Round 5
PICK(OVR)PLAYER/SCHOOLPOSDRAFTED BYNOTES
  • What he brings: 

    Chapman's a two-gap run stopper with a low center of gravity and above-average lower-body strength. There's no questioning his toughness after he played on a torn ACL and meniscus most of the 2011 season.

    How he fits: 

    This Colts defense has vowed to get stronger and more physical. They're also making the switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4. Although they claimed they're weren't concerned about NT, it didn't look like they were very good at that position. Chapman will add depth and physicality to help them make a quicker transition in the 3-4.

  • How he fits: 

    Jackson's a powerful left end who can set the edge against the run and collapse the pocket, but he's not going to run around offensive tackles.

  • What he brings: 

    Whitehead's an undersized outside linebacker that struggles in a phone booth. Where he brings best value is as a pass rusher off the edge with speed and quickness.

  • What he brings: 

    Blanton's a big, physical and versatile defensive back that can line up at safety and cornerback.

    How he fits: 

    In a much-maligned secondary, Blanton gives them great versatility. He can play inside or outside. He can play press, off or zone and he has good overall ball skills. They should be able to find a way to plug him in.

  • What he brings: 

    Not consistent enough as a tackler and takes too many false steps, but has the size and speed to contribute at the next level.

  • What he brings: 

    Undersized athletic zone blocker with above-average toughness and power for someone with his frame.

    How he fits: 

    This offensive line was a real weakness a year ago especially inside and the Redskins have addressed this with two OG picks. Gettis has a chance to add depth and he will be very comfortable in this zone-blocking run scheme.

  • What he brings: 

    Marshal has active hands and he plays hard on every snap, but he can get involved by offensive linemen.

  • What he brings: 

    An instinctive playmaker with very good ball skills, he has good short-area quickness. However, there are some slight concerns about his overall long speed.

  • What he brings: 

    Sanders is light on his feet and has good lateral agility for a zone-blocking scheme. However, he needs to improve his core strength.

  • What he brings: 

    Thompson possesses a favorable frame combined with great athleticism. It should be noted that Thompson could switch positions and line up as a tight end at the next level.

  • What he brings: 

    Menzie's a tough, instinctive football player that lacks elite top-end speed and will need to be protected in coverage at the next level.

  • What he brings: 

    A rangy inside linebacker who covers a lot of ground against the run and in coverage, but isn't great in the phone booth.

  • What he brings: 

    Greenwood possess a rare blend of size and top-end speed, but has to answer questions about the level of competition he faced at Division III Albion.

  • What he brings: 

    Troutman makes up for his lack of agility with power and girth. He's a better run blocker than pass blocker at this point, and his footwork needs improvement.

  • What he brings: 

    Watkins is a massive offensive lineman that engulfs defensive tackles, but can play with better leverage and has limitations in pass coverage.

  • What he brings: 

    A collegiate left tackle who'll have to move inside to guard because of limited athletic ability. But he has the frame and toughness to push for early playing time there.

  • What he brings: 

    Coale is one of the more underrated prospects in this draft, who runs good routes and has one of the best sets of hands in this year's class. He's a smart football player who brings added value on special teams.

    How he fits: 

    The Cowboys have enough outside guys, but they lost Laurent Robinson in free agency and Coale could possibly give them that type of production in a Wes Welker-type role out of the slot as a possession guy.

  • What he brings: 

    Kelly's light on his feet, but possesses a narrow base and needs to get stronger in the core to reach his full potential.

  • What he brings: 

    Toomer possesses good range and shows enough athleticism to hold up in space, where he needs to develop more above the neck.

  • What he brings: 

    Kaddu has good straight-line speed, but he's a little tight changing directions and needs to get stronger at the point of attack.

  • What he brings: 

    Prater's an instincitive and quick defender that's aggressive in run support. There are questions about his top-end speed and he can get stronger playing the ball.

  • What he brings: 

    Ewing's a former team captain that does all the little things well and can contribute on special team, but he's not a big-play threat or a dominant blocker.

  • What he brings: 

    Crawford's a try-hard player with good size and strength, but limited burst and athletic ability.

  • What he brings: 

    Rainey's an undersized back with tremendous versatility and explosiveness. He's a big-play threat whether he's running the ball, working out of the slot or attempting to block a punt.

  • What he brings: 

    Miller's a four-year starter who's taller for an offensive guard prospect, but he has the weight and power to get away with a higher center of gravity.

  • What he brings: 

    Bullock has shown improved accuracy throughout his career and flashes the leg strength to hit from beyond 50 yards.

  • What he brings: 

    Has a blend of height, weight and speed teams look for at safety, but he's got to get better at supporting the run before he'll be considered for serious playing time.

  • What he brings: 

    An above-average space player that can hold up in coverage and flashes ability to bring pressure off the edge as a rusher. He needs to get stronger when locked in a phone booth.

  • What he brings: 

    Massaquoi needs to get better against the run, but he has the burst and athletic ability to make an immediate impact as a situation pass rusher.

    How he fits: 

    The only real pass-rush pressure that they generated a year ago was with an aging John Abraham. While Massaquoi is raw, he flashes edge pass-rush skills that could be developed because help is going to be needed soon at this DE position.

  • What he brings: 

    Fleming's got a short and stout build, and is extremely physical at the point of attack. While he lacks quickness and athleticism as a pass rusher, he does flash finishing power to get home.

    How he fits: 

    This is actually a position of strength for the 49ers with excellent starters and pretty good depth. But the one missing piece may be another edge rusher and that's what Fleming does best. He should also be great on special teams. This is a guy Jim Harbaugh really likes.

  • What he brings: 

    Jones is a smooth route runner with above average ball skills. He needs to get stronger as a route runner, and doesn?t have elite explosion.

  • What he brings: 

    Iloka has great size and length, providing him with good range in the back end. However, he needs to improve in terms of angles and breaking down to become a more consistent tackler.

  • What he brings: 

    Criner's a smooth athlete with big and strong hands. While he lacks elite suddenness with his routes, he has the size and body control to win one-on-one battles.

  • What he brings: 

    A quick-twitch and explosive athlete that needs work with technique and will need time to adjust to stiffer competition. However, he has great upside with his physical tools and can contribute immediately on special teams.

  • What he brings: 

    A bigger back with nimble feet and adequate lateral agility. He needs to run with better pad position and can do a better job of finishing with more consistency.
