Draft pick gained from the Wagner trade
There are a lot of ways the Seahawks could go with this pick. I am going to go over my favorite players that would make the most sense for the team at this spot.
Draft: pick 17.
Jaycee Horn, CB: The Seahawks have not selected a cornerback before the third round in the Pete Carroll-John Schneider era. What a player to change the standard on. Horn is the perfect fit for the Seahawks. He is a long, lean and athletic corner. He is phenomenal in press coverage. He has fluid hips and great short-area quickness.
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB: Arguably the most athletic player in this draft. He is the Jamal Adams of the linebackers in this draft. He can play with his hand in the dirt, as a standup linebacker, or as a safety. He is that physically and cerebrally gifted. Move Jordyn Brooks to the middle linebacker and slot Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah as the weakside linebacker.
Christian Darrisaw, LT: Darrisaw is one of the top tackle prospects in this draft. He has great length, size, and lateral agility. Best of all, his ceiling is limitless. The amount of growth he has shown year after year is truly exciting. His technical refinement is phenomenal. His footwork is precise. Darrisaw has the potential of a franchise left tackle.
Alijah Vera-Tucker, LG: Vera-Tucker is an incredibly athletic prospect. He plays with phenomenal balance and body control. He is a people mover with the versatility to play guard or tackle. He should be a day one starter and is arguably the best guard prospect in the draft. Vera-Tucker won the Morris Trophy for the most outstanding offensive lineman this last season. He also was graded as the best tackle (he played LT last season) in the country, in terms of pass protection.
Terrace Marshall Jr, WR: If the Seahawks are finally, truly building around Russell Wilson, why not give him another elite target. Terrace Marshall Jr was ‘the other guy’ in the historic LSU offense with Joe Burrow, Justin Jefferson, and Ja’Marr Chase. Once those guys moved on, Marshall blossomed. He averaged over 100 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game this past season. He has great size at 6’3″, with excellent hands, physicality, and YAC ability. Best of all, he can play from every major alignment for wide receivers. A true weapon for the offense.
