Pro Football Weekly's Fifth-Round Value Chart

The Eagles have been able to secure quality starting talent on both sides of the ball in the fifth round from Pro Bowl defensive end Trent Cole to tight end Brent Celek in the draft. Who could be the next impact player for the Eagles to be selected in the fifth round? Pro Football Weekly evaluated the prospects in this year's draft class and assigned each player a round where he should be picked as well as what part of the round.

This is not a mock draft. Different teams are going to have different grades based on their evaluation of the player and where that player fits into its scheme. And there may not be enough prospects worth filling out an entire round of the draft. Just because there are 32 picks in the first round, it doesn't mean that teams will have 32 players with a first-round grade.

The Eagles currently have two fifth-round selections in this week's draft - San Diego's pick which was sent to the Eagles in a draft-day trade last year (No. 149 overall) and their own (No. 153).

Let's take a look at the players projected to go in the fifth round. You never know which one - or two or three - of these players could be in midnight green by the end of the weekend.
