Friday notes: New podcast, reviewing the mocks & Chris Long | Seahawks Draft Blog
Chad Reuter has published a new four-round mock draft. His picks for Seattle are: Sheldon Rankins (R1), Alex Collins (R2), Leonte Carroo (R3), Will Redmond (R3) and Joe Dahl (R4). Most fans will react very positively to this. Rankins is the best interior rusher in the class with tremendous upside and quickness.

Carroo adds depth at receiver (he has major character flags that need to be investigated) and Dahl can compete for any of the interior line spots (he’s best suited to right guard). Redmond would need to have 32-inch arms to pass the length test but he had first round potential before a serious injury in 2015. He could fall in a similar way to Walter Thurmond.
