The Seahawks have finished taking the players they wanted to take in the 2021 NFL draft. 12s took to Twitter to react to Seattle’s picks. Seahawks fans’ reactions were mostly positive but there were some who wanted more.
I think the Seahawks actually did a fantastic job of choosing which players to take. Seattle came into the draft needing a few things but not having any positions that absolutely had to be fixed this year. This meant Seattle could pick for talent and get the best player they thought fit their system.
Picking receiver D’Wayne Eskridge in the second round is good for Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf and Seattle may have found their kick returner in 2021 too. Cornerback Tre Brown in round four could be a steal. But the biggest steal of all might be left tackle Stone Forsythe in round six. He could be a starter in a couple of seasons. But what did other12s takeaways from the 2021 draft?
12s react on Twitter to the Seahawks draft
This is a very well-critiqued tweet. Having the Seahawks sixth round pick as the best of the bunch is both good and bad. The good is that Stone could be a good starter at tackle one day and inexpensive. The bad is that Seattle only had three picks so one out of three is bad.
This is the opposite take. Eskridge was a good pick but the others not-so-much. I do think Seattle wanted to get faster and did. Plus, they got a huge tackle in Forsythe.
Great thoughts here. I like the idea of Fosythe being a movable piece along the line. He does need to gain weight but has great height and should be able to fill out his frame.
