The Seattle Seahawks have 11 draft picks in the 2015 NFL draft, which takes place April 30th through May 2nd in Chicago.
This week while I’m on vacation, I’m going to run a list of players who might be available to the Seahawks at each particular pick (based on most draft boards), taking into consideration the position of need for the team.
The Seahawks are more tight-lipped about their draft board than any team in the league, as they should be. Any information about players they have an interest in could be used against them, with a team taking that player ahead of them.
So it’s almost impossible to predict the players that interest the Seahawks. But this is a look at players who are expected to go in the round where the Seahawks are selecting.
The Seahawks traded their first-round pick to New Orleans as part of the deal to acquire tight end Jimmy Graham. Seattle has one pick in the second round, one in the third, three in the fourth, two in the fifth, three in the sixth and one in the seventh round.
Today is a look at three possibilities for the second of three fourth-round picks, No. 130 overall:
Eric Rowe, CB (6-1, 205) Utah -- Spent his first three years with the Utes at free safety before moving to cornerback last season. Rowe can man-up with the best of them at receiver. He’s a physical and tall corner the Seahawks love, but also could play safety if they needed him there.
Cedric Reed, DE (6-6, 270) Texas -- Played most of last season with a knee injury, so his numbers were down from 2013. But in 32 starts for the Longhorns, Reed had 37 tackles for losses, including 18 sacks.
Clayton Geathers, S (6-1, 210) Central Florida -- An aggressive defender who is known for his ability to read defenses and break on the ball at the right moment. He loves to hit people, so Geathers would fit right in with Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
