110. Dallas Cowboys - Derek Newton OG/OT, Arkansas State
Kyle Kosier is a 32-year-old free agent.

 

111. Miami Dolphins - Vincent Brown WR, San Diego State
If they can't replace Chad Henne they can at least give him some more weapons.

 

112. St. Louis Rams - Joe Lefeged S, Rutgers
St. Louis needs to replace O.J. Atogwe.

 

113. Oakland Raiders - Ryan Bartholomew OC, Syracuse
Samson Satele is a free agent and Bartholomew is a combine warrior.

Casey Wiegmann will be 38 years old this season.

Indy needs an upgrade over Ryan Diem at RT and over Mike Pollack at RG.

The Jets have a lot of age issues on the D-line.

 

127. Chicago Bears - Austin Pettis WR, Boise State
Chicago lacks a legitimate number one WR.

 

128. Pittsburgh Steelers - Stephen Burton WR, West Texas A&M

This pick is likely to garner a lot of chatter from those of you in Steelers Nation but if you really think about it it'll make some sense. Recently the Steelers have made a habit of taking speedy WR's in the middle rounds. Mike Wallace, Emanuel Sanders, and Antonio Brown are all examples of this. So you ask, "Why would they take another one when they've already got enough on the roster?" Well this will most likely be Hines Ward's final go-around, it would be shocking if Limas Sweed made it out of the preseason, and A.R.L. will probably be cut as well. Burton had a phenomenal Pro Day, running a 4.38 40-time with a 1.46 10-yard split at 6'1", 224lbs. which is very Mike Wallace-like and he represents a greater value than any of the available OG's or CB's.

 

129. Green Bay Packers - DeMarco Murray RB, Oklahoma
James Starks has injury issues, Brandon Jackson is a free agent, and Ryan Grant is in the final year of his contract and has injury issues of his own as well.

 

130. (Compensatory pick) Tennessee Titans - Greg Romeus DE, Pittsburgh
Jason Babin is a 31 year old free agent who is likely seeking a big contract.

 

131. (Compensatory pick) Green Bay Packers - Dwayne Harris WR/KR, East Carolina
Donald Driver may retire after finally winning a Super Bowl and James Jones is a free agent.

 

****************

133. Buffalo Bills - Bruce Miller DE/OLB, Central Florida
Aaron Maybin has the look for a bust and needs to be replaced.

 

134. Cincinnati Bengals - Robert Sands SS, West Virginia
Robert Sands is a good fit for Cincy's defense.

 

135. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Denver Broncos) - Kendall Hunter RB, Oklahoma State
With LeGarrette Blount as the starting RB Tampa needs a cheaper back-up and third-down back than pending free agent Cadillac Williams.

 

136. Arizona Cardinals - Greg Salas WR, Hawaii
Steve Breaston and Early Doucet are both injury-prone free agents, and Larry Fitzgerald will be a free agent next year.

Houston needs two OLB's for their conversion to a 3-4 defense.

Antoine Winfield is 34 years old and Cedric Griffin has injury issues.

 

140. Kansas City Chiefs (via Detroit Lions) - Nathan Enderle, QB, Idaho

They drafted one CB to replace Nate Clements now they take another one to replace the inconsistent Shawntae Spencer.

 

142. Tennessee Titans - Lee Ziemba OG, Auburn

149. Philadelphia Eagles (via San Diego Chargers) - Jacquizz Rodgers RB, Oregon State
Jerome Harrison is a free agent.

 

150. Minnesota Vikings (via New York Giants) - Julius Thomas TE, Portland State
Visanthe Shiancoe will be a free agent next year and was terrible in 2010.

 

151. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Colin McCarthy LB, Miami
Both Barrett Rudd and Quincy Black are free agents so the Bucs may take two Linebackers.

 

152. Indianapolis Colts - Cedric Thornton DE/DT, Southern Arkansas
Indy could use an upgrade over Fili Moala and especially Daniel Muir.

 

153. Philadelphia Eagles - Ricky Stanzi QB, Iowa
With Kevin Kolb as good as traded Andy Reid will need another young QB to groom for the future.

161. New York Jets - Josh Davis OT, UGA
The Jets cut Damien Woody.

 

162. Pittsburgh Steelers - Derrick Locke RB, Kentucky
Mewelde Moore is a 29 year old free agent who is clearly on the decline. Locke is a big playmaker who can take it to the house any time he touches the ball.

 

163. Green Bay Packers - Anthony Gray NT, Southern Miss
The Packers could use defensive line depth with Johnny Jolly in constant trouble and Cullen Jenkins a free agent.

 

164. (Compensatory pick) Baltimore Ravens - Buster Skrine CB, UT-Chattanooga
The Ravens may double-dip at CB with three pending free agents at the position.

 

165. (Compensatory pick) Baltimore Ravens - Mark Herzlich ILB, Boston College
Baltimore needs some competition with Jameel McClain and an heir to Ray Lewis at ILB. Herzlich still needs time to regain his form after coming back from cancer but is a high character guy and worth the chance at the end of the 5th round.
