Seahawks early Day 3 picks

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 151: Cory Trice, Cornerback, Purdue

The redshirt senior out of Purdue, Trice is a massive cornerback who started his career as a safety. At 6-3 215 lbs, his size is comparable to Seahawks star corner Tariq Woolen. Much like Woolen, Trice had moments of brilliance and struggle learning playing corner.

In Seattle’s system, he could be a strong special teams player, while developing into Woolen’s partner down the road. Too much potential here to not take him at pick #151. I believe he will fare a little better than Purdue did in the NCAA Tournament.

Round 5 Pick 154: Roschon Johnson, Running Back, Texas

Another Longhorn, what’s wrong with me? While Bijan Robinson received all the accolades at Texas, his backup is also a pretty darn good ball player. Johnson totaled 682 yards and 6 touchdowns on just over 100 touches as a backup.

Danny Kelly, senior staff writer at the Ringer, recently tweeted out a creepily similar between Johnson and former Seahawks back Chris Carson. Carson exploded when he got to the NFL, and with the departures, Seattle is facing at the running back position, Johnson is a perfect addition.
