NFL Mock Draft – Round 6
161. Texans: G Kadeem Edwards, Tennessee St (6’4, 309) - Long armed guard who helped his stock at the Senior Bowl. Will give the Texans some interior line depth in the short-term and has starter potential.
162. Redskins: G Spencer Long, Nebraska (6’4, 315) -Would of gone higher if not for an ACL injury late last season. Long, a former walk-on, is a two-time academic All-American who has been a solid run-blocker for the Huskers since he earned a starting spot in 2012. His pass blocking needs work, but it’s not hopeless.
163. Jaguars: WR Mike Davis, Texas (6’0, 193) – Davis was hindered by inconsistent QB play at Texas, but showed off good hands and crisp route-running at the Senior Bowl. Davis is more quick than fast, but could be a solid possession receiver for the Jags.
164. Browns: ILB Max Bullough, Midchigan St (6’3, 265) – It’s been a tumultuous last few months for Bullough; He was suspended for MSU’s bowl game for undisclosed reasons and then showed up to Senior Bowl practices noticeably overweight. His draft stock has slipped a little, but after viewing his game tape, he deserves to be drafted. Bullough was the leader of one of the best defenses in the country and is a force vs the run. He shows good timing and burst through holes to stuff plays at the LOS and is a heavy hitter with better than expected range sideline to sideline. He struggles in coverage and is probably just a 2-down LB, but he can be a quality run-stuffer as a 3-4 ILB right away.
165. Raiders: T Wesley Johnson, Vanderbilt (6’5, 290) – Too small to play LT like he did at Vandy, but has great feet and an innate understanding of blocking angles. Whether he ends up as a RT or inside as a Guard, Johnson should eventually be in the starting lineup somewhere.
166. Falcons: RB Charles Sims, West Virginia (6’0, 214) – Atlanta gets a steal with Sims this late in the draft. Viewed as a 3rd down back coming into the Senior Bowl, Sims changed some minds with power running, smooth hands out of the backfield, and good enough pass protection. Sims drew comparisons to Matt Forte, Shane Vereen, and DeMarco Murray from various analysts. High praise, Sims will probably go higher than this.
