2011 NFL Draft Results, Round Five: Kealoha Pilares, Ahmad Black Join Jacquizz Rogers In NFC South

Go here for complete results from round five of the 2011 NFL Draft, but let's stick around and talk about the NFC South. It hasn't been a voluminous draft for the division, with only five players going through the first two rounds Saturday.

The Carolina Panthers added WR Kealoha Pilares, a quick Hawaii Warriors slot guy who's attempting to come back from an injury. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked up in-state talent Ahmad Black, the Florida Gators strong safety who's heard concerns about his size and strength, but is a capable athlete and smart player.

The Atlanta Falcons made the biggest splash in the round, trading up to get Oregon St. Beavers RB Jacquizz Rodgers.

We have more on the Falcons' first three rounds and on how SEC and ACC players fared in the first three rounds. For national coverage, check out SB Nation's NFL Draft hub and our NFL Draft blog Mocking the Draft. For more Atlanta Falcons draft discussion, join The Falcoholic.
