Tuesday Round-Up: ESPN Lists Eight Possible First-Round Picks For The Seahawks

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, April 25 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Potential First-Round Picks

With the first round of the 2017 draft just two days away, NFL reporters and analysts are submitting their final thoughts on possible picks for each of the League's 32 teams.

Over at ESPN.com, Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia eyes eight athletes Seattle could potentially select with the draft's No. 26 overall pick. His list includes Washington cornerback Kevin King, Western Kentucky offensive lineman Forrest Lamp, UConn defensive back Obi Melifonwu, Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson, Michigan defensive lineman Taco Charlton, Temple linebacker/defensive end Haason Reddick, Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey, and Washington receiver John Ross.

Here's what Kapadia had to say about how a few of the potential first-rounders could help the Seahawks:

Forrest Lamp, OL, Western Kentucky: The Seahawks made a strong push to sign T.J. Lang in free agency, and last year's first-round pick Germain Ifedi is likely sliding over to right tackle. That means the Seahawks could consider a guard option early. Lamp is a plus athlete and should have some positional versatility. This year's offensive line class is not strong, but if Lamp falls in the first, he will be an option.

*Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama: *At 6 foot, with 32 1/4-inch arms, Humphrey fits the profile, and he may be the most physical corner in this year's class. Athletically, he tested in the 85.2 percentile. The knock on Humphrey is his ball skills. Carroll was on hand for Alabama's pro day and may be comfortable projecting that Humphrey can improve in that area in the NFL -- especially considering that Humphrey won't turn 21 until July.

Taco Charlton, DL, Michigan: He could fill the Michael Bennett/Frank Clark role. Charlton (6-foot-6, 277 pounds) had 10 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss last season. The Seahawks were in their sub package for about 68 percent of their defensive snaps last season. A pass rush of Clark, Bennett, Charlton and Cliff Avril could give opposing offensive lines fits.
