Who the Seahawks will pick
Round 3, Pick 71: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC: St. Brown is a dynamic weapon that would boost this offense from the very beginning. He is so sure-handed and a very athletic receiver. He has some downfield capability, but I think he would serve best as a target over the middle because he’s likely to reel those throws in. There’s no doubt Russell Wilson would love this selection, as would Pete Carroll as St. Brown is a USC Trojan.
Round 4, Pick 114: Drew Dalman, C, Stanford: Dalman is a strong center who’s also mobile, a key to playing in Shane Waldron’s offense. Dalman could for sure push Ethan Pocic and maybe even win a starting job sometime this season. He would most certainly be start-ready by 2022 and could play in the Seahawks’ offense for many years.
Round 4, Pick 129: Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M: I believe Brown is severely underrated in this simulation, as well as in real life. He’s very quick off the snap and can overpower individual offensive linemen. Brown could play in a limited capacity this year, but be a star next year after Al Woods’ deal expires. I think Bobby Brown has staying power in the league and could be an excellent value in the 4th round.
Round 5, Pick 175: Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota: Here’s my favorite selection in the draft. A Round 5 corner who has the potential to overtake DJ Reed or Tre Flowers for a starting job on the outside this year, and one who could be a lockdown corner in 2022 and beyond. The sky is the limit for St-Juste. He’s perfect for Pete Carroll: 6’3″, 205 pounds and an 80″ wingspan. That’s 80. Inches. He’s a physical beast and just needs some development. I really hope this team can get St-Juste on Saturday.
Round 6, Pick 214: Dan Moore Jr., OT, Texas A&M: I tried to make this draft entirely different than my last. However, Moore is just too great a value in the late 6th round. Like I said in my last mock draft, Dan Moore can be a starting left tackle in this league in a year or two. I also think he can back Brandon Shell or Duane Brown up this year. He’s quick for his size and would be an excellent piece in the Waldron offense. Besides St-Juste, picking Moore this late would be the team’s biggest steal of the draft.
Round 7, Pick 256: Gerrid Doaks, RB, Cincinnati: Something just felt right about drafting a running back in the 7th round, given how well the Chris Carson pick in 2017 went. Doaks offers some skill in the pass-catching game, something this team should upgrade at this late in the draft. I think he would be an upgrade from Travis Homer right away, and has some potential to develop into a lead back, should this team move on from Carson in two years.
