Seahawks next three picks

Round 3 Pick 83: Julius Brents, CB, K-State

Brents is the natural 2023 comparison to 2022 star rookie Tariq Woolen. With Brents at 6’4″ and 205 pounds, it’s hard not to see the comp. An extremely raw, but talented corner, Brents had a solid season for the Big 12 champs and showed out in their upset win over TCU. While Michael Jackson had a solid season as Seattle’s #2 CB, a guy like Brents is a fascinating project.

Round 4 Pick 123: Mike Morris, DE, Michigan

The Seahawks selected a big defensive end in the first round with Lukas Van Ness, and they nab another to really need up their 3-4 defense with Michigan’s Mike Morris. Morris had a fantastic season for Michigan, recording 7.5 sacks in 12 games for the Wolverines, and is a great DE rotational player for Boye Mafe.

Round 5 Pick 153: Nathaniel Dell, WR, Houston

If I told you the Seahawks selected a wide receiver who in the past two seasons had nearly 200 receptions, 2,700 yards and 29 touchdowns, you’d be stoked with that 1st round pick. In Round 5, the Seahawks drafted such a talent in Nathaniel “Tank” Dell.

Dell has been arguably the best slot receiver and punt/kick returner for the Houston Cougars for the past two seasons. Why is he not drafted higher? Cause he’s only 5’10” and 155 pounds. It’s a risk-taking such a diminutive player, but Dell has the speed and route running to be both a solid 4th wide receiver deep threat, as well as a return star.
