131: St. Louis Stallions – Mason Schreck, TE, Buffalo
Has a great combination of side and speed to go with very nice hands. Mason Schreck was quite productive in college and only had one drop his final season against 59 receptions. He’ll have to get stronger to sustain as a blocker, but for an expansion team looking for weapons to add to their offense, Mason Schreck is a great selection.
132: Mississippi Cottonmouths – Josh Boutte, OG, LSU
A big, massive bulldozing blocker who had a tremendous Pro Day in showing off his athletic ability, Josh Boutte does have a lot of things to work on, but Mississippi is making a great gamble of a guy with such tremendous skills to work with.
133: Iowa Threshers – Kendrick Bourne, WR, Eastern Washington
Made up one of the best receiving duos in the country last year, but a lot of his production was because of Cooper Kupp, who went on to be a high NFL Draft pick. Still, Kendrick Bourne has nice size, length and an initial burst that makes him an interesting prospect. It’s just up to him to prove that his success wasn’t because he faced second-tier cornerbacks at the FCS level.
134: San Diego Diablos – Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
He’s powerful enough to handle even the biggest nose tackles, but he is a clunky blocker who lacks quickness, struggles to keep leverage and shows inconsistent footwork. The power is there, but he needs to be developed.
135: Houston Wranglers – BJ Bello, LB, Illinois State
It should be a red flag that this guy couldn’t break into the starting lineup for a poor Illinois team and only really got on the field after he transferred to a lower level and played at Illinois State. He has great measurable numbers but isn’t as aggressive or tough as he needs to be to play linebacker at a higher level. Could become a special teamer.
136: Minnesota Freeze – Shane Smith, FB/TE, San Jose State
A former linebacker whose bulk and power led to his move to fullback before his redshirt freshman season as San Jose State. He’s a big and aggressive guy with the mindset to attack and be a lead blocker. He never stops moving his feet when driving. He’s one-dimensional, though. He won’t carry the ball much and while he could be used one the line as a tight end, he won’t offer much as a receiver.
137: Memphis Bombers (Louisville Cougars) – Matt Dayes, RB, North Carolina State
A patient runner with very nice busts and cutting ability. He will wiggle his way through the defense to move the chains. However, he is too small to be a lead back. That is fine in Memphis with the powerful Jordan Howard leading the running game. Matt Dayes is a pretty great compliment for him as a third down back.
138: Charleston Dragons – Connor McGough, OLB, Calgary
A big Canadian linebacker. He’ll have to develop, but hey, it’s the sixth round. There is nothing wrong with getting a guy who is rough around the edges. Should be solid edge defender depth, though he is more of an edge setter than a pass rusher.
139: Utah Raptors – Blair Brown, ILB, Ohio
While the Raptors have Scooby Wright set as the signal caller of the defense in wake of Kaluka Maiava’s retirement, Blair Brown is a steal in the sixth round as a guy who will really push Wright for playing time. While he comes from a MAC school, he’s shown he had great instincts and tackling ability. He doesn’t have the ideal size of length teams typically look for but that hasn’t stopped him from being a top-notch run-stuffer. He is a liability on pass defense, though.
140: New York Marauders – Brett Golding, C, Laurier
Another one of these developmental Canadian defensive linemen, New York spent nice money to re-sign BJ Finney and have already named him their starting center following the surprise retirement of John Urschel, but Brett Golding is a center who has shown great ability to get out to the edge on sweeps and pulls. While his size must keep him inside on the line, he would play guard as well.
141: Utah Raptors (Atlanta Firebirds (Birmingham Predators)) – Adrian Colbert, FS, Miami (FLA)
Utah had a great pick just two picks ago, but this one is much riskier. Adrian Colbert wasn’t really a starter for the Hurricans, more of just a special teams coverage ace. He has tremendous size and speed and measurable numbers, though. The Raptors are gambling on his athletic ability and will see what they can make of him.
142: Carolina Generals (Dallas Six-Shooters) – Lucas Crowley, C, North Carolina
The Generals love drafting home-town guys and Lucas Crowley is the latest Tar Heel on the Generals. He has tremendous control of himself when driving and run blocking. His size, though, just 6-foot-3, 269-pounds, could be an issue when being bull-rushed by big and powerful nose tackles.
143: Los Angeles Stars (Omaha Express) – Maurice Smith, S, Georgia
The Firebirds may end up regretting passing on this guy in the territorial draft, but the Stars certainly are thrilled to get him, especially this late. He just knows how to play football. Maybe his ball skills leave something to be desired, so don’t expect a ton of interceptions from him, but he has good instincts and will get to the intended receiver while the ball is in the air.
144: Memphis Bombers (Louisville Cougars (Memphis Bombers)) – Trevor Knight, QB, Texas A&M
Trevor Knight is a very interesting player who should serve as a quality backup for AJ McCarron. He looks the part with his size and had good mobility to extend plays. He reads defenses well and has solid velocity on his zip passes. He doesn’t throw many interceptions either. But his fundamentals really, really need work. He’s a good player, but is like a ball of clay and needs to be molded and formed.
145: St. Louis Stallions (New Orleans Nightmare) – Stanley ‘Boom’ Williams, RB, Kentucky
Has a great burst and acceleration and can hurt teams when he gets to the edge, especially on screen passes. He also has value as a kick returner. However, his small size limits him to little more than a third-down back. Don’t expect him to live up to his nickname with powerful runs.
146: Washington Wave – Danny Collins, QB, Maine
Danny Collins has size and the work ethic and desire to become a serviceable quarterback, but he has some things that are worrisome about him – never competing at least 54-percent of his passes in college while having a poor TD-to-INT ratio throughout his career. Can he be more accurate against tougher competition.
147: Columbus Explorers -Tyrone Swoopes, TE, Texas
The former Texas Longhorns quarterback is transitioning to tight end to take advantage of his remarkable athelticism in a 6-foot-4, 249-pound frame. That’s a scary matchup, but of course, he is new to the position. He’ll have to prove his hands, but certainly he should have a fine understanding of routes and how to find the seems in the secondary when trying to get open.
148: Atlanta Firebirds – Cole Hikutini, TE, Louisville
The safety value for Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson had a very good senior season with 50 catches for 668 yards and eight touchdowns. He’s proven himself as a receiver, but he’s also a bit on the small side and may struggle with bigger linebackers. He also isn’t much of a blocker. He’s very one-dimensional.
149: Pittsburgh Forge – Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo
Has very good vertical ability, proven with over 80-percent of his receptions in college going for a first down. He’s really big at 6-foot-4, 270-pounds, and has very good hands, blocking ability and the ability to alter his body in the air to catch the ball. This is a steal for a team that loves throwing the ball and is looking to get younger at the tight end position. He’s not perfect and will need to sharpen his game, but this is a steal.
150: Orlando Rockets – Brandon Alexander, S, UCF
A former walk-on who was an effective three-year starter at Central Florida, Brandon Alexander was very impressive with great production every year of his career. He’s not overly athletic, but he makes up for it with his mind for the game and instincts.
151: Omaha Express (Iowa Threshers (Michigan Stags)) – Phillip Walker, QB, Temple
Easily the best quarterback in Temple history, Phillip Walker was very productive as a four-year starter in college and has a very nice TD-to-INT ratio. He doesn’t have the biggest arm in the world, but he’ll move the ball. He also has good mobility, though he isn’t a scrambler at all.
152: Seattle Orcas – Tunde Adeleke, DB, Carleton
And athletic Nigerian-Canadian who should fit in very well in the Orcas secondary as a developmental back. They have plenty of talent so they’ll be able to spend a long time developing him and turning his athletic ability into quality football skills.
153: Los Angeles Stars – Ukeme Eligwe, ILB, Georgia Southern
Has great size and will sift through the traffic to get to the ball-carrier, but he doesn’t play up to his strength. Doesn’t have great instincts and has to wait to see where the ball is going before moving. Character concerns too after being kicked off the Florida State program.
154: San Antonio Marshals – Isaac Rochell, DL, Notre Dame
Nothing flashy here, just a guy who can play football at a decent level. He’s a blue-collar type of player who can mix into a gameplan to do his job. Probably won’t ever develop into a reliable rotational player.
155: Carolina Generals – Titus Howard, CB, Slippery Rock
The Generals go with a Division II defensive back with this pick. It’s an interesting selection because he’ll have to prove himself at this high of a level, but he’s at least shown solid ball skills to go with his solid frame. May have to play safety, though to mask his speed. He only ran a 4.7 40-yard dash.
156: Philadelphia Bulldogs – Austin Calitro, ILB, Villanova
Another classic move to take a local guy, Austin Calitro is an instinctive linebacker who tracked down ball-carriers all the time in college. He’s not that athletic, but he is strong and hits hard and has great fundamentals to make up for it.
Best Pick: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo – Pittsburgh Forge
The Forge want to throw the ball as much as they possibly can and Michael Roberts is a big tight end who has proven himself as a pass catcher. This is a great way to get younger at the tight end position as well.
Most Questionable Pick: Adrian Colbert, FS, Miami (FLA) – Utah Raptors
He’s very athletic, but he was also almost exclusively a special teams coverage guy. If the Raptors drafted him to play safety and defend passes he will have a lot to prove.
