Seahawks mock draft: Day 3

player. 878. . Linebacker. Hawkeyes . Jack Campbell. 4

If Campbell is still around in the fourth round, and according to Pro Football Network’s mock simulator for this mock he was (thankfully), then the Seahawks will get a steal. Campbell is a beast against the run and this is exactly what Seattle needs. He also has the ability to chase down quarterbacks but his strength is the Seahawks’ weakness (stopping the run) and Campbell will immediately help fix Seattle’s D.

Safety. Buckeyes . Ronnie Hickman. 5. player. 812.

Seattle’s safeties have not been the strength that they were expected to be heading into 2022. Backup Ryan Neal is actually Pro Football Focus’s top-graded safety but does anyone expect Neal to start once Jamal Adams returns? No. And Neal could leave in free agency after this year. Hickman could help replace Neal as a backup for Seattle.

Isaiah McGuire. 5. player. 822. . Edge rusher. Tigers

Each season for Missouri, McGuire has improved his sack totals. In 2022, he had 8.5 in the tough SEC. McGuire is 6’4″ and 265 pounds so he is a bit too big to be a speed rusher and a bit too small to be a pure defensive end. He can be productive in the NFL as a situational pass rusher, however.

Running back. Bulldogs . Kenny McIntosh. 5. player. 814.

McIntosh has decent size at 6’1″ and 210 pounds and also has decent speed. He doesn’t have any plus-plus aspects of his game, though, and that will keep him from being taken high in the draft. But McIntosh can be used on all three downs – he is a good pass catcher – and would supply solid depth behind Walker.

Clayton Tune. 6. player. 881. . Quarterback. Cougars

Finally! The Seahawks draft their quarterback of the future! OK, I am joking a bit here.

Next. Four coaches worthy of replacing Pete Carroll. dark

No offense to Tune, but he probably isn’t going to be a long-term starter in the NFL. What he does offer is decent size with poise. If he comes in and learns an offense and can run that offense if called upon as a backup, that will be his key towards earning an NFL paycheck for several years.
