Seahawks top 52 Big Board 46-52

46. Noah Sewell - LB

A physical and north/south type of player, Sewell is another player that I expect him to outperform where the media has him slipping to. Sewell is a solid bet to take late in Day 2.

47. Steve Avila - IOL

One of the most underrated players from the stunning TCU football team, Steve Avila has been a consistent gem at the guard position during his career in Fort Worth. His push to play center in the draft process should help him get drafted higher than expected.

48. Siaki Ika - DT

The man who blocks out the sun. Siaki Ika is the immovable object at the NT position. If the Seahawks are truly committed to building a 3-4 defense, Ika is a perfect fit for anchoring the D-line, allowing Dre' Jones to feast.

49. Will McDonald IV - Edge

A star in college, McDonald always produced for Iowa State in the Big 12. With Darrell Taylor in his last year of his contract, McDonald could step into his role in 2024.

50. Marvim Mims Jr. - WR

Despite some inconsistent QB play, Mims produced whenever he did get the ball at Oklahoma. A deep threat with breakaway speed, Mims and DK running deep would be tough to stop.

51. Julius Brents - CB

Last year the Seahawks struck gold with the raw, but massively talented Tariq Woolen. Julius Brents from Kansas State looks like a very similar player. At 6-2 200 lbs, Brents has all the physical tools to be a #1 level corner, but he needs some of that Pete Carroll magic to potentially have the biggest DB room in the league.

52. Clark Phillips III - CB

While Phillips may not have the size of a typical Seahawks DB, he's an absolute playmaker that could be a perfect fit in the slot. A 2022 All American, Phillips had six interceptions and 15 passes defended.
