Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, March 28 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Mock Draft 3.0
Following the big wave of NFL free agency, Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN released his third mock draft leading up to April's event in Dallas.
In his newest revision, Kiper Jr. has the Seahawks adding a cornerback to pair alongside 2017 selection Shaquill Griffin: Iowa's Josh Jackson. Here's why he selected Jackson for the Seahawks at No. 18 in his mock:
Seattle is set at one corner with Shaquill Griffin, a steal in the third round of last year's draft. But after releasing Richard Sherman, the other corner spot is far from settled. The 6-foot Jackson fits the Seahawks' mold of bigger corners, and he has great ball skills (eight interceptions in 2017). Seattle has lost a lot of talent this offseason and could go after another offensive lineman or wide receiver.
The Seahawks currently have eight selections in this year's draft.
