Seahawks Select FSU Defensive Tackle Demarcus Christmas With No. 209 Overall Pick In 2019 NFL Draft

After opening their 2019 draft by taking defensive end L.J. Collier, the Seahawks added another D-lineman toward the end of Day 3, choosing Florida State defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas.

Christmas, who is 6-foot-3, 302 pounds, was a three-year starter for the Seminoles, and earned third-team All-ACC honors as a senior, described himself as a run-stopping defensive tackle first and foremost.

“I’m a run-stuffer,” he said on a conference call. “I really work on technique, I can pass-rush.”

As for that distinct last name, Christmas said, “I’ve been getting jokes my whole life. I just laugh at it.”

With the No. 209 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Demarcus Christmas, a defensive tackle out of Florida State.
