4 CB’s Seahawks should go after in draft
By Andy Larkin
Treston Decoud, Oregon State
Decoud is a player that is flying under the radar. The JC transfer played just two seasons at Oregon State. But in that time the 6’2″ 205lb corner proved he could play at a high level. Decoud saw a lot of talented receivers in the PAC 12 and shut down most of them on a regular basis. By the end of his Senior season opposing quarterbacks knew better then to throw to Decoud’s side of the field.
The physical corner would fit well in the Seattle scheme. He can beat guys up off of the line but he also has the quickness and closing speed to blanket receivers downfield. Like King, Decoud isn’t afraid to come up and lay his hat on ball carriers.
Decoud really has all of the tools to be a solid corner in the NFL. Given his limited national exposure while being part of a rebuild at OSU, Decoud could be an absolute steal for the Seahawks in the late rounds of the draft. This could potentially be one of those Pete Carroll, John Schneider late round/undrafted free agent magic tricks. If it works out that way, Seahawks fans should be excited.
