The Seahawks have lined up a few more 2012 NFL Draft prospect visits in the last couple days so I'll continue to update the list that Davis and I are trying to compile. Added recently are Boise State safety George Iloka, a prospect that I'm pretty keen on, and Boston College CB Donnie Fletcher, Cincinnati TE Adrien Robinson, and Beloit TE/WR Derek Carrier. Also, they've lined up a visit with LSU DT Michael Brockers and UCLA RB Derrick Coleman.
George Iloka is a 6'4, 225 pound cornerback that is projected at safety in the NFL and could possibly provide some depth and versatility in the defensive secondary. Conceivably, he could play corner, slot corner (nickel) or even strong safety - and we all know that Pete Carroll and John Schneider love this type of player, especially taking his size into account. Considering he is a bit of a Kam Chancellor clone - both in size and experience (Kam played CB at Virginia Tech as well), I don't doubt the Seahawks have legitimate interest. He'd probably have to be taken in the 2nd round though, possibly as late as the third.
Donnie Fletcher is a 6'1, 195 pound corner out of Boston College that was a Combine snub this year. He's very fast - running 4.35 at his pro day in the 40, and fits the profile as a speedy, long, 'angular' (whatever the hell that means, but I hear it all the time) cornerback/safety hybrid that the Seahawks seem to have a never ending interest in. Rob Rang and NFLDraftScout.com have him projected as a sixth round pick.
TE Adrien Robinson is an intriguing prospect. According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, "Robinson, 23, is extremely athletic at nearly 6-foot-5 and 264 pounds, running the 40-yard dash in 4.51 and 4.58 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. He registered a 39 1/2 inch vertical leap, an 11-3 broad jump, an 11.59 in the 60-yard shuttle and a 7.11 three-cone drill." Dayum. Another TE prospect that fits the Seahawks M.O. of looking for gifted athletes with elite speed and agility in the later rounds. He caught 29 passes and five touchdowns in his college career and is projected as a later-round pick.
TE/H-back Derreck Carrier is a 6'3, 238 pound WR/TE/HB tweener with very solid athleticism and agility. Ran 4.5 in the 40, 6.65 in the 3-cone drill, and 4.08 in the short shuttle - all very good times for a player his size. Three-sport athlete for small school Beloit - track, hoops, and football.
UCLA RB/FB Derek Coleman was a 2nd team All-Pac12 running back and at 5'10, 230, fits the profile the Seahawks have been looking at as a bigger, more physical power back, ostensibly meant to complement or spell Marshawn Lynch. He rushed for 765 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2011.
