Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, January 19 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Daniel Jeremiah's Mock Draft 1.0
As we outlined earlier this week, the Seahawks hold the No. 26 pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and with just four teams still in contention for the Lombardi Trophy, the other 28 clubs have started to turn its attention to the League's annual selection process.
Media, too, have started to kickstart their draft coverage, with NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout for the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, and Philadelphia Eagles, releasing his first mock draft early Thursday morning. With the draft's 26th overall pick, Jeremiah slots Utah offensive tackle Garett Bolles to the Seahawks, noting:
In 2016, the Seahawks used a top pick on an offensive lineman (OT Germain Ifedi), and I'd expect them to do the same thing in this year's draft. Bolles is a very athletic pass protector who shows some nastiness in the running game.
Jeremiah also offered a look at his Top 50 draft prospects earlier this week, when he ranked Bolles No. 28, writing:
Bolles started for only one year at offensive tackle for the Utes. He has good size and length for the position. In pass protection, he is quick out of his stance and bends naturally. He has a sharp, tight punch and a firm anchor. He does get caught oversetting at times, which produces some inside pressure on the quarterback. He has good football awareness considering his limited experience. In the run game, he has knock-off power and shows some nastiness to finish to and through the whistle. He does get overextended at times, but I love his tenacity. Overall, Bolles has some things to clean up but he has starting left tackle ability.
