Vinnie Sunseri has had injury problems, but could be a solid special teams player his rookie year.
Tom Brady and Alfred Morris came from the sixth round, so there can be more than value found here. Realistically, however, that's exactly what you're looking for. Someone who has potential, or could stick around and help the team out in a year or so.
Vinnie Sunseri, SS, Alabama
Despite missing the second half of the 2013 season with a torn ACL, Alabama's Vinnie Sunseri declared for the draft anyway.
While many felt he would benefit from another year in college, his place was being threatened by Landon Collins anyway, so it's not a bad move to make the jump now.
His father, Sal Sunseri, is the Florida State linebackers coach, so there is some pedigree there. However, the feeling persists that he was somewhat of an overachiever with the Crimson Tide, which doesn’t bode well for his NFL future.
Nevertheless, he is excellent in run support and showed the ability to make some plays in space at Alabama, which could be of use to Gruden and Washington.
Rob Blanchflower, TE, Umass
The player Rob Blanchflower most resembles is current Washington TE Logan Paulsen. He's a big guy who works best as a utility player to move the chains and block effectively.
Blanchflower can do both those things well, and at 6'4” and 260 pounds, can catch the ball in traffic and hold off defenders to claim the catch.
He's had some dropped passes, but overall his technique is solid and he's made some big plays at important times for the Minutemen.
He's a real team player, which is always going to be good value in the sixth round.
Carrington Byndom, CB, Texas
While Carrington Byndom hasn't developed into the player Texas thought he could be, there's still a lot to like about his future.
He's got a ton of dedication and gives his all on every play. With such a high motor, Byndom was able to match up with some of the best receivers in college football and still not get burned.
He's got a long way to go with his technique, and sometimes gets completely lost in coverage, but if he isn't forced into a starting role too early, can develop into a good corner.
