Wednesday Round-Up: Seahawks Take A Safety In Mel Kiper Jr.'s Mock Draft 2.0

Mel Kiper Jr. has the Seahawks taking Florida State safety Derwin James in his latest mock draft.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's out there for today — Wednesday, February 21 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Mock Draft 2.0

Following the evaluation process of the Senior Bowl, ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released his second mock draft of the offseason. 

With the No. 18 pick in the first round, Kiper has the Seahawks taking safety Derwin James from Florida State University. Here's his reasoning for the selection:

*There are questions all over the Seattle defense -- will Kam Chancellor, Cliff Avril, Sheldon Richardson and Richard Sherman be back? -- and the future of the aging Legion of Boom is up in the air. James could be a new member. He looked like a top-five pick as a freshman at Florida State in 2015, missed the entire 2016 season with a knee injury, then didn't return as the same player in 2017. But he's still extremely talented. Medical reports and testing at the combine will be important for James. Scouts are keeping an eye on how he runs and what he shows in the agility drills. *
