Live 2013 NFL Draft Grades: Round 6



These Live 2013 NFL Draft Grades will be posted minutes after each pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Follow @walterfootball for updates.

2014 NFL Draft Grades - Round: Picks 1-16 | Picks 17-32 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | Team Grades
  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Josh Evans, S, Florida: A- Grade
    This is Jacksonville's second safety, but that's something that was needed because of the lacking depth there. Josh Evans could have been a fourth-rounder, so this is good value for him.

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Kush, C, California-Pa.: C Grade
    Eric Kush wasn't considered draftable by most, but it's the sixth round. The Chiefs need to bring in interior offensive line depth just in case they can't get Ryan Lilja to return.

  3. Detroit Lions: Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech: B- Grade
    I'm surprised the Lions waited this long for a receiver. I feel like there were better options than Corey Fuller, but this is still a fine pick. It's just disappointing that Detroit couldn't secure a solid No. 2 option across from Calvin Johnson.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado: B+ Grade
    The Raiders really wanted a tight end earlier, but they're definitely fine with Nick Kasa here, who fits the range. Oakland lost Brandon Myers to the Giants, so Kasa could start this year.



  5. Denver Broncos: Vinston Painter, OT, Virginia Tech: A- Grade
    The Broncos didn't really have a quality third tackle prior to the 2013 NFL Draft, so Vinston Painter makes sense. I had Painter pegged as a Round 4-5 prospect, so this is nice value.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M: A+ Grade
    Mike Jurecki said that the Cardinals were prepared to take Marquise Goodwin on Day 2, so Arizona deserves major credit for waiting until the sixth round for an equal prospect. Swope fell because of injury concerns, but he's still a steal for the Cardinals.

  7. Cleveland Browns: Jamoris Slaughter, S, Notre Dame: B- Grade
    The Browns had to find some competition for the safety spot next to T.J. Ward. This is a slight reach for Jamoris Slaughter, but that's not that big of a deal in the sixth round.

  8. Oakland Raiders: David Quessenberry, OT/G/C, San Jose State: A Grade
    It's shocking to me that such a versatile offensive lineman fell this far. I thought David Quessenberry would be a Round 3-4 selection for sure. He can play anywhere up front.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Dustin Hopkins, K, Florida State: D Grade
    Rian Lindell, who signed a 4-year contract last season, went 21-of-24 in 2012. That means Dustin Hopkins will probably be just a kickoff specialist. Wasted pick.

  10. New York Jets: William Campbell, DT, Michigan: C+ Grade
    I mocked William Campbell to the Jets in the seventh round at one point, so this pick makes sense to me. He's another interior lineman, but he's much different than Sheldon Richardson.

  11. San Diego Chargers: Tourek Williams, DE, Connecticut: B Grade
    The Chargers had tons of holes on their roster, including one at the rush linebacker position. Shaun Phillips is gone, so perhaps Tourek Williams can eventually win the job across from Melvin Ingram. Williams fits the range as a sixth-round prospect.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Moody, ILB, Florida State: B- Grade
    The 49ers are obviously set with their starting inside linebackers, but they had to find some depth at some point in the 2013 NFL Draft. Nick Moody is a slight reach, but that's not a big concern in the middle of Round 6.



  13. Oakland Raiders: Latavius Murray, RB, Central Florida: B Grade
    Darren McFadden will get injured at some point during the 2013 season, so the Raiders need a solid running back to step in. Murray, perceived to be a sixth-round prospect by many, is a larger back who should be able to pass the mediocre Rashad Jennings on the depth chart at some point.

  14. Carolina Panthers: Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon: B Grade
    DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart are both immensely overpaid, so one of them will have to go soon. Once that happens, Kenjon Barner will be a nice change-of-pace back. No surprise that he went around the sixth frame.

  15. New Orleans Saints: Rufus Johnson, DE/OLB, Tarleton State: C Grade
    Rufus Johnson is the first rush linebacker drafted by the Saints, and it's a bit surprising that they waited this long for one. Johnson wasn't deemed a draftable prospect, so this is a pretty big reach.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Mychal Rivera, TE, Tennessee: B Grade
    Two tight ends in the same round? Seems crazy, but I don't mind this because Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera are two different players. Kasa will serve as the inline blocker, while Rivera will be the move tight end. The Raiders had nothing at the position, so they absolutely had to take care of this, especially when considering Matt Flynn's noodle arm. Rivera fits the range.

  17. Dallas Cowboys: DeVonte Holloman, OLB, South Carolina: B+ Grade
    Finally, a front-seven piece for Monte Kiffin's defense. It's not the defensive lineman that Dallas sorely has to acquire, but DeVonte Holloman fills the need for depth. I thought he'd go a bit earlier than this.

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Justin Brown, WR, Oklahoma: C Grade
    I'm not sure I would have considered Justin Brown draftable if the draft were 10 rounds, so this is a reach. However, it's the middle of the sixth round, so that's not a huge deal at this juncture.

  19. Arizona Cardinals: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson: B+ Grade
    The Cardinals weren't kidding when they said they were going to take the best player available. Andre Ellington will be the fourth running back on the roster, but he's a talented chance-of-pace player.

  20. Chicago Bears: Cornelius Washington, DE, Georgia: A+ Grade
    I don't understand why Cornelius Washington fell to the middle of the sixth round. Washington is a Day 2 talent. He is raw, but that's fine because the Bears won't really need him until Julius Peppers moves on.



  21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike James, RB, Miami: B Grade
    This is a pick that makes sense. The Buccaneers just dealt LeGarrette Blount to the Patriots, so they had to find a second running back behind Doug Martin.

  22. Cincinnati Bengals: Rex Burkhead, RB, Nebraska: B- Grade
    Rex Burkhead fits the range in the middle of the sixth round, but he wasn't needed with BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard on the depth chart. He's not bad injury insurance though.

  23. Washington Redskins: Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia: A Grade
    The Redskins did a great job of coming away with two steals at the safety position on Day 3. Bacarri Rambo should have gone in the third or fourth round. Washington will love his instinctive play.

  24. Indianapolis Colts: John Boyett, S, Oregon: B Grade
    John Boyett is a solid pick near the end of the sixth round. The Colts hadn't addressed the secondary yet, which is something they definitely had to do.



  25. Green Bay Packers: Nate Palmer, DE/OLB, Illinois State: C Grade
    Nate Palmer wasn't a draftable prospect, but that's not a big deal at the end of the sixth round. What's more surprising is that the Packers waited this long to take a pass-rusher.

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Spencer Ware, RB, LSU: C Grade
    Another running back? Why? Spencer Ware fits the range in Round 6, but this seems like a wasted pick.

  27. Houston Texans: Alan Bonner, WR, Jacksonville State: B Grade
    It's no surprise that the Texans selected a second wideout considering their glaring need at the position. Alan Bonner was seen as a Round 6-7 prospect, so he makes sense here.

  28. Minnesota Vikings: Jeff Baca, G, UCLA: B Grade
    Pegged as a sixth-round prospect, Jeff Baca should compete for a starting guard job eventually. The position is very weak for Minnesota, so Baca could be an upgrade.

  29. Cincinnati Bengals: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas: A- Grade
    I like this pick a lot. Cobi Hamilton probably should have gone in the fourth-round range, so he slipped a bit. The Bengals wanted to add another wideout, though I thought they'd take Da'Rick Rogers.

  30. Houston Texans: Chris Jones, DT, Bowling Green: C+ Grade
    This is a slight reach for the Texans, but Chris Jones makes sense as the sort of undersized nose tackle whom Wade Phillips likes to have on his defense.

  31. Detroit Lions: Theo Riddick, RB, Notre Dame: B Grade
    Reggie Bush isn't exactly the most reliable player in the league, so it's good that the Lions added some depth at running back. At the very worst, Riddick will add some punch in the return game.

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Kapron Lewis-Moore, DE/DT, Notre Dame: B Grade
    Like the 49ers, Baltimore had so many draft picks that it could draft someone it could redshirt. Kapron Lewis-Moore would have gone higher than this had he not suffered an injury in the championship. He'll be useful down the road once Chris Canty and Marcus Spears move on.

  33. Houston Texans: Ryan Griffin, TE, Connecticut: B- Grade
    We were told that the Texans wanted to find some help at tight end after losing James Casey to the Eagles, so it's surprising that they waited this long. Ryan Griffin was considered a seventh-round prospect, so this is pretty much the right range for him.

  34. Tennessee Titans: Khalid Wooten, CB, Nevada: B Grade
    No surprise that the Titans drafted a second cornerback because their pass defense was so woeful last year. They liked Wooten, which is why I mocked him to Tennessee in the seventh round.

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Ryan Jensen, G/OT, Colorado State: B Grade
    Ryan Jensen, widely considered a Round 6-7 prospect, should be able to provide some solid interior line depth.

  36. Kansas City Chiefs: Braden Wilson, FB, Kansas State: B Grade
    Andy Reid still likes to use fullbacks, and Braden Wilson is a solid one. The value is just right for him at the end of the sixth round.

  37. Oakland Raiders: Stacy McGee, DT, Oklahoma: B Grade
    The Raiders finally draft a defensive tackle 202 selections after most people thought they'd take one. Stacy McGee is a solid player for this pick.

  38. Pittsburgh Steelers: Vince Williams, ILB, Florida State: A Grade
    Leave it to the Steelers to find a steal with the final pick in the sixth round. Vince Williams is pretty talented, and it wouldn't shock me at all if he eventually emerged as a starter.
