Post-Combine Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks 2016
1st Round Nick Martin, C, Notre Dame
Combine Measureables: 6'4" 299lbs.
Arm Length: 32.5 inches
Hand Span: 9 3/4"
40 yard dash: 5.22 (Average)
Bench Press: 28 Reps (Above Average)
Broad Jump: 97 inches (Average)
3-cone drill: 7.57 seconds (Average)
20-yard shuttle: 4.72 seconds (Average)
While his combine measureables did not blow anyone away, Martin just makes sense. He's smart and gritty and can play both Guard and Center, so he's a versatile athlete as well. Bold Prediction: Seahawks trade down 1st round pick to move down to near top of the 2nd round and for another mid-late round pick.
2nd Round Chris Jones, Defensive Tackle, Mississippi State
Arm Length: 34.5 inches
Hand Span: 10 3/4"
40 yard dash: 5.03 (Average)
Bench Press: 26 Reps (Below Average)
Broad Jump: 106 inches (Average)
3-cone drill: 7.44 seconds (Above Average)
20-yard shuttle: 4.62 seconds (Average)
We've all seen Mr. Jones' combine mishap, however, I can't see Chris Jones going past the 2nd round. He's strong with excellent size and arm length and has shown the ability to be productive from the 1,3 and even 5 technique.
Bold Prediction: With newly acquired late round picks from the 1st round drop, the Hawks trades away a few of their late round picks to move up in the second round. Also, my first and second picks may have a chance being flipped with Jones going first and Martin following suit.
Value: Rotational Starter
Travis Feeney, Outside Linebacker, Washington
Arm Length: 33 3/8 inches
Hand Span: 9 1/2
40 yard dash: 4.5 (Top Performer)
Bench Press: DNP Vertical: 40 inches (Top Performer)
Broad Jump: 130 inches (Top Performer)
3-cone drill: 7.2 seconds (Average)
20-yard shuttle: 4.42 seconds (Average)
Bold Prediction: This selection may be viewed as bold in itself. However, Feeney is an ATHLETE. He scored top measurables in four tests that included a 40 inch vertical. Feeney may be graded in the late rounds by other scouts but PC has never been afraid to go after talent, especially POTENTIAL talent in earlier rounds. Not only is Feeney explosive off the edge, he is a special teams ace that has tremendous value with the Hawks. The downside on Feeney is he's torn labrums in both shoulders, having a total of 4 surgeries through the course of his collegiate career at UW.
Value: Special Teams, Situational Pass Rusher
Kenyan Drake, Running Back, Alabama
Arm Length: 31 3/4 inches
Hand Span: 9 3/4
40 yard dash: 4.45 (Top Performer)
Bench Press: 10 (Below Average) Vertical: 34.5 inches (Average)
Broad Jump: 123 inches (Top Performer)
3-cone drill: 7.04 seconds (Average)
20-yard shuttle: 4.21 seconds (Top Performer)
I'm not sure if he'll still be available by the time we get our 4th round pick, but if he is, Kenyan Drake would be my guy. With the departure of Fred Jackson, Kenyan Drake can step right in and fill the role of the Hawks' 3rd down/change of pace back. His physical stature already compares to Fred Jackson. He's no thumper between the tackles but he's got good vision, is an excellent as a receiver out of the backfield with great burst once he hits the edges. Also, he's got excellent value as a special teamer, something the Hawks can never have enough of.
Value: Special Teams, 3rd Down Back
