Seahawks 7-round draft: Final mock before the 2020 NFL Draft
By Lee Vowell
Pick 27 (59th overall) – Jonathan Greenard, edge rusher, Florida
I am just going to warn you, and this was unintentional, but this Seahawks mock draft ended up being very SEC-heavy. Nothing wrong with that really. The SEC puts out very good players. And Florida edge rusher Jonathan Greenard is a potentially very good NFL player.
The good thing for the Seahawks is that Greenard should still be around late in the second round. Most of the reason for this is Greenard broken his right hand in 2018 and seemed a bit hesitant with the hand in 2019. But this seems to be more mental than physical. Greenard still racked up 10 sacks and 16 tackles for loss in 2019.
Greenard started at Louisville and then transferred to Florida in his senior season. He is 6’3″ and 265 pounds or nearly what Frank Clark was when Seattle drafted Clark. Greenard is a good fit for Seattle and a great option with quickness and intelligence in round two.
Pick 32 (64th overall) – Justin Madubuike, defensive tackle, Texas A&M
I wrote a couple of months ago about Justin Madubuike’s potential of being the Seahawks first round choice. I don’t think he goes that high anymore but he could still be around when Seattle chooses later in the second round. And he is still a perfect fit for the Seahawks.
The one issue that might hold Madubuike back from being a higher-picked player is his size. He is 6’3″ and 300 pounds but he is also an interior defensive lineman that NFL offensive linemen might muscle around. I think Madubuike is more of a Michael Bennett-type and can be moved around the line with his quickness.
