PFF’s Top 10 Fifth-Round Picks, 2008-2012 - Rick Drummond
There were, however, a group of notable fifth-round picks who struck gold for the teams that selected them and some who, in their first years, have sown promise of great things to come. With that, this look at the Top 10 Fifth-Round Picks from the 2008 to 2012 draft classes:
