      2014 NFL Mock Draft Update: 5th Round Firestorm By Erik Lambert - Apr 20th, 2014 at 2:56 pm 5th_zps83356e82.jpgJan 1, 2014; Glendale, AZBaylor Bears running back Lache Seastrunk (25) runs the ball during the first quarter against the Central Florida Knights during the Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium. Central Florida defeated Baylor 52-42. Casey Sapio-USA TODAY SportsThe 2014 NFL mock draft goes ever deeper into the fifth round.  Which players come off the board this time? The Bucs draft picks in... Round 1              Mike Evans – WR – Texas A&M Round 2            Jimmy Garoppolo – QB – EIU Round 3              David Yankey – OG – Stanford Round 4            Traded to the New York Jets #141. Houston Texans - Lache Seastrunk – RB – Baylor A home run threat who can help ease the load on Arian Foster for the Houston Texans. #142. Washington Redskins – DeAndre Coleman – DT – Cal Large, powerful defensive tackle who has the quickness to play defensive end for Washington Redskins. 5th5_zpsc494380d.jpg#143. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Anthony Johnson – DT – LSU Three-technique defensive tackle is king in the Lovie Smith defense.  Anthony Johnson is a raw talent who could make a great rotational option. #144. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jordan Zumwalt – ILB – UCLA Aside from his versatility, Jacksonville Jaguars will get effort and leadership out of Jordan Zumwalt at linebacker. #145. Cleveland Browns – Chris Watt – OG – Notre Dame He’s not always smooth but Notre Dame guard Chris Watt is strong, savvy and technically-sound to start right away for the Cleveland Browns. #146. Seattle Seahawks (f/OAK) - Bennett Jackson – CB – Notre Dame Big, athletic corners are the calling card for the Seattle Seahawks and they load up the depth chart again with Bennett Jackson. #147. Atlanta Falcons – Chris Smith – OLB - Arkansas Jadeveon Clowney was the main prize in this 2014 NFL mock draft but Chris Smith has a great chance to bring added pass rush punch for the Atlanta Falcons. #148. Minnesota Vikings – James Hurst – OT - North Carolina The offensive line could use more depth first of all.  James Hurst is their kind of tackle:  tall, strong and well-developed as a run blocker. #149. Buffalo Bills - Charles Sims – RB – West Virginia Running backs were the driving force for the Buffalo Bills last season.  Charles Sims is a versatile talent with sneaky speed and agility. #150. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/DET) - George Uko – DT – USC Veteran leadership arrived in free agency but the Jacksonville Jaguars continue to load up their defensive line with interior pass rusher George Uko. #151. Tennessee Titans - Seantrel Henderson – OT – Miami Somebody was going to take a chance on the enigmatic but uber-talented Seantrel Henderson.  The Tennessee Titans could use the help up front. #152. New York Giants - Ross Cockrell – CB – Duke The secondary is in transition for the New York Giants.  Ross Cockrell has good size and instincts and fits with their scheme. #153. St. Louis Rams – Brandon Thomas – OT – Clemson If not for a knee injury there is no question Brandon Thomas would go much higher.  The St. Louis Rams can afford the risk given his upside. #154. Detroit Lions (f/NYJ) – Lamin Barrow – OLB – LSU Linebacker is stable but not secure for the Detroit Lions.  Lamin Barrow is short but he can run, hit and play coverage like a starter. #155. Miami Dolphins – Ahmad Dixon – SS – Baylor Lack of development like sunk Baylor safety Ahmad Dixon this far, but his size and athleticism is something the Miami Dolphins can work with. #156. Carolina Panthers (f/CHI) - Kenny Ladler – FS – Vanderbilt Kenny Ladler won’t fit in every scheme but the Carolina Panthers run a defense that fits his excellent ability to read and react to plays in front of him. #157. Pittsburgh Steelers – Howard Jones – OLB – Shepard Jarvis Jones and Jason Worilds are the new kids on the block but the Pittsburgh Steelers must keep loading up on linebackers.  Howard Jones is an athletic, fast, small school sleeper. #158. Dallas Cowboys – Yawin Smallwood – LB - Connecticut Good value here.  The Dallas Cowboys were inadequate at linebacker last season.  Yawin Smallwood has experience in the middle but the athleticism and toughness to play outside. #159. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/BAL) - Victor Hampton – CB – South Carolina Gus Bradley knows how to handle tough characters.  Victor Hampton is a gritty, athletic cover man from South Carolina but has some off-the-field baggage as well. #160. Arizona Cardinals - Wesley Johnson – OT – Vanderbilt Wesley Johnson plays tackle like it should be.  The problem is he’s not heavy enough to handle the bigger pass rushers in the pros.  Still, the Arizona Cardinals take the risk. #161. Green Bay Packers – Michael Schofield – OT - Michigan He’s not as athletic as Taylor Lewan but the Green Bay Packers get a big, with good feet to handle the right tackle spot but can also kick inside to guard. #162. Philadelphia Eagles - Prince Shembo – OLB – Notre Dame He won’t win many matchups with speed but Prince Shembo has the power and violence to get after the quarterback.  The Philadelphia Eagles need it. #163. Kansas City Chiefs - Lonnie Ballentine – FS – Memphis Lonnie Ballentine is not polished but his athletic ceiling is tailor-made for the free safety position the Kansas City Chiefs need filled. #164. Cincinnati Bengals - Nat Berhe – SS – San Diego State Speed isn’t his game but Nat Berhe has the instincts, intelligence and toughness to fly around the field making plays for the Cincinnati Bengals. #165. San Diego Chargers - Spencer Long – OG – Nebraska Guard was a source of constant annoyance for the San Diego Chargers in 2013.  Spencer Long brings an attitude from Nebraska along with size and power. #166. Indianapolis Colts - Alfred Blue – RB – LSU Jeremy Hill received the spotlight at LSU, which made it easy to miss how talented backup Alfred Blue is.  The Indianapolis Colts need help at the position. #167. New Orleans Saints - Tyler Larsen – C – Utah State Losing Brian De La Puente left center razor thin for the New Orleans Saints.  Stout pivot man  Tyler Larsen from UtahState can fill the void. #168. Carolina Panthers - Jerick McKinnon – RB – Georgia Southern The stable is full of power runners for the Carolina Panthers but they do need a better home run threat.  Jerick McKinnon blew up the combine and looks like a real weapon. #169. New Orleans Saints (f/PHI) - James Gayle – DE – Virginia Tech Defensive end isn’t a pressing need for the Saints, at least until somebody gets hurt.  That is why they take the value of James Gayle and his pass rush skill. #170. San Francisco 49ers - Brent Urban – DE – Virginia Justin Smith is getting old fast and the San Francisco 49ers are feeling the heat.  Brent Urban has ideal size and length for the end position with pass rush skill trending up. #171. Denver Broncos – Larry Webster – DE – Bloomsburg Considering Larry Webster only started playing defensive end a couple years ago and dominated Division II, it’s scary to think what might happen if the Denver Broncos bulk him up. #172. Seattle Seahawks - Brandon Linder – OG – Miami (Fla.) Russell Wilson gets more protection from the Seattle Seahawks with the smart and nasty Hurricane guard Brandon Linder. #173. Pittsburgh Steelers (comp) - Josh Huff – WR – Oregon Nobody can ever have enough weapons.  The Pittsburgh Steelers need depth at wide receiver and Josh Huff is a versatile athlete they can put to good use. #174. New York Giants (comp) - L’Damian Washington – WR – Missouri Hakeem Nicks left a real void on the outside for the New York Giants.  L’Damian Washington is raw, but at 6’4? with sub-4.5 speed he can become that missing piece. #175. Baltimore Ravens (comp) - Robert Herron – WR – Wyoming At worst Robert Herron offers value as a kicker returner but the Baltimore Ravens should be able to find better uses of his outstanding speed. #176. Green Bay Packers (comp) – Josh Mauro – DE – Stanford Josh Mauro showcased good versatility and strength for the Cardinal and could make an ideal fit at defensive end for the Green Bay Packers in this 2014 NFL mock draft.http://nflmocks.com/2014/04/20/2014-nfl-mock-draft-update-5th-round-firestorm/

      The Freak Johnson is a very valued pick at this point.  I would be all over this selection.

      I don't know, Chace. I was listening to Lance Zierlien of the Sideline Report (his father has been an OL coach in the NFL, NCAA, and CFL for eons), who said he thought Yankey wasn't nearly as good as a lot of the Mayocks of the world rate him.

      There will be a run on OGs before our pick in the 3rd, I feel. We could see the top 2 OGs go in the first round. Then the next 3 go in round 2 through early round 3. I see Yankey as one of those 3 going before we pick at #69.

      For what it’s worth, I’d be surprised if Yankey is a fit for what we appear to want to do (regardless of what we may think of him overall).

      Historically, Guard value is in the 4th.  This draft is weak at the position.  So yeah – I also think a run on them will go early.

      I’d prefer another starting caliber WR than a rotational DT as we just added the guy from Seattle in the offseason. At this point we STILL have no starting slot receiver.
