2015 NFL Mock Draft: Final Mock 7 Rounds

Round 6

Oregon Ducks 3-4 right outside linebacker Tony Washington had a huge game against Florida State. I think he's a player to keep an eye on in round 6 of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Posted By: Chris Ransom Last Updated: April 30, 2015. Updated Every Thursday leading up to Draft Day.

  1. Tennessee Titans: Mike Marboe, C, Idaho

    The Titans need a center for depth behind Brian Schwenke. Mike Marboe is an awesome pick here.

  2. New England Patriots: Jaquel Pitts, WR, Mayville State

    The New England Patriots take a small school receiver with this pick. The Patriots have addressed all of their needs, and Jaquel Pitts is the best receiver left in round 6.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Nick O'Leary, TE, Florida State

    Oakland needs a starting tight end. Nick O'Leary hurt his stock at Florida State's Pro Day, but Oakland will gladly take him if he slips to Round 6.

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: E.J. Bibbs, TE, Iowa State

    Jacksonville loves E.J. Bibbs. The Jaguars believe Bibbs is the fourth best tight end in the entire draft and want someone to challenge and eventually replace Marcedes Lewis as the #2 tight end on the depth chart.

    Previous Pick: Terrance Plummer, MLB, Central Florida

  5. Seattle Seahawks: Terrence Plummer, MLB, Central Florida

    Both Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner have expiring contracts after next season. I doubt the Seahawks have the cap space to bring back both. Terrance Plummer could be a good developmental player behind Wagner at middle linebacker.

    Previous Pick: Mike Hull, MLB, Penn State

  6. Washington Redskins: Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State

    Washington might have Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, and Colt McCoy on the roster. Sean Mannion is a fourth round prospect, so if you take him in round six as a developmental quarterback, that would be pretty smart.

  7. Chicago Bears: Terry Poole, RT, San Diego State

    Chicago has Terry Poole as their sixth round pick on their draft board. That makes sense since the Bears need to find an upgrade at right tackle.

  8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Hull, MLB, Penn State

    Tampa Bay has yet to address middle linebacker. The Buccaneers select Mike Hull here.

    Previous Pick: Damian Parms, SS, Florida Atlantic

  9. Atlanta Falcons: David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa

    Atlanta won't have Steven Jackson or Jacquiz Rodgers in 2015. David Johnson had 4 seasons with at least 822 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns per year as a 4 year starter. Atlanta would love to get a running back with that kind of value in the sixth round.

  10. New York Giants: Faysal Shafaat, TE, Tennessee Chattanooga

    The New York Giants could use another tight end. Faysal Shafaat provides awesome value at this spot.

  11. New Orleans Saints: Bryan Bennett, QB, Southeastern Louisiana

    The New Orleans Saints love Bryan Bennett, the former Oregon Ducks quarterback that competed against Marcus Mariota for the Ducks starting job impressed the Saints.

    Bennett seems like an ideal candidate to succeed Drew Brees. Bennett is 6-3 215 lbs, and can fire a pass 80 yards with his cannon arm. Accuracy and reading progressions is what Bennett needs to work on. Learning Sean Payton's offense while watching Drew Brees might help Bennett correct his weaknesses. If he corrects those weaknesses by the time Brees retires, then Bennett will have a chance to be the biggest draft steal since Tom Brady.

  12. Buffalo Bills: Cody Fajardo, QB, Nevada

    Buffalo can use this pick to get a quarterback to compete for a roster spot. Their roster already features Matt Cassel, E.J. Manuel, Tyrod Taylor, and Jeff Tuel.

    Add Cody Fajardo to the equation, who the Bills love, and you got 5 quarterbacks competing for 3 roster spots. Fajardo may be raw, but he has the potential to beat those guys out to be the starting quarterback for the Bills if he busts his rear end and displays a tremendous work ethic.

  13. Cleveland Browns: Brandon Vitable, C, Northwestern

    Cleveland gets a center for depth. Vitable may be a backup center at best. That's all the Browns need Vitable to be when you got a healthy Alex Mack on the roster, who has suffered season ending injuries each of the past two seasons.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: MyCole Pruitt, TE, Southern Illinois

    San Francisco grabs another tight end. MyCole Pruitt had 861 receiving yards and 13 receiving touchdowns in 2014. Pruitt could emerge into a red zone threat for the 49ers.

    Previous Pick: E.J. Bibbs, TE, Iowa State

  15. Miami Dolphins: Damian Parms, SS, Florida Atlantic

    I have yet to give Miami a strong safety. Damian Parms would be good value here in the sixth round.

    Previous Pick: Wes Saxton, TE, South Alabama

  16. San Diego Chargers: Sam Carter, SS, TCU

    I gave San Diego Sam Carter in the third round of one of my previous mocks. The Chargers get Carter in round 6 to replace strong safety Marcus Gilchrist.

  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Anthony Jefferson, FS, UCLA

    UCLA safety Anthony Jefferson is a guy with the versatility to play strong safety or free safety. Taking Jefferson simply makes too much sense here as the Chiefs get their second starting safety.

  18. Buffalo Bills: Zack Wagenmann, 3-4 ROLB, Montana

    Buffalo adds a 3-4 pass rusher for depth in case Jerry Hughes turns out to be a 4-3 only guy that got overpaid this offseason.

  19. Houston Texans: Tyler Kroft, TE, Rutgers

    Houston needs another tight end. Tyler Kroft out of South Alabama slips to this pick.

    Previous Pick: MyCole Pruitt, TE, Southern Illinois

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Hill, CB, Oregon

    Troy Hill is a guy that stepped up at cornerback when Ifo Ekpre-Olomu went down with an injury. Chip Kelly will draft a former Oregon Duck at some point on draft day. Besides Pro Football Focus thinks Hill is the second best dark horse in the draft after Henry Anderson.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: James Castleman, DT, Oklahoma State

    James Castleman is 6-3 311 lbs. He did an outstanding job keeping Karlos Williams in check on the ground.

  22. Arizona Cardinals: Cameron Meredith, WR, Illinois State

    Arizona can take the best player available in round 6. Cameron Meredith from Illinois State had 66 receptions, 1,061 receiving yards, and 9 receiving touchdowns in 2014. Meredith is the top receiver and top player on the board in round 6.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jesse James, TE, Penn State

    The Steelers like the 6-7 254 lb tight end. James did a good job at his Pro Day. Todd Haley, offensive line coach Mike Munchak, quarterbacks/wide receivers coach Randy Fitchner, and the Steelers tight end coach all spoke with James following his Pro Day.

    Pittsburgh can take the best player available at this point in round 6. James is a guy they like, and USA Today believes he's the fifth best tight end in the entire 2015 NFL Draft. The bottom line is getting James this late is quite the bargain.

  24. Detroit Lions: Jamon Brown, RT, Louisville

    Jamon Brown weighs 6-6 326 lbs. He has the versatility to play offensive tackle on either side. Was Louisville's right tackle in 2012, and was the left tackle for Louisville during his final two seasons with the Cardinals. Brown had a strong combine and there's a chance he might go higher than this. At the end of the day, we still think Brown is a day 3 pick.

  25. Carolina Panthers: Connor Halliday, QB, Washington State

    An outside source within the Panthers told us that Don Gregory has Connor Halliday out as a fifth round pick on the Panthers draft board. If that's true then Halliday will be the pick here.

    Halliday's statistics are more consistent than Sean Mannion's in terms of touchdowns which is the real stat that matters. Halliday had 4,597 passing yards and 34 passing touchdowns as a junior. He then followed that up with 3,873 passing yards and 32 touchdowns in 2014. Halliday also improved his completion percentage from 62.9 to 67.3 this past season. Mannion on the other hand only had one season with more than 16 passing touchdowns and that came in 2013.

    Not only does Halliday have more career touchdowns than Mannion, but he also has a better touchdown to interception ratio as well. Halliday had 90 passing touchdowns and 50 interceptions at Washington State. Mannion on the other hand had 83 passing touchdowns and 54 interceptions.

    Based on production and consistency you can make a case for Halliday going earlier. Being 6-4 198 lbs and playing in a shotgun spread offense under Mike Leech hurts him. Not throwing at his Pro Day because of a shoulder injury also causes him to fall to this pick because now teams have even more concerns about whether he can throw in a Pro Style offense or whether he's recovered from his shoulder injury.

    Carolina could take Halliday as a third string quarterback if the Panthers have this much interest in him. Halliday would be a perfect quarterback for the Panthers to add. Learning how to adapt to a Pro Style offense behind backup Derek Anderson would be a best case scenario for Connor Halliday.

  26. Cleveland Browns: Karlos Williams, RB, Florida State

    Cleveland takes Karlos Williams to add more depth to the running game. Williams had 11 rushing touchdowns in 2013 and 12 rushing touchdowns in 2014. He is a #2 back at best, but he's very effective in the red zone. Good ball carrier vision, but a lack of speed along with lackluster pass protection causes him to fall to this pick.

  27. Denver Broncos: Trey DePriest, 3-4 MLB, Alabama

    Denver has yet to draft a 3-4 middle linebacker. Trey DePriest makes a lot of sense at this point in round 6 when you consider his 6-2 250 lb size inside.

  28. Baltimore Ravens: Corey Grant, RB, Auburn

    Corey Grant ran a 4.19 40 time at his Pro Day. I get a feeling that the Grant becomes a special teams player on the Ravens despite being the #2 running back on Auburn's roster.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Matt Rotheram, RG, Pittsburgh

    Indianapolis will need a right guard for depth in case Todd Herremans screws up. Matt Rotheram from Pittsburgh is one of the top right guards left on the board.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Miles Dieffenbach, LG, Penn State

    Miles Dieffenbach has started every game at left guard for Penn State since 2012. He would be a good offensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers to add for depth.

  31. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Donnal, RT, Iowa

    Andrew Donnal out of Iowa has the versatility to play right tackle or right guard. Donnal will be a late round gem. He would be a suitable backup to Gosder Cherillus at right tackle and could compete with Rotheram for a roster spot if the Colts believe they have a good backup right tackle.

  32. Tennessee Titans: Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Auburn

    Tennessee could use a #2 running back. Cameron Artis-Payne had a lousy Pro Day. I get that. At the same time, a backup to Bishop Sankey would be nice.

  33. Seattle Seahawks: Josh Shaw, CB, USC

    Pete Carroll gets a former Trojan. Hopefully, Shaw's cleaned up his act. Last thing we need is a trojan horse in the Seahawks locker room. Having guys like Sherman, Thomas, and Chancellor on the Legion of Boom might motivate Shaw to be on his best behavior in Seattle.

  34. Green Bay Packers: Rob Havenstein, RT, Wisconsin

    Green Bay gets another right tackle for depth here. The local Wisconsin product Rob Havenstein goes to Green Bay with this pick.

  35. Houston Texans: Blake Simms, QB, Alabama

    Houston drafts Blake Simms to compete for a roster spot as a third string quarterback. Simms will have to outperform Tom Savage and Case Keenum in the Texans 2015 Training Camp if he wants that final quarterback spot in Houston.

  36. Pittsburgh Steelers: A.J. Turpley, 3-4 MLB, Stanford

    Pittsburgh adds a 3-4 middle linebacker with this pick. A.J. Truly seems like an ideal late round pick.

  37. Green Bay Packers: Tony Washington, 3-4 ROLB, Oregon

    Getting one more 3-4 right outside linebacker for depth could not hurt. Washington was the biggest reason why the Oregon Ducks gave Winston so much fits in the 2015 College Football Playoff.

  38. Seattle Seahawks: Wes Saxton, TE, South Alabama

    Seattle adds one more tight end for depth. Wes Saxton is a bargain at this point.

    Previous Pick: Tyler Kroft, TE, Rutgers

  39. St. Louis Rams: Chase Williams, MLB, Virginia Tech

    Chase Williams is the son of Rams defensive coordinator Greg Williams. Seems like a suitable backup for the Rams at middle linebacker.

  40. Houston Texans: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas

    The Texans may add a nickel corner. Quandary Diggs is a nickel cornerback. He's also a major steal at this point in the seventh round.

  41. Kansas City Chiefs: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia

    Kansas City drafts a nickel cornerback. Damian Swann is a solid addition late in round 6.
