The 2012 NFL Draft rolls on, and the amount of impact players has begun to dwindle. At this stage, teams look for developmental players and depth guys to fill out the roster. But a handful of potential starters have slipped into the fifth round of this draft.
Two of the best picks in this round came right off the bat. The Indianapolis Colts took Alabama defensive tackle Josh Chapman, who will be an outstanding space eater in the middle of Indy's defensive line. His knee issues caused him to fall a bit. The Colts also managed to grab an impressive running back in Vick Ballard with the last pick of Round 5.
With the very next pick in the fifth round, the Denver Broncos took Tennessee defense lineman Malik Jackson. An incredibly versatile player, Jackson has the ability to contribute to Denver's defensive line down the road.
A few big time sleepers came off the board as well. The Carolina Panthers scooped up Coastal Carolina's Josh Norman and the Atlanta Falcons grabbed Troy defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi. Both of those players could start in the NFL within the next couple of years.
But the best pick of the round belongs to the Cincinnati Bengals, who stole California's Marvin Jones in the fifth round. This has been said a lot over the last couple of days, but the Bengals really are drafting well. Jones will end up being one of the best receivers in this draft.
