2010 NFL Mock Draft: Round Five

Last update: Thursday, April 22, 2010. 4:35 P.M. - Major changes in all rounds.
Next update: Live 2010 NFL Draft Grades minutes after all 255 picks!

This order is based on the official 7-Round 2010 NFL Draft Order and the NFL Strength of Schedule.

  1. St. Louis Rams: Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, DE, Washington
    Wait, didn't the Rams just take a defensive end in the previous round? Yes, but I think they'll double dip. Even with Austen Lane starting across from Chris Long, St. Louis would need to add another pass-rusher. Steve Spagnuolo loved operating with numerous talented defensive ends in New York.

  2. Seattle Seahawks: Kurt Coleman, FS, Ohio State
    More help at safety; the Seahawks don't really have anything at the position.

  3. Cleveland Browns: Kyle Calloway, OT, Iowa
    The Browns signed Tony Pashos, but he's hardly a long-term solution at right tackle. I don't even think he's the short-term answer.

  4. St. Louis Rams: Rennie Curran, OLB, Georgia
    James Lauriniaitis had a tremendous rookie campaign, and David Vobora has become a solid strongside linebacker. However, the Rams have nothing to speak on the weak side with the exception of the recently signed (and over-the-hill) Na'il Diggs.

  5. Kansas City Chiefs: David Pender, CB, Purdue
    Kansas City has two great starting corners but needs depth behind them.

  6. Denver Broncos: Ed Dickson, TE, Oregon
    Josh McDaniels traded away yet another talented player for peanuts. He'll replace Tony Scheffler here.

  7. Oakland Raiders: Trindon Holliday, PR, LSU
    This is a match made in Al Davis' catacombs. Armed with a 4.34 40, Trindon Holliday will be expected to average 50 yards per punt return in Raider Land.

  8. Seattle Seahawks: Marcus Easley, WR, Connecticut
    Pete Carroll will be disappointed if he honestly believes that signing every former great collegiate wideout with the last name "Williams" is a sound strategy. The Seahawks need help at receiver.

    Marcus Easley is a bit of a project, but is undoubtedly physically gifted; at 6-3, 210, Easley ran a 4.46 and notched a 10-3 broad jump at his Pro Day.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Ciron Black, G/OT, LSU
    Cornell Green is currently penciled in as Buffalo's starting right tackle. The Bills can't allow Green to start many games for them.

  10. Chicago Bears: Jason Fox, OT, Miami
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Bears. Things are so bad that they're moving Frank Omiyale to right tackle. Ouch.

    Jason Fox has nice upside, so he has solid value here despite his injury risks.

  11. Kansas City Chiefs: Tony Pike, QB, Cincinnati
    Matt Cassel is due a $7.5 million option bonus before the 2011 season. If he doesn't perform well this year, the Chiefs will need a contingency plan.

  12. Jacksonville Jaguars: Myron Lewis, CB/FS, Vanderbilt
    Like many teams in the NFL, the Jaguars have depth issues at corner. Myron Lewis could also compete with Reggie Nelson for the starting free safety gig.

  13. Kansas City Chiefs: Emmanuel Sanders, WR, SMU
    I'm not exaggerating when Todd Haley seemed really frustrated with his receiver play. The Chiefs could take two wideouts in the first five or six rounds.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Harry Coleman, S, LSU
    The Dolphins tried to sign Ryan Clark, but he went back to Pittsburgh. Free safety is a big position of need for the Dolphins, and they should be able to address it during the 2010 NFL Draft.

  15. Cleveland Browns: Eric Decker, WR, Minnesota
    The Chiefs and Browns apparently think that owning a billion fifth-round picks is the key to NFL domination. At any rate, more than one wideout is needed to optimize Cleveland's pedestrian offense.

  16. New York Giants: Perry Riley, OLB, LSU
    One of the top players available, Perry Riley can play multiple positions in Perry Fewell's defense.

    Pick change; previously Mitch Petrus, G

  17. Tennessee Titans: Chris Hawkins, CB, LSU
    Another corner. When your goal is to beat Peyton Manning, you need all the talented defensive backs you can get. The Titans just signed Tye Hill, but they'll need to do better than that.

  18. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame
    The Falcons definitely need to look into adding depth to the offensive tackle position.

  19. Houston Texans: Blair White, WR, Michigan State
    The pro-ready Blair White can push the unspectacular Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones.

  20. Pittsburgh Steelers: LeGarrette Blount, RB, Oregon
    Willie Parker is gone, and the Steelers will be looking for another running back. LeGarrette Blount could be a Jerome Bettis-esque hammer to complement Rashard Mendenhall.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Garrett Lindholm, K, Tarleton State
    And the first kicker is off the board! The Bengals need to find someone who doesn't miss every single clutch field goal he attempts. Garrett Lindholm hit a 64-yard field goal this past season, and was 3-of-4 from 60-plus during his Pro Day.

  22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Brandon Carter, G, Texas Tech
    The Buccaneers need to get more out of the left guard position. Who knows if Arron Sears will ever play again?

  23. Green Bay Packers: Eric Norwood, DE/OLB, South Carolina
    Easily one of the top players available, Eric Norwood would be a nice third pass-rusher behind Clay Matthews and Brad Jones. You can never have enough guys who can get to the quarterback.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: O'Brien Schofield, DE/OLB, Wisconsin
    The Steelers have two great pass-rushing linebackers, but they don't exactly have the best depth at the position. Also, don't forget that James Harrison turns 32 in May.

    This is the perfect pick for the Steelers. O'Brien Schofield is a great fit for their defense, but probably won't be able to play most of the 2010 season. Pittsburgh won't need Schofield until at least 2011, so the team can afford to keep him on the bench until then.

  25. Baltimore Ravens: Tony Moeaki, TE, Iowa
    The Ravens could address the tight end position in the first round with Jermaine Gresham. The bottom line is that they can't rely on Todd Heap any longer.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Cameron Sheffield, DE/OLB, Troy
    Baltimore needs a backup plan in case Terrell Suggs plays another season overweight.

  27. Jacksonville Jaguars: Riley Cooper, WR, Florida
    Troy Williamson? Kassim Osgood? The Jaguars need to bring in competition at receiver.

  28. San Diego Chargers: Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Kansas
    Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd will both be unrestricted free agents next spring. The Chargers may bring in a mid-round receiver just in case one of them leaves.

  29. Cleveland Browns: C.J. Wilson, DE/DT, East Carolina
    With Corey Williams gone, the Browns could use some help behind Shaun Rogers and Robaire Smith.

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia
    Pat Williams will probably be back next year, but who knows how much longer the 37-year-old nose tackle will be around?

  31. Indianapolis Colts: Mike Tepper, OT, California
    Another tackle is needed; Ryan Diem isn't exactly doing a great job at right tackle.

  32. Washington Redskins: Selvish Capers, OT, West Virginia
    Even if the Redskins spend the No. 4 overall pick on Russell Okung, they'll need to find more help at offensive tackle. Selvish Capers is an athletic tackle who projects well into Mike Shanahan's blocking scheme.

  33. Pittsburgh Steelers: Barry Church, SS, Toledo
    Safety depth is needed just in case Troy Polamalu goes down again.

  34. Atlanta Falcons: Earl Mitchell, DT, Arizona
    The Falcons' mission right now is to beat the Saints. To do that, they'll have to get to Drew Brees with their front four. Adding more players who can get to the quarterback is a must.

  35. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ekom Udofia, NT, Stanford
    Casey Hampton, 33, just signed a 3-year deal. He may not last the duration of that contract. A successor is needed.

  36. Minnesota Vikings: Kavell Conner, OLB, Clemson
    Weakside linebacker is not a need for the Vikings, but Ben Leber will be 31 in December and he'll be entering the final year of his contract next season.

    Pick change; previously George Johnson, DE

  37. San Diego Chargers: Larry Asante, SS, Nebraska
    The Chargers have mediocre talent at strong safety. Someone like Larry Asante could be in the running for the starting job.

  38. Green Bay Packers: Thomas Austin, G, Clemson
    Jason Spitz is slated to start at left guard next year, but is coming off back surgery. A mid-round pick could be used for insurance.
