We are finally at the end of this draft. Today we release rounds five and six and as you will see the experts dug deep trying to find Fantasy gold. There is a very good chance most of these picks will have a hard time making any Fantasy impact this year, but these picks are for dynasty leagues and some of these players may need a year or two to actually become Fantasy viable.

Enough of the talk, let's get to the picks…
 

Here are the drafters for this mock.

Monday Round One : Tuesday Round Two : Wednesday Round Three : Thursday Round Four : Friday Rounds Five & Six


5.01 Will Grier QB Carolina Panthers - Frank

Grier had a strong collegiate career, partly thanks to a unique West Virginia system. He has a gunslinger mentality who likes to take shots downfield, evidenced by his 10.7 adjusted yards per attempt, third highest in the nation last year. Yes, Cam Newton is the starter for the Carolina Panthers but is dealing with a serious shoulder injury. 

5.02 Myles Gaskin RB Miami Dolphins - Andy

I feel like he's been continuously slept on. His production in college was insane, and while some see it as too much wear and tear, his 200+ carries in each of his 4 seasons shows me durability. He's elusive out of the backfield, and a good receiver, and fully capable of becoming Miami's lead rusher.

5.03 Dillon Mitchell WR Minnesota Vikings – Joe G

Mitchell has experience in playing both on the outside and in the slot. He enjoyed a breakout season for the Oregon Ducks, setting a school record with 1184 receiving yards. He needs to work on improving his route running skills, but once he gets his hands on the ball, he's slippery and able to add yards after the catch.

5.04 Jordan Scarlett RB Carolina Panthers – Joe P

Scarlett could be the change of pace to Christian McCaffrey. He's a self-proclaimed "bruiser-back". The Panthers could use a more physical presence like him on their team.

5.05 Ashton Dulin WR Indianapolis Colts – Jim

This is a purely a what if pick. Dulin is a fast receiver who was quite productive at Malone, catching 11 touchdowns while adding three return touchdowns. He went undrafted but was scooped up by Indy soon after the draft ended. He will need to make the transition to a much better level of play, but if he hits in Indy this pick could be a steal.

5.06 Bruce Anderson RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Sigmund

The Bucs did not address their underachieving backfield and running game in the draft, but they still came away with a good talent. Anderson was an inexplicable undrafted free agent, likely due to a combine snub. He's a good receiver and runs with power and burst. Don't let lack of draft position make you think he can't overtake his weak competition.

5.07 Kahale Warring TE Houston Texans – Mike

Warring can become a really good Fantasy option for Deshaun Watson in the future. He will battle several TEs for touches in 2019 but can become a red zone go-to in future seasons. He does not have a lot of football experience (started playing as a senior in high school) so I think his best years could be ahead of him. As a fifth-rounder in a dynasty draft??? No-brainer.

5.08 Ryan Finley QB Cincinnati Bengals – Corey

This will likely be Andy Daltons' last season as the starting QB in Cincinnati. The Bengals traded up to draft quarterback Ryan Finley out of N.C. State. Dalton will be the starter this season while Finley learns the offense. 

5.09 Mike Weber RB Dallas Cowboys – Bob

Yes, I know the Cowboys have Ezekiel Elliott. But what if he gets hurt? Well, now Zeke owners and the Cowboys have a legitimate handcuff. He is definitely a great dynasty pick.

5.10 Jarrett Stidham QB New England Patriots – Shane

I'm not super high on Stidham's talent, but he was miscast in Auburn's offense and that was shown throughout his time. Despite this, he was productive and had shining moments and passes. The draft pick is simply this: He is a New England Patriot. Tom Brady could be anywhere from 1 to 5 years away from hanging up his cleats. If Stidham impresses, he may be the next QB for Bill Belichick and the genius Patriots offense. I'll take my shot on that at the end of the 5th if I have the roster space to hold him.

5.11 Elijah Holyfield RB Carolina Panthers – Dwain

Holyfield went undrafted after a dismal performance at the NFL Combine running a 4.78 time in the forty. In Carolina, he will compete with career backup Cameron Artis-Payne and fellow rookie Jordan Scarlett for a roster spot behind Christian McCaffrey. On film, Holyfield looks better than Artis-Payne or Scarlett. Matt Waldman compared him to Travis Henry and Lance Zierlein drew the Mark Ingram parallel. Both are good comps. Holyfield is a decisive back with an apoplectic edge to his game that will likely land him on a roster somewhere even if it isn't Carolina.

5.12 Stanley Morgan WR Cincinnati Bengals – Bob H

As NFL.com's Lance Zierlein noted, some scouts see Morgan Stanley as "just a guy" with average size and athleticism while others may appreciate his professional approach to the position and competitive demeanor. While he went undrafted, Morgan was the focal point of the passing game during his time at Nebraska, where he left as the school's all-time leader in receiving yards at 2,176 and he caught a pass in 38 consecutive games. He scored 17 times over his final two college seasons. Worth noting: Zac Taylor and the Bengals didn't go with a wideout at all in this draft despite 10 picks.
 



6.01 Emmanuel Hall WR Cincinnati Bengals - Frank

I guess I'm all in on the Bears' offense! Hall possesses the physical traits at 6'2 and ran a 4.39 40. He's a legit downfield threat, evidenced by his 20.8 yards per catch throughout his four-year career at Missouri. He's drawn player comps to Mike Wallace and could be the Taylor Gabriel replacement for big plays in a few years from now for the Bears.

6.02 James Williams RB Kansas City Chiefs - Andy

Would have been just as happy to land him with my 3rd pick, as I am to have played Russian roulette and nab him in the 6th. He was my overall 8th ranked RB heading into the draft, and I still love the upside. To pair him with Darwin Thompson makes me even more excited, to hopefully have at least one hit in that high-octane offense. 

6.03 Gary Jennings WR Seattle Seahawks – Joe G

Jennings is a versatile receiver with size and speed who has enjoyed success as both a heavily targeted pass catching threat as a junior (97 catches) and a deep ball threat as a senior (17 yards per catch average). He's an above average vertical route runner who can gradually develop into one of QB Russell Wilson's deep threat weapons.

6.04 Zach Gentry TE Pittsburgh Steelers – Joe P

At 6'8" 265 lbs. Gentry is a physical presence. He's a project, new to the TE position. Sometimes these projects fail, sometimes they become Antonio Gates.

If he somehow became a low end TE1, that would be his ceiling.

6.05 Oadree Ollison RB Atlanta Falcons – Jim

Ollison will need to improve in many facets to become a viable starter in the NFL and may start out on a practice squad, but the Atlanta depth chart at RB is very thin. If he can improve on his upright running style and pass protection, he may end up seeing work if Devonta Freeman once again misses time with injury. Don't forget that Ito Smith is coming off a knee scope as well.

6.06 Emmanuel Butler WR New Orleans Saints – Sigmund

Butler is a small school talent who offers the same type of size/speed package as Keith Kirkwood, who made the team last year after going undrafted, but with more fluid athleticism. The Saints generally know how to find undrafted talent at wide receiver and running back that they can use in their offense.

6.07 Tyree Jackson QB Buffalo Bills – Mike

Jackson's NFL lot has been cast as a developmental backup as he will work behind Josh Allen in Buffalo, where he played right down the street in college. Plenty of athleticism and arm strength is available with Jackson, but he will need to work on touch and shortening his delivery long term. His greatest Fantasy value will be for Josh Allen owners needing a handcuff as he ascends the depth chart with the Bills.

6.08 Marcus Green WR Atlanta Falcons – Corey

Green is a small wideout from a small school. He is also a burner who will be the last WR on the Falcons depth chart. His speed and playmaking ability will likely earn him a role as a punt or kick returner and it will take an injury for him to have Fantasy relevance. 

6.09 Caleb Wilson TE Arizona Cardinals – Bob L

Mr. Irrelevant! The OLD Arizona Cardinals didn't use a tight end much, but if Kliff Kingsbury drafts him for this new offense, well then, we might want to take notice! He could be more than irrelevant in 2019.

6.10 Ty Johnson RB Detroit Lions - Shane

The value is dead by the late 6th, but Ty Johnson impressed me at Maryland and I like his landing spot in Detroit. They do have Kerryon Johnson and a pair of older RBs in Theo Riddick (29) and CJ Anderson (28), but Johnson could fit into a Theo Riddick role should Riddick get injured or move on from the Lions in a year. It is a longshot, but Johnson has talent. At the 6.10, a back that could stick on a practice squad or slip onto a team as the 4th RB is likely as good as you will get.

6.11 Trevon Westco TE New York Jets – Dwain

Wesco is a Matt Waldman Rookie Scouting Portfolio favorite. My original targets in the previous two rounds were also RSP favorites - Preston Williams and Bruce Anderson. Unfortunately for me, Sigmund Bloom beat me to the punch on both players. I don't like Wesco's current landing spot with the Jets due to a four-lane pileup at tight end. However, Wesco provides versatility and will see looks from other positions like fullback. This pick will require patience, but Wesco's versatility will likely give him a shot to hang around the league a while allowing him a chance to flash.

6.12 Foster Moreau TE Oakland Raiders – Bob H

Moreau caught 52 passes for 629 yards and six touchdowns as a tight end in LSU's offense over the last four years. As NBCSports.com notes, the run-heavy approach in Baton Rouge gave Moreau plenty of opportunities to show off his ability as a blocker and that ability should serve him well as he looks for playing time early in his career in Oakland. The Raiders subsequent decision to release veteran Lee Smith works in the newcomers' favor.

 

I hope you enjoyed this mock and I want to thank all of the guys for joining me in putting this together. They were an excellent group of drafters and if you are not already following them all, you really need to do so.
