2012 NFL Draft Results: Full List Of Round 5 Picks

The 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft started off with a national champion -- Josh Chapman. The Alabama nose tackle was the first pick of the 5th round when the Indianapolis Colts turned in their card. This could end up being a solid pick because nose tackles aren't easy to find, especially when you're moving to a 3-4 defense, like the Colts are under Chuck Pagano.

Other highlights from this round include Bradie Ewing, the top fullback in the draft, going to the Falcons. Josh Norman, Coastal Carolina CB, went to the Panthers and Zebrie Sanders slid to the 6th round.

2012 NFL Draft Results: Colts Close Out The 5th Round

The 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft is over. Three of the final five picks in the 5th round belonged to the AFC North, including two belonging to the Bengals who have taken in a big haul of draft picks this week. Cincinnati added another receiver, using the 166th pick on Marvin Jones from Cal.

The last pick in the round belonged to the Colts, a compensatory pick that they used on Mississippi State's Vick Ballard, a running back.

166. Cincinnati Bengals: California WR Marvin Jones, 6'1", 199 pounds

167. Cincinnati Bengals: Boise State FS George Iloka, 6'4", 225 poiunds

Mocking The Draft On Iloka:

Strengths: Is the biggest defensive back in this year's class and has long arms (a wing span of more than 81 inches). Can cover a lot of ground in a hurry. Has decent playing speed, but is fast and quick enough to stick with tight ends. Has played cornerback who can move around fairly well. Experienced. Started 45 games, playing in 53. Incredible athlete. Had a vertical jump of 38 inches.

Weaknesses: Takes poor angles in zone coverage and will be late to the ball. Isn't as big of a hitter as you'd expect from someone his size. Coaches may want to amp up his aggressiveness. Tackling will sometimes be an issue for Iloka. He doesn't always wrap and drive through the ball carrier. Doesn't have the best body control. Struggles to make a play on the ball in the air when he's out of place.

168. Oakland Raiders: Arizona WR Juron Criner, 6'3" 224 pounds

169. Baltimore Ravens: Cal Poly CB Asa Jackson, 5'10", 191 pounds

170: Indianapolis Colts: Mississippi State RB Vick Ballard, 5'10", 219 pounds

2012 NFL Draft Results: Falcons Select DE Jonathan Massaquoi With 5th Round Pick

The 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft rolls right along on Saturday. Five more teams have made their picks, including the New Orleans Saints, who went with a lesser-known name from a smaller school. The pick was only the third of the draft for the Saints.

161. Houston Texans: Texas A&M Aggies kicker Randol Bullock, 5'9, 205 pounds

162. New Orleans Saints: Stamford strong safety Corey White, 5'11, 206 pounds

163. Green Bay Packers: N.C. State Wolfpack outside linebacker Terrell Manning, 6'2, 237 pounds

Here's what Mocking the Draft had to say about Manning:

Strengths: Manning plays fast and is a good athlete. He reads the ball carrier nicely and has the quickness to change direction and make a play. Displays good instincts when dropping into zone coverage. Has a tall frame to add more strength. Has the skills to become a good all-around linebacker. Led N.C. State with 12.5 tackles for loss in 2011.

Weaknesses: Doesn’t have the strength to consistently stack and shed at the line of scrimmage. Doesn't always take proper angles to running backs and will be slow to react. Plays too narrow. Manning was a surprise draft entrant who could have used another year to get stronger and become a better pass rusher. Had minor knee surgery following the 2011 season.

164. Atlanta Falcons: Troy Trojans defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi, 6'2, 264 pounds

Here's what Mocking the Draft had to say about Massaquoi:

Strengths: Massaquoi is a strong but agile pass rusher who often played with his hand down at Troy. Plays with natural leverage to drive blocker back from underneath their pads. Good at sniffing out the ball in the run game. Shows good effort. Good production. Had 31 tackles for loss and 19.5 sacks in his career.

Weaknesses: Struggled with double teams during his junior year. Likely doesn’t have the size to stay at end and will need to move to linebacker. Anticipation skills seem below-average. Will be slow off the snap at times. Doesn't pick up on draws or screens particularly fast. Only played two years of top-level football after transferring from junior college.

165. San Francisco 49ers: Notre Dame Fighting Irish outside linebacker Darius Fleming, 6'2, 245 pounds

2012 NFL Draft Results: Pittsburgh Steelers Select Chris Rainey In 5th Round

The fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft continued right along as the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to pick up running back/wide receiver Chris Rainey with the No. 159 pick in the fifth round. Rainey played running back at Florida, but at the 2012 Senior Bowl he was moved to wide receiver and turned some heads with his quickness and pass catching ability.

156. Cincinnati Bengals Bengals: Iowa CB Shaun Prater, 5'10, 190 pounds

157. Atlanta Falcons: Wisconsin FB Brady Ewing, 6', 239 pounds

158. Oakland Raiders: Penn State DE Jack Crawford, 6'5, 274 pounds

159. Pittsburgh Steelers: Florida RB/WR Chris Rainey, 5'8, 180 pounds

160. Cleveland Browns: Colorado OG Ryan Miller, 6'7 321 pounds

2012 NFL Draft Resuts: Arizona Selects Another OT In The 5th Round

The Arizona Cardinals selected the team's second offensive lineman of the day with the 151st pick in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Arizona picked Washington's Senio Kelemete. During his four years in college football, Kelemete played guard and defensive tackle before switching over to offensive tackle.

Miami added a linebacker to the fold with Oregon's Josh Kaddu. Since the Dolphins are switching full-time to a 4-3 defense, Kaddu could earn the weakside linebacker job with his athletic ability and coverage skills. He may need to get up to speed on the finer points of reading the pro game first.

151. Arizona Cardinals: Washington OT Senio Kelemete, 6'3", 307 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Kelemete:

Senio Kelemete is best fit for guard in the NFL, but he has the skill set to be a starter within a few years. His mean streak jumps out right away when watching tape, and he really is a natural athlete. He is just incredibly raw at this stage in his career.

152. Dallas Cowboys: Virginia Tech WR Danny Coale, 6'0", 210 pounds

153. Philadelphia Eagles: Purdue OT Dennis Kelly, 6'8", 321 pounds

154. Seattle Seahawks: Idaho ILB Korey Toomer, 6'2", 234 pounds

155. Miami Dolphins: Oregon LB Josh Kaddu, 6'3", 239 pounds

2012 NFL Draft Results: Chargers, Rams Select Offensive Linemen With 5th Round Picks

The 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft is well underway on Saturday. The Oakland Raiders, already short on draft picks this year, elected to trade their No. 148 overall pick to the Lions, who used that 5th-round pick to select a cornerback out of one of the smaller schools, Albion.

Meanwhile, the San Diego Chargers and the St. Louis Rams opted to beef up their O-lines with a couple of 6'4 picks.

146. Kansas City Chiefs: Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback De'Quan Kenzie, 5'10, 195 pounds

147. Buffalo Bills: TCU Horned Frogs inside linebacker Tank Carder, 6'2, 236 pounds

148. Detroit Lions: Albion cornerback Chris Greenwood, 6'1, 193 pounds

149. San Diego Chargers: Penn St. Nittany Lions guard Johnnie Troutman, 6'4, 325

150. St. Louis Rams: South Carolina Gamecocks offensive tackle Rokevious Watkins, 6'4, 338

2012 NFL Draft Results: Carolina Panthers Draft Josh Norman In 5th Round

The next round of picks of the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft are in. The last pick the Jacksonville Jaguars made was surprising everyone and taking a punter in the third round. Their next pick wasn't until No. 142 in the fifth round and the team decided to go with Nevada linebacker Brandon Marshall.

Just like they did with the quarterback position, the Washington Redskins doubled up on the offensive guard position trying to show up their interior offensive line by picking up Iowa offensive guard Adam Gettis. The Tennessee Titans trade up to pick No. 145 originally owned by the Miami Dolphins to pick tight end convert Taylor Thompson.

141. Washington Redskins: Iowa OG Adam Gettis, 6'2, 293 pounds

142. Jacksonville Jaguars: Nevada LB Brandon Marshall, 6'1, 242 pounds

143. Carolina Panthers: Coastal Carolina CB Josh Norman, 6', 197 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Norman:

Strengths: Has great height and length for a cornerback. Knows how to use his length to make a play on the ball and jam at the line. Plays with a lot of quickness and doesn't get caught by surprise. Starred at the East-West Shrine Game and earned a late Senior Bowl invite.

Weaknesses: Not an especially physical cornerback and will need to fill out his frame more. Average as a tackler and will need to work on the fundamentals of wrapping up and driving through the ball carrier.

144. Buffalo Bills: Florida State OT Zebrie Sanders, 6'5, 320 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Sanders:

Strengths: Sanders is a lanky, athletic tackle who saw most of his playing time come on the right side. He uses his long arms to keep defenders from coming around the edge. Does a good job when he can get out and block on the move. Played left and right tackle.

Weaknesses: Won't make it in the NFL if he can't add strength to his frame, especially in his legs. Struggled at the Senior Bowl to hold up strong linemen and gets moved around. Overextends to make up for his lack of strength. Needs to improve footwork.

145. Tennessee Titans: SMU DE/TE Taylor Thompson, 6'6, 259 pounds

2012 NFL Draft Results: Colts, Broncos Lead Off 5th Round With Defensive Tackle Picks

With the first pick in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts added some help for their defensive line in the form of Alabama defensive tackle Josh Chapman. The 316-pound lineman was a run stuffer during his days with the Tide.

Denver followed suit with an SEC defensive tackle pick of their own, selecting Malik Jackson of Tennessee.

136. Indianapolis Colts: Alabama DT Josh Chapman, 6'1", 316 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Chapman:

Strengths: Is short and gets low and uses natural leverage, which helps him routinely beat offensive lineman. Gets most of his penetration on passing plays by pushing the offensive lineman backward into the pocket. Showed his toughness playing most of his senior season on a knee that required surgery.

Weaknesses: Is mainly a space filler of a nose tackle. Chapman is hard to move off the blocks, but he's not a very agile lineman. Shouldn't be relied on as a pass rusher, which makes you think he may only be a two-down lineman at the next level.

137. Denver Broncos: Tennessee DT Malik Jackson, 6'4", 284 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Jackson:

Strengths: Jackson is a big, physical end who was lined up a defensive tackle at times. He comes with a lot of power off the line of scrimmage and is a good tackler. Good in pursuit. Since the offseason process began, Jackson has added weight (listed at 270 by Tennessee). Because of that, it's likely he's positioning himself to be a tackle or 3-4 end in the NFL.

Weaknesses: In pass rush situations, Jackson comes off the line too high. Doesn't have the power to set the edge. Doesn't have good counter moves as a blitzer and never became the sack artist some expected. Will sometimes have awareness issues.

138: Detroit Lions: Temple OLB Tahir Whitehead, 6'1", 233 pounds

139: Minnesota Vikings: Notre Dame CB Robert Blanton, 6'1", 208 pounds

140: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: West Virginia ILB Najee Goode, 6'0", 244 pounds
