Arizona gets a nickel corner to compliment Patrick Peterson and Robert Alford. Blace Brown may not be starter material, however I'd argue he's got enough ability to push for a nickel corner spot on an organization that is dependant on Peterson and Alford at cornerback with no depth behind those two corners.
I had a second to third round grade on Givens at one point. Then I did his film cut versus Pittsburgh and saw how awful his tape was. At this point, he'd make a solid backup to Javon Hargrave as a nose tackle for Pittsburgh.
Keegan Render could be a future starter for New Orleans despite being a sixth round pick. I wasn't satisfied with what New Orleans did to replace Max Unger. They may be stuck at center until they find a new center through the draft.
Jacksonville got Taven Bryant in the 2018 NFL Draft to replace Malik Jackson. Some defensive tackle depth for Jacksonville this late wouldn't hurt. I like Slayton enough to be a future starter on Jacksonville at some point. He'd be a third or fourth rounder in any other year that didn't have as much depth at defensive tackle as this class.
Tytus Howard is a top 5 run blocker in this class and that's probably why Daniel Jeremiah has a second to third round grade on him. His pass blocking and lackluster foot speed along with the fact that he's a pure right tackle is why I have him graded this low. He probably goes earlier than this because people put more stock into DJ's opinion than mine, but this is the earliest I'd get Howard.
Terrell Hanks is a 4-3 right outside linebacker like Vontaze Burfict. There's no guarantee he'd start right away in Cincinnati. Hanks did well on tape in 2018 and had a solid week at the 2019 Senior Bowl. New Mexico State's linebacker is a terrific bargain for the Bengals in the sixth round.
Jalen Jelks can play 4-3 right outside linebacker or 3-4 right outside linebacker. Detroit runs a hybrid defense so Jelks will be an asset in the Motor City regardless of whether he starts or is utilized as a backup at this point in the sixth round.
Green Bay gets another cornerback for depth. Corey Ballard did well at the 2019 Senior Bowl and had a strong 2019 NFL Combine. Green Bay has a lot of talented young corners, but Ballard is someone who could push their current starrting cornerbacks even harder. My closing argument for Green Bay selecting Ballard is that he is a steal as far as value goes in the sixth round.
Carolina gets a starting defensive end to compliment 4-3 right end Mario Addison. The 6-6 280 lb defensive end had 14 tackles for a loss and 8 sacks in 2018. Bryant projects best as a 4-3 left end and may be an upgrade over everyone on Carolina's defensive line considering that Julius Peppers retired.
Carolina gets Austin Bryant here. Bryant is a project pass rusher at 4-3 left end. The fact that he challenged Boston College right guard Chris Lidstrom, who I am really high on does say a lot though.
Cleveland gets a backup middle linebacker for depth. Cameron Smith may lack the athleticism to start in the NFL. However, you could argue this is the right range for USC's former tackling machine who provides solid insurance for Cleveland.
Minnesota grabs the best player on the board. Shareef Miller is highway robbery at this juncture. Plus he makes a super special awesome replacement to Brian Robison as a depth player behind Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter.
Pittsburgh gets another wide receiver because they may need two wide receiver. Riley Ridley is the younger brother of Calvin Ridley. He doesn't have Ridley's speed or route tree, yet he's still considered a day 2 prospect mainly due to playing in the SEC.
Baltimore gets a pass rusher here who relies on his speed. Ximines is a sack artist, but he relies on his foot speed rather then his rip and swim moves. Most have a higher grade on Ximines. I see a day 3 pick from an intangibles standpoint despite seeing someone who may have day 2 athleticism. Finally, I also feel media members are overemphasizing the athleticism of Ximines and looking past some of his more evident flaws on tape. Maybe my assessment of Ximines will be wrong, but something didn't add up when I paid close attention to the edge rusher from Old Dominion.
New England got this compensation pick at 205 thanks to Dion Lewis signing with the Tennessee Titans. New England can use this pick to add more talent to their squad.
New England gets a successor to Devin McCourty. Marquise Blair took over for Marcus Williams at Utah, who has been solid with the New Orleans Saints so far. Blair is raw, but with the proper training could thrive as a successor to McCourty down the road.
Tampa Bay got this compensation pick at 208 thanks to Beau Allen signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This pick originally belonged to Philadelphia, but they gave it back to Tampa Bay for DeSean Jackson.
Eric Dungey is a perfect backup to Jameis Winston. I did a film cut of Dungey a while ago and love the idea of him being a backup to Jameis Winston.
Minnesota got this compensation pick at 209 thanks to Teddy Bridgewater signing with the New York Jets. New York managed to turn that signing into a third round pick while Minnesota got supplicative value.
Minnesota needs running back depth behind Dalvin Cook with Latavius Murray. Wes Hills out of Slippery Rock would be the first rock solid draft pick for Minnesota since Brandon Fusco.
Cincinnati got this compensation pick at 211 thanks to Andre Smith signing with the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona ended up cutting Andre Smith and Cincinnati ended up re-signing him before letting him go. Basically Cincinnati gave up nothing to get this pick.
Paul Adams is a good backup right tackle. He can fight for a roster spot here since he is the best player on the board.
Cincinnati got this compensation pick at 213 thanks to Chris Smith signing with the Cleveland Browns. Cincinnati getting better value with this compensation pick once again.
Cincinnati obtains defensive tackle depth. Demarcus Christmas is an absolute steal this late in the sixth round. He'd probably be a fourth round pick in any other draft class, but falls this far due to how deep and stacked the defensive tackle group is.
