Really terrific footage you found, for each draft choice, that shows exactly WHY the Seahawks drafted each of them. Watching Colby Parkinson abuse DBs on back shoulder throws--priceless! Watching Lewis block, both destroying multiple defenders on a play in the run game, and stuffing top college pass rushers in (Senior Bowl?) drills--and they said he couldn't pass block? DJ Dallas, what a nice overall fit in the RB room, runs between the tackles, catches, thinks like a QB (even takes direct snaps), pass blocks, knows where to be to make screens work, so smart at using his blockers, I think this kid will be a pleasant surprise. The two edge rushers, Darrell Taylor, and the guy from Syracuse with the up-and-under move, the Syracuse guy, for some reason Chris Clemons came to mind. The 6th round slot receiver, can Doug Baldwin lightning strike twice in a decade? I liked his *toughness*, that came out in his video. And Stephen Sullivan, that is my all-time favorite draft call, and if he makes the team... can you imagine a Red Zone WR lineup with DK Metcalf, Colby Parkinson, and Stephen Sullivan, for the opponents to have to defend all of them on the same play? Russell has 3 choices for a jump ball likely win.
Thanks man, your videos got me excited to see each of the rooks in Seahawks gear. How are you coming with the 2020 Seahawks UDFA videos? Release date? Kidding, of course ;-)
First off, Thank you for taking the time to go into detail and elaborate on all of this.
I think it's really cool you came up with the Doug Baldwin comparison for Swain (Florida kid), because after watching a good amount of his footage, he really reminds me of the younger 2012 Doug Baldwin.
The guard Lewis (out of LSU) I see the most "NFL ready" out of the group, which is going to be pretty important as the RG spot is pretty vacant. I also wanted to add, sometimes offensive linemen have the tendency to take on their own assignment and that is it. Not this guy, if you watch his film he is consistently seen going through his progressions, and if nothings there he runs over and helps out a fellow linemen. A+ in my book.
Parkinson looks like he has the potential to have success against the defenses in our division. His catching frame is insane, and he always seems to use his body like a basketball player to box out the defender. He is going to need some good coaching, and coincidentally he does. He has a loaded tight-end room full of it.
Brookes' speed is going to give San Francisco FITS. They (49ers) love to have Jimmy G. Throwing those little sweep passes, and dump-offs. He will eat this up with a little experience, and confidence under his belt.
As for Taylor (DE out of Tennessee), at least right now, we really NEED him to be a home-run of a pick. I say right now because "if" Clowney decides to come back it will greatly benefit Taylor's production in that he can sit back and be coached and observe, with a little in-game rotation throughout the year. If the table does swing the other way, and Clowney does not sign... He will still be fine, but I wont be expecting large numbers this year from him.
BTW.. (to everyone) I am open ears for project ideas, I do not see this as intrusive or annoying. So please feel free to PM me or whatever. I also want to do our Free Agent Pickups (Dunbar, Irvin, Olsen, and Mayowa).
