2016 NFL Draft: Round 6, Picks 208-215 grades & analysis

Pick 208 (Round 6, Pick 33) - New England Patriots select Kamu Grugier-Hill, Eastern IllinoisPick analysis: 

Pick 208 (Round 6, Pick 33) – New England Patriots select Kamu Grugier-Hill, Eastern Illinois

Pick analysis: Patriots lost Mayo to retirement and need to add depth to attempt to fix that position. Player analysis: We have Kamu Grugier-Hill listed as a safety. He is our 28th-ranked safety in this year’s draft. Grade: C  

Pick 209 (Round 6, Pick 34) – Baltimore Ravens select Maurice Canady, CB, Virginia

Pick analysis: The Ravens are in desperate need of Corner play, due to unfortunate circumstances, Canady will be depth to help remedy this. Player analysis: Maurice Canady is the 38th-ranked cornerback in this year’s draft. Grade: B  

Pick 210 (Round 6, Pick 35) – Detroit Lions select Jimmy Landes, LS, Baylor

Pick analysis: The first Long Snapper is off the board. Long Snapper is such an important position and is so undervalued. Great pick Player analysis: Jimmy Landers is our 14th-ranked specialist, and 2nd-ranked longsnapper, in this year’s draft. Grade: A  

Pick 211 (Round 6, Pick 36) – San Francisco 49ers select Kelvin Taylor, RB, Florida

Pick analysis: Hyde is the starter, but help is always wanted at the running back position. and any assistance in keeping Hyde fresh helps the 49ers. Player analysis: He’s known for having a famous dad in Fred, but has made a name for himself over the past couple seasons for the Gators. Kelvin doesn’t have his father’s speed, but does have the same fantastic jump cut ability and changes of direction to create, and has a good build for the NFL at 5ft 10 and nearly 210 lbs. He may not break away for many long runs but has nice vision to take what’s there, which led to topping the 1,000-yard mark in 2015 and finding the end zone regularly with an impressive 13 scores. A big plus that will earn trust with his new team is ball security, with Taylor not fumbling even once during college. While the total numbers were good, his 4.0 yards per carry was not however. Grade: B-  

Pick 212 (Round 6, Pick 37) – Dallas Cowboys select Kavon Frazier, S, Central Michigan

Pick analysis: The Cowboys get some depth on the back end, a player who can tackle anyone and everyone. Player analysis: Kavon Frazier is our 20th-ranked safety in this year’s draft. Grade: C+  

Pick 213 (Round 6, Pick 38) – San Francisco 49ers select Aaron Burbridge, WR, Michigan State

Pick analysis: The 49ers are looking for players everywhere and Burbridge brings production. Player analysis: After the graduation of Tony Lippett, Burbridge became Connor Cook’s go-to guy this season, and often bailed his QB out by making tough grabs on throws under tight coverage that should never have been attempted, as Cook liked to focus in on his top target too often. He had one of the epic battles of the season going up against arguably the best cover corner in the country in Michigan’s Jourdan Lewis that saw both players push each other, with both emerging about equal in their duel. Burbridge isn’t the biggest but is reliable with enough athleticism to continue to make plays at the next level. Grade: C+  

Pick 214 (Round 6, Pick 39) – New England Patriots select Elandon Roberts, LB, Houston

Pick analysis: Another pick to attempt to replace Jared Mayo’s production. Player analysis: Elandon Roberts is our 37th-ranked linebacker in this year’s draft. Grade: B-  

Pick 215 (Round 6, Pick 40) – Seattle Seahawks select Joey Hunt, C, Texas Christian

Pick analysis: The Seahawks O line is bleak, this draft has had a focus in sorting that out. Can play across the line. Player analysis: Joey Hunt is our 19th-ranked center in this year’s draft. Grade: B+
