Cleveland Browns: A.J. Stamps, FS, Kentucky

    Cleveland gets the 171st pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New England Patriots signed Cleveland Browns rush linebacker Jabaal Sheard in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period as defensive end after Sheard became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Cleveland gets a safety. A.J. Stamps has the versatility to line up at both strong safety and free safety.


  33. Seattle Seahawks: Evan Boehm, C, Missouri

    Seattle gets the 172nd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New York Jets signed Seattle Seahawks left guard James Carpenter in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Carpenter became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Patrick Lewis was okay in relief of Max Unger. Evan BOehm has over 40 starts and would provide Lewis competition that he needs.


  34. Cleveland Browns: Rees Odhiambo, LG, Boise State

    Cleveland gets the 173rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Houston Texans signed Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Smith became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Rees Odhiambo makes a ton of sense in the fifth round. He can play as a left guard for depth.



  35. San Francisco 49ers: Daniel Lasco, RB, California

    San Francisco gets the 174th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Tennessee Titans signed San Francisco 49ers cornerback Perrish Cox in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Cox became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Daniel Lasco gives the 49ers a running back for depth. Lasco joins Goff and Lawler in the Bay Area in San Francisco.


  36. San Diego Chargers: Joshua Perry, 3-4 MLB, Ohio State

    San Diego gets the 175th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Chicago Bears signed San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal as a slot receiver in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Royal became a Free Agent in 2015.


    San Diego gets a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth. Joshua Perry would be a good depth player at this point.
