Seahawks last two picks

Round 5 Pick 156: Brenton Cox Jr., Edge, Florida

Cox Jr. has the talent and potential to be a Day Two pick, but getting kicked out of Georgia and mutually agreeing to part ways at Florida early this season are legitimate causes for concerns. As he transitions from defensive end to an outside linebacker, making sure he fits the Seahawks’ culture could lead to a potential replacement for Darrell Taylor in 2024.

Round 6 Pick 198: Tyson Bagent, QB, Shepherd

In this scenario, I believe the Seahawks bring back Geno Smith, and while Drew Lock is promising, I’d still like to see a young QB added to see what they have. Tyson Bagent is an interesting story and could be an intriguing backup QB in Seattle.

A record-breaking star at DII Shepherd, Bagent threw for 159 total touchdowns in his career. He has NFL QB size and displays a good arm. While he may not have wowed anyone at the Senior Bowl, he performed well enough to appear that he belongs. In a QB draft class that falls off the cliff early, the options may be barren, so I’d be interested in the Seahawks taking a chance on a talented kid who’s out to prove he belongs.
