Round 5, Pick 152
After a very strong finish, many aren’t sure whether or not the Seahawks will be able to afford Rashaad Penny. The cheaper option would be in the draft. That is why I have them selecting Zamir White. White is a physical downhill runner who excels and in zone and gap run schemes. Although he has had two torn ACL surgeries, he ran a 4.4 at the combine and is considered the perfect thunder to pair with lightning.
Round 6, Pick 181 (via HOU)
Center Alec Lindstrom is known for his competitive spirit. He will fit in well with the Seahawks culture as he will be fighting for a spot on the roster and/or practice squad. He has certain things he needs to work on, but he has the intangibles to make a roster. He plays with grit and has a solid understanding of reading things at the line of scrimmage. As a prospect, I think he is what Pete Carroll is looking for this late in the draft.
Round 7, Pick 226
Alontae Taylor impressed at the combine as he ran one of the fastest 40-times. At 6-feet tall, 199 pounds, he is worth taking a chance on. The Seahawks secondary has had its struggles over the years, so it couldn’t hurt taking a guy who fits the mold of what they are looking for. He is physical, has good leadership skills and can probably make an early impact on special teams if he were to make the team.
