2011 NFL Draft Results: Dolphins Trade Up For Fullback Charles Clay

As the 2011 NFL draft moves into the sixth round, let's examine picks 171-175:

171. Arizona Cardinals select LB Quan Sturdivant of North Carolina. Sturdivant was a fringe second or third round prospect and struggled in 2010.

172. Minnesota Vikings select OL Brandon Fusco of Slippery Rock. Fusco has good size and stood out for tiny Slippery Rock.

173. Seattle Seahawks select CB Byron Maxwell of Clemson. Maxwell's a physical cornerback with good size and above-average tackling skills.

174. Miami Dolphins select FB Charles Clay of Tulsa. Clay's a big, sturdy fullback who could open holes for fellow draft pick Daniel Thomas. The Dolphins traded up for the Packers' 174th pick to take Clay, swapping the 179th and 218th picks for the 174th and 231st selections.

175. Tennessee Titans select OT Byron Stingily of Louisville. Big frame, great name for Cardinals product.
