Malik McDowell said the Seahawks had him in for an official visit during the pre-draft process. He said last season (1.5 sacks) was rough but didn't want to use his ankle injury as an excuse. Asked about concerns with his consistency, McDowell said, "I'm motivated." He estimated that he played about 90 percent of his snaps last year at nose tackle.

DT Malik McDowell is a good fit for the Seahawks defensive system. Inside pass rush ability with high-level athleticism. More speed on the interior of the defensive line and another pass rusher in nickel situations.

With the 35th pick, the Seahawks selected Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell. McDowell (6-foot-6, 295 pounds) is considered a talented prospect, but he battled through an ankle injury last year and had just 1.5 sacks. He has upside, and the Seahawks are counting on their coaching staff to help McDowell reach his potential as an NFL player. As a rookie, he'll have a chance to compete for a starting spot, but Seattle will be counting on McDowell to bring some interior pass-rush in its sub packages.
