Seahawks add immediate contributors

As promised, we have arrived at the entire point of this mock draft: the players themselves. Also as promised, the Seahawks landed 18 players in this mockup. For those of you who may think this was more mockery than mock, blame the software that placed so little value on future draft picks. Their simulation does allow a "free for all" mode, similar to Pro Football Focus's "force trade" option, but believe me, it took some major finagling to work some of these deals. So: the picks are in!

Braden Fiske, Round 2, Pick 49, Defensive Tackle

Like many players in this year's draft, the redshirt senior had an extra year of eligibility due to the lost COVID season. He transferred to Florida State after five years at Western Michigan. In the past three seasons, he's totaled 29 tackles for a loss, 77 hurries, and 18 sacks.

Cooper Beebe, Round 3. Pick 81, Guard

The Kansas State senior is the consensus choice as the best pure guard in this class, and it isn't even close. His run-blocking skills are strong, but his claim to fame is pass-blocking. He's played some tackle but has over 1,800 snaps at left guard. In the past 40 starts, he's allowed 20 hurries and two sacks. He's a year-one starter, no question.

Christian Haynes, Round 3, Pick 82, Guard

That worked out so well at 81, why not double down with the very next pick? In the drafts that don't choose Beebe first, Haynes is the man you'll find instead. A four-year starter at UConn, all of his snaps came at right guard. He grades slightly above Beebe in run-blocking, and a bit behind in the passing sets. He would certainly push for a starting role as a rookie.

Jonah Elliss, Round 4, Pick 97, Edge

To say the Utah junior has football in his blood would be a gross understatement. His father, Luther, was a 10-year NFL veteran, and he has three brothers who've all played in the league. His game exploded last year, as he posted 16 tackles for a loss, 24 hurries, 13 sacks, and found time to break up three passes. PFF graded the 6'2" 249 lb 21-year-old above the 90th percentile in pass rush. And yes, it's two "Ls" and two "Ss".

Kris Abrams-Draine, Round 4, Pick 102, Cornerback

The consensus big board projects him as the 84th overall pick, so he's a solid value here. Yes, the Seahawks are stocked at cornerback, but Seattle has exactly one CB under contract after 2026. The 5'11" 179 Missouri senior switched from wide receiver to corner after his freshman season. If that doesn't sound like a familiar story, turn in your 12s card immediately. He led the Tigers in pass breakups in each of the last three seasons, totaling 34 in all. Oh, and he's on the shortlist of players that could impact the new kickoff rule, along with a later selection.
