Charlie Campbell's 2012 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round Five

Last update: Saturday, April 28, 2012.
This is a 2012 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft.

  1. Indianapolis Colts: Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington
    The Colts grab a nose tackle to man the middle of their 3-4 defense.

    Pick change; previously Cyrus Gray, RB

  2. Denver Broncos: Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas
    The Broncos add a speedy slot receiver for Peyton Manning to work with.

  3. Minnesota Vikings: Senio Kelemete, OT/G, Washington
    The Vikings need tons of help on their offensive line. Kelemete has received a lot of interest from Minnesota.

  4. Minnesota Vikings: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
    The Vikings need a wide receiver to complement Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson.

    Pick change; previously Lucas Nix, G/T (CLE)

  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Taylor Thompson, TE, SMU
    The Buccaneers want to add a backup tight end. They've brought Thompson in for a pre-draft visit and are interested.

  6. Washington Redskins: Philip Thomas, S, Syracuse
    After signing Tanard Jackson, the Redskins add their second troubled Syracuse product. Washington has had Thomas in for a visit.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Johnson, CB, Iowa State
    Gene Smith drafted a punter in the third round. He may just led his final draft as Jaguars general manager. The Jags passed on a lot of good corners in doing so.

    Pick change; previously Vick Ballard, RB

  8. Carolina Panthers: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
    The Panthers land an understudy to Steve Smith.

    Pick change; previously James-Michael Johnson, ILB

  9. Buffalo Bills: Malik Jackson, DE, Tennessee
    The Bills select a backup defensive end to go behind their veteran free agents.

  10. Miami Dolphins: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
    The Dolphins could use more help at wide receiver, and Streeter is a nice value in the fifth round.

  11. Kansas City Chiefs: James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada
    The Chiefs could use depth at inside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Dwight Jones, WR

  12. Buffalo Bills: Jaye Howard, DT, Florida
    The Bills get a defensive tackle to fortify their depth.

  13. Oakland Raiders: Frank Alexander, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Raiders need more youth on their defensive line on both the edge and the interior. Alexander and Chapman are good values for Oakland in the fifth round.

  14. San Diego Chargers: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
    The Chargers could use a running back to replace Darren Sproles. I'm guessing there are some character concerns pushing Miller down.

    Pick change; previously Nate Potter, OT

  15. St. Louis Rams: Brandon Washington, G, Miami
    The Bears grab some offensive line depth.

    Pick change; previously Matt Reynolds, OT/G (CHI)

  16. Arizona Cardinals: Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
    The Cardinals could use a better pass protector like Potter.

    Pick change; previously Kheeston Randall, DE/DT

  17. Dallas Cowboys: Ronald Leary, G, Memphis
    Sources have indicated that the Cowboys have a serious interest in Leary. He's went to Dallas for a pre-draft visit.

  18. Philadelphia Eagles: Janzen Jackson, S, McNeese State
    The Eagles get some safety help and have shown interest in Jackson in the form of a pre-draft visit.

  19. Seattle Seahawks: Kheeston Randall, DE/DT, Texas
    The Seahawks could use more help on the defensive line.

    Pick change; previously Terrance Ganaway, RB/FB (NYJ)

  20. Tennessee Titans: Tim Fugger, DE, Vanderbilt
    The Titans are interested in Fugger and are having him visit before the draft.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Terrell Manning, OLB, North Carolina State
    Cincinnati may need some depth at linebacker after trading away Keith Rivers.

    Pick change; previously Demario Davis, OLB

  22. Atlanta Falcons: Ladarius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
    The Falcons could use a backup tight end. They brought Green in for a visit.

    Pick change; previously Michael Egnew , TE

  23. Detroit Lions: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
    The Lions need linebacker help and are brought in Lewis for a pre-draft visit.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Vick Ballard, RB, Mississippi State
    Here, the Steelers get some depth at running back. They'll need it.

    Pick change; previously Akeem Hicks, DT

  25. Cleveland Browns: Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina
    The Browns get a receiver.

    Pick change; previously Travian Robertson, DE/DT

  26. Houston Texans: Tim Benford, WR, Tennessee Tech
    The Texans go with a speedy receiving threat.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Deangelo Peterson, TE, LSU
    New Orleans wants to improve its backup tight ends, and Peterson could be a nice fit in the team's offense.

  28. New England Patriots: James Brown, OT, Troy
    The Patriots get an offensive tackle for depth.

    Pick change; previously Adrien Robinson, TE (GB)

  29. Atlanta Falcons: Travian Robertson, DE/DT, South Carolina

    The Bengals grab a safety since it is a need on the roster.

  32. Cincinnati Bengals: Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
    Cincinnati adds a running back that is a good scheme fit.

    Pick change; previously Josh LeRibeus, G

  33. Oakland Raiders: Josh Chapman, DT, Alabama
    The Raiders grab a defensive tackle to continue to add talent to their front seven.

    Pick change; previously Terrell Manning, OLB

  34. Baltimore Ravens: Gerell Robinson, WR, Arizona State
    The Ravens could use some depth at wide receiver.

  35. Indianapolis Colts: Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia
    The Colts get a cornerback for their secondary. They had Tandy in for a visit.

No OL for the Steelers in the first 3 Rds?
Wow! you must really hate Big Ben. We have plenty of depth at LB already.

I don't see the lions going linebacker early unless one that they value high falls. Tulloch isn't going anywhere and Durant is signed for 2 years. They're both Just entering their prime and levy is no bum. I'm thinking Brewster rd1 maybe move up in the 2nd rd and target a corner or otackle/gaurd and 3rd rd go bpa.

wow jets need a rt not a g unless he is the next faneca also the 2 positons with the best depth for the jets is rb and te so a 3rd round te is unlikely another rush lb is more likely

Hey, here's a question, Charlie. If "Denver drafted their future middle linebacker in Nate Irving last year," then why did you give them another middle linebacker of the future? Seems like a bad pick to me.

Great mock draft. One of the best ones Ive seen on here so far. I can actually tell youve watched all these players play

Travis Lewis over Mike Adams for the Browns? The right side of our offensive line is an absolute sieve and we need a tackle before we even think about linebackers. 4-3 linebackers are pretty easy to find in the later rounds and with many teams going with 3WR sets, 4-3 linebackers are not as valuable as they used to be. Hopefully, Steinbach comes back ok, Pinkston/Lauvao stabilize RG and we get a solid RT in the draft to go with Thomas and Mack.

As a Broncos fan I would much rather have Burfict than Kuechly. You said it yourself, Burfict is an excellent run defender and he paired with Miller and DJ Williams would give Denver three great athletes at linebacker.

"If Jenkins had stayed out of trouble, he easily would have been a high first-round pick." Pun intended?

Mankins is signed through 2016 and Marcus Cannon is signed through 2014. They don't need another guard.

"Denver drafted their future middle linebacker in Nate Irving last year, so they find another good run defender here in Kuechly."

If Denver drafted their MLB of the future last year, why would they draft another one this year? Kuechly is an inside LB. Are they going to waste a top 10 pick on a back up?

Great insight into the Tampa Bay pick with the regional scouting angle. I wouldn't base my prediction on such a trend, but it definitely makes you think. Personally, I think that Dennard, Hosley and Cliff Harris are nickel back/second round types, not mid-first rounders, but that's just me. Cornerback is a need in Tampa, but I think that you were on to something with the idea of a RB to complement Blount. The Bucs' attack needs some speed and diversity. As we saw in Week One against Detroit, Blount becomes a non-factor when the offense is forced to pick up the pace. If Lamar Miller enters the draft, his versatility and explosiveness could be the lightning to Blount's thunder. Good stuff (as usual), Charlie.

The Colts are going to be in the top 4, they are the new San Antonio Spurs they will get their Quaterback for the future.

Hard to see the Redskins picking in the top 3 with the 4th easiest schedule this year. I'd put them in the 10-20 range.

Don't know about Egnew in the second round for the Chiefs. They have more glaring needs than tight end, even though TE is going to look like a major need this year with Moeaki having gone down with a torn ACL. Moeaki's recovery from surgery and how that goes will be the determining factor in whether or not the Chiefs take a TE early. Frankly, I see this pick being spent on a DE to replace Tyson Jackson who's an even bigger bust of a number three overall pick than Gerard Warren.
