Hawk Mock: The Final Board


The moment is finally here. Just about an hour from now, the NFL Draft will get underway in Chicago and we’ll get our first glimpse into how teams finish their preparations for the 2016 season. After the three-day event comes to a conclusion, grades will be thrown around left and right, all in the hopes that it will give a clearer picture as to which franchise will host the Lombardi Trophy next February.

After countless hours of researching in the depths of social media, film study, and advanced statistics, I have come up with 20 players whom I think could very well hear their names called by the Seattle Seahawks over the next several days. Players are listed in the general order of where I believe they may be drafted, and I’ve also added some potential UDFA targets:

Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss
Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA
Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State
Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn
TJ Green, DB, Clemson
Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
Kalan Reed, CB, Southern Miss
Connor McGovern, OG, Missouri
Chris Moore, WR, Cincinnati
Harlan Miller, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
Joe Dahl, OL, Washington State
Marshaun Coprich, RB, Illinois State
Ken Crawley, CB, Colorado
Stephen Weatherly, OLB, Vanderbilt
Ryan Malleck, TE, Virginia Tech
Sebastian Johansson, OG, Marshall
Cory Johnson, DT, Kentucky
Joel Heath, OL, Michigan State
Christian French, OLB, Oregon
Joel Stave, QB, Wisconsin

UDFA targets:

Kentrell Brice, S, Louisiana Tech
Vernon Adams, Jr., QB, Oregon
Jaydon Mickens, WR, Washington
Darius Jackson, RB, Eastern Michigan
Devin Lucien, WR, Arizona State
Vi Teofilo, OL, Arizona State
Michael Caputo, S, Wisconsin
Marcus Henry, C, Boise State
Lene Maiava, OL, Arizona
William Parks, S, Arizona
Marquez North, WR, Tennessee
Justin Murray, OL, Cincinnati
Dez Stewart, WR, Ohio Dominican
Zac Brooks, RB, Clemson
George Fant, TE, Western Kentucky
Ufomba Kamalu, OL, Miami
Kache Palacio, FB, Washington State
Torian White, OL, Hampton
Terenn Houk, TE, BYU
Tevin Carter, S, Utah
Gabe Hughes, TE, Florida Tech
Perez Ford, OLB, Northern Illinois
Kyle Peko, DL, Oregon State
Myke Tavarres, OLB, Incarnate Word
Connor Wujciak, DL, Boston College
Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU

Finally, for more specific predictions, I’ll go pick-by-pick. It should be noted that I expect Seattle to trade down from #26 and up from pick #90.

Round 1 | Pick 26 | No. 26 overall – TJ Green, S, Clemson
Round 2 | Pick 25 | No. 56 overall – Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech
Round 3 | Pick 27 | No. 90 overall – Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
Round 3 | Pick 35 | No. 97 overall – Connor McGovern, OL, Missouri
Round 4 | Pick 26 | No. 124 overall – Caleb Benenoch, OL, UCLA
Round 5 | Pick 34 | No. 171 overall – Chris Moore, WR, Cincinnati
Round 6 | Pick 40 | No. 215 overall – Kalan Reed, CB, Southern Miss
Round 7 | Pick 4 | No. 225 overall – Joel Heath, DL/OL, Michigan State
