IMO the BPA in the Seahawks draft range at the first round is DeMarcus Walker, and pass rush is ever a need. There's no way in hell a team like the Seahawks stop adding pass rushers, and I think he'd make a hell of a pick.

The second one imo is Budda Baker, but Budda fills more of a need.

Barring a disappointing combine, this guy is probably going in the first.
most places and people have him as a second rounder. I think his weight and speed at the combine will play a definite part in where he gets drafted

While he was electric in college, he wasn't Earl in coverage. I do think grabbing him at 58 could be difficult


His more common comp is Thyrann Mathieu without character concerns and strong leadership. With a strong combine that's a first round pick and the worry is going to be if he's actually on board by the time Seahawks pick at 26th.

He has big riser written all along his face. He is a better prospect than all of the DBs that went first round last season, imo, with the exception of Jaelen Ramsey and maybe Keanu Neal (who ppl was mocking like in third/fourth round a month prior to the Draft).

Rob Staton has talked a lot about Kevin King. I have to look further, but his profile makes a lot of sense to what the Seahawks generally looks for in CBs (short area quickness, lenght).

I have see the Mathieu comp. Earl played a lot more nickel in college than he ever has in the NFL. He was talked about as a CB by multiple outlets, at least for a time. As a defender, he reminds me more of Earl, at least to date. As a total body of work I see why people say Mathieu due to the return ability

I'm not sure King is worthy of a 1st, but I don't watch CB closely when watching UW play. With his physical tools, I could see him being gone before our 2nd as well

Not sure Baker falls out of the first unless he tests in the 4.5s>

He checks pretty much every other box, though I need to see him tackle a little more.

Thoughts on Malik Hooker?

Honestly haven't bothered to watch much of him. Sounds like he will go top 10

Lots of offseason surgery for him and is poised to miss the combine. Hopefully that inspires a slip.
