Seahawks offensive line draft prospects: Combine Report
By Derek Tweedy
Braden Smith – 6’6″ 315 – 32 1/4″ Arm Length – Auburn
Smith looked comfortable in slide drills. He was very fast and athletic for his size showing a strong lower body that always looked balanced. His hips were a little tight. Smith looks like a right tackle, but could play anywhere else on the line in a pinch. He may be forced inside to guard based on his short arms and may be off of Seattle’s board altogether because of them. If it were me, this guy is a player I would still show interest in.
Connor Williams – 6’5″ – 296 lbs. – 33″ Arm Length – Texas
Williams has heavy legs. He looks like an athlete, but could have bent better. His hips were smooth and his feet followed easily. His upper body looked solid. He showed good hand placement and looked powerful. He definitely looks talented, but was inconsistent in the drills. That seems to match his play at Texas.
Will Richardson – 6’6″ – 306 – 35 1/4″ Arm Length – NC State
His feet come together when moving laterally, and he bends more at the waist. Richardson looks to be a decent athlete but looks off-balance. His kick slide was excellent. The NC State product appeared very strong and thickly built. He plays a little too fast, which makes him look manic. Definitely not pretty in his movement. Mike Mayock says he isn’t pretty, but he gets the job done.
