NFL Draft results 2013: 2 Notre Dame players go late in 6th round

Jonathan Daniel

Two Notre Dame players went back-to-back late in the sixth round as teams continue to build depth and add pieces for the future.

The sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft is nearing its end, but teams are still adding solid talent. The Houston Texans had two picks between 198 and 202, and added a defensive tackle and tight end. Two players from Notre Dame were selected back-to-back, as Theo Riddick and Kapron Lewis-Moore went to the Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens, respectively.

198. Houston Texans: Chris Jones, DT, Bowling Green

Jones is a bit small for the position and isn't going to overpower any veteran or top-level offensive lineman, but he's a high-energy player that doesn't stop and is willing to learn. Jones has decent short-area quickness and he's the kind of player that won't quit until the whistle has blown. He could eventually break into a rotation on the defensive line.

199. Detroit Lions: Theo Riddick, RB, Notre Dame

The running game has been a weakness of the Lions ever since Barry Sanders retired. While Riddick won't come in and change that from Day 1, he adds to a Detroit backfield that will feature Reggie Bush this season. Riddick can also catch the ball out of the backfield and contribute on special teams.

200. Baltimore Ravens: Kapron Lewis-Moore, DE, Notre Dame

Lewis-Moore will likely not see the field for the Ravens this year as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in the BCS Championship game. He'll be a 3-4 defensive end in Baltimore, but also possesses the ability to serve as a 4-3 DT. He isn't the best athlete, but has good technique and is an intelligent player.

201. Houston Texans: Ryan Griffin, TE, Connecticut

Griffin was a productive tight end at UConn. He'll have time to learn behind the Texans tight ends, including Owen Daniels, and could be a contributor down the line.

202. Tennessee Titans: Khalid Wooten, CB, Nevada

Wooten is a physical corner who is a solid tackler and is also good in coverage. He only has average speed for the position, but he returned punts in college and could benefit the Titans on special teams.
