On Day 1 of the NFL Draft the Seattle Seahawks were content to trade back from pick 21 to pick 30, and then to trade back again from pick 30 to pick 37. In making these trades the Hawks added a significant number of draft picks, moving from just five selections during this year’s draft to nine.
The Hawks used one of those nine picks on TCE defensive end LJ Collier to address the gaping hole at EDGE following the trade of Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team is slated to make two selections on Friday. The first of the Day 2 selections Pete Carroll and John Schneider hold is the fifth pick in the second round, number 37 overall. This means that if the teams stays there and makes a selection at 37, only four more players will have come off the board, and the team should have plenty of potential impact players to choose from when they make their selection.
Kenneth detailed a list of best available players by ESPN, here’s a look at the 12 best available players according to the draft grades at the NFL.com draft tracker:
- Jawaan Taylor, T, Florida
- D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
- Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
- Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
- A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
- Cody Ford, G, Oklahoma
- Dalton Risner, T, Kansas State
- Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M
- Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
- Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
- Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida
- Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
Of those 12 available players, the Seahawks could address needs at either receiver or the secondary. While they could use a Day 2 pick on the offensive line, that seems unlikely based on the fact that they have four of five starters returning on the offensive line, with several players in competition for the fifth spot.
Thus, as we wait for the Hawks to make their selections on Day 2, which of those best available players would you like to see Seattle pick? Or is your preferred player someone who is not on that list? List it in the comments!
Who should the Seahawks select with the fifth pick in the second round (pick 37 overall)?
