2017 NFL Draft Results




Round 5



Desmond King fell to the fifth round. King was projected to go two rounds earlier.



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: May 2, 2017.


  1. Denver Broncos: Jake Butt, TE, Michigan A Grade

    Jake Butt was a great pick. I had Butt going one pick later.


  2. San Francisco 49ers: George Kittle, TE, Iowa A Grade

    I had a higher grade on George Kittle than Jake Butt. Desmond King was still there though so this is an A grade.



  3. Chicago Bears: Jordan Morgan, LT, Kutztown C Grade

    I love Jordan Morgan as a guard for depth at this point. I hate Morgan as a starting left tackle despite being a 4-year starter at Kutztown. Corey Leno has no business as Chicago's left tackle and I do not have much confidence in Morgan if he ends up protecting Trubisky's blindside.


  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Blair Brown, MLB, Ohio A Grade

    Blair Brown is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, and 4-3 left outside linebacker. This pick easily gets an A grade.



  5. Atlanta Falcons: Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State B+ Grade

    Atlanta was pretty deep at cornerback, but needed one more cornerback for depth. Kazee dominated the Senior Bowl, but his lackof size limits him to a nickel or dime role. With Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford, Jalen Collins, and Brian Poole, Kazee gives Atlanta a cornerback for depth and someone who can start out as the quarter cornerback in 5 cornerback sets who can learn Atlanta's system. There is no question that Kazee can have a Tavon Young like impact down the road, but Kazee just needs to focus on making this roster spot right now and developing.


    In two years he could be Atlanta's nickel corner when Jalen Collins becomes a Free Agent, but right now he's just a backup in Atlanta who can play, but will always be limited to a nickel role. He outplayed Desmond King in Mobile, but I also feel like the Falcons will regret passing on King.


  6. New York Jets: Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson A- Grade

    Jordan Leggett is a #2 tight end. He's not a #1 tight end, but was expected to go a lot earlier than this in the fourth round and that's why I love the vaue with this pick.



  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Desmond King, CB, Iowa A+ Grade

    Desmond King should have been picked two rounds earlier. He can play cornerback or free safety. This is easily an A+ grade.




  8. Carolina Panthers: Corn Elder, CB, Miami FL A Grade

    I had Corn Elder in the fourth round of my mock draft, but a sixth round grade on him on my Fanspeak board due to the demand at cornerback. Some teams had a third round grade on him according to scouts, but a lot of teams moved him down to the fifth to seventh round range due to having nickel cornerback upside at best. I think that's the biggest reason Elder fell as far as he did, but Carolina drafted two good corners in 2016 that went through growing pains as rookies. Those guys are only going to get better this year and puting Elder in the nickel in Carolina is a nice insurance policy.



  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Jake Elliott, K, Memphis C Grade

    I like Jake Elliott. Not over Zane Gonzalez though. The Bengals needed a kicker though.


  10. Washington Redskins: Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas B Grade

    I'm not a huge fan of Sprinkle and see a #2 tight end at best. Washington is a great fit for Sprinkle as a #2 tight end behind Jordan Reed though.



  11. Tennessee Titans: Jayon Brown, 3-4 MLB, UCLA B Grade

    I wasn't the biggest Jayon Brown fan. This feels like it could be a good fit though.


  12. Atlanta Falcons: Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming A+ Grade

    Devonta Freeman enters a contract year. Hill is a great replacement for Freeman if he the Falcons choose not to re-sign him. Hill may have a minimal role with the Falcons this season, but he's someone to keep an eye on if he makes the Falcons final 53 man roster.



  13. Arizona Cardinals: Will Holden, RT, Vanderbilt A+ Grade

    Jared Veldheer enters a contract year and turns 30 in July. Will Holden was a third round prospect who is an awesome developmental player to groom behind Jared Veldheer.


  14. Indianapolis Colts: Nate Hairston, CB, Temple A Grade

    Nate Hairston isn't a guy I was that high on. He has nickel corner potential and the Colts will use him for depth which is why I love this fit.



  15. Baltimore Ravens: Jermaine Elumenor, RT, Texas A&M A Grade

    Jermaine Elumenor could end up being an immediate replacement to Ricky Wagner. I love the value he provides at this point in the fifth round for the Ravens.


  16. Cleveland Browns: Roderick Johnson, LT, Florida State A Grade

    I had Roderick Johnson going a little bit later to Cleveland. The point is that he's a great developmental left tackle behind Joe Thomas.



  17. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Walker Jr., 3-4 MLB, Northwestern A Grade

    I had a third round grade on Anthony Walker Jr. He doesn't have the best instincts, but was a great tackling machine at Northwestern. He is well worth a flyer at this point as Anthony Walker Jr. was someone I had a first round grade on.


  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise State A+ Grade

    Jeremy McNichols has lousy ball carrier vision on tape. I love him in Tampa Bay though because if he pans out he can replace former Boise State running back Doug Martin for a fraction of the cost if Martin gets cut.


    The 5-9 214 lb Jeremy McNichols makes a lot of sense here. McNichols lacks the ball carrier vision to start, but has three seasons of 1,000 rushing yards and would thrive in Tampa Bay if he can improve his vision once he gets to the NFL.



  19. Buffalo Bills: Matt Milano, LOLB, Boston College B Grade

    Buffalo goes with another left outside linebacker here for their 4-3 defense for depth. Buffalo loves ACC prospects and this could be a nice fit if Milano develops into a starter, but I had a sixth round grade on Milano, so he may get cut in training camp. At this point, you really cannot fault Buffalo for taking a flyer on Milano.


  20. Miami Dolphins: Isaac Asiata, LG, Utah A+ Grade

    Miami needs a guard. Isaac Asiata can play left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle with his versatility at 6-3 325 lbs. I had Asiata as a top 5 guard in this class so this could be a huge steal.



  21. Detroit Lions: Jamal Agnew, CB, San Diego D+ Grade

    Jamal Agnew wasn't even in my top 300. A local hometown player like Channing Stribling may have been a better pick. Detroit has a ton of cornerback depth so I bumped this up to a D+ grade.


  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia D Grade

    Shelton Gibson should not have been the first West Virginia player drafted. The Eagles made up for this by securing West Virginia's top prospect Tyler Orlosky as an undrafted Free Agent which is what spared them from an F grade.



  23. New York Giants: Avery Moss, RE, Youngstown State A Grade

    Avery Moss was a player I had a fourth round grade on. He got drafted earlier than I expected, but this is a great pick regardless.


  24. Oakland Raiders: Marquel Lee, MLB, Wake Forest C Grade

    I like Marquel Lee. He is a tackling machine. Lee had 105 total tackles, 20 tackles for a loss, and 7.5 sacks in 2016. Lee posted great stats, but is a two-down linebacker with terrible athleticism. The best I can give Oakland is a C grade for taking Lee two rounds early.



  25. Houston Texans: Treston Decoud, CB, Oregon State B Grade

    Treston Decoud got torched by John Ross. Practicing against Will Fuller will help prepare him for a nickel role in the NFL. This is a great fit for Decoud who gets to learn from Kareem Jackson and Kevin Johnson the Texans 2015 first round pick.



  26. Minnesota Vikings: Rodney Adams, WR, South Florida C Grade

    Adams is a solid additon for depth. Adams possesses great speed for a wide receiver.


  27. Buffalo Bills: Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh A Grade

    Sean McDermott drafts his quarterback for the new regime in Buffalo. Peterman was graded higher than Joshua Dobbs, the quarterback he once backed up at Tennesssee. Worst case scenario, Peterman is another Tom Savage and best case scenario you may have gotten Tom Brady esque value in the fifth round with Nate Peterman. Peterman is no Brady, but he's a guy who drew comparisons to Derek Carr in Mobile and getting him on day 3 especially at this point in the fifth round is a huge steal.



  28. Denver Broncos: Isaiah McKenzie, WR, Georgia C Grade

    Isiah McKenzie is undersized. He's fast though and is capable of being a guy who contributes on special teams.


  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Brian Allen, CB, Utah A+ Grade

    The 6-3 215 lb Brian Allen can play man coverage, zone coverage, or press coverage. Allen has the football IQ to understand cover 0, cover 1, cover 2, cover 3, and cover 4. Allen ran a 4.43 40 time at the 2017 NFL Combine and at Utah's Pro Day. Allen is a guy wh should have been selected a lot earlier and Pittsburgh was smart to take a flyer on him at this point.



  30. Atlanta Falcons: Eric Saubert, TE, Drake A+ Grade

    I had the Colts getting Saubert in round 4 one pick after the Falcons took George Kittle. Believe it or not, I had a higher grade on Saubert than Butt so I love this pick for the Falcons.




  31. Green Bay Packers: DeAngelo Yancey, WR, Purdue C Grade

    DeAngelo Yancey had 10 receiving touchdowns in 2016. He actually did better on tape versus Jalen Myrick than Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin. The Packers are absolutely loaded at receiver and Yancey intrigues me so I can live with this pick. At the same time the Packers have a dire need at both guard positions and I hate how the Packers ignored that throughout the draft so I'm giving the Packers a C grade here.



  32. Cincinnati Bengals: J.J. Dielman, C, Utah A+ Grade

    Cincinnati gets the 176th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Atlanta Falcons signed wide receiver Mohamed Sanu in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Sanu became a Free Agent in 2016.


    J.J. Dielman has experience at all 5 positions on the offensive line. He';s talented enough to replace Russell Bodine right now. Dielman did a superb job run blocking for Devontae Booker in 2015 and I'm glad somebody was smart enough to draft him.


  33. San Francisco 49ers: Trent Taylor, WR, Louisiana Tech A+ Grade

    San Francisco moved up for this comp pick that Denver owned. Trent Taylor is an awesome replacement for Quinton Patton.


    Trent Taylor had his best season yet with 136 receptions, 1,803 receiving yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns. Trent Taylor accepted an invite to the 2017 Senior Bowl and will be facing bigger and more battle tested cornerbacks that are graded higher than him, but did well against those cornerbacks.


  34. Miami Dolphins: Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU B Grade

    Miami gets the 178th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Houston Texans signed running back Lamar Miller in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Miller became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Davon Godchaux would be better in a 3-4 defense in the 5-technique. This is still a solid pick for depth though.


  35. Arizona Cardinals: T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina B Grade

    Arizona gets the 179th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Chicago Bears signed right tackle Bobbie Massie in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Massie became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Arizona needed running back depth. T.J. Logan was a late round prospect and a guy who had the fastest 40 at the NFL Combine despite having a limited workload and splitting carries with Elijah Hood. Hood has more experience, but Logan did better this season.



  36. Minnesota Vikings: Danny Isidora, RG, Miami FL A Grade

    The Vikings needed a replacement to Brandon Fusco. Danny Isidora should have gotten picked earlier than this and I had the Dolphins taking Isidora two picks ago in my final 2017 NFL Mock Draft.


  37. New York Jets: Dylan Donahue, 3-4 LOLB, West Georgia B Grade

    Dylan Donahue ran a 4.78 40-time. He has multiple seasons of double digit tackles for a loss and double digit sacks. The Jets needed an outside linebacker for depth so I got no problem with New York taking a flyer on Dylan Donahue at this point.


  38. Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP C- Grade

    Green Bay gets the 182nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the San Diego Chargers signed cornerback Casey Heyward in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Heyward became a Free Agent in 2016.


    I like Aaron Jones better than Jamaal Williams. This feels like a reach though. Jones had great tape versus Texas, but I read an article about how he had some off the field stuff. Jones got arrested in 2015, but if he's shown he's matured since then, I think you could be getting Joe Mixon type of value on day 3. Jones is a really talented running back on tape despite the reports I've read so I'm kind of glad the Packers looked past it, but also sort of concerned.


  39. Kansas City Chiefs: Ukeme Eligwe, 3-4 LOLB, Georgia Southern B Grade

    Ukeme Eligwe could be a good developmental player while Dee Ford plays out his contract. He would likely be a situational pass rusher in Kansas City. Eligwe played outside linebacker at Florida State before learning middle linebacker at Georgia Southern which is why I'm warming up to this pick.



  40. Philadelphia Eagles: Nathan Gerry, FS, Nebraska A+ Grade

    Nathan Gerry was a third round pick. This was a great steal by the Eagles.
