The Seahawks will have 8 draft selections to work from
I ran through draft simulation, after draft simulation. I used multiple websites, as well as my knowledge base to create a big board. This draft should suffice in filling all holes on the roster and give long-term potential to tap from.
Let’s look into what Seattle can accomplish with this new draft stash:
Pick #93: Brady Christensen, C
Brady Christensen is one of the most explosive athletes in this draft class. This is actually an understatement. He is one of the most explosive testers ever. He posted a perfect 10.00 RAS (relative athletic score), tied for the highest score ever recorded when projecting at the center position.
Christensen played tackle in college (BYU). However, due to his body type, he projects better inside. Despite his elite athleticism, don’t be surprised if he falls in this draft range. He is old for entering the draft (24 years old) and shorter than the normally desired arm length (32.25″). He has the chance to be an absolute steal.
Pick #104: D’Wayne Eskeridge, WR
D’Wayne Eskeridge was about as hot of a name as they came after the Senior Bowl. Since that time, his buzz has died down considerably. He is one of the most electric players on tape in this draft. His elusiveness, craftiness, and ability to create separation are elite. He will fall farther than many expect due to his collegiate level of competition and a so-so pro day. He would make a perfect WR3 in Seattle’s offense.
Pick #131: Rodarius Williams, CB
When you think of a Seahawks-style cornerback, you think of a long, tough, and agile corner. Looking through the draft, there aren’t many players who fit the bill better than Williams. Measuring at 6’0″, 190lbs with solid across the board testing between agility, size, and explosiveness. He looks like a Seahawks staple.
Pick #157: Tommy Doyle, OT
As it is today, Seattle doesn’t have any contingency plan in place for Duane Brown and Brandon Shell at tackle. Tommy Doyle is a long and athletic tackle who plays with a nasty demeanor on the field. He lives to plow his opponents into the dirt.
He also tested extremely well for the tackle position. He is 6’8″, 320lbs, with 35-inch arms and posted elite numbers for all the explosive and agility testing. Let him sit and develop behind Duane Brown for a year. Doyle has a sky-high potential; he just needs time to work on mechanics.
