ESPN Predicts Impact Rookies For 2017

With the 2017 NFL Draft recently concluding, ESPN NFL Nation reporters gave their insight on which rookie they believe will make the biggest impact this upcoming season on the team they cover.

For the Seahawks, reporter Sheil Kapadia selected second-round pick Ethan Pocic:

He certainly isn't the most prominent name on this list, but the Seahawks drafted Pocic in the second round with the expectation that he'll compete for a starting job at right guard or right tackle. The Seahawks' struggles up front have been well-documented, and the outcome of the 2017 season rests largely on the team's ability to improve along the offensive line. Pocic's providing an immediate upgrade will be critical.

Pocic was one of 11 draft selections the Seahawks made on draft weekend. The 2017 class also includes Malik McDowell, Shaquill Griffin, Delano Hill, Nazair Jones, Amara Darboh, Tedric Thompson, Mike Tyson, Justin Senior, David Moore and Chris Carson.
