Round 5, Pick 148
Pick: OG Dohnovan West, Arizona State
In writing this article, we are under the assumption that Russell Wilson is still the Seattle Seahawks quarterback. With that said, fixing the offensive line should be the main focus of this draft. With already selecting Kinnard in the second round, I have the Seahawks adding more reassurance in the fifth round. Offensive linemen Dohnovan West out of Arizona State.
Throughout his career at ASU, West has shown he is versatile enough to play multiple positions. He has played tackle, guard and center. That unique ability is something that may catch the eye of Seattle as that was one of the primary reasons they drafted Ethan Pocic out of LSU a couple of years back. With some aging guys like Duane Brown and Gabe Jackson currently on the line, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to draft someone like West who can be groomed by these veterans.
Round 7, Pick 222: S Jalen Pitre, Baylor
The Seattle Seahawks do not own a 6th round pick as they traded it earlier in the year to the Jacksonville Jaguars for CB Sidney Jones. I know many will be surprised to see that I don’t have the Seahawks selecting a quarterback. With their final pick in the draft, I see them selecting S Jalen Pitre out of Baylor.
Given the injury history of both Jamal Adams and Marquise Blair, Seattle can use depth at this position. Granted, 7th round picks are merely just flyers. But, you truly never know what can blossom out of this. Pitre has pretty good height and size for his position. His hard hitting ability along his solid man coverage skills may even allow Seattle to try him out as a nickel back in certain packages. If he were to be their 7th round pick, he has a high ceiling given the expectations that come along with being the last pick.
