Clayton Offers 10 Players The Seahawks Should Watch
With the NFL Combine kicking off this week in Indianapolis, John Clayton of 710 ESPN Seattle put together a list of 10 players he believes the Seahawks should keep their eyes on.
Several draft analysts have described the 2017 class as one loaded with defensive talent, and Clayton's list adds to that notion. Among the 10 players he recommends, six of them play on defense (four cornerbacks, two safeties), while the remaining four are split into two running backs and two offensive linemen. Here's a glimpse at Clayton's first five:
*Sidney Jones, CB, Washington. There is a great chance Jones will be drafted before the Seahawks select in the first round at No. 26, but they should be interested nonetheless. The University of Washington seems to like and develop the type of long, angular cornerbacks who can be good in man-to-man situations. Jones, listed at 6 feet 1, fits the Seahawks' style. *
*Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida.He's 6-1, 213 pounds and has the speed and ability to stay with receivers in man coverage. He matches up well against big receivers. *
*Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama.He also checks the size box at 6-1, 196. It doesn't hurt that he comes from Alabama, where Nick Saban develops intelligent cornerbacks. *
Teez Tabor, CB, Florida. He has the look of a potentially great press, man-to-man cornerback. He loves to jump routes and has great speed.
Budda Baker, FS, Washington.He's not tall but he's just a great athlete and a great player. He's a play-maker.
