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.
