Jon Dove, MockingTheDraft.com - Round 5
No. 132: Panthers select: Kealoha Pilares, RB, Hawaii Grade
This is a major reach for the Panthers. This team has a lot of young receivers so adding another doesnt make much sense.
No. 133: Bills select: Johnny White, RB, North Carolina Grade
I think White has 2 round talent and could develop into a very good running back. He is a hard runner that presses the hole quickly.
No. 134: Bengals select: Robert Sands, FS, West Virginia Grade
Cinncy needed to bring in some help at the safety position. Sands has some upside and could develop into a good player.
No. 135: Chiefs select: Ricky Stanzi, QB, Iowa Grade
This is very good value as there was some buzz for Stanzi in the 3rd round. Kansas City needed someone to backup Cassel.
No. 136: Cardinals select: Anthony Sherman, FB, Connecticut Grade
I am confused by the running back selections of the Cardinals. They have needs elsewhere. Sherman will likely be more of a special teams player.
No. 137: Browns select: Buster Skrine, CB, Chattanooga Grade
This is a small school guy that turned some heads with his speed. He will need time to develop but has the tools.
No. 138: Patriots select: Marcus Cannon, OT, TCU Grade
Cannon was diagnoses with cancer which is why he fell to this spot. He is a 2nd round talent and a real steal.
No. 139: Vikings select: Brandon Burton, CB, Utah Grade
The Vikings secondary struggled last season. Burton has a lot of talent and represents good value here.
No. 140: Chiefs select: Gabe Miller, DE, Oregon State Grade
Kansas City has gone defensive heavy in this draft. Miller has some speed and will make some tackles.
No. 141: Packers select: D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas Grade
At this point in the draft, teams are looking to add depth. Green Bay knows all about needing depth. Williams is a good pass catching tight end.
No. 142: Titans select: Karl Klug, DE, Iowa Grade
Klug is a high effort player that doenst have much of an upside. He is going to work hard but lacks good athletic ability
No. 143: Cowboys select: Josh Thomas, CB, Buffalo Grade
Thomas- Dallas had some secondary issues last season. Thomas has all the physical skills but needs time to develop.
No. 144: Texans select: Shiloh Keo, SS, Idaho Grade
Houston is getting a hard nosed player that can really deliver a hit. He has tight hips and might struggle in coverage.
No. 145: Falcons select: Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon State Grade
Great pick here as Rodgers will add another element to the Atlanta offense. He is a tough runner with good hands.
No. 146: Redskins select: DeJon Gomes, SS, Nebraska Grade
This a decent pick and will add depth to the secondary. He is likely to contribute on special teams.
No. 147: Jaguars select: Rod Issac, CB, Middle TennesseeGrade
The talent is present for Issac to succeed but he needs to improve his technique.
No. 148: Raiders select: Denarius Moore, WR, Tennessee Grade
Moore could be a steal this late in the draft. He has good abilities but suffered from poor quarterback play.
No. 149: Eagles select: Dion Lewis, OT, Pittsburgh Grade
Lewis lacks ideal size and speed but is very shifty. His ability to make people miss is what makes him special.
No. 150: Browns select: Jason Pinkston, OT, Pittsburgh Grade
This is nice value late in the draft as teams always need offensive line depth. Pinkston has short arms which impacts his ability to pass protect.
No. 151: Buccaneers select: Ahmad Black, SS, Florida Grade
If you want someone that makes plays Black is your guy. However, his lack of size and speed is a real concern.
No. 152: Texans select: T.J. Yates, QB, North Carolina Grade
Yates is a very interesting prospect that could develop into a starter. At the very least he is a good backup.
No. 153: Jets select: Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU Grade
The Jets are looking at the possibility of losing their return man which is an area where Kerley excels. He has good speed and is underrated as a route runner.
No. 154: Seahawks select: Richard Sherman, CB, Stanford Grade
A former wide reciever that is still developing as a coverman. He has potential and could develop into a starter.
No. 155: Redskins select: Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska Grade
Niles Paul is a big target with good straight line speed. He has small hands and struggles with drops.
No. 156: Seahawks select: Mark LeGree, FS, Appalachian State Grade
Seattle adds more secondary depth with LeGree. He is a bit raw but has some potential and upside.
No. 157: Lions select: Doug Hogue, OLB, Syracuse Grade
The Lions have a need at linebacker and Houge has potential. He played very well last season for a surprise Syracuse team.
No. 158: Rams select: Jermale Hines, SS, Ohio State Grade
This is a solid player that has limited upside. Hines is a hardworker that could be a good special team player.
No. 159: Patriots select: Lee Smith, TE, Marshall Grade
Smith is listed as a tight end but has the potential to play tackle. He is a big player with good blocking skills.
No. 160: Bears select: Nathan Enderle, QB, Idaho Grade
The Bears talked about adding a quarterback in this draft. Enderle is limited and didnt show much during workouts.
No. 161: Eagles select: Julian Vandervelde, OG, Iowa Grade
Iowa does a good job producing techniqually sound offensive linemen. Vandervelde has ability to be a decent guard in the NFL.
No. 162: Steelers select: Chris Carter, OLB, Fresno State Grade
Carter has some quickness and create pressure. The question is whether or not he can hold up in coverage.
No. 163: 49ers select: Daniel Kilgore, OG, Appalachian State Grade
Kilgore is an experienced player but didnt gain that experience against great talent.
No. 164: Ravens select: Chykie Brown, CB, Texas Grade
I thought that Brown would have gone a lot earlier. He has good quickness and balance.
No. 165: Ravens select: Pernell McPhee, DE, Mississippi State Grade
This is a player that can create pressure. McPhee is quick off the ball and has savvy to his game.
