NFL Draft 2013 Seahawks Sleepers: DL Earl Okine, Florida

The "Seahawks Sleepers" series is a flurry of quick scouting reports on some players that I've identified as potential targets for Seattle. My goal with this series is to highlight a few players that John Schneider, Pete Carroll and their scouting team might be interested in, and to give a brief synopsis as to why. For the most part, I'm high on the guys that I'll be pointing out - and I'll be monitoring them during the Draft and in Rookie Free Agency. Also, for the most part, these are mid- to later-round prospects because let's be honest, you're probably sick of reading about first- and second-round type guys.

DT/DE Earl Okine, Florida - 6'7, 284

At Florida's pro day on March 16, Okine ran a 4.98 40, posted a 33-inch vert and put up 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. More impressively, though, was his lateral agility testing, and he posted a 4.65 short shuttle and 6.99 3-cone - both very good for a player his size.

Okine was a part of the defensive rotation on Florida's D-line but hasn't really gotten much buzz. Based on his height and weight though, I could certainly see Seattle taking an interest in him either in the 7th round or in rookie free agency.

Why Seattle?

Dan Quinn connection. His absurd length and top-tier athleticism. Was a TE convert at in spring ball going into last season but apparently switched back to defense by the fall. Regardless, great athlete, huge, long frame, intriguing athlete.
