2015 NFL DRAFT

Round Five pick-by-pick analysis

By Jeff Reynolds | NFLDraftScout.com

136. Indianapolis Colts: DT Josh Chapman, Alabama -- Not the ideal 3-4 nose tackle, but he's season there after learning under Nick Saban. Unquestioned toughness, he played most of the 2011 season with a torn ACL and end-of-season surgery dropped him to this stage of the draft.

137. Denver Broncos: DT Mailk Jackson, Tennessee -- Productive USC transfer was praised by coaches for playing like he a championship was on the line for a below-average team.

138. Detroit Lions: LB Tahir Whitehead, Temple -- Overachiever best suited to play over the tight end in a 4-3 and doesn't mind combat with offensive linemen.

139. Minnesota Vikings: CB Robert Blanton, Notre Dame -- The overhaul of the Vikings' secondary continues, and Blanton's UND teammate, first-round Harrison Smith, is similarly steady but not special.

140. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: ILB Najee Goode, West Virginia -- A 244-pound linebacker who played inside and outside in WVU's 3-3 front. He's best in the box and against the run.

141. Washington Redskins: OG Adam Gettis, Iowa -- A potential fit at center or left guard in the zone-blocking scheme.

142. Jacksonville Jaguars: LB Brandon Marshall, Nevada -- Can fit outside and is athletic enough to run with tight ends as a two-down linebacker.

143. Carolina Panthers: CB Josh Norman, Coastal Carolina -- Tall, lean and athletic enough to eventually match up with NFL receivers. Learning curve could be steep and is unproven against elite talent.

144. Buffalo Bills: OT Zebrie Sanders, Florida State -- Quick and athletic, scouts also wondered if he was soft compared to NFL-caliber linemen, and he fell to the middle rounds because of it.

145. Tennessee Titans: TE Taylor Thompson, SMU -- A monster tight end with a 6-6, 265-pound frame, Thompson could help offset the loss of No. 2 tight end Joel Dreessen.

146. Kansas City Chiefs: De'Quan Menzie, Alabama -- A good enough corner to be on the boundary, over the slot or possibly convert to safety if he learns not to be a down-to-down gambler.

147. Buffalo Bills: LB Tank Carder, TCU -- Super-productive tackler could fall anywhere between Larry Izzo-caliber special teams star and Paul Posluszny-level starter. The Bills wouldn't mind another 'Poz' after losing him in free agency to Jacksonville in 2011.

148. Detroit Lions: CB Chris Greenwood, Albion (Michigan) -- DIII cornerback with rare size who held up at the East-West Shrine Game -- where he was coached by former Lions coach Bobby Ross -- and was an All-American and conference defensive MVP.

149. San Diego Chargers: OG Johnnie Troutman, Penn State -- Stable offensive guard from a power-based running offense, which is reflected in marginal effectiveness in the passing game.

150. St. Louis Rams: OT Rokevious Watkins, South Carolina -- Massive man (338 pounds, 6-4, 34 5/8-inch arm length) has played guard, right tackle and left tackle. Might not be sudden enough to mirror NFL pass rushers at left tackle.

151. Arizona Cardinals: OT Senio Kelemete, Washington -- A defensive tackle in 2008 for the Huskies, Kelemete moved to guard and then spent two seasons at left tackle. The Cardinals will find a spot for him quickly -- on the offensive line.

152. Dallas Cowboys: WR Danny Coale, Virginia Tech -- A sticky-fingered zone-buster with enough size to play outside in a pinch. Wily route-runner who finds a way to get open and never stops working.

153. Philadelphia Eagles: OT Dennis Kelly, Purdue -- Kelly casts a large shadow at 6-8, 321, and has a nasty streak that makes him a better fit on the right side, where his height and slow rise out of his stance won't be as easily exposed.

154. Seattle Seahawks: LB Korey Toomer, Idaho -- Did a little bit of everything at Idaho. Had 10.5 tackles for loss and also scored three TDs as short-yardage rusher. He visited 12 teams before the draft, including the Seahawks, who have consistently mined impact talents at LB in the middle rounds.

155. Miami Dolphins: LB Josh Kaddu, Oregon -- An athletic, run-and-chase backer who flies to the ball but average size might be an issue in the NFL.

156. Cincinnati Bengals: CB Shaun Prater, Iowa -- Known as more of an athlete but also surprisingly physical despite more experience playing off of his man than the Bengals' bump scheme demands.

157. Atlanta Falcons: FB Bradie Ewing, Wisconsin -- A pure fullback who can break down and lead outside runs, also has the hands to help in the passing game.

158. Oakland Raiders: DE Jack Crawford, Penn State -- Has the frame to pan out with more experience and pro coaching.

159. Pittsburgh Steelers: RB Chris Rainey, Florida -- Dynamic third-down back and returner brings quickness and elusiveness along with 4.45-second speed.

160. Cleveland Browns: OT Ryan Miller, Colorado -- At 6-7, 320, Miller is considered a tackle at the college level. His pro position figures to be guard, where his slow-footedness can be camouflaged.

161. Houston Texans: K Randol Bullock, Texas A&M -- The Texans land a consistent kicker who set school and career records with 29 field goals in 2011 and 63 in his career.

162. New Orleans Saints: S Corey White, Samford -- Had seven career interceptions with superior run-stopping skills and isn't athletic enough to move to cornerback.

163. Green Bay Packers: LB Terrell Manning, N.C. State -- Had 12 tackles for loss last season and, if he develops physically from his 234-pound frame, could become a pass rusher for the Packers.

164. Atlanta Falcons: DE Jonathan Massaquoi, Troy -- His long arms and huge hands will benefit him as a left defensive end but he'd be best as a rush specialist, where his average power and leverage won't be exploited.

165. San Francisco 49ers: LB Darius Fleming, Notre Dame -- A powerful outside linebacker and good developmental target for the 3-4 defense of the Niners.

166. Cincinnati Bengals: WR Marvin White, California -- Smooth route-runner who varies speeds and understands how to get open.

167. Cincinnati Bengals: FS George Iloka, Boise State -- NFLDraftScout.com's top-ranked free safety, this position shows how little was thought of the class as a whole. However, Iloka is a heady player who could potentially move to outside linebacker.

168. Oakland Raiders: WR Juron Criner, Arizona -- Arguably the top possession receiver in the draft, Criner has the height, huge hands and long arms to go get the ball even when he's covered.

169. Baltimore Ravens: CB Asa Jackson, Cal Poly -- Good instincts and range, make him better as a zone defender or safety convert.

170. Indianapolis Colts: RB Vick Ballard, Mississippi State -- A power back who carries his weight well and runs behind his pads but lacks breakaway, home-run speed.
