Seattle Seahawks: B+

The Seahawks surprised some by using a first-round pick taking offensive tackle Germain Ifedi in the first round. He has off-the-charts tools, but needs developing. Reed was a steal of this year's draft. He and Ahtyba Rubin give Seattle a nice pair of run stoppers in the middle. Seattle grabbed a duo of running backs in C.J. Prosise and Alex Collins. Both are talented starting-caliber players. Prosise is a really good receiver and Collins has some pop in his game. Jefferson is an interesting late-round pick. He's a gap-shooting lineman who had 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in 2015.

Germain Ifedi

OT, Texas A&M

Ifedi addresses an obvious need for Seattle on the offensive line and could potentially play tackle or guard in the Seahawks' system. He was projected to land somewhere in the late 1st or early 2nd round by most outlets.


Jarran Reed

DT, Alabama

The Seahawks are beefing up in the trenches, and Reed is known as a big-time run stuffer. A player close to Pete Carroll's heart. With Brandon Mebane gone in free agency, this pick makes a lot of sense as a potential replacement. Reed is the final player in the Green Room to come off the board.


C.J. Prosise

RB, Notre Dame

C.J. Prosise adds depth at the running back position and gives Seattle a potential third-down option. Prosise is a receiver-turned-running back and excels in the passing game. I like the pick a lot.


Nick Vannett

TE, Ohio State

Vannett adds depth to the position and provides a hedge for Luke Willson should Willson leave in free agency after next year. He projects as more of a traditional style tight end with some upside as a pass catcher, but hopefully has a future blocking in-line for Seattle in the run game as well. Ideally he's the Zach Miller type of tight end in the Seahawks system.


Rees Odhiambo

OT, Boise State

Odhiambo adds some more beef to the Seahawks' trenches, and while he played tackle at Boise State he's projected inside at guard. Based on his size and where he played in school, he'll likely compete with Justin Britt and Kristjan Sokoli for the left guard spot.


Quinton Jefferson

DT, Maryland

Jefferson projects as an attacking nickel three-technique, sort of in the mold of a Jordan Hill, who will be a free agent after this season. Seattle looking to add some depth and talent to the interior line in this draft, obviously.


Alex Collins

RB, Arkansas

Collins is a tough, physical, and elusive back. He did not test well from an athleticism standpoint but in many ways he reminds me of a former Seahawks pick in Spencer Ware. Just a tough, between the tackles runner. He'll be the thunder of this draft class if C.J. Prosise is the lightning. The Seahawks have an identity and they're sticking to it. This reminds of 2013, when Seattle drafted Christine Michael and Spencer Ware in the 2nd/6th even though Marshawn Lynch was still in his prime. Can never have enough tough, physical runners.


Joey Hunt


The Seattle Seahawks have selected TCU center Joey Hunt with their 6th Round pick, 215th overall in the NFL Draft. This is an obvious position of need for the Hawks, and with Patrick Lewis as the projected starter there, Hunt provides some depth and competition. He is undersized at 6'2, 295, but is known to be a strong pass protector from the middle, and per PFF, "did not allow a single sack or hit on the quarterback in 445 pass-block snaps last season."


Kenny Lawler

WR, California

Brooks is the third running back that the Seahawks took in this draft, so I think it's safe to say that they plan to continue stressing their run game.


Zac Brooks

RB, Clemson
