Round Six pick-by-pick analysis

Round Six pick-by-pick analysis

By Jeff Reynolds | NFLDraftScout.com

171. St. Louis Rams: K Greg Zuerlein, Missouri Western -- The star of the St. Louis regional pro day, Zuerlein also booted multiple field goals of 55-plus yards in private workouts. He led the NCAA with 2.3 made field goals per game last season.

172. Seattle Seahawks: CB Jeremy Lane, NW State (La.) -- A Texas product who was recruited to run track and has the arm strength to excel in a bump scheme. More than held his own vs. LSU, and hits with a purpose.

173. Washington Redskins: RB Alfred Morris, Florida Atlantic -- A tough runner and good fit in the one-cut system the Redskins employ, and this regime has mined several good RB finds (Terrell Davis) in this round.

174. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Keith Tandy, West Virginia -- All-Big East cornerback with size to cover No. 1 receivers and nose for the ball.

175. Minnesota Vikings: PK Blair Walsh, Georgia -- Strong-legged kicker with range up to 58 yards and reliable inside 40 yards but can overswing and was susceptible to cold streaks.

176. Jacksonville Jaguars: CB Mike Harris, Florida State -- A nickel cornerback and heady player with ability to blitz.

177. Arizona Cardinals: DB Justin Bethel, Presbyterian -- Workout warrior had a nearly 40-inch vertical and at 200 pounds has the natural ability to play safety.

178. Buffalo Bills: OT Mark Asper, Oregon -- At 27 years old, he's close to being maxed out as a player. Has the frame to play guard or tackle. Athleticism stood out at Oregon.

179. New Orleans Saints: OG Andrew Tiller, Syracuse -- Plodding blocker, leans more than he explodes into blockers, and adequate athletic ability makes him a long shot.

180. San Francisco 49ers: S Trent Robinson, Michigan State -- A defensive leader with smooth hips to cover and attack the ball vs. run and pass.

181. Seattle Seahawks: LB Winston Guy, Kentucky -- A hard-hitting safety early in his career, Guy became an outside linebacker and brings the versatility coveted from the 53rd man on the roster.

182. Kansas City Chiefs: RB Cyrus Gray, Texas A&M -- Gray's vision and patience make him effective even with average speed. Can also contribute in the passing game.

183. Miami Dolphins: WR B.J. Cunningham, Michigan State -- At 6-1, 211, Cunningham's surprising quickness and balance made him a nice fit in the Dolphins' West Coast offense.

184. Chicago Bears: CB Isaiah Frey, Nevada -- Tall, linear athlete who ran a 4.45 40, boasts quick reaction and suddenness to be fit in Cover Two.

185. Arizona Cardinals: QB Ryan Lindley, San Diego State -- Rocket-armed passer with better-than-ideal size and hands, his spray-gun accuracy sinks him to developmental status.

186. Dallas Cowboys: TE James Hanna, Oklahoma -- A vertical threat at tight end, Hanna ran a 4.49 40-yard dash. His soft hands and team-first approach can keep him on the roster.

187. New York Jets: S Josh Bush, New York Jets -- Not invited to postseason all-star game or the Combine, Bush was a popular player in recent months because of his CB/FS skill set.

188. Denver Broncos: LB Danny Trevathan, Kentucky -- Scrappy, undersized all-energy player will have to add weight and functional strength to avoid being streamrolled in the running game.

189. Oakland Raiders: DL Christo Bilukidi, Georgia State -- Canadian (Ottawa) product follows third-rounder Akiem Nicks as a size projection prospect with long-term upside.

190. Tennessee Titans: FS Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State -- A three-year starter whose athleticism doesn't translate to the NFL. Could be a special teamer, third or fourth safety.

191. Cincinnati Bengals: RB Dan Herron, Ohio State -- Thick-legged tackle-breaking backup running back similar to new starter BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

192. Atlanta Falcons: DB Charles Mitchell, Mississippi State -- Has experience at cornerback and safety; good potential as a groomable cornerback behind Asante Samuel and Brent Grimes.

193. Washington Redskins: OT Tom Compton, South Dakota -- Untested against NFL-caliber defensive ends, Compton is a good enough athlete to survive until he becomes comfortable in Washington's offense.

194. Philadelphia Eagles: WR Marvin McNutt, Iowa -- A West Coast-versed receiver with adequate speed; willing to lay out for his quarterback to make tough catches in traffic, take away interceptions.

195. Houston Texans: OT Nick Mondek, Purdue -- Light anchor but height and long arms to play right tackle in the bootleg-based offense of the Texans.

196. Detroit Lions: CB Jonte Green, New Mexico State -- Resilient cornerback who had 14 passes defensed and two interceptions last season, timed in the sub-4.4 second range in the 40.

197. New England Patriots: S Nate Ebner, Ohio State -- Converted rugby player who didn't play high school football is still learning intricacies of base defense, was special-teams demon for Buckeyes.

198. Baltimore Ravens: WR Tommy Streeter, Miami (Fla.) -- Green, 6-5, 220-pound speedster with fourth receiver skill set entering the league.

199. San Francisco 49ers: OL Jason Slowey, Western Oregon -- Swift and heady, with 32 career starts at left tackle, projects inside in the NFL.

200. Philadelphia Eagles: OG Brandon Washington, Miami (Fla.) -- Early entry with size and potential after starting at left tackle last season for the Hurricanes.

201. New York Giants: OT Matt McCants, UAB -- Wall-off blocker with size but lacks functional strength to start in the NFL.

202. New York Jets: RB Terrance Ganaway, Baylor -- Versatile runner and receiver capable of being a third running back and returner.

203. New York Jets: OG Robert T. Griffin, Baylor -- No relation to RG3, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, RTG was a junior-college transfer who survive on his size to date.

204. Cleveland Browns: OLB Emmanuel Acho, Texas -- In-the-box linebacker with run-stuffer's mentality and natural blitz ability.

205. Cleveland Browns: DT Billy Winn, Boise State -- Brings size, speed and powerful hands to excel as a 3-4 defensive end.

206. Indianapolis Colts: WR Lavon Brazill, Ohio -- Four-year starter with return skills and good attention to detail; similar to FIU's T.Y. Hilton, drafted by the Colts in the third round, Brazill must show he was more than a big fish in a small pond in a non-FBS conference.

207. Carolina Panthers: P Brad Nortman, Wisconsin -- Good athlete with a booming leg and proven directional skills to become a field-position weapon.
