Charlie Campbell's 2016 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round Five
Last update: Saturday, April 30, 2016.
This is a 2016 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening'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 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Tennessee Titans: Zack Sanchez, CB, Oklahoma
The Titans grab some cornerback depth.
Carolina Panthers: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
Surprisingly, the Panthers didn't address the offensive line in the first two days of the 2016 NFL Draft. Here's a player with potential.
San Francisco 49ers: Josh Ferguson, RB, Illinois
The 49ers could use some depth in the backfield. This is a nice value.
Oakland Raiders: Alex Lewis, OT, Nebraska
The Raiders grab some offensive line depth.
Denver Broncos: John Theus, OT, Georgia
Offensive line depth wouldn't hurt the Broncos.
San Francisco 49ers: Fahn Cooper, OT/G, Ole Miss
The 49ers pick up another guard competitor. They've shown interest in Cooper.
Baltimore Ravens: Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech
The Ravens grab some running back depth.
Miami Dolphins: Josh Forrest, LB, Kentucky
The Dolphins could use some linebacker depth.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Stephane Nembot, OT, Colorado
The Bucs grab some right tackle depth with Demar Dotson nearing free agency.
New York Giants: Keith Marshall, RB, Georgia
The Giants could use more play-making competition at running back, plus Marshall has talent. He illustrated that at the combine, and he could be a third-day steal if he can stay healthy.
Chicago Bears: Nate Sudfeld, QB, Indiana
The Bears could take use some backup quarterback competition to see if they find a third-day diamond as an eventual replacement for Jay Cutler.
Detroit Lions: Stephen Weatherly, DE/OLB, Vanderbilt
The Lions could use some linebacker depth, and Weatherly also offers edge-rush contributions.
New Orleans Saints: Landon Turner, G, North Carolina
The Saints have a big need at guard, and they could use their last two draft picks to improve the interior of their offensive line. New Orleans has shown interest in Turner.
Philadelphia Eagles: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
The Eagles grab some cornerback depth, plus they have shown interest in Robinson.
Oakland Raiders: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
The Raiders could use some running back depth and competition.
Indianapolis Colts: Thomas Duarte, TE, UCLA
The Colts were wise to re-sign Dwayne Allen and let Colby Fleener walk. Here's a receiving tight end to pair with Allen.
Buffalo Bills: James Cowser, DE/OLB, Southern Utah
The Bills grab more edge-rushing talent after losing Mario Williams.
Denver Broncos: Eric Murray, CB, Minnesota
The Broncos could use some secondary depth.
Washington Redskins: Beniquez Brown, LB, Mississippi State
The Redskins grab some linebacker depth.
Houston Texans: Quinton Jefferson, DE/DT, Maryland
The Texans grab a five-technique to replace Jared Crick.
Minnesota Vikings: Tyrone Holmes, DE, Montana
Minnesota grabs more defensive line depth.
Cincinnati Bengals: Dadi Nicolas, OLB, Virginia Tech
The Bengals have the strong roster to be able to afford a luxury pick like Nicolas to be a situational pass-rusher.
Kansas City Chiefs: Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Georgia
The Chiefs get some more receiver talent.
Green Bay Packers: Avery Young, OT, Auburn
The Packers always have their offensive line depth tested, so adding more talent would make sense.
Philadelphia Eagles: Daniel Lasco, RB, California
The Eagles could use some running back depth, and they might trade Ryan Mathews.
Kansas City Chiefs: Tyler Matakevich, LB, Temple
Considering the age of Derrick Johnson, it would make sense for Kansas City to have some inside linebacker depth.
Houston Texans: D.J. Reader, NT, Clemson
Houston could use a backup nose tackle to groom behind Vince Wilfork.
Arizona Cardinals: Eric Striker, OLB, Oklahoma
It never hurts to have pass-rushing depth. The Cardinals have a strong roster to afford this luxury pick.
Cleveland Browns: Jake Brendal, OL, UCLA
The Browns could use some quality offensive line depth like Brendal.
Detroit Lions: Darius Latham, DT, Indiana
The Lions grab more defensive line talent. Given the age of Haloti Ngata, it would make sense to have an understudy.
Arizona Cardinals: Jalin Marshall, WR, Ohio State
With Larry Fitzgerald aging and Michael Floyd nearing the end of his contract, it would make sense to draft some depth.
Seattle Seahawks: Joe Haeg, G, North Dakota State
The Seahawks have now taken a tackle and guard so far, and now add a center in this mock. Seattle needs to do a lot of work on its offensive line.
Cleveland Browns: Tyler Ervin, RB, San Jose State
The Browns grab more running back depth behind Duke Johnson.
Cleveland Browns: David Onyemata, DE/DT, Manitoba
Here's another defensive lineman to help the Browns improve at getting after the quarterback.
San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas
Chip Kelly could draft multiple quarterbacks, especially if Colin Kaepernick is traded.
San Diego Chargers: Jayron Kearse, S, Clemson
The Chargers get some secondary depth.
@jsemmens I've been to the Big Board in the past, but it's still an inefficient way of going about a mock. Not to mention, reports and the people writing them change, no? I come to Walt's site because I used to like his insight on every player. Now, it's simply team needs and a very limited amount of actual analysis. You definitely need SOME amount of explanation behind a pick with regards to team need, but you need much more of the player evaluation angle. Any dummy can write why a particular team "needs" a specific position; it takes a pretty good eye to understand what player needs to fill it. Again, just my 2 cents.
@dawg66 I see where you're coming from. I really do. But I'm sure as a Browns fan you can understand, they have needs EVERYWHERE. You aren't gonna win a super bowl unless you have a QB. Case in point pretty much every super bowl winning quarterback ever. Second, yes you have Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman. Terrelle Pryor is a slot receiver which is gonna get you nowhere unless you play for New England. Corey Coleman has yet to prove a damn thing. Mike Williams, however, just took down Alabama pretty much BY HIMSELF. It's the right range for him and I'm positive Huge Jackson wouldn't pass over him at this point, meaning pre-combine and interviews.
Here's my mock based on team need, prospect value and prevailing opinion as well as some ideas of my own. Please let me know about the team(s) that you follow more closely, and any picks that you agree or disagree with. Please comment, and feel free to rate.
