I'm always a fan of these Nigerian players. They typically have that quiet, humble mentality where you know they're coming to work. You can be assured they will play to their potential.

Guy had a crazy workout and we visited with him pre-draft. Never knew they were thinking of switching him to O-Line though... he's got off the charts athleticism.

Sokoli was 99.9th percentile for DTs. I am really interested about that conversion

Sokoli has comparable SPARQ ratings to JJ Watt. A ridiculous 150.

Tenessee Titans just grabbed Tre McBride three picks before us. Bummer.

How does a man with that type of athleticism have such poor production? Laughing

I think the Seahawks have pretty clear patterns in terms of drafting.

Early they take proven production (or an specific mindset for OL), later they take loads of athleticism hoping to one or two guys to pan out. They couldn't care less for production on later rounds. Specially for some guy that is converting to another position.

I also grew on believing a lot in Tom Cable. Watching this OL play in this year's playoffs in comparison to 2013, with almost the same personnel, made me a believer. Dude knows what he's doing.

Production doesn't just come based on athleticism. You have to be put in a position to use that athleticism to it's potential. Seahawks think he wasn't put in a position to maximize that.

Thank you swifttexan, I appreciate you putting this thread together when nobody else would.

Hope I get more time to delve into these prospects because I know next to nothing about everyone except Murphy.

I thought it was pretty cool! Maybe we can add the UDFA's to the thread also? I'd like to talk about the Arizona WR


As would I. Austin Hill may just have a future in this league, just needs to get his movement ability up to league standards. Right now he's just a big, slow possession receiver, but with more training and recovery time that could change.
I honestly haven't watched a ton of him, my college football/pac-12 obsessed friend was really pumped we picked him up though. Someone want to fill me in on him at a college level?

From what I've seen so far, he plays almost exclusively in the slot. Kinda odd for a guy who measures in around 6'3". Is there a lot of WR talent on the roster?

I'm watching pre-injury film, but he moves pretty well. He looks a little sluggish sometimes but I think that's more to do with him just being unrefined. He runs two nice seam routes in a row here:

https://youtu.be/Lj9m8FJ9zns?t=171

He's a willing blocker and stays in front of his guy as long as possible but I think he could put on another 15 lbs of muscle and it would really help him out.

He caught some nice balls while covered that were thrown up for him, I wish I could see him work from the outside. I did see him struggle to get off press once.

Makes a nice sideline catch here:

and here:
https://youtu.be/Lj9m8FJ9zns?t=375

He's smart with his downfield route running. It isn't really crisp, but he knows how to make himself get open. He seems like a pretty natural hands catcher and has good concetration.

Other than his 40, his movement skills are really good.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=108497&draftyear=2015&genpos=WR

He's between Amari Cooper and Kevin White in the 3-cone and 20SS. I really like the idea of him sitting on the PS/IR for a year and putting on some nice muscle mass and developing in the system

Post injury he struggled with his movement, that's my concern. Arizona does have some other talent at wideout but he was the premier guy as far as I was aware before the injury. In 2012 he was just dominant but hasn't been the same since.

He has #1 type potential but it''s buried under 2 years of struggle and injury.
