For those who follow my blog, you will know that I split the draft process into 2 this year, once for the real seahawks, but mainly for what I would do.
Following the draft I then wrote an article on what my initial impressions out of the gate were for how I saw everyone on the team (one for the team I would have had following the draft and one for the real Seahawks roster). This article will focus on the my edition of the Seahawks team (previous, linked article here) and how I would put together their final 53, plus the 10 man practice squad (if it could only be put together from people on the current 90).
[NOTE: due to time constraints I cannot give a full reasoning behind each decision and will focus on those I think are the closest. I will try to do the full reasoning post cut]
So without further ado, here is what I would do:
Green – Final 53
Orange – close call
Grey – Practice Squad Candidate
Red – Cut
Lock, Jackson, Smith, Lynch
Carson, Penny, McKissic, Barnes, Ingold (FB), Bellore (FB), Sutton, Scarbrough, Prosise
Dissly, Sternberger, Dickson, Vannett, Swoops, Johnson
youth over experience. I might be pushing it though taking WR Wright over Dickson and maybe should take him instead.
Lockett, Brown, Moore, Renfrow, Ferguson, Wright, Reynolds, Turner, Scott
Brown, Fant, Jones, Ifedi, Nkansah
Fluker, Risner, Iupati, Roos, Simmons, Martin
Haynes (PUP), Knox (IR)
Clark, Green, Burns, Daniels, Jones, Jefferson, Marsh, Jackson
Very sad that there in no space for Marsh, would love to keep him.
Ford, Hill, Saunders, Mone, Woods, Meder
Wagner, Kendricks, Calitro
Wright, BBK, Ellerbee, Currie
Griffin, Martin, Davis II
Griffin, Flowers, Moreland, King, Derrek Thomas, Simeon Thomas, Thorpe, Taylor, Reed, Davis, Boykins
Two long arm corners for the PS.
McDougald, Redwine, Gardner-Johnson, Hill, Luani, Thompson, Harvey, Evans
As mentioned above, full breakdowns of the actual cutdown and answers to how I got to this roster will follow.
