Seahawks 2023 NFL Draft Big Board: Sixth and seventh rounds cont.
There used to be a time when Seattle would find some gems in the undrafted free agent market. That seems less likely now but Poona Ford was a UDFA. Of course, players like Doug Baldwin were too so maybe some unknown diamond will find their way to Seattle after the draft. But for now, these are the best remaining targets that Seattle might choose.
47 Defensive lineman Trajan Jeffcoat, Missouri
Jeffcoat isn’t explosive but if he can add weight and muscle – about 20 pounds of it – he could turn into a decent rotational pass rusher along the interior. He is projected to go anywhere from the 6th round to UDFA.
48 Running back Re’Mahn Davis, Vanderbilt
In 2022, Vanderbilt was slight better than they normally are and a lot of the credit for that can be the strong running of Davis. He is more of a guy who will crank out a few yards at a time than an explosive back but he would be good depth for Seattle.
49 Edge rusher Brenton Cox, Jr., Florida
Cox will likely only ever be a pure pass rusher as he doesn’t have the girth to stop the run. That said, if he refines a move or three, he could help pressure quarterbacks on third down. The Seahawks can use all the pass rushers it can get.
50 Linebacker Mohamoud Diabete, Utah
Utah seems to just produce glue-type players and that is OK. Seattle loves those kinds of guys, especially on special teams.
