We are down to the last couple of weeks of the 2020 regular season, and through the first fourteen games, things have been unclear as to how good (or bad at times) the Seattle Seahawks, really are? While they have looked amazing at times, led by quarterback Russell Wilson. Most times, they have followed great moments, with a head-scratching play. Now, let’s be clear, I personally think the Hawks, can win the West, and be a contender, but to do so, they will need to continue the trend of better defensive play. As well as a more consistent offensive outlook. Looking ahead things get a bit more confusing, as the team, has multiple holes, that need to be addressed. Some more obvious than the other. With that said, I have decided to add three more names that could help the Seahawks, next season. These three players could interest the Seattle Seahawks, this coming draft.
1) DT Jaylen Twyman (PITT)
Let me start by saying, defensive tackle Jalen Twyman, is a complete monster. Blessed with great size (6-2 295), and the tools to use it correctly. He is a complete force in the middle of the field, as he adds value in both the run and passing game. He has a nose for the ball, and the football IQ, defensive coaches covet. I spoke to Twyman, a little while back and asked him about his play?
“I feel like I am a guy that will never be outworked. I work out all the time with Aaron (Donald), and he is always giving me good advice on how to approach the game. It all starts and ends with your own work. How much you put into it. I am a guy that my team can lean on, I will do what it takes to be successful.”
Adding Twyman would give the Hawks, a great running mate to add to Jarran Reed. A guy that can be just as dominant, if not even better.
2) CB Ambry Thomas (Michigan)
Let’s be honest, while the Seahawks defense has played better as of late. The truck-sized hole, on the outside, needs to be filled by better prospects. Enter Ambry Thomas, from the University of Michigan. A solid defender, in both man and zone. Thomas has the skill set you covet in your corners. He is able to cover an opponent’s best weapon. Thomas also adds value in the run game. He never seems to shy away from contact and loves to put his nose on the ball. The addition of Thomas would give Seattle, that true number one CB. Maybe even helping them find their way back to the old “Legion of Boom” days.
3) EDGE Greg Rousseau (Miami)
Ok, so this one might be a little tougher landing. In order to land Rousseau, the front office will have to trade into the first round to get him. But if they have a chance too, they should sprint to the podium. Rousseau is a wrecking ball on the edge of the defense. Able to help shut down the run, set the edge, and terrify quarterbacks at a high level. He has a great bend, a violent punch at the point of contact, and the rare speed you see for a guy his size. What stood out when speaking with the rising star, is his football IQ. A guy that never seems to be stressed by the big moments. Here is what he said when we sat down earlier this year.
“Man, I don’t listen to all the talk about draft status, and all that. I keep my mind and focus on what I can control. Everything else will take care of itself.”
Adding this monster of a man, to the edge of the Seattle defense, would be a huge get.
