Time to add some quality depth for the Seahawks

With the 220th pick, I moved back to defense. As the Seahawks have three new safeties, why not add a fourth, right? Once again, I drafted a player I took in last week's mock draft. This time, I picked up Nebraska safety Omar Brown in the sixth round with the 220th overall pick. As I wrote last week, Brown's versatility is a major selling point. With 410 snaps at CB in 2021, then 434 as a slot corner, 147 in the box, and 60 as a deep safety, Brown can line up virtually anywhere on the field. NFL Draft Diamonds cites his quickness and high football IQ for their expectations that he'll produce at the next level. I have to say, I agree.

You made it to the end of yet another mock draft with me, good 12s. Eleven picks are a lot, so thanks. Your reward is another guard for the Hawks at pick 235, C.J. Hanson of Holy Cross. He's PFF's eighth-ranked guard, rated as the 232nd overall pick. The consensus Big Board sees him as the 224th-ranked prospect, while NFL Draft Buzz basically puts him out of the draft at number 263. That's okay, I'll take the 6'5" 300 lb redshirt senior anyway. At 300 pounds, he's pretty light, at the 13th percentile for interior linemen.

In four seasons for the Crusaders (not including one snap as a freshman), Hanson allowed a total of 20 hurries, six QB hits, and zero sacks for 2,273 snaps. That, my friends, is a lot of football. Every snap was at right guard, so it's a pretty safe bet that's where he'll land in the NFL.

As Lance Zierlien wrote for the NFL's draft site, Hanson will have to add significant strength and mass to compete in the NFL, regardless of his excellent technique. It's one thing to shut down opposing tackles in the Patriot League, but there will definitely be an adjustment to the competition in the NFL. Thank goodness Aaron Donald retired. And with that, this mock draft is retired as well.
