The big day has arrived! With the 2017 NFL Draft set to kick off in less than an hour, the mock drafters and prognosticators must sit back and watch the magic happen. For purposes of not going insane trying to predict every single trade, I’ll break down each prospect by round.
So, without further ado, based on my research over the last year and Pete Carroll’s wonderful #SeahawksDraftClues, I present to you my final 2017 Hawk Mock! Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
Forrest Lamp, OL, Western Kentucky
If Seattle is able to trade up in the round, Forrest Lamp is the target. If not and Lamp is off the board, expect to see Tre’Davious White of LSU.
Delano Hill, S, Michigan
A versatile in-the-box safety with great tackling ability who should see plenty of playing time from day one. There’s also a chance we could see Obi Melifonwu, Zay Jones, or Marcus Williams here.
Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming
Ultra-productive running back for a potent Wyoming offense. Immediately creates a great competition in the backfield heading into training camp.
Freak of an athlete that should immediately see time as a starter in nickel packages and on special teams as a return man.
Keion Adams, OLB, Western Michigan
A productive pass rusher with a basketball background? Checks off all the boxes for Seattle.
Algernon Brown, FB, BYU
The drafting of Brown would further serve to prove Seattle’s commitment to running the ball in 2017.
Blake Jarwin, TE, Oklahoma State
Seattle will look to add a tight end at some point during the draft, and Jarwin could make sense in the fifth round. If not Jarwin, their choice could be Steven Wroblewski of Southern Utah.
Jalen Reeves-Maybin, LB, Tennessee
Suffered through injuries last season, but tested well athletically and the Seahawks have seen Tennessee a number of times on the scouting circuit this season.
Skyler Howard, QB, West Virginia
One of the more underrated and skilled quarterbacks in this class. When you put on the tape, you can see a bit of Russ in his game.
Tim White, WR, Arizona State
A unique, Olympic-caliber athlete who could make an immediate impact in the Seattle return game from day one.
There you have it, folks. My final Seahawks’ board:
And, for the heck of it, here are some potential UDFA names to keep in mind:
Otha Peters, Jr.
