Salter seven-round mock Draft: Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks, have been a good team in 2020. While they have struggled on defense a bit, things seem to be picking up, after a few healthy gets and trading DE Carlos Dunlap. Led by a strong offense, the Seahawks are well on their way to another playoff run. With that being said it is never too early to look towards the NFL Draft. In need of some help in a few different areas, GM John Schneider has some work to do. Luckily this is one place he truly shines.

2nd RD) CB Rodarius Williams, Oklahoma State

It is no secret the Seahawks are in need of defensive help. I decided to start on the backend, with a young man who has the tools and swagger to be a legit shutdown CB, at the next level. Adding Williams, to this defense will give the Hawks’ a true number 1, for the first time since all-pro Richard Sherman. Williams can play in man or in the zone, as well as help on special teams. His aggressive nature and nose for the ball fit perfectly for a Pete Carroll, defense.

4th RD) Edge Kingsley Jonathan, Syracuse

Kingsley, has the skill set, that defensive coordinators, covet at this level. He has a very high motor, and a violent nature while attacking an offense. While he is a star off the edge and pass-rushing, he can set the edge and stop the run just as well. The Hawks, have been in a desperate search of another pass rusher, and Jonathan, can be that man.

5th RD) OT/OG Donavaughn Campbell, LaTech

The closer we get to the Draft, the higher I believe Campbell will be pushed up Draft boards. He is a big man, with athletic feet, and a nasty attitude. He is a true tone-setter, as he looks for contact, and loves to bring the fight to the defense. The Seahawks, are in need of a guy like Campbell. Who can play and be a starter at either guard or tackle? I personally feel he could be the starting right tackle for years to come. Protecting the franchise Russel Wilson, should be job one every year, and Drafting Campbell would be a giant step in that direction.

7th RD) DB Sterling Weatherford, Miami (OH)

Weatherford, is another prospect, that I believe will be flying up draft boards, as we get towards the Draft. Like Campbell, he may not be here in this round I am drafting him at, but for now, this is more about player profiles, that would fit the Hawks. Weatherford is a guy that can play anywhere on the backend. A legit safety, that can play in the box, and help the run and rush the passer. As well as a good cover guy, that can take away a TE or a slot WR. While the Hawks, traded for Jamaal Adams, he is built to play in the box, like a quicker LB. So having a guy like Weatherford, playing on the backend, would be a huge get for this team.
