2021 NFL Draft Results




Round 5



Iowa defensive tackle Dayvion Nixon was the best player on the board. Find out who took Iowa's defensive tackle in the fifth round.



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: May 5, 2021.


  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Luke Farrell, TE, Ohio State D Grade

    Brevin Jordan, Kenny Yeboah, and Noah Gray were three tight ends with starter grades still on the board. Jacksonville takes a blocking tight end in round 5. This should be an F grade, but Luke Farrell may have been recruited to Ohio State by current Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer who last coached Ohio State. Also there's talk that the Jaguars may move Tim Tebow to tight end. Those things are the only things that keep the Jaguars from an F grade.


  2. New York Jets: Jamien Sherwood, SS, Auburn C- Grade

    New York finally took a defensive player. They get depth safety behind Marcus Maye and Ashtyn Davis. I had a sixth round grade on Sherwood and this is what grade the Jets get.



  3. Houston Texans: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami FL A+ Grade

    The 6-3 245 lb Brevin Jordan can catch, jump in the air, run good routes, and block effectively on tape. He's got a higher ceiling than Darren Fells who is no longer with Houston so Brevin Jordan could start right away at tight end. This was my favorite Texans pick even though I was a huge fan of Houston taking Nico Collins.


  4. Atlanta Falcons: Ta'Quon Graham, DT, Texas C Grade

    Atlanta gets depth at defensive tackle behind Grady Jarrett and Deadrin Senat their 2018 third round pick from South Florida. Ta'Quon Graham is a good defensive tackle who brings depth to Atlanta.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Evan McPherson, K, Florida A Grade

    Cincinnati drafts a new starting kicker. Florida Gators kicker Evan McPherson declared for the 2021 NFL Draft as an underclassmen. Evan McPherson went 51/60 on field goals and 149/150 on extra points in his career at Florida. McPherson was my top kicker in the draft and I mocked him to the Cincinnati Bengals at 203, but Cincinnati got their kicker a round early.


  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis A Grade

    Kenneth Gainwell is the best running back left in the draft. He's an upgrade over Boston Scott the teams 2019 seventh round pick. You could argue that Gainwell is a better pass catcher than Miles Sanders causing Gainwell to slide into a third down back role like Travis Etienne.



  7. Chicago Bears: Larry Borom, RT, Missouri D Grade

    Larry Borom had the worst film I've seen of any offensive tackle. He does everything well, but nothing consistently. His film was awful against Georgia, but he showed flashes against Georgia.


  8. Denver Broncos: Caden Sterns, FS, Texas B Grade

    Denver grabs Caden Sterns for depth. He can line up at nickel cornerback, strong safety, or free safety. He gives Denver depth behind Kareem Jackson and Justin Simmons.



  9. Cleveland Browns: Tony Fields II, LOLB, West Virginia, A Grade

    Tony Fields II is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, or 4-3 left outside linebacker. Cleveland gets Tony Fields II for depth at 4-3 left outside linebacker.


  10. New York Jets: Michael Carter II, FS, Duke C Grade

    Mark Gilbert was my top ranked defensive back on Duke. Mark Gilbert had durability issues. Meanwhile Michael Cater II doesn't have those durability concerns making him a solid backup here.



  11. San Francisco 49ers: Jaylon Moore, LT, Western Michigan B Grade

    San Francisco got a swing tackle for depth behind left tackle Trent Williams and right tackle Mike McGlinchey. Jaylon Moore was the best offensive tackle in the MAC Conference. I had a fifth round grade on Jaylon Moore going two picks later to Minnesota.


  12. Pittsburgh Steelers: Isaiahh Loudermilk, 3-4 RE, Wisconsin A Grade

    Isaiahh Loudermilk gives Pittsburgh depth at 3-4 defensive end behind Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt.



  13. Minnesota Vikings: Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR, Iowa A Grade

    Ihmir Smith-Marsette will probably start out as a number five receiver on an NFL depth chart. He's got the upside to develop into a number two wide receiver down the road. This gives Minnesota Justin Jeffersona nd Ihmir Smith-Marsette as the top two receivers whenever Minnesota decides to move on from Adam Thielen.


  14. Carolina Panthers: Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa A+ Grade

    The 6-3 305 lb Daviyon Nixon is a player I had a second round grade on so it was surprising to see him drop to the fifth round. Nixon has better athleticism than A.J. Epenesa had coming out of Iowa even though he wasn't the sack artist Epenesa was after Nixon received constant double teams without Epenesa in 2020. Carolina's 4-3 defensive line now has Brian Burns at 4-3 right end, Derrick Brown at 4-3 defensive tackle, Daviyon Nixon at 4-3 defensive tackle, and Yetur Gross-Matos at 4-3 left end.



  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Brenden Jaimes, RG, Nebraska C Grade

    The Los Angeles Chargers found their replacement for Trai Turner the right guard they traded Russell Okung for last year only to get released. Brenden James lined up at both guard spots at the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl. He was very good at left tackle at Nebraska. He projects as a guard in the NFL.


    Los Angeles now has Rashawn Slater at left tackle, Matt Feiler at left guard, Cory Linsley at center, Brenden Jaimes at right guard, and Bryan Bulaga at right tackle. This is Justin Herbert's new offensive line heading into 2021.


  16. Baltimore Ravens: Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State A Grade

    I had a fourth round grade on Shaun Wade. Baltimore has a deadly trio at cornerback with Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters, and Jimmy Smith. You also got an injury prone Tavon Young in a dime cornerback role. Shaun Wade is a nickel cornerback at best, but he'll start out as a quarter corner only coming in during situations where the Ravens call a quarters package with five cornerbacks. In any other situation he'll be a depth player unless the Ravens want to use him on special teams.



  17. Buffalo Bills: Tommy Doyle, LT, Miami Ohio C+ Grade

    Buffalo drafts a second offensive tackle for depth. The Bills get depth behind left tackle Dion Dawkins with this pick.


  18. Kansas City Chiefs: Noah Gray, TE, Duke A Grade

    Kansas City got Noah Gray. The only other tight end that I had graded higher was Kenny Yeboah who went undrafted. Noah Gray goes into a situation where he gets to be a second tight end next to the best tight end in the NFL I had a starter grade on Gray, but he goes to a great situation where he learns from Travis Kelce.



  19. Washington Football Team: Darrick Forrest, FS, Cincinnati C- Grade

    Washington needed a safety. They didn't draft the best safety on the Cincinnati which is my biggest issue with this pick.


  20. Denver Broncos: Jamar Johnson, SS, Indiana A Grade

    Jamar Johnson is versatile enough to play both strong safety and free safety with his versatility. Denver grabs the Indiana safety getting great value in the fifth round. He's probably a bigger threat to Kareem Jackson than Caden Sterns is to Justin Simmons. I mocked him around 156 even though some people had a day 2 pick on Jamar Johnson so I love this fit here.



  21. Indianapolis Colts: Shawn Davis, SS, Florida C- Grade

    There is no question that the Colts needed a safety for depth. Shawn Davis got torched in Mobile and felt more like a undrafted Free Agent.


  22. Carolina Panthers: Keith Taylor, CB, Washington A Grade

    The 6-2 191 lb Keith Taylor has great man coverage skills. I feel like the rest of his game needs to develop. Carolina can develop the rest of his game while he learns under A.J. Bouye for a year. Eventually he can compliment Jaycee Horn on the outside at some point down the road unless Carolina wants to put him in the nickel with Donte Jackson on the outside. Regardless, you have to love how Carolina upgraded cornerback in the 2021 NFL Draft.



  23. Las Vegas Raiders: Nate Hobbs, CB, Illinois C+ Grade

    There were better corners on the board. You cannot fault the Raiders too much for taking Nate Hobbs though. The Raiders took Hobbs because they planned to use him on special teams as a return specialist.


  24. Minnesota Vikings: Zach Davidson, TE, Central Missouri B- Grade

    Minnesota grabs a tight end for depth to replace Kyle Rudolph as the number two tight end. They take Zach Davidson out of Central Missouri the final tight end to crack my top ten tight end rankings.



  25. Cleveland Browns: Richard LeCounte, SS, Georgia A Grade

    Richard LeCounte is versatile enough to play both safety roles. He just projects better as a backup strong safety. LeCounte was one of the top safeties in the 2021 NFL Draft prior to his motorcycle accident as he entered the year with a higher draft grade than both Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell at one point.


  26. Houston Texans: Garret Wallow, 3-4 MLB, TCU A Grade

    arrett Wallow can play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, strong safety, or free safety with his versatility. Houston needed a replacement to Bernardrick McKinley after trading him to Miami for Shaq Lawson. They got a good one in Garret Wallow who was once a first round prospect on Joseph Potter's first big board.



  27. Baltimore Ravens: Daelin Hayes, 3-4 LOLB, Notre Dame C Grade

    Baltimore gets a second 3-4 outside linebacker for depth behind Tyus Bowser. Daelin Hayes fits the Baltimore Ravens 3-4 defense.


  28. San Francisco 49ers: Deommodore Lenoir, CB, Oregon B+ Grade

    I had Oregon cornerback Thomas Graham jr. graded higher than Dommodore Lenoir by one spot. That being said, I had a fourth round grade on Deommodre Lenoir and the 49ers needed a cornerback. That's why this pick got a B+ grade.



  29. Green Bay Packers: Tedarrell Slaton, NT, Florida B Grade

    I had Tedarrell Slaton going in the sixth round. Green Bay gets him as a backup to Kenny Clark at nose tackle.


  30. Los Angeles Rams: Ernest Graham, 3-4 LE, Northwestern C Grade

    The Rams reached here. They needed a replacement to Michael Brockers though.



  31. New York Jets: Jason Pinnock, CB, Pittsburgh C Grade

    Solid pick. Jason Pinnock actually showed he could be decent next to Dane Jackson in 2019. Pinnock may be able to compliment Bryce Hall.


  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: K.J. Britt, 3-4 MLB, Auburn A Grade

    Tampa Bay gets a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth behind Devin White and Lavonte David. K.J. Britt was one of the captains on Auburn and I had a fourth round grade on him so I absolutely love this pick in the fifth round.



  33. New England Patriots: Cameron McGrone, 3-4 MLB, Michigan A+ Grade

    <
    New England was awarded a 33rd compensation pick at pick 177 due to an error that the NFL overturned. New England originally didn't have this compensation pick. New England got this compensation pick when 4-3 left outside linebacker Jamie Collins signed with the Detroit Lions.


    New England gets a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth. Cameron McGrone gives New England a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth.




  34. Green Bay Packers: Shemar Jean-Charles, CB, Appachian State A Grade

    Green Bay got this compensation pick at 178 because right tackle Bryan Bulaga signed with the Los Angeles Chargers. Shemar Jean-Charles is very consistent in terms of getting deflections on film. Also, Green Bay is getting him for depth at cornerback.



  35. Dallas Cowboys: Simi Fehoko, WR, Stanford D Grade

    Dallas got this compensation pick at 179 when wide receiver Randall Cobb signed with the Houston Texans. Dallas uses this pick to get a wide receiver for depth.


  36. San Francisco 49ers: Talona Hufanga, FS, USC A+ Grade

    San Francisco got this compensation pick at 180 when wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders signed with the New Orleans Saints. San Francisco grabs another safety for depth in the fifth round.


    The 6-1 215 lb Talona Hufanga is the first Polynesian safety to play for USC since Troy Polamalu. His hard hitting, football IQ, vision, and zone coverage resemble the former Pittsburgh Steeler as he won the Pat Tillman Pac 12 Player Of the year award in 2020. He's also being represented by Leigh Steinberg who has represented numerous top draft picks.



  37. Kansas City Chiefs: Cornell Powell, WR, Clemson A- Grade

    Kansas City got this compensation pick at 181 when 3-4 left outside linebacker Emmanuel Ogbah signed with the Miami Dolphins after being a 4-3 defensive end for depth with the Kansas City Chiefs on their Super Bowl 54 team. Kansas City drafts a wide receiver here.


    The 6-0 205 lb Cornell Powell finally earned some playing time in 2020 after Justyn Ross got injured while Tee Higgins declared for the 2020 NFL Draft leaving an open wide receiver spot across from Amari Rodgers. Cornell Powell had 53 receptions, 882 receiving yards, and 7 receiving touchdowns in 2020. This was Corell Powell's only season as a starter with all the talent in Clemson's wide receiver room. Cornell Powell did well at the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl.


    Finally, I have an interview of Corell Powell. This interview from the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl is only on Anchor, but you can listen to the interview while reading our SWOT report of Clemson wide receiver Cornell Powell. In this interview Cornell describes the tremendous work ethic of Trevor Lawrence and the uber talented wide receiver room at Clemson.




  38. Atlanta Falcons: Adetokunbo Ogundeji, RE, Notre Dame C Grade

    Atlanta got this compensation pick at 182 when 3-4 right outside linebacker Vic Beasley signed with the Tennessee Titans. Atlanta grabs a 4-3 defensive end for depth with this pick.



  39. Atlanta Falcons: Avery Williams, CB, Boise State C Grade

    Atlanta got this compensation pick at 183 when 3-4 middle linebacker De'Vondre Campbell signed with the Arizona Cardinals. Avery Williams gives Atlanta one more cornerback for depth.


  40. Baltimore Ravens: Ben Mason, FB, Michigan A+ Grade

    Baltimore got this compensation pick at 184 when 4-3 defensive tackle Michael Pierce signed with the Minnesota Vikings. Baltimore used the final pick in the fifth round to get the top fullback in the 2021 NFL Draft.
