2014 NFL Mock Draft Update: Sixth Round Rush

Day 3 is beginning to wind down but the 2014 NFL mock draft won’t quit.  How are teams switching up their plans this late?

To review the previous rounds, click below.  Enjoy!

Round 1

Round 2

Round 3

Round 4

Round 5

#177. Houston Texans - Anthony Denham – TE – Utah

He needs to pack on some weight but the Houston Texans will love the size-speed-hands combination Anthony Denham offers.

#178. Washington Redskins - Anthony Steen – OG – Alabama

An injury hurt his status in this 2014 NFL mock draft but Anthony Steen was the best guard at Alabama.  Good value for the Washington Redskins.

#179. St. Louis Rams (f/JAX) – Khairi Fortt – OLB – Cal

Trade: 179th pick to Rams for 188th and 226th (7th) picks

Already a solid outside linebacker, Khairi Fortt has the versatility to shift inside as well.  A real upside pick for the St. Louis Rams.

#180. Cleveland Browns - Cassius Marsh – DE – UCLA

Cassius Marsh played everywhere up front for UCLA.  Classic effort player and brings power off the edge.

#181. Houston Texans (f/OAK) - Avery Williamson – ILB – Kentucky

Brian Cushing can’t stay healthy for the Houston Texans.  Avery Williamson offers valuable insurance at inside linebacker.

#182. Atlanta Falcons - Deion Belue – CB – Alabama

Injuries hurt his stock but Alabama corner Deion Belue is tough and has the skill set to fit with the Atlanta Falcons defense.

#183. San Francisco 49ers (f/CHI) – Jonotthan Harrison – C – Florida

Trade:  183rd pick to 49ers for 242nd (7th), 243rd (7th) and 245th (7th) picks

This is a tremendous sleeper pickup for the San Francisco 49ers.  Jonotthan Harrison is a powerful center built for their scheme with great starter potential.

#184. Minnesota Vikings - Isaiah Lewis – SS – Michigan State

He was overlooked on that stout MSU defense but Isaiah Lewis is a physical safety who tackles and would fit well next to Harrison Smith for the Minnesota Vikings.

#185. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (f/BUF) – Jake Murphy – TE – Utah

Coming from a BYU-type school means Jake Murphy is older than most prospects but he’s also a highly underrated tight end who offers the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass catching talent.

#186. Tennessee Titans - Keith Wenning – QB – Ball State

Jake Locker is no guarantee but the Tennessee Titans seem content to give him another chance.  Still, they need a reliable backup just in case.  Keith Wenning has the traits.

#187. New York Giants - De’Anthony Thomas – RB – Oregon

Rashad Jennings will tote the primary carries with David Wilson but the New York Giants can’t turn down more explosion at running back with De’Anthony Thomas.

#188. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/STL) - Logan Thomas – QB – Virginia Tech

Logan Thomas is an intriguing athletic specimen with great long-term potential on offense, not just quarterback.  The Jacksonville Jaguars can afford to wait.

#189. Detroit Lions - Bryan Stork – C – Florida State

Dominic Raiola is back but the center position isn’t completely secure for the Detroit Lions.  Bryan Stork has the size, technique and smarts to become a starter.

#190. Miami Dolphins - Gabe Ikard – C – Oklahoma

Problems continue to hamper Mike Pouncey and the Miami Dolphins.  With his future in question, grabbing a technically-sound, determined kid like Gabe Ikard is sound thinking.

#191. Chicago Bears – Marcel Jensen – TE – Fresno State

Primarily a blocker at FresnoState, Marcel Jensen offers terrific upside as a pass catcher for the Chicago Bears.

#192. Pittsburgh Steelers - Matt Pachan – OT – Boston College

The starters seem set but the Pittsburgh Steelers need depth at tackle.  Matt Pachan had a great combine and has very good physical tools.

#193. Kansas City Chiefs (f/DAL) - A.C. Leonard – TE – Tennessee St.

Inconsistency at tight end hurt the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013.  A.C. Leonard is an big athlete who can create plays after the catch.

#194. Baltimore Ravens - Brandon Dixon – CB – NW Missouri St.

A small school sleeper, Brandon Dixon has all the makings of a classic 3-4 corner with the added toughness to shift to safety.

#195. New York Jets - Andrew Jackson – ILB – Western Kentucky

Inside linebacker continues to underachieve for the New York Jets.  Andrew Jackson is a physical tackler with good lateral range who fits a 3-4 scheme.

#196. Arizona Cardinals - James White – RB – Wisconsin

Running back still needs more work for the Arizona Cardinals.  James White is undersized but runs with good power and competes in pass protection.

#197. Green Bay Packers - Gregory Ducre – CB – Washington

Decry is 5’10″ frame all you want, cornerback Gregory Ducre is a supreme athlete who can tackle and make big plays in coverage.  The Green Bay Packers can use him.

#198. New England Patriots (f/PHI) - Todd Washington – CB – SE Louisiana

Bill Belichick loves physical corners for the New England Patriots.  Todd Washington excels in that style but needs to develop.  Good special teamer too.

#199. Cincinnati Bengals - Aaron Colvin – CB – Oklahoma

A torn ACL ruined his draft stock but before that Aaron Colvin was looked at as one of the best zone corners in the draft.  The Cincinnati Bengals can afford the risk.

#200. Kansas City Chiefs - John Urschel – OG – Penn State

Outstanding intelligence and technique overcomes some physical drawbacks for John Urschel.  The Kansas City Chiefs can plug him at guard or even center.

#201. San Diego Chargers - Jalen Saunders – WR – Oklahoma

Philip Rivers probably still misses Darren Sproles and what he brought the San Diego Chargers.  Jalen Saunders will bring back some of those memories.

#202. New Orleans Saints - Chris Boswell – K – Rice

Kicking was a real headache for the New Orleans Saints in 2013.  So Shayne Graham, at age 36, can expect competition.  Chris Boswell is the most physically gifted in this 2014 NFL mock draft.

#203. Indianapolis Colts - Shaquil Barrett – OLB – Colorado St.

Athletically, Shaquil Barrett looks somewhat awkward at outside linebacker but the Indianapolis Colts will soon see he simply finds ways to the quarterback.

#204. Carolina Panthers - Bene Benwikere – CB – San Jose St.

More help at corner is warranted for the Carolina Panthers.  Bene Benwikere is a fit for their system given his zone awareness and knack for stealing the football.

#205. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/SF) - Mike Davis – WR – Texas

Gus Bradley knows how to handle questionable personalities.  Mike Davis is an intriguing athlete at wide receiver but needs to be under a good head coach to thrive.

#206. New England Patriots - Richard Rodgers – TE – Cal

The New England Patriots double down at tight end.  Richard Rodgers took awhile to find his niche but he clearly has upside as a big pass catcher.

#207. Denver Broncos - Steele Divitto – ILB – Boston College

A solid pro day workout eased fears about his foot speed and Steele Divitto has the smarts and strength to fill the middle for the Denver Broncos.

#208. Seattle Seahawks - Trey Burton – TE – Florida

Not quite big enough for classic tight end, Trey Burton is nonetheless a great athlete for his size whom the Seattle Seahawks can find many uses for.

#209. New York Jets (comp) - Kain Colter – WR – Northwestern

A very versatile player, Kain Colter has all the tools including the hands of a wide receiver but played quarterback at Northwestern.

#210. New York Jets (comp) - Brett Smith – QB – Wyoming

The Jets continue to add to their quarterback competition.  Brett Smith has inconsistent tape due to a bad offensive line but he has the arm, mobility and work ethic you look for.

#211. Houston Texans (comp) – Jon Halapio – OG – Florida

Big, hulking guard with long arms who functions very well in pass protection and never stops battling.

#212. Cincinnati Bengals (comp) - Kevin Pierre-Louis – OLB – Boston College

A combine home run, Kevin Pierre-Louis is a speed linebacker who functions best in open space where he can run and hit.  The Bengals have need for such a player.

#213. New York Jets (comp) - Joe Don Duncan – TE – Dixie St.

Breaking his foot before the Senior Bowl was a tough pill to swallow but Joe Don Duncan is an intriguing small school talent with great upside if he stays healthy.

#214. St. Louis Rams (comp) – Jay Prosch – FB – Auburn

Jeff Fisher is an old school guy who loves power running.  So the fullback position won’t be dead to him.  Jay Prosch isn’t fancy, but he can blow open holes for his running backs.

#215. Pittsburgh Steelers (comp) – Shaquille Richardson – CB – Arizona

A very interesting big and agile athelte from Arizona, Shaquille Richardson has flashed plenty of potential as a press corner.  Proper development can uncover a gem.

  • Guy Smith

    Morons, where are the Cowboys picks?? Isnt this a Dallas site??

    • Erik Lambert

      Dallas traded their 6th round pick to Kansas City, Guy.

  • BlueBoltFan

    Well done again with Jalen Saunders to the Bolts. Liking your draft more and more.

    • Erik Lambert

      Happy to hear it!

  • Jarod Cook

    The Browns have pretty good depth at the DL, would rather see them take QB Brett Smith. And add a little more competition to the QB position. He’s like a small school Manziel, and wasn’t helped much by the talent around him. Has all the things you look for in a late round QB, and as you pointed out has a second to none work ethic. He can be a late round gem, if he develops properly.

    • Erik Lambert

      Don’t count me out yet.

      • Jarod Cook

        Can’t wait to see round 7. Better make it good, so far you have the Browns killing it.

        • Erik Lambert

          Challenge accepted.

  • bk

    If this is the Steelers draft it’s gonna be a long, long couple of seasons… Colt Lyerla as the only receiving help and in rd 3? Street, Richardson, Ellington and Fiedorowicz still on the board there… rd 4 a DE? With Wr Abedreris (Sp?) and Huff sitting there with DeA THomas too? RD5 a safety iwth those same players and Smallwood available? RD 6… ok, but if you need wr’s becasue of the earlier picks and Saunders is there or Rogers TE? Even Colvin or Benewerke… ugh… thank goodness it’s only a mock draft, but, in reality it had TOmlin written all over it. Do you think A. Brown will ever see single coverage again….?

  • Scott Norris

    Hartley was released by the Saints last year, Shayne Graham was re-signed. The Saints won’t be drafting a kicker, in my opinion anyway.

    • Erik Lambert

      Oops. Got my notes mixed up. Will correct that explanation.

  • Greg

    Tampa Bay has Buffalo’s 6th round pick the year with the Mike Williams trade.

    • Erik Lambert

      Already corrected it. Meant to type Bucs but did Bills by accident.

  • Avian Carpenter

    This mocks is bull shit get a new job go saints

    • Erik Lambert

      There aren’t many holes on that roster, Avian. Kicker is one of them and they’ve learned in this league a championship can mean the difference on the right or left foot of that position. Shayne Graham played for three different teams in 2013 and a ton more over his career. He’s also 36-years old. This is a pick they can afford.

    • brian mckendry

      thanks avian for sharing all your wonderful nfl knowledge

  • Avian Carpenter

    None of the team

  • Avian Carpenter

    None of the team needs are met in this mock draft

    • Erik Lambert

      To my understanding their top three needs according to NFL .com is cornerback, offensive line, and outside linebacker. I added Bradley Roby in the first for corner, Jackson Jeffcoat for outside linebacker in the 3rd and Tyler Larsen in the 5th at center which is their biggest O-line need. I disagree with your assessment.

  • Avian Carpenter

    Top needs are 1st WR 2 ‘RB 3′CB 4′ILB 5′OLB

    • Erik Lambert

      Got Jordan Matthews in the 2nd and Preston Brown in the 3rd for those other needs you listed.

  • Avian Carpenter

    and maybe a center

  • Avian Carpenter

    i’m hoping that the saints resign center jonathan goodwin

  • Avian Carpenter

    RB maybe the biggest need we have to replace Darren Sproles because cadet is not the answer so RB in round 3 or4

  • David Mallow

    love the Isiah Lewis pick for the Vikings. he is a physical, very talented safety… great pick

  • James Mullen

    So, if the Jaguars trade the 179th pick to the Rams for picks 188 & 226, how do the Rams choose Ricardo Allen with the 226th pick?
