Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Monday, February 27 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
ESPN Lists Players The Seahawks Should Focus On At The NFL Combine
The NFL Combine kicks off this week at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and Seahawks ESPN NFL Nation reporter Sheil Kapadia looked at five prospects he believes the team should eye during testing.
The five prospects are Wisconsin offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk, Washington defensive back Budda Baker, West Virginia cornerback Rasul Douglas, Missouri defensive end Charles Harris and Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson.
For Baker, a Bellevue native who was a 2016 NCAA Consensus All-American, Kapadia mentions how Pete Carroll's relationship with Huskies head coach Chris Petersen could help him, plus Baker's versatility in a defensive backfield:
Carroll and Huskies coach Chris Petersen have a good relationship, and it's a near certainty they'll be discussing Baker in the weeks ahead. The Seahawks often say they scout with an eye on what prospects can do, not what they can't do. Baker (5-10, 180 pounds) doesn't have the size many teams might covet, but the Seahawks could be an exception. Given his college resume and competitiveness, Baker could be a player fro which the Seahawks grow infatuated. As for fit, he might be able to work his way onto the field as a slot corner early in his NFL career and back up safety Earl Thomas. The question is: How early would the Seahawks (or other teams, for that matter) be willing to take Baker?
