6th round NFC East recap / instant analysis


DeVonte Holloman, LB, South Carolina: Holloman is a converted safety who is now a 6’1, 243 lb LB, likely a SAM in the Cowboys’ 4-3 defense. The Eagles and Redskins could both carry as many as 4 TEs on their rosters this season, so the Cowboys are going to need players who can cover them. I remember watching the Outback Bowl and being impressed with Holloman. Here’s the tape of that game. Holloman is everywhere:

By the end of last season, the Cowboys’ LBs were so ravaged by injury that they were playing guys like Brady Poppinga. This year, they should have better depth after signing Justin Durant and retaining Ernie Sims in free agency. Holloman may have slipped due to some character concerns (DUI), but this is outstanding value in the 6th. Great pick… probably their best one in this draft.


Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia: In 2012, Phillip Thomas led the nation in INTs:

In 2011, David Amerson led the nation in INTs, and new Redskins safety Bacarri Rambo was 2nd:

All 3 players were drafted by the Redskins this year.

They might not tackle anybody, but I think we can safely assume that Mike Shanahan and Jim Haslett are interested in collecting players who can generate turnovers.

7th round picks:

  • Eagles: 212
  • Eagles: 218
  • Giants: 225
  • Redskins: 228
  • Eagles: 239 (compensatory)
  • Giants: 253 (compensatory)

    Skins took some risks in the draft this year. I guess with no 1st round and such a bad secondary it was necessary. We’ll see how it works out.
