  • Intriguing. Some very Seahawk-y traits with the length and quickness. Also, this team isn't afraid of tweeners if they have a high pass rush ceiling and the ability to contribute at more than one position (Bruce Irvin, Michael Bennett, Frank Clark).

    I'd love Rob Staton's thoughts on the guy.

  • he is an intriguing prospect, high ceiling but I remember reading he had some character issues and a questionable motor. Clark may have had some risks come in with him but there wasn't much concern about his work ethic. The motor question always makes me nervous

  • And his floor is big time bust. Too many players with a way higher floor and just as high of ceiling. Pass

  • He's 20 and already a significant force when playing up to his ability. If there is any coach that can get inside his head and make him play with fire and consistently during the plays he's allowed to play it's Pete.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

  • I love when guys say that lets draft the safest guy we tried that With Curry and he was a bust. Jordan hill 3rd round pick couldnt stay on the field. I like PCJS doing their due diligence McDowell is a freak he is only 20 he just needs someone to harness his immense talent. I hope they take him.

  • Freak? How so? His explosion numbers are average and his tape sucks. Where are we going to play him to tap this immense talent? Myles Garrett is a freak, Malik McDowell not so much. Not before the 3rd round for me.

  • seeing that our pick is so late I basically consider 2.26 to b a 3rd roundpick. I would take him there if he was available; it would be pinnacle seahawks move consider ceiling ignore floor and bet on our unique culture and coaching to get the best out of this unique guy.

  • Million dollar body, nickel's worth of "want to". Yes, his potential ceiling is high but his low is
    the basement. I would go for Chris Wormley and let McDowell be great somewhere else.

  • Trade down into the early second round and take him. The draft is a crap shoot his skillset is an all pro skillset. A lot of you guys were against Frank Clark but people can change plus he is only 20 years old. McDowell and Witherspoon would be ideal. Whomever they take i support.

  • I think this is a guy if Dan Quinn was still coaching with the hawks we would consider him. Dan Quinn was noted for teaching and developing DL hand fighting techniques to become more effective rushers.

    I believe several Seahawks have credited him with this.

    A draft prospect who is raw and limited like McDowell may benefit greatly from a coach like Quinn. He is still very Seahawky in terms of being athletic. I think he lands in Atlanta to improve that defense even more.

  • I think Clint Hurtt the new dline coach will coach him up and he will want to show how good he can be.

  • Heard negative talk about his motivation. Hawks have met with him. Wouldn't be surprised about a 1st round DL/Edge like him or Tim Williams. But my money would be on Obi.
