6th round: Harry Howell, like Benedict, I'm less sold because of comparisons with players who are canonized much lower. And I don't see Crawford worthy of a 150 pick jump, although he is a lot more impressive.
I don't think Howell was particularly good value, but none of the defensemen taken near him were either, really. The #2 defense position had been very decimated by the time BB got to Howell, so he had little choice to make a mini-reach with his #2 dman position left unfilled.

I see Howell as a very good #3 playing a bit over his head as a #2, but next to a very good #1.

Crawford would be a more average #3.
