Seahawks Day 3 picks
Seahawks fourth round, pick 125 - Tight end Bryson Nesbit, North Carolina
Nesbit currently is a better receiver than a blocker. He will gain strength once in an NFL weight training program, however, and could bulk up to about 260 pounds. He has the frame for it as he is 6'6". But what Nesbit does do well (i.e. catching the football), he does extremely well.
In 2022, Nesbit was fourth in the nation in yards per reception among tight ends at 15.3 yards per catch. He also had 4 touchdowns. Nesbit gets to play with quarterback Drake Maye at UNC, though, so Nesbit's production and draft value could increase quite a bit in 2023.
Seahawks fifth round, pick 147 - Offensive tackle Robert Scott, Jr., Florida State
Scott has good size at 6'5" and 315 pounds. He does struggle at times with fast edge rushers, but I have the Seahawks taking him in the fifth round as a projected backup to Charles Cross. While Seattle struck gold in the 2022 draft with tackles Cross and Abe Lucas, Seattle also needs to add depth and Scott should be good enough to do that.
Seahawks sixth round, pick 179 - Defensive tackle Gabe Hall, Baylor
A third defensive tackle? Why not? Taking another one in the sixth round makes complete sense, too, as this is where a team wants to find depth at spots. Hall isn't overly athletic but he has great lower body strength and good size. He will eat up blockers in the NFL and allow the linebackers to clean up.
