Round 4 Pick 118: Junior Colson, linebacker, Michigan

Did I say that I like this Michigan defense? I really like this defense, and Junior Colson is the quarterback of this high-level unit.

An incredible story of heartbreak and perseverance, Colson was once an orphan due to the destruction of the Haiti earthquake in 2010 before being adopted and growing up in the United States. Now, Colson is one of the most talented linebackers in college.

The 6'2" and 225 lbs junior could potentially return to Michigan next year, but with a successful playoff run, I expect him to declare. Colson is a hard-hitting tackler who needs to improve on actually finishing the tackles, but the potential is all there. A ceiling pro comparison I have for Colson is New Orleans LB Demario Davis. 

Round 5 Pick 149: Cade Stover, TE, Ohio State

Whether we're in a rebuild, or still trying to be contenders with a rookie quarterback, I'd like to see the Seahawks get younger and cheaper in certain positions, with tight end being one of them. 

Cade Stover is a reliable pass catcher and a good to great blocker who could be a valuable safety net for a young quarterback in Jayden Daniels. Stover can get lost in the shuffle of all the talent that is around Columbus, Ohio, but he could have a stronger career in the NFL.
