    5th round pick

    I thought I'd change things up seeing as everyone is focused on the first 3 rounds of picks. anyway, who would you like to nab in round number 5?

    I vote Walter Thurmond III, CB, Oregon.

    He was one of the best corners in the country going into the season before a season-ending injury and had 12 picks in his career in Eugene. He's 6'1", fast, and has a couple of return touchdowns, too. I think he will be a steal for whoever gets him in the draft so I hope its the Rams.

    Who would you like in round 5?

    History of 5th round picks:

    2009- Brooks Foster
    2008- Roy Schuening
    2007- Clifton Ryan, Dustin Fry
    2006- Marques Hagans
    2005- Jerome Collins
    2004- Jason Shivers
    2003- Dan Curley, Shane Walton, Kevin Garrett
    2002- Courtland Bullard
    2001- Jerametrius Butler
    2000- Brian Young

    Sam Maxwell OLB from Kentucky and John Jerry OL from Mississippi.
    I don't know that Thurmond will be around then, but I would love it if he were.

    Re: 5th round pick

    I feel with the late rounds you have to take big risks to get big rewards.


    Hopefully, in the 5th or 6th round we can take Ryan Perriloux.

    He was All-America out of High School with better arm strenght than anyone in this draft.

    He played at LSU and had some problems but humbled himslef and rebuilt his career. He is the type of chance that could really pay off.

    During a 5 game stretch this year he had these stats:

    Perrilloux has the best passer rating of all eligible quarterbacks in D1-AA (FCS) and D1-A with a 199.22 rating, having thrown for 961 yards, 12 Touchdowns and 1 interception thus far. He has also rushed for 125 yards and three more scores on 40 attempts.


    Take a look at our 5,6,7 round picks over last 5 seasons and you will see why Perrillox is worth a chance in the late rounds.

    I am most interested at his combine results. If he puts up a decent showing I see him climbing back into NFL teams radar.


    Size, Athletic, Accurate, Arm Strenght, and Speed. He reminded me alot of Steve McNair (phyiscally) maybe the right team could get the most out of his untapped abliity.

    Re: 5th round pick

    If I say Danario Alexander, will it give richtree a migraine?

    More seriously, I like UConn's Lindsey Witten, Fordham's John Skelton, and LSU's Perry Riley as mid to late round prospects. That being said, a lot can change between now and draft day when it comes to who might be available there. You could make a case for any number of prospects, really.

    Re: 5th round pick

    so taking a chance on a late round FCS qb is the way to go? I guess that happened last year with Null and come to think of it, it seems like all the starting qbs in recent years have been late round picks from Warner to Bulger to Fitzpatrick, Null, Ferotte, Jamie Martin and Trent Green.

    anywho if we dont take a qb or Thurmond, I would like a CB to be drafted in the 5th

    Re: 5th round pick

    If Rams are still going to be running the WCO There has to be a receiving threat at TE.

    How about Dennis Pitta BYU or Jimmy Graham Miami.

    Marquis Johnson, Alabama's CB. He's the guy with most attractive pass break ups in college football and there were 17 of them last season. I don't know why he is so underestimated? Like the last one, in Championship game, these plays came when they counted.
