Bill Connolly's Preview of the Monday Games (click)

Many, many flawed teams but a good number of prospects in all of the games that you'll want to be familiar with come spring. I can guarantee that a handful of these players will be linked to Seattle.

Liberty Bowl

Texas A&M

West Virginia

  • Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, 6'5" #300 - Once considered the most talented of the highly-touted trio of A&M tackles (Joeckel and Matthews),but may be a RT-only prospect.
  • Jarvis Harrison, G, 6'3" #325 - Massive interior blocker.
  • Deshazor Everett, CB, 5'11" #188 - Lacks a true niche but he's a big-time athlete who makes plays. A STs contributor, which is a big plus for him.
  • Cameron Clear, TE, 6'6" #278 - Pure run-blocking TE, an extra OT.
  • Malcome Kennedy, WR, 6' #205 - He caught 45 balls in A&M's pass-happy offense. Solid. Good run after catch.
  • Kevin White, WR, 6'3" #210 - If you think SEA should be in the WR market early then White is definitely on your list. JUCO transfer to a pass happy offense could be a project though.
  • Quinton Spain, G, 6'4" #332 - Even more massive interior blocker will be somewhat polarizing. Teams that favor road grater-types at G will like him. Teams that ask for more polish and movement probably won't. He's not as athletic as Carpenter but a similar type player.

Russell Athletic Bowl



  • Jordan Phillips, DT, 6'6" #334 - Redshirt Soph. If he declares he'll go high.
  • Eric Striker, OLB, 6' #225 - Undersized underclassman plays all over for the Sooners
  • Geneo Grissom, OLB, 6'4" #252 - Big-time athlete with questions about his true position
  • Chuka Ndulue, DT, 6'3" #289 - Looking for a mid-round prospect who could blow up? Ndulue could be that guy.
  • Tyrus Thompson, OT, 6'5" #336 - Experienced LT, but projects to RT or G. Big-time athlete without great feet. Injury issues.
  • Blake Bell, TE, 6'6 #259 - He made his name as a short-yardage running QB but projects as a UDFA blocking TE.
  • Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, 6'2 #235 - Pass-rusher deluxe.
  • Grady Jarrett, DT, 6'1" #295 - Multiple all-ACC selections. My favorite Clemson prospect; could be groomed as the next Mebane.
  • Stephone Anthony, ILB, 6'2" #245 - David Hawthorne-type hitter. (Suspended for 1st half for targeting.)
  • Corey Crawford, DE, 6'5" #270 - A more traditional DE than Beasley. Seattle fans should note his length.

Texas Bowl



  • Malcolm Brown, DT, 6'4" #320 - Could be the top defensive tackle after the combine.
  • Cedric Reed, DE, 6'6" #271 - Quality all-around end; mid-to-late round prospect.
  • Malcolm Brown, RB, 6'0" #228 - Good all-around back, right in SEA's wheelhouse in terms of build. Top high school RB in nation.
  • Trey Flowers, DE, 6'3" #270 - High motor DE with good size and length.
  • Brey Cook, OT, 6'6" #314 - Big and strong with experience at multiple positions for an extreme run-heavy team. What's not to like for Cable?
  • Demetrius Wilson, WR, 6'2 #218 - Big, long WR from a run heavy offense could be a nice project.
