2020 NFL Draft: Pick-by-pick analysis for Rounds 6-7

The 2020 NFL Draft is underway! You can follow all of the picks with our NFL Draft Tracker and tune in to NFL Network, ABC, ESPN and ESPN Deportes for live coverage. The draft will also be streamed live via the NFL app and ESPN app. Below is Mark Dulgerian's analysis for every pick by every NFL team.

NOTE: Only trades agreed to after Day 1 began are reflected below.


180) Hakeem Adeniji, OT, Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals may have waited a bit too long to address their offensive line depth, but this is a solid pickup. Adeniji isn't ready yet, but he brings versatility as a depth guard or tackle.

181) Netane Muti, OG, Denver Broncos

Muti would have been long gone had it not been for his long injury history. He is a nasty punisher on the inside and should help the unit's tone-setting ability if he emerges as a regular contributor. His film was one of the most fun to watch.

182) Michael Onwenu, OG, New England Patriots (via Colts)

Onwenu is a road-grader in the run game. The Patriots' starting unit is rock-solid on the interior, but it needed some depth. He could learn from one of the game's best run-blockers in Shaq Mason.

183) Cam Brown, LB, New York Giants

Brown is a rangy linebacker with the type of pursuit speed you want in your special teams coverage units. That is where Brown will likely be prioritized for the Giants.

184) Bravvion Roy, DT, Carolina Panthers

Matt Rhule is familiar with Roy after coaching him for three seasons at Baylor. Roy is a surprisingly nifty one-gapper and, as a bonus, showed value blocking two field goals in college. He'll get plenty of leeway to make the roster as a depth tackle.

185) Blake Ferguson, LS, Miami Dolphins

Ferguson was widely considered the best long snapper in this class. He'll be the team's third long snapper in three seasons.

186) Alohi Gilman, DB, Los Angeles Chargers

Gilman should be a strong contender to win a job on special teams for the Bolts. There is some potential to develop into a subpackage nickel defender with his instincts.

187) Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Cleveland Browns

This is solid value for a player with his combination of size, speed and ball skills. He should benefit from sharing the same practice field as two of the NFL's best route runners in Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., as that is a major area for improvement for DPJ.

188) Tyler Bass, K, Buffalo Bills

Stephen Hauschka made a pedestrian 78.6 percent of his field goals in 2019. Bass looks to turn in better performances for an emerging scoring offense.

189) Jake Luton, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags decided to play their hand in a sixth-round Pac-12 quarterback for the second-straight year, after the success they found in Gardner Minshew. Like Minshew, Luton has decent upside and it's not crazy to see a legitimate quarterback competition between these two at some point in 2020.

190) Charlie Woerner, TE, San Francisco 49ers

Woerner won't see a ton of balls thrown his way, but he is an outstanding blocker in space and could sneak his way into a heavy rotation in certain packages as an H-back. This could be a great value for a solid role player in a creative scheme.

191) Braden Mann, P, New York Jets

Mann is the next in a very long line of Texas A&M punters. He has a booming leg and it wouldn't be a surprise if he developed into a perennial Pro Bowler.

192) Jon Runyan, OG, Green Bay Packers

The Packers have been known to take college tackles and develop them into pro guards. Runyan, a staple at tackle for the Wolverines, likely moves inside in Green Bay.

193) Robert Windsor, DT, Indianapolis Colts

Windsor is scheme versatile and shows enough power to create disruption in the run and pass games as a rotational tackle/end. He doesn't have much of a ceiling, but this is a solid depth addition at this stage in the draft.

194) Khalil Davis, DT, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Davis' motor and explosiveness as a pass rusher will win coaches over, but consistency will be key. The Bucs don't have much depth on their defensive line, so he is in a solid situation to make this roster.

195) Justin Herron, OT, New England Patriots

Herron is an easy mover possessing left tackle feet, where he played his entire college career. His draft card labeled him a tackle, but he could eventually move inside.

196) Shaun Bradley, LB, Philadelphia Eagles (via Bears)

Bradley has physical limitations, but his pursuit speed, coordination and intangibles give him more than a fighting chance to make the Eagles' roster. He should shine on special teams in camp.

197) John Penisini, DT, Detroit Lions (via Colts)

Detroit had the fourth-lowest run stuff rate in the NFL last season, so it can use all the help it can get. Penisini is a gap-clogger who could find his way into the rotation early.

198) Antoine Brooks, DB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Brooks plays a physical brand of football and has great pursuit speed. He could be a difference-maker on special teams as he develops in coverage.

199) Jordan Fuller, DB, Los Angeles Rams

Fuller has very good range from single-high alignment, but his vision and instincts are average, which limits his playmaking potential. His physical attributes are attractive, but he's likely a depth/special-teamer at best for the Rams.

200) Quez Watkins, WR, Philadelphia Eagles (via Bears)

Fly Eagles Fly. That's been the theme for the Eagles' assortment of receivers in this draft. Watkins can do just that, as his 4.3 speed translates well on offense and as a returner. He is very raw as a route runner, so don't expect much offensive production until later in his rookie contract.

201) James Proche, WR, Baltimore Ravens (via Vikings)

Proche arguably has the best hands in this year's draft class. He won't make the Ravens' track team, but he could emerge as solid possession depth receiver. If they need someone to convert a key third-down catch, he may be their best option.

202) Evan Weaver, LB, Arizona Cardinals

It was easy to find Weaver when watching Cal on defense -- he's in the frame on every single play. He's a classic instincts-over-speed inside linebacker who does nothing but make tackles. His athletic limitations will make it tough for him to beat out many guys on the roster, but he should stick around for a long time as a back-up MIKE and special-teamer.

203) Blake Brandel, OT, Minnesota Vikings (via Saints)

Brandel is a college left tackle who could ultimately line up on the inside. Regardless, he provides some positional versatility for the Vikings.

204) Cassh Maluia, LB, New England Patriots

Maluia isn't likely to see many defensive snaps as he lacks benchmark physical traits and diagnostic skills. However, he has good play speed and should emerge as a core special teams contributor.

205) Josh Metellus, DB, Minnesota Vikings

Metellus has flashes of playmaking ability on film, which likely intrigued the Vikings enough to take a shot on his development. He isn't a special athlete, but the energy and ball skills he offers are worth a flier.

206) Tyler Davis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars

A high school quarterback, Davis saw just average college production at tight end. The Jaguars could see some shuffling around in their tight end room in the next year or so, so Davis has a decent chance of emerging as a roster-able player off the practice squad.

207) Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Buffalo Bills

Hodgins will wow coaches with his ball skills and nifty feet for a bigger receiver. If he's as consistent as he was in college last season, he has a real shot at making the Bills' roster.

208) Jake Hanson, C, Green Bay Packers

Hanson was ultra-reliable in college starting four years at center and earning honorable mention honors each season. He's tough and technically sound but will need to mature physically.

209) Simon Stepaniak, OG, Green Bay Packers

The Packers take interior linemen in back-to-back picks. With some key 2021 free agents in that position group, they'll be looking closely at the competition there.

210) Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Philadelphia Eagles (via 49ers)

The Eagles got nice value here if Wanogho's knees hold up. The team has been looking to add competition to a tackle position that lacks depth and has some uncertainty. Wanogho's talent is much better than a late sixth-rounder.

211) Isaiah Rodgers, DB, Indianapolis Colts (via Jets)

Rodgers may be size deficient, but he's speedy and has great ball skills. This is where you take a chance on undersized playmakers from lower-level programs.

212) Dezmon Patmon, WR, Indianapolis Colts (via Patriots)

Patmon has nice size and 50/50 ball skills, but it will be tough for him to stand out with below average separation skills. He's likely a practice squad stash as he tunes up his patterns.

213) Jordan Glasgow, LB, Indianapolis Colts (via Patriots)

A former walk-on, Glasgow was a special teams standout throughout his college career. He is also an extremely reliable tackler with great competitive energy. He's a fringe roster guy with nice special teams upside.

214) Freddie Swain, WR, Seattle Seahawks

Swain will get camp reps in the slot, and he has good speed as a catch-and-run weapon. But his best shot at making a roster is as a returner on special teams.


215) Markus Bailey, LB, Cincinnati Bengals

Glaring injury concerns caused his fall in the draft, but Bailey is a very smart, instinctual linebacker you want on the inside. If he can stay healthy, Bailey should be a shoo-in to compete for a starting job.

216) Kamren Curl, DB, Washington Redskins

Washington is banking on Curl's special teams ability to sign him to its active roster. He can add depth as a subpackage safety, where he shows solid range against the run and pass.

217) Jauan Jennings, WR, San Francisco 49ers

The Niners add another big, physical slot receiver to their roster to compete for a spot in their rotation. Jennings is far from polished, but he has some "bully" to him that could win coaches over.

218) Carter Coughlin, Edge, New York Giants

The Giants' defense ranked in the bottom 10 in pressure rate last season, so adding any competition to their edge group makes sense. Coughlin has some length deficiencies, but he wins enough with his motor and quickness in the pass game to earn a roster spot.

219) Geno Stone, DB, Baltimore Ravens (via Vikings)

The Ravens love to draft toughness and instincts and Stone has plenty of both. He isn't the greatest athlete, but he proved capable of creating turnovers with his vision and smarts from the back end.

220) K.J. Hill, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Ohio State has pumped out some impressive route runners over the last few seasons and Hill is no exception. The Chargers hope iron sharpens iron here as Keenan Allen should provide a great example of how to win from the slot.

221) Stantley Thomas-Oliver, DB, Carolina Panthers

The Panthers turn in their seventh and final draft card with their seventh defensive player. Thomas-Oliver joins a defense that ranked 31st in points per game allowed last season.

222) Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals pick up some competition for a reserve running back job right out of their backyard. Benjamin isn't especially explosive, but he's shifty and experienced in the receiving game.

223) Chris Claybrooks, DB, Jacksonville Jaguars

Claybrooks is undersized with marginal coverage technique and instincts, but his real value may be as competition for the return game. He has very good speed and has experience returning kicks.

224) Cole McDonald, QB, Tennessee Titans

McDonald's athleticism and arm talent give him an edge for the Titans' backup job. He has time to sit behind Ryan Tannehill, learn to manage an offense and clean up his decision-making.

225) Kenny Willekes, DE, Minnesota Vikings (via Ravens)

This is a great spot to take a flier on a highly productive Big Ten defensive lineman. He lived in the opponents' backfields (51.0 TFL, 26.0 sacks since 2017) and has one of the best motors in this class. He'll be an easy player to like in camp, but how consistently can he match up physically vs. NFL talent?

226) Arlington Hambright, OG, Chicago Bears

Hambright was a college left tackle, but he will likely move inside where he is a better fit physically. Chicago needs to find upgrades to its depth inside during camp.

227) Lachavious Simmons, OG, Chicago Bears (via Eagles)

The Bears selecting guards in the seventh round with back-to-back picks says they want camp competition there. Simmons and Hambright will by vying for a bottom-of-the-roster spot.

228) Sterling Hofrichter, P, Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons needed to upgrade this position after finishing 30th in net punting average last season. It's Hofrichter's job to lose in camp.

229) James Smith-Williams, DE, Washington Redskins

The Redskins had the worst third-down defense last season, so no harm in kicking the tires on a traits-heavy pass rusher here. Smith-Williams has durability issues, but there is a chance he flashes enough in camp to make this team.

230) Dustin Woodard, C, New England Patriots

Bill Belichick adds more camp competition for depth on the interior of his line. The Patriots have had decent success stashing late-round linemen on their practice squad for development.

231) Ben DiNucci, QB, Dallas Cowboys

The backup job in Dallas is anything but secure. The former Pitt Panther and 2019 CAA Offensive Player of the Year elevated a James Madison program using his arm and his legs (1,000-plus rushing yards since 2018).

232) Carlos Davis, DT, Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have a decent track record of developing late-round defensive players. Davis is inconsistent, but he flashes very disruptive reps that could help him carve out a role in the Steelers' defensive line rotation.

233) Casey Toohill, DE, Philadelphia Eagles (via Bears)

Toohill has good straight-line athleticism to win a job on the Eagles' special teams units. There is some upside as a subpackage blitz specialist.

234) Clay Johnston, LB, Los Angeles Rams

New special teams coordinator John Bonamego will be looking for his special teams studs this offseason. Johnston has the tackling ability and fluidity in space to be one of them.

235) Jashon Cornell, DE, Detroit Lions

Ohio State isn't a bad place to take a late-round flier from, especially with the offensive and defensive line. Detroit adds another body to compete for a depth role at end or tackle.

236) Vernon Scott, DB, Green Bay Packers

Scott has decent size to go along with flashes of playmaking ability. He'll get a shot at a depth role at safety or nickel in camp, but special teams will be where he earns his paycheck if he makes the team.

237) Thakarius Keyes, DB, Kansas City Chiefs (via Titans)

Keyes has the type of length and athleticism that coaches take notice of as a late-round flier. He is worth stashing on the practice squad as he strings together the mental with the physical aspects of the position.

238) T.J. Brunson, LB, New York Giants

Brunson is experienced and plays with a quick trigger, but he falls below the NFL baselines in size and athleticism. He's a long shot to make the roster unless he shines on special teams.

239) Dane Jackson, DB, Buffalo Bills

The Bills got a solid value pick for Jackson, who plays with the fluidity and tenacity to excite secondary coaches. The cornerback room is a bit crowded, but don't be surprised if he stands out on special teams in 2020 and works his way into the rotation in Year 2.

240) Tommy Stevens, QB, New Orleans Saints (via Texans)

Stevens isn't a natural passer, but he flashed above average mobility and running skills during his career. There are some in the NFL that believe he can develop into an H-back, and what better team to explore his options than Sean Payton's Saints?

241) Chapelle Russell, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Russell has a chance to win a roster spot by showcasing his toughness and quickness on special teams. His defensive value is limited unless he shows drastic improvement operating in traffic.

242) Jonathan Garvin, DE, Green Bay Packers

Garvin is an impressive traits-based player who the Packers will look to develop on their practice squad. His length and test numbers project very well to the pro game.

243) Chris Jackson, DB, Tennessee Titans

Jackson is a good athlete with NFL speed, but he'll need to tighten up in coverage to get an extended look in camp.

244) Nate Stanley, QB, Minnesota Vikings (via Saints)

Stanley's size and arm strength will catch your attention. However, he will have a tough time landing a backup job in the NFL unless he cleans up his accuracy and decision-making.

245) Raymond Calais, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via 49ers)

Anytime you're equipped with Calais' speed and versatility (all-conference RB, all-purpose player, and returner in 2019), you're going to be one of the favorites to make your team regardless of draft round. Tampa Bay should be able to find a role for him early.

246) Malcolm Perry, RB, Miami Dolphins

Perry will be making the transition from option QB to returner, but he was one of the more electric college players with the ball in his hands over the last few years. He has a good chance to flash enough in camp to earn a roster spot.

247) Chris Williamson, DB, New York Giants

Williamson plays an aggressive, physical brand of ball that is valued on special teams coverage units. That will be his ticket to the NFL.

248) Sam Sloman, K, Los Angeles Rams

Sloman will be counted on to be "the guy" for a Rams team that finished 28th in made field-goal percentage last season.

249) Brian Cole II, DB, Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota added plenty of competition to its secondary in the draft. However, don't be surprised if they look to convert Cole into a hybrid safety/linebacker.

250) Tremayne Anchrum, OG, Los Angeles Rams (via Texans)

Anchrum is a seasoned developmental tackle/guard with big-game experience. He is accustomed to playing in heavy spread concepts, much like he'll see in Los Angeles.

251) Stephen Sullivan, WR, Seattle Seahawks (via Dolphins)

Sullivan is a flex tight end/wide receiver tweener who offers little else outside of pass catching. He isn't ready to play yet, but coaches may want to stash and develop him into a specialty chess piece.

252) Tyrie Cleveland, WR, Denver Broncos

Some of Cleveland's best highlights came on special teams. He is a tough, speedy receiver who has been highly inconsistent on offense, but his production as a gunner could be enough to sign him to the active list.

253) Kyle Hinton, OG, Minnesota Vikings

Hinton was very productive at the Division III level and has enough athleticism for coaches to work with. He'll need a couple seasons on the practice squad before he's ready to compete for an active roster spot.

254) Derrek Tuszka, LB, Denver Broncos

Tuszka has physical limitations, but he wins with great competitive energy and aggressiveness off the edge. There is limited upside there, but he could compete for a backup role down the line.

255) Tae Crowder, LB, New York Giants

The former running back (stuck behind Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, and Elijah Holyfield) made the transition to inside linebacker and showed gradual improvement in each season. Mr. Irrelevant will have a tough time seeing the field early in his career unless he makes noise on special teams.
