The Fanalysts have been grinding draft tape, monitoring team needs, and mock drafting since December. This 7-part mock-draft is one continuous mock draft and the final one of the season for us. We will be releasing one article per day in the week leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.
This is a summary of the 6th Round of our mock draft for the 2019 NFL Draft. Over the course of the next 6 days we will release one round, working backwards, until all 254 of our selections are revealed prior to the 2019 NFL Draft.
You can find the 7th round article HERE
|174||Arizona Cardinals||Trysten Hill, DT, UCF|
|175||Pittsburgh Steelers||Andrew Wingard, S, Wyoming|
|176||San Francisco 49ers||Sutton Smith, EDGE, Northern Illinois|
|177||New Orleans Saints||Tim Harris, CB, Virginia|
|178||Jacksonville Jaguars||Tyler Jones, OT, NC State|
|179||Arizona Cardinals||Evan Worthington, S, Colorado|
|180||New York Giants||Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA|
The sixth round has a lot of developmental prospects that have promising traits. Most of these players will not see the field right away but have potential to become starters with proper coaching and development.
Caleb Wilson is a prime example of a developmental prospect with promising traits. The 6’4” 240 lbs. tight end demonstrated his impressive speed by running a 4.56 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. With this speed, Wilson can be effective in the middle of the field, similar to Evan Engram. However, that’s really all Wilson has going for him at this point. If Wilson wants to see a significant role in the NFL, he will have to get stronger, improve his blocking and develop as a route runner.
|181||Buffalo Bills||Germaine Pratt, iLB, NC State|
|182||Denver Broncos||Kendall Sheffield, CB, Ohio State|
|183||Cincinnati Bengals||Montre Hartage, CB, Northwestern|
|184||Detroit Lions||David Sills V, WR, West Virginia|
|185||Green Bay Packers||Alex Bars, iOL, Notre Dame|
|186||Atlanta Falcons||Blace Brown, CB, Troy|
|187||Carolina Panthers||Keaton Sutherland, iOL, Texas A&M|
|188||Miami Dolphins||Nate Herbig, iOL, Stanford|
|189||Cleveland Browns||Terrone Prescod, iOL, NC State|
|190||Minnesota Vikings||Benny Snell, RB, Kentucky|
I am extremely excited for David Sills V to continue developing as a wide receiver. The former quarterback shows a great ability to get down the field and getting up to catch the ball. He definitely still needs development in his short route running and consistent hands, but Sills shows a ton of promise as a potential X-receiver.
In the sixth round, you usually don’t find running backs that have legit 3-down potential. However, with his size and pass protection ability, Benny Snell could have the opportunity to play on all 3 downs if drafted to the right opportunity. Snell doesn’t have the long speed and needs to develop as a receiver but has the vision and balance to be a solid producer in the NFL.
|191||Baltimore Ravens||Keelan Doss, WR, UC-Davis|
|192||Pittsburgh Steelers||Khalil Hodge, LB, Buffalo|
|193||Baltimore Ravens||Kerrith Whyte, RB, FAU|
|194||Green Bay Packers||Foster Moreau, TE, LSU|
|195||Houston Texans||Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan|
|196||New York Jets||Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame|
|197||Philadelphia Eagles||Preston Williams, WR, Colorado State|
Alize Mack has been gaining some hype throughout the pre-draft process. Mack faced several obstacles in his first few seasons at Notre Dame, including sitting out his sophomore season (academics) and battling injuries his junior season. Mack did start producing his senior year and showed some great potential. If he can develop his route running and continue being a nice, big target, Mack could have potential to be a consistent starter in the NFL
Preston Williams is the definition of a high ceiling, low floor prospect. Williams is a great athlete but lacks polish as an overall receiver. If he can develop his route running and learn to combat press coverage, Williams has the athletic upside to be a great playmaker at the next level.
|198||Cincinnati Bengals||Scott Miller, WR, Bowling Green State|
|199||Indianapolis Colts||Dontavius Russell, iDL, Auburn|
|200||Los Angeles Chargers||TJ, Edwards, LB, Wisconsin|
|201||Kansas City Chiefs||JoJo McIntosh, S, Washington|
|202||New Orleans Saints||Zach Gentry, TE, Michigan|
|203||Los Angeles Rams||Chase Hansen, LB, Utah|
|204||Detroit Lions||Tyler Roemer, OT, San Diego State|
|205||New England Patriots||Kevin Wilkins, iDL, Rutgers|
|206||Washington Redskins||Tommy Sweeney, TE, Boston College|
When it comes to fantasy football, I’ve never understood the hype for Tommy Sweeney. Yes, Sweeney will be a solid run blocker in the NFL, which will help him get on the field. But even if Sweeney is on the field, he lacks athleticism and variety in his route tree to be any sort of consistent fantasy producer.
|207||Pittsburgh Steelers||Emmanuel Butler, WR, NAU|
|208||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||D’Cota Dixon, S, Wisconsin|
|209||Minnesota Vikings||Gary Jennings, WR, West Virginia|
|210||Cincinnati Bengals||Armon Watts, iDL, Arkansas|
|211||Cincinnati Bengals||Will Harris, S, Boston College|
|212||San Francisco 49ers||Jordan Wyatt, CB, SMU|
|213||Cincinnati Bengals||Deshaun Davis, LB, Auburn|
|214||Kansas City Chiefs||Javon Patterson, iOL, Mississippi|
Gary Jennings will be one of those players that should always manage to find a roster spot in the NFL. He is a versatile player that can fill multiple roles. Jennings showed that he can be productive as the primary deep threat for West Virginia. I’m not sure Jennings will be anything more than a team’s WR 3, but if he gets the opportunity, Jennings has the tools to produce.
