Before we look at the picks, let's recap the selections from the earlier rounds. Keep in mind that each team has the use of Tom Brady on offense and Jamie Collins on defense.

Alec Shane - Devin McCourty - CB/S and all around great athlete; Julian Edelman - WR/KR/PR/QB/Slot CB and all around athlete; Matthew Slater - WR/S/special teams ace; Adrian Wilson - SS and tweener 'backer; Nate Solder - LT/TE who's both strong and athletic

Greg Knopping - Danny Amendola - WR/KR/PR and shifty as the Saharan sands; Aqib Talib - CB and another fast athlete; Aaron Dobson - WR tall, fast and with good hands; Josh Boyce - WR with speed to burn; Kyle Arrington - CB with some quickness and speed

Rich Hill - Rob Gronkowski - TE and unstoppable over the middle and up the seam; Chandler Jones - DE and TE in a past life; Ras-I Dowling - CB talented corner; Mark Harrison - WR/TE and freakish athlete; Nate Ebner - SS and overall athlete

Adam Fox - Shane Vereen - RB/WR with loads of speed and shiftiness; Jerod Mayo - LB with sideline to sideline speed; Leon Washington - KR/PR/RB a guy who is dangerous in space; Logan Ryan - CB and rookie with upside; Michael Hoomanawanui - TE with good blocking ability and decent hands

As the coaches make their final picks, who has drafted the strongest flag football team? Let's find out.

Round Six:

Alec Shane chose Tim Tebow. Tebow's acumen at QB of course causes Brady to head for the sidelines.... Just kidding. On offense, Tebow can line up in the backfield, play tight-end or swing into the slot. Alec has enough pieces to shuffle around him. On defense, he'll be another safety/light linebacker to help coverage across the middle and stuff the run remove runner's flags. Besides that, all Tebow does is win.

Greg Knopping chose Rob Ninkovich. Nink is a much needed pass rusher who is athletic enough to drop into coverage at any linebacker position. On offense, he projects to a TE or heavy fullback role. With Greg's offense built on speed, he really is just looking for a single block to free up runners or give his receivers a little extra room. Nink can help with that. He also wears number 50 which brings back Vrabelistic memories of a pass catching goal line tight end....

Rich Hill chose Vince Wilfork. Just as Alec started to right the scales Rich slammed them permanently into his favor. His pass rush and sheer size on the line is a spectacle to behold. Do they all just stand there and raise their arms preventing any hope of a pass? Good luck stopping Vince if he smells run. On offense, Vince projects to offensive line. Not one position, but the whole damn line. I'm not sure how this will work, but you can be assured I'd pay money to see it.

Adam Fox chose Stevan Ridley. Once again, Adam chooses a running back, and the sheer diversity of his stable is impressive. With Mayo and Hooman providing a key block here and there, he can ground and pound his way down the field. Oh, but we have Brady at quarterback. No problem. Every player on his team can catch the ball, and most of them are impressive in space. His team is unconventional, but that might be what also makes it so dangerous.
