Player 4: Jason Pinnock, CB
If the Seahawks decide to wait until late in the draft to target a sleeper, Jason Pinnock is one to keep your eyes on.
Pinnock’s measurements/ testing:
- Height: 6’0″
- Weight: 205lbs
- Arm-length: 32 3/8 inch
- 40-yard dash: 4.49 seconds
- 3-cone: 6.9 seconds
- Short shuttle: 4.1 seconds
- Vertical jump: 39.5 inches
- Broad jump: 128 inches
- Bench press: 15 reps
Pinnock is an incredibly quick corner. His hips are incredibly fluid and his backpedaling is solid. He plays very physical football and disengages from blocks effectively.
Despite posting a very solid 40-yard dash time, he doesn’t play up to that speed. This isn’t necessarily uncommon. Playing speed and straight-line speed are two completely animals. The issue with this is he has had a problem with getting beat deep because of it.
If Seattle wants to wait in the draft to address this need, Pinnock is a very intriguing option. Pete Carroll is a firm believer he can make any secondary player a star, so why overdraft. So long as the player has the intangibles to work with, Carroll can mold them into a starter.
Jason Pinnock looks like a perfect late-round project for Pete Carroll to work on next year.
Round projection: 6-7th round.
