A Couple of Really Intriguing Prospects for the Hawks




The last time I did a fan post, it was a mock draft for the Seahawks before the season started. Since then, Jordan Matthews and Jace Amaro have skyrocketed from where I projected them. Plus, I now feel much more solid about our receiving core than I did at the beginning of the season.

Since Jared Stanger is our normal specialist on looking at college players and has already covered many prospects in his "Gems" columns, I have a couple he hasn't mentioned that are severely underrated/underused by even their own team that I think would fit perfectly on ours. One was a guy I mentioned in my mock draft a few months ago, Isaiah Lewis from Michigan State. He's a 5'11" 210 pound safety with a whole lot of energy. He's listed as a strong safety, and loves hitting, but from what I've seen, I think he has the speed to play free safety too. I see him being a rotational 3rd safety, kinda like what we wanted Winston Guy to be.

The other player I really like is Kevin Norwood of Alabama. (I am a bit biased, seeing as though its kinda the school I go to, but it also means I've watched him ever since he was a freshman). He doesn't mess up. Ever. I don't think Norwood has ever dropped a catch in his life, and his body positioning in the air on jump balls is unreal. He tends to disappear for games at a time, then all of a sudden come in and make multiple third down catches jumping over two defenders and getting his feet in bounds. He's around 6'3" 200, and is pretty strong for a WR. Tends to drag a defender a little ways after a catch. He isn't that fast, but speed isn't his game anyway. He's the definition of a clutch, 3rd down receiver. Go watch his highlights from the 2011 BCS championship game where he schooled Tyrann Matthieu. I feel like Norwood would pair great with Russell Wilson, as Wilson loves to trust his receivers one on one down the sidelines (something A.J. McCarron does not do at Alabama)

Both of these guys are projected as late round prospects, and I really like both of them. Check em out if you get time!
