Bob Quinn’s Best Draft Picks – Fifth Round
As we move closer to the round one selection, things get more interesting because players have contributed more and generally are more talented.
Seven men have been selected in this late-middle round and include guard Joe Dahl, wide receiver/ kick returner/ cornerback Jamal Agnew, tackle Tyrell Crosby, 2019 rookie cornerback Amani Oruwariye, and the two 2020 signees wide receiver Quintez Cephus and running back Jason Huntley.
The rookies from the last two years are going to have to wait until after they get playing time to move up the list but there’s some potential, for sure.
Agnew made a Pro-Bowl as a return man. Dahl has been a starter at guard and a depth player there since he was drafted in 2016, starting 17 games in 35 appearances. Crosby has been the swing tackle for the past two years and will compete for the right tackle position after playing in 26 games and starting seven already.
This is tight. Right this second, we’re going to say Dahl gets the nod as the best so far but he has been unspectacular and will be very vulnerable to losing this spot to some of the younger guys on the roster. He is slated to be a starter this year but the Detroit Lions also drafted two guards in rounds three and four, Jonah Jackson and Logan Stenberg, respectively.
