Seattle Seahawks Combine Prospects

The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the most consistent teams in recent NFL history. However, the Seahawks had a problem protecting their quarterback and it cost them in the postseason. The defensive backfield also had their struggles once Earl Thomas went down. Seattle will need to fill some of these holes in their depth chart if they want to continue their dominance. Luckily for them the 2017 NFL Combine is right around the corner.

Quincy Wilson – Cornerback – Florida

The Seahawks need help in the defensive back category and this 6’1″ 213 pound cornerback fits the bill. Quincy Wilson is a bit rough around the edges, sometimes relying on his strength and hands rather than make up speed and footwork. However, Wilson is physical and ready to run with the best receivers. In addition, his size gives him opportunity to move around the defensive backfield or fill the box.

Cam Robinson – Offensive Tackle – Alabama

Russell Wilson has been under duress when dropping back for most of his tenure in Seattle. While Ryan Ramczyk was a lock as the number one tackle, offseason surgeries raise questions of availability. Cam Robinson improved as the season wore on. When facing off with top prospect Myles Garrett he manage to keep him without a sack. He started every game at left tackle while producing two First-Team All SEC seasons in his tenure.

Christian McCaffrey – Running Back – Stanford

The Seahawks backfield featured anything but continuity. Christine Michael lead the team in rushing and finished the NFL season in Green Bay. Considering injuries to CJ Prosise and Thomas Rawls, the Seahawks need help in the backfield. Christian McCaffrey see the field well and can cut on a dime. With production through the air out of the backfield, he is a dynamic running back. McCaffrey averaged 6.3 yards per carry while adding over 1900 yards of offense and 16 touchdowns. Look for McCaffrey to impress this weekend at the NFL Combine.

Alvin Kamara – Running Back – Tennessee

Kamara split carries with Jalen Hurd last season, however he produced nearly 600 yards and 9 touchdowns at a 5.8 yards per carry average. Kamara has been compared to Jamal Charles by many. The Seattle Seahawks lack a dynamic running back that can catch the ball out of the backfield. Kamara’s mix of acceleration, speed, cutting and hands could be just what the Seahawks need lined up behind Wilson.

Jamal Adams – Safety – LSU

When Seattle lost Earl Thomas to a broken leg their secondary took a devastating blow. The team struggled to find another on field leader and playmaker alike. Adams is a tone setter, unafraid to challenge an opponent on the field. Safety Jamal Adams put together a great season for LSU, collecting 77 tackles and 4 pass break ups. He even garnered praise from the Associated Press and was named to their First-Team All-American team.
