Jon Dove, MockingTheDraft.com - Round 6
No. 166: Panthers select: Lawrence Wilson, OLB, Connecticut Grade
Wilson- Wilson is a bit undersized but he has good athletic ability. He has sideline to sideline speed.
No. 167: Bengals select: Ryan Whalen, WR, Stanford Grade
Whalen is a smart player with the ability to play early. He is a good slot option that can find openings in the zone.
No. 168: Vikings select: DeMarcus Love, OT, Arkansas Grade
This is a steal as Love has good abilities. He isnt quick enough to pass protect as a tackle and will have to move inside to guard.
No. 169: Bills select: Chris White, ILB, Mississippi State Grade
Again the Bills continue their defensive upgrades. White will be an inside linebacker in Buffalo.
No. 170: Vikings select: Mistral Raymond, FS, South Florida Grade
Raymond is a good athlete that has some potential.
No. 171: Cardinals select: Quan Sturdivant, ILB, North Carolina Grade
Nice value here in the 6th round as Sturdivant is a good football player. The Cardinals need player at linebacker.
No. 172: Vikings select: Brandon Fusco, C, Slippery Rock Grade
Some felt that Fusco could land in the 3rd round. He can play either guard or center.
No. 173: Seahawks select: Byron Maxwell, CB, Clemson Grade
A hardnosed football player that isnt afraid to make a tackle. He has a real nose for the football.
No. 174: Dolphins select: Charles Clay, FB, Tulsa Grade
This is a player that can fill a few roles. He can be a tight end or a fullback with good hands and decent speed.
No. 175: Titans select: Byron Stingily, OT, Louisville Grade
This is a developmental type player that has limited upside.
No. 176: Cowboys select: Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina Grade
This is a guy that could have gone earlier but lands in Dallas. He will likely fight for a job as a slot receiver..
No. 177: Redskins select: Evan Royster, RB, Penn State Grade
A bit of a surprise pick here as Royster wasnt getting much buzz. He is a tough runner w/ limited speed.
No. 178: Redskins select: Aldrick Robinson, WR, Southern Methodist Grade
Robinson has some buzz early in the process but slipped a little when he ran a poor 40 time.
No. 179: Packers select: Caleb Schlauderaff, OG, Utah Grade
This is a smart player that will be asked to bring depth to the Packers roster.
No. 180: Ravens select: Tyrod Taylor, QB, Virginia Tech Grade
There are questions about what position Taylor will play in the NFL. He is determined to develop as a quarterback.
No. 181: Raiders select: Richard Gordon, WR, Miami (Fla.) Grade
The Raiders dont have much depth behind Zach Miller. Gordon has some upside.
No. 182: 49ers select: Ronald Johnson, WR, Southern California Grade
Johnson never lived up to his talent level but was productive. He isnt a burner but has enough speed to make plays.
No. 183: Chargers select: Jordan Todman, RB, Connecticut Grade
Todman is a player that will bring some speed and pass catching ability to the Chargers.
No. 184: Cardinals select: David Carter, DT, UCLA Grade
A good all around defensive tackle but not elite at anything.
No. 185: Giants select: Greg Jones, ILB, Michigan State Grade
Greg Jones is a productive player that lacks the measurables to be an elite player.
No. 186: Packers select: D.J. Smith , OLB, Appalachian State Grade
The Packers are looking for linebackers that can help out with their pass rush. Smith has good speed but is a bit raw.
No. 187: Buccaneers select: Allen Bradford, RB, Southern California Grade
Tampa struck gold with Blount last season but his off the field issues are still a concern. Bradford is the same type of tough runner.
No. 188: Colts select: Chris L. Rucker , CB, Michigan State Grade
Rucker is a good football player that has a chance to develop into a starter in the NFL.
No. 189: Broncos select: Mike Mohamed, ILB, California Grade
Mike Mohammed is limited as an athlete but is a smart football player. He will likely make an impact on special teams.
No. 190: 49ers select: Colin Jones, SS, TCU Grade
Jones is a tough football player that will be fighting for a spot in the secondary. He will play strong saftey.
No. 191: Eagles select: Jason Kelce, C, Cincinnati Grade
The Eagles are still focusing on the interior of their offensive line. Kelce doesnt represent much upside and is limited as an athlete.
No. 192: Falcons select: Matt Bosher, P, Miami (Fla.) Grade
I always feel that it is a reach to select punter or kicker in the draft. Unless they are special talents.
No. 193: Eagles select: Brian Rolle, OLB, Ohio State Grade
Rolle is not an everydown linebacker because of his lack of size. He is a guy that is good in coverage and has good speed.
No. 194: Patriots select: Markell Carter, DE, Central Arkansas Grade
At this point in the draft teams are looking for players that might make their roster. Carter has some talent and could develop.
No. 195: Bears select: J.T. Thomas, OLB, West Virginia Grade
The Bears linebackers are getting up there in age. Thomas has some potential but will have to fight to make the roster.
No. 196: Steelers select: Keith Williams, OG, Nebraska Grade
Nebraska linemen know how to run block and that is what Williams can do. He fits the Steelers scheme well.
No. 197: Packers select: Ricky Elmore, DE, Arizona Grade
Good pick for the Packers as they get a guy that can create pressure off the edge.
No. 198: Giants select: Tyler Sash, SS, Iowa Grade
Sash is a playmaker that has great instincts. He is a limited athlete but knows how to take good angles.
No. 199: Chiefs select: Jerrell Powe, DT, Mississippi Grade
Powe is an ideal nose tackle and has a chance to play early in Kansas City. He struggles with his weight and effort.
No. 200: Vikings select: Ross Homan, OLB, Ohio State Grade
Homan is a good fit for the Vikings as he is a smart player. He has good instincts and is always around the ball.
No. 201: Chargers select: Stephen Schilling, OG, Michigan Grade
This is a guy that could have gone higher. He has a limited celling but is an overall decent player.
No. 202: Giants select: Jacquian Williams, OLB, South Florida Grade
The Giants have a need at the linebacker position so this is a need selection.
No. 203: Panthers select: Zach Williams, C, Washington State Grade
Williams represents some interior line depth. He doesnt have a lot of upside.
