Seahawks Take CB In Beat Writer Mock

The 2017 NFL Draft is just a week away. 

Gathering NFL beat writers across the country, The Los Angeles Times conducted a mock draft of their own with the people who cover teams on a daily basis. The writers played the role of general managers and made picks they felt were best for the team. 

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times made the No. 26 overall pick on behalf of the Seahawks and selected University of Washington cornerback Kevin King, who he believes has the size to fit well in Pete Carroll's system: 

*At 6-foot-3 King is the kind of big corner Pete Carroll covets. He would help a secondary that could be in transition. *
