Tony Mario's 2018 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds




Round 5




Tony Mario Last Updated: April 25, 2018.


  1. Green Bay Packers: Trent Thompson, DT, Georgia

    Green Bay drafts a siutational defensive tackle that can play in the 4-3 or the 3-4 in a 5-technique role. Green Bay is moving to a hybrid defense.


    Other Green Bay Packers Selections






  2. New York Giants: Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa State

    The Giants haven't drafted a wide receiver to play across from Odell Beckham Jr. yet. A big body like Allen Lazard could be a huge steal if Lazard can show he can catch the football more consistently on tape.


    Other New York Giants Selections







  3. Indianapolis Colts: Tyquan Lewis, LE, Ohio State

    Indianapolis will have to draft multiple defensive ends if they miss out on Bradley Chubb. Tyquan Lewis provides depth for Tarrell Basham at the very worst and competition at the very best. He's a nice addition for the Colts here.


    Other Indianapolis Colts Selections






  4. Seattle Seahawks: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon

    The Seahawks get another running back for depth just in case Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise cannot stay healthy in 2018. Royce Freeman has three down ability if he can stay healthy. Freeman has great pass protection as well as pass catching. Durability is his biggest concern though.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections







  5. Washington Redskins: Mason Cole, C, Michigan

    Washington lost Spencer Long to the Jets. They probably will draft another center to compete with Chase Roullier who impressed as a rookie for the starting center job in 2018. Mason Cole is the top center on the board, and an awesome value pick at this point in the fifth round.


    Other Washington Redskins Selections






  6. San Francisco 49ers: Justin Jones, DT, North Carolina State

    The 49ers get a defensive tackle for depth. Justin Jones won't be a starter here, but San Francisco is a team that can get the most out of Jones as a situational defensive tackle.


    Other San Francisco 49ers Selections







  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Will Richardson, RT, North Carolina State

    Tampa Bay gets offensive tackle depth. Will Richardson can be a good backup to Demar Dotson. Maybe he can be a long-term starter for Tampa Bay after Dotson if he develops under Dotson after Dotson's contract is up in 2019.


    Other Tampa Bay Buccaneers Selections






  8. Chicago Bears: Korey Robertson, WR, Southern Mississippi

    More wide receiver depth for Chicago heere. Korey Robertson has the ability to be a threat in the deep passing game, plus he's someone Chicago can get for depth here.


    Other Chicago Bears Selections







  9. Seattle Seahawks: Dane Cruikshank, SS, Arizona

    Seattle gets a safety for depth. Dane Cruikshank can play nickel cornerback, strong safety, or free safety.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections






  10. New Orleans Saints: Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana

    New Orleans gets a tight end for depth. Ian Thomas dominated Indiana's Pro Day and is someone moving up on a lot of boards.


    Other New Orleans Saints Selections







  11. Pittsburgh Steelers: Avonte Maddox, CB, Pittsburgh

    Pittsburgh gets their second player on the Pittsburgh Panthers in this draft. Avonte Maddox is a name to keep to keep an eye on in the late rounds as he could play in a depth role or on special teams.


    Other Pittsburgh Steelers Selections






  12. Denver Broncos: Poona Ford, 3-4 RE, Texas

    Denver gets a 5-technique for depth. Poona Ford may actually be a better fit for a 3-4 role at 5-11 298 lbs then he would be in a 4-3 defensive tackle role.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections







  13. Cleveland Browns: Marcus Allen, SS, Penn State

    The Browns get depth at safety behind Damarious Randall at free safety and Jabrill Peppers at strong safety. Allen won't be a starter in Cleveland, but could be a great depth player.


    Other Cleveland Browns Selections






  14. Cincinnati Bengals: Oren Burks, MLB, Vanderbilt


    Cincinnati gets a middle linebacker here. Oren Burks may be talented enough to win a starting spot in Cincinnati despite being a day 3 pick.


    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections







  15. Arizona Caridnals: Sam Jones, LG, Arizona State

    Arizona grabs a left guard for depth when you consider Dorian Johnson got cut after one year and when you consider that Mike Iupati got injured. The local Sam Jones out of Arizona State is a great fit here.


    Other Arizona Cardinals Selections






  16. Detroit Lions: Jack Campos, LT, Iowa State

    Detroit gets depth at left tackle here just in case Taylor Decker gets injured again in 2018. Jack Campos is an awesome depth player for the Lions at left tackle at this point in the fifth round.


    Other Detroit Lions Selections







  17. Baltimore Ravens: Nic Shimonek, QB, Texas Tech

    Baltimore takes the best player on the board. They use this pick to get a quarterback to develop behind Joe Flacco.


    Other Baltimore Ravens Selections






  18. Los Angeles Chargers: Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky

    A successor to Rivers is needed. I'm not sure if Mike White will be that, but what he will be is a good backup.


    This may be the worst film session on a prospect. I liked White's tape and was talking about the analysis.




    Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections







  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Joseph Noteboom, RT, TCU

    Philadelphia gets another offensive tackle in the fifth round. Noteboom would be a right tackle for depth behind Lane Johnson. Noteboom played left tackle at TCU, but showed the versatility to move over to right tackle at the 2018 Senior Bowl.


    Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections






  20. New York Jets: Scott Quessenberry, C, UCLA

    New York signed Spencer Long Washington's starting center as a starter and Travis Swanson Detroit's starting center as a backup. Quessenberry can play center or guard which is why the Jets take him even if he may end up as a third string center.


    Other New York Jets Selections







  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Kendrick Norton, DT, Miami FL

    Cincinnati grabs a defensive tackle for depth. Kendrick Norton can start out as a rotational defensive tackle and work his way into the lineup.


    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections






  22. Oakland Raiders: Christopher Herndon IV, TE, Miami FL

    The Raiders get a tight end for depth here. Another Hurricanes tight end for depth to replace Clive Walford.


    Other Oakland Raiders Selections







  23. Denver Broncos: Hercules Mata'afa, 3-4 ROLB, Washington State

    The Broncos already have Von Miller, Shane Ray, and Demarcus Walker. They add one more pass rusher with Washington State sack artist Hercules Mata'afa who I see as a project player.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections






  24. Carolina Panthers: P.J. Hall, DT, Sam Houston State

    Carolina lost Star Lotulelei, but they still got Kawaan Short, Dontari Poe, and 2016 first round pick Vernon Butler who can step in behind Poe if Poe gets injured. P.J. Hall is someone Carolina can gamble on for depth here in the fifth round.


    Other Carolina Panthers Selections







  25. Tennessee Titans: Leon Jacobs, 3-4 MLB, Wisconsin

    Tennessee gets their 3-4 middle linebacker here in Leon Jacobs. Jacobs can play outside or inside.


    Other Tennessee Titans Selections






  26. Washington Redskins: Michael Joseph, CB, Dubuque

    Washington adds a cornerback for depth. Michael Joseph was the top player in Division 3 this past season.


    Other Washington Redskins Selections







  27. New Orleans Saints: Danny Johnson, CB, Southern

    The Saints get a cornerback for depth here. Danny Johnson would be a nice addition for the Saints at this point in the fifth round.


    Other New Orleans Saints Selections






  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ike Boettger, LG, Iowa

    Pittsburgh grabs Ike Boettger for depth. Ike Boettger played left tackle, left guard, right guard, and right tackle at Iowa. Pittsburgh develops Boettger behind Ramon Foster for a year.


    Other Pittsburgh Steelers Selections







  29. Buffalo Bills: Matthew Thomas, MLB, Florida State

    Buffalo gets their replacement to Preston Brown here in the fifth round. Matthew Thomas may have the ceiling of a backup, but this is one situation where he may have to start right away.


    Other Buffalo Bills Selections






  30. Minnesota Vikings: Logan Woodside, QB, Toledo

    Minnesota gets Logan Woodside here. Woodside gets to be a third string quarterback in Minnesota behind Cousins and Siemian. He could push Trevor Siemian for the backup gig though too.


    Other Minnesota Vikings Selections







  31. Seattle Seahawks: Andrew Brown, LE, Virginia

    The Seahawks get Michael Bennett's replacement here. Andrew Brown is a great value pick in the fifth round.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections






  32. Philadelphia Eagles: Trayon Henderson, FS, Hawaii

    Philadelphia gets a safety for depth here. I believe Trayvon Henderson is talented enough to play either cornerback or safety.


    Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections







  33. Cincinnati Bengals: Jalen Davis, CB, Utah State

    Cincinnati got this compensation pick at 170 thanks to Andew Whitworth signing with the Los Angeles Rams. They get another cornerback here in Jalen Davis who plays with the aggression Cincinnati looks for.


    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections






  34. Dallas Cowboys: Ade Aruna, RE, Tulane

    Dallas got this compensation pick at 171 thanks to Barry Church signing with Jacksonville. Ade Aruna provides good competiton for a late round pass rusher.


    Other Dallas Cowboys Selections






  35. Green Bay Packers: Tyrone Crowder, RG, Clemson

    Green Bay got this compensation pick at 172 thanks to Micah Hyde signing with Buffalo. Depth at right guard is needed. Tyrone Crowder may be able to win a starting job at right guard in Green Bay. At the beginning of the season, I had a second round grade on Crowder before his disappointing 2017 camapign despite showing outstanding tape in 2016.


    Other Green Bay Packers Selections







  36. Oakland Raiders: Deatrich Nichols, CB, South Florida

    Dallas got this compensation pick at 173 thanks to Brandon Carr signing with Baltimore. They traded this compensation pick to the Oakland Raiders though. Oakland uses this pick to get depth at cornerback. Deatrich Nichols is really underrated on tape to the point where Mack Brown wouldn't shut up about how good Nichols is when calling South Florida games on ESPN. Mack Brown even said Nichols checks all the boxes you want a cornerback to have.


    Other Oakland Raiders Selections






  37. Green Bay Packers: Mike McCray, 3-4 MLB, Michigan

    Green Bay got this compensation pick at 174 thanks to J.C. Tretter signing with Cleveland. Green Bay gets another Michigan linebacker who can come in and learn for a year before replacing Jake Ryan in 2019 when Ryan's contract expires. McCray can play any of the three spots as a 4-3 outside linebacker and can also play 3-4 middle linebacker so he fits the hybrid defense Pettine is trying to build.


    Other Green Bay Packers Selections
