Grading the Seahawks picks rounds 5 through 7

Round 5, Pick 151: Defensive end Mike Morris, Michigan

Morris is a big defensive end who should also be stout against the run. He is 6'5" and 275 pounds and will likely add more weight once in an NFL weight-lifting program. Morris might even add enough girth to move inside to tackle. But he has enough strength to get reps as part of a rotation for Seattle in 2023 and Morris can be used on any down.

Grade: B

Round 5, Pick 154: Center Olusegun Oluwatimi, Michigan

Seattle needed a center and they found one with the 6'2 1/2" and 310 pound Oluwatimi. Oluwatimi is strong enough to play in the NFL, but he lacks great balance. He is made better by the players around him on the offensive line than him elevating the line as a whole. He is a smart player, though, and should be able to call out the line alignments well.

Grade: C

Round 6, Pick 198: Safety Jerrick Reed II, New Mexico

Reed might be a sixth-round pick but in a few years he could prove much more valuable. He has the speed to play in the NFL and is a very good tackler for his size. He also isn't shy and doesn't back away from hitting hard. He is a little small at 5'10" and 195 pounds, though, so the question is how well he can hold up in the league.

Grade: B (but could be an A+ one day)

Round 7, Pick 237: Running back Kenny McIntosh, Georgia

With the Seahawks' final pick, they chose their second running back of the draft. McIntosh, at the stage of the draft he was chosen, could not have been a better choice. He can catch well, block well, and create yards in short-yardage situations. He is capable of being a three-down back, though he will simply be depth in Seattle. Still, Seattle rebuilt its running back room in this draft and McIntosh will be a key to the unit in the future.

Grade: A+
