Seahawks day 2 2020 NFL Draft picks: Fans react on Twitter
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks made (blank) picks on day 2 of the 2020 NFL Twitter, including second-round pick Darrell Taylor. How did 12s react on Twitter?
The Seahawks started day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft with 3 picks combined in the second and third rounds. Seattle needed to get an edge rusher, maybe a running back, some offensive line help and potentially a receiver. The Seahawks went for two of those categories and worked a couple of trades.
Seattle ended up with just two picks on Friday but now have four in rounds four through six on Saturday. They will probably be drafting for depth, possibly even get a backup quarterback. I would definitely think there might be a couple of more defensive line picks left in this draft for Seattle.
On Friday, Seattle chose edge rusher Darrell Taylor from Tennessee in the second round and guard Damien Lewis from LSU in the third round. How did fans and pundits react on Twitter? Well, reviews were a bit mixed with Taylor, though I think he will be good. And there was more universal love for Lewis.
Here were some of the comments.
Taylor went ahead of Baun and Epenesa so they were still on the board for the Seahawks. But Seattle chose a player a little bigger than Baun and a bit faster than Epenesa. Trust in Pete Carroll and John Schneider, 12s should.
Mr. Gangle did not like any of the Seahawks first two picks, Taylor or first-round choice Jordyn Brooks. Everyone has their right to their opinion, and Mr. Gangle might be more correct than I am, but I hope for the Seahawks sake he is wrong.
Simply said, I like this tweet from PFF.
This is where the more general happiness of Seattle selecting Damien Lewis begins. Seattle wants bullies on their offensive line and Lewis is one.
Passion about the game? That sounds like the perfect Pete Carroll football player.
This is an interesting point and a risk that Seattle didn’t want to take. The Seahawks have two guards penciled in to start with D.J. Fluker and Mike Iupati that are aging. Lewis could be a starter in 2021.
And this is a very important point. What should the Seahawks do with Justin Britt? He has a cap hit of $11 million in 2020 and Seattle could cut him and use that money to sign an edge rusher.
Saturday should be an interesting day for Seattle with four picks. They still need defensive line help and a running back. Will they get them in the draft? One never knows with the Seahawks.
