Round 5
  • Chip Kelly's Eagles have now drafted two Oregon players, and they get an above-average run-stopper in Hart. At 6-foot-6 and 281 pounds, he does a great job of shooting his hands inside, controlling blockers and shedding in time to make the play. He's also an underrated athlete who masks his average burst and closing speed with effort and violent hands rushing the passer. He's a good value at this point in the draft.
  • Grant is a polished route runner who has above-average quickness out of breaks. He has some inconsistencies catching the ball in traffic and must continue to get stronger. He flashes some ability to create after the catch.
  • Edwards is a bit of a boom-or-bust prospect. On one hand, he has a prototypical frame for a guard and flashes above-average power in the run game. Also, his length (35 1/2-inch arms) makes it tough for pass-rushers to get around him. On the other hand, he takes too many false steps, his hand placement is inconsistent and he's not a relentless four-quarter mauler.
  • Smith lacks ideal strength and size as a point-of-attack defender. However, he was the lightning rod on Florida State's defense and plays with great passion. He has excellent instincts, has range and brings strong versatility in coverage. Smith must continue to add bulk, but has a chance to add depth as a weakside linebacker and should bring excellent value on special teams.
  • Yankey lacks ideal athleticism and balance. However, he shows great awareness and good technique and has above-average inline power to get movement as a run-blocker. He has adequate lateral agility in pass protection but must learn to show more patience in sets.
  • Street is a natural pass-catcher with a good height-speed combination, although he would do well to bulk up and get stronger. He's not much of a threat after the catch, though, and he's a one-speed route runner who will have a tougher time separating at the NFL level.
  • Allen lacks ideal size and speed but is a better football player than athlete. He shows strong instincts and has good eyes in coverage to get an early break on the ball. He is also aggressive in run support and plays bigger than his measurables indicate.
  • Benwikere has marginal top-end speed, but he has above-average instincts and, thanks to his ability to anticipate breaks, can cut off receivers before they can build momentum. He also has good ball skills and can compete with bigger receivers for jump balls thanks to his 40 1/2-inch vertical.
  • Pamphile has above-average size and length as a developmental tackle. He must continue to get stronger in his core and learn to play with better pad level. However, he has adequate feet and agility with which to work.
  • Multiple NFL scouts have vocalized concern about Lynch's mental makeup, football character, commitment to the game, discipline and maturity. That said, he has the burst, flexibility and closing speed to quickly develop into a dangerous edge rusher. He also shows good power taking on blocks and has the violent hands to chuck blockers once he locates the ball.
  • Williamson is a big inside thumper who packs a heavy punch at the point of attack. He has above-average instincts and is a very effective tackler inside the tackle box. He lacks ideal range, though, and will struggle to hold up in coverage at times.
  • Berhe is an overachiever who diagnoses plays quickly and isn't afraid to mix it up in run support. However, he has marginal top-end speed and is not big enough to match up with tight ends. He's going to have to make an impact on special teams to make the roster.
  • Richardson is a massive interior offensive lineman who can engulf smaller defenders at the point of attack. He lacks ideal agility, though, and can struggle with quicker interior rushers in pass protection.
  • George is undersized but has excellent instincts and overall range. He will never be a strong take-on linebacker, but he will add versatility and value on special teams.
  • Lynch dropped a ball that would have converted a fourth-and-10 at the end of Georgia's 24-19 loss to Nebraska in the Gator Bowl, but he has average overall ball skills and can catch the ball with his hands away from his frame. He's also a zone buster who can make plays over the middle and an adequate positional inline blocker.
  • Barrow has intriguing upside in terms of height, weight and speed. He has ample experience and has been productive playing in the SEC. He shows adequate instincts and above-average range and is a reliable tackler in space who flashes the ability to deliver an explosive hit.
  • Richardson is a big and physical corner who has intriguing athleticism. He has good range and plays the ball well. However, he lacks ideal instincts and can become more consistent and aggressive in run support.
  • Reid is an excellent value at this point in the draft. He's a disruptive 3-technique who has the quick hands and feet to make an early impact rushing the passer. He can get engulfed in the run game, but he played with better pad level last year than he did in 2012 and is capable of making plays in the backfield.
  • Smith doesn't have great torso flexibility coming off the edge, but he's a powerful pass-rusher who shoots hands inside and tracks the quarterback as he works upfield. He discards the blocker to the outside when the quarterback tries to step up and to the inside when the quarterback tries to break contain. He also has the length (34 1/8 inches) and upper-body strength to set the edge against the run.
  • Stinson is an aggressive and physical player who empties the tank every time he's on the field. He's at his best pressing offensive tackles inside and setting the edge against the run. He's not an explosive edge rusher but will make the occasional effort sack.
  • Linsley is a team captain with experience at guard and center. He's tough and smart, but he has shorter arms and tends to lunge. He's also on the lighter side and doesn't match up well against bigger 3-4 nose tackles, making him a bit of a reach.
  • Reynolds lacks ideal athleticism and range in the back end. However, he has excellent instincts and recognition skills to quickly react to the play. He also has improved his consistency against the run.
  • Murray lacks ideal size and physical tools, particularly in terms of arm strength. However, he is tough and has everything you want above the shoulders in terms of field presence and awareness. He is a developmental backup who could come in and be a good distributor of the football.

    What this offense asks of Alex Smith, it also should be able to get out of Murray, although he might have more of an "it" factor than Smith. This is a West Coast passing game with a lot of safe passes, which suits Murray's skill set well. In this run-oriented attack, he can thrive in this offense and could quickly rise to No. 2 QB on the depth chart.
  • McCarron has an average skill set and must clean up some mechanics in his lower body. However, he shows underrated pocket presence and played well in big moments throughout his career at Alabama. He is a developmental prospect who has enough tools to develop into a starter down the road with proper coaching.

    You hate the term "game manager," but McCarron is the ultimate guy when commanding the huddle. He is a winner with decent but not elite skills. He can pretty much do everything that Andy Dalton can, and he looks as if he's a really nice fit in this offense. He may well be more competition for Dalton than you might think.
  • Carrethers doesn't have great quickness and doesn't offer much as a pass-rusher, but he's very good at what he does, which is clog up the middle. At 6-foot-1 and 337 pounds, he's a wide-bodied nose tackle who can occupy multiple blockers and free up his linebackers to chase the ball.
  • Newsome is an undersized developmental prospect who needs to get stronger as an edge. He has intriguing quickness off the edge as a pass-rusher but needs to improve with his hands. He also provides adequate versatility as an edge defender.
  • Sunseri comes with some durability questions and lacks ideal athleticism. However, he is an instinctive defender who flashes playmaking instincts to convert turnovers. He needs to continue to get stronger in run support but is a fairly reliable tackler in space.
  • Spruill is a run-and-hit maniac. He flashes an explosive closing burst and has the ability to deliver a violent hit. He also excels as a blitzer. Spruill must continue to develop in terms of instincts but should make an immediate impact on special teams.
  • Powell comes with some durability and maturity issues and never lived up to his potential at Florida. However, he has an ideal frame and intriguing upside. He has above-average athleticism and flashes explosive snap at the point of attack. Powell must learn to play with more discipline, but can develop into an impact edge defender if he's able to right the ship.
  • Reaser is coming off a season-ending knee injury and isn't big enough to match up with bigger receivers, but he shows good instincts and closing speed facing the line of scrimmage. He's not afraid to mix it up in run support and flashes some power as a tackler.
  • Tripp is a small-school player whose production at Montana was outstanding, and he ran well at the combine. He has some upside as a sub-package linebacker and special-teams contributor, but he doesn't have great man cover skills and needs to do a better job of breaking down in space as a tackler. He's also on the smaller side with shorter arms, so he can get engulfed as a run defender.
  • Staten has a thick frame and flashed a lot of raw power at the NFLPA all-star game. He also shows heavy hands but must learn to use them more effectively. Staten should add immediate depth as a run defender while he develops as a pass-rusher.
  • Johnson is a two-time team captain who has starting experience at center, guard and tackle at the SEC level. His best fit is at center, as he doesn't have great length for a tackle prospect or power for a guard prospect. He's an overachiever with enough toughness and smarts to develop into an effective backup.
  • Kennard comes with some durability issues and is a bit of tweener. He lacks ideal athleticism in space and doesn't have great size setting the edge against the run. However, he flashes adequate quickness and active hands a pass-rusher.
  • Urschel plays with great awareness and has strong technique. He has just average athleticism and can struggle to adjust on the move. However, he flashes adequate inline power in the run game and shows good patience in pass protection. He also plays with a bit of an edge.
  • Abbrederis is a former walk-on who doesn't separate all that well underneath or show a second gear tracking the deep ball, but he can make plays working against tight coverage and can win 50-50 balls downfield. He's also an instinctive and fearless return man. However, there are concerns about his concussion history.
