Seahawks round 6 and 7 picks

Round 6 Pick 198: Dylan Horton, DL, TCU

Horton is a name nobody was talking about for the NFL, and then he single-handedly demolished the best offensive line in college football in Michigan at the Fiesta Bowl. Horton, a transfer that has looked good as an LB, DE, and DT for TCU, recorded 6 tackles, 4 sacks, and a pass deflection in their victory.

Horton’s versatility is definitely intriguing for a team like Seattle that is playing mixtures of a 3-4 and 4-3 defense. At 6’4″ and, 244 lbs, Horton could be a star special teamer while getting snaps at DE.

Round 7 Pick 237: Dee Winters, Linebacker, TCU

I have the Seahawks double dipping on the TCU Horned Frogs with their final draft picks, this time grabbing Dee Winters. While Horton was fantastic for TCU in the trenches, linebacker Dee Winters was the best player on the field for TCU’s defense in their shocking CFP Semifinal upset over Michigan. The defensive MVP of the Fiesta Bowl, Winters had 7 tackles, with 3 going for a loss, as well as a 29-yard pick-six in the 4th quarter that helped hold off the Wolverines.

Undersized at around 5’11” and 225 lbs, this small but speedy linebacker packs a massive punch when he hits you. His speed and ability to be a potential hybrid on defense while excelling on special teams should be a major interest for a Seahawks team that needs to get quicker and more athletic at the LB spots.
