Round 6, Pick 196

UCF. player. 57. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. CB. Nevelle Clarke. 6

Cornerback stands out as a massive need on this roster and I looked to attack the position throughout this mock draft. That being said, with the possible exception of taking Damon Arnette at No. 43 instead of Cushenberry, there really was not a good opportunity to find a properly valued player at the position until now.

Nevelle Clarke has quick feet and great length on the outside. He attacks the ball in the air extremely well, consistently baiting opposing quarterbacks into poor throws. He is a smart and scrappy outside cornerback who shows great natural instincts in coverage. Clarke does get overpowered by bigger receivers on the outside at times, but he is a good man and zone coverage cornerback who has nice upside at the next level.

Round 6, Pick 200

Pick Analysis. CB. A.J. Green. 6. Scouting Report. Oklahoma State. player. 57

Just a few picks later, the Chicago Bears made another addition at the cornerback position. Similarly to Clarke, Green shows good length and overall athleticism at the position. He moves well in space and shows tremendous natural ball skills. Green shows plenty of upside in both man and zone coverage and has similar functional strength issues as Clarke.

A.J. Green played better than a sixth-round pick in college, but his 4.62 40-yard dash is going to raise questions about his ability at the next level. That being said, Green played much faster on tape. He is undoubtedly worth taking a shot on late in the sixth round.
