Seahawks NFL mock draft roundup: Mid-February...


The Seattle Seahawks currently have only four picks in the 2021 NFL draft, which means that general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll will have to make the most of their precious few selections. Seattle’s first selection, barring a trade, will occur in Round 2 at Pick 56. Although most mock drafts are still focusing on the first round alone, a few have expanded to the second round and beyond.

Here are the Seahawks’ selections from four mock drafts released within the past week:

Seahawks select Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama 

Offensive line is undoubtedly a need for the Seahawks, particularly considering Russell Wilson’s dissatisfaction with his protection thus far. Drafting Alabama’s Alex Leatherwood, who is a dominating physical presence at 6-foot-5 and 312 pounds, would do much to ease Wilson’s fears. Leatherwood has experience at both guard and tackle, earning unanimous First-Team All-American honors and the Outland Trophy (given to the nation’s best interior offensive lineman) in 2020. His long arms and physical play style, paired with his massive frame, would go a long way toward providing Wilson with better security. Leatherwood’s best fit may be at guard – he is not the fleetest of foot, and is susceptible to being beaten by quick, bendy edge-rushers.

Seahawks select Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford

Adebo opted out for the 2020 season, so draft analysts must rely on a bit of guesswork – and his two seasons of tape at cornerback – to determine the best fit for him. His background as a converted wide receiver and his competitive, athletic play style remind many of former Seahawk Richard Sherman. A predominantly outside corner, Adebo showed promising ball-hawk tendencies with eight interceptions and 27 passes defended in just two seasons at Stanford. His competitiveness and high upside would provide Seattle with a dangerous presence in the backfield.

Seahawks select Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

I already covered Dillon Radunztwice – but his performance during Reese’s Senior Bowl week merits another mention. Radunz, was named as the Overall Practice Player of the Week after consistently impressing in three days of practice. At 6-foot-6 and 302 pounds, Radunz matched up well against the best of the best off the edge, capping his time in Mobile, Ala., off with a solid performance in the Jan. 30 competition.

Seahawks select Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee

Trey Smith may not make it past the first round due to his sheer size – over 6-foot-four, 312 pounds – and overall talent. During his freshman year, he started all 12 games at left tackle for the Vols, earning Freshman All-American honors, but sat out the entire 2018 season due to two separate instances of blood clots in his lungs. Smith returned to the team in 2019, where he lined up at guard and played well enough to earn a spot on the All-SEC First Team two years in a row. His tremendous power, great hand technique, overall drive, and general football smarts should make him an appealing prospect for any team; however, his general lack of mobility and previous health issues could see him slip into the Seahawks’ range.
