291: Seahawks draft prospects on the offensive and defensive line
Times are tough for some of the 2020 NFL Draft prospects. Particularly those prospects who would have been able to shine in front of NFL scouts at the various team Pro Days across the country. While there are quite a few players to feel sympathy for, there is a subset of players for which Rob Staton has no sympathy. Rob talks about a few players who had an opportunity to compete at the NFL Combine and chose not to ultimately missed out on what ended up being their last chance to display their athleticism.
One Seahawks free agent has been significantly impacted by his inability to meet with teams and get looked over by medical staff is Jadeveon Clowney. Considering the Seahawks biggest need has been to add to the defensive line, they've done little to add high impact talent to a group that finished at the bottom of the NFL in so many categories. Is Clowney, the coronavirus, or the Seahawks to blame for this?
Getting back into Seahawks prospects, we take a look at players who can rush the passer as we learn who underwhelmed Rob is when considering several options Seattle has throughout the draft. While the options at pass rush may be limited at the end of the first round, finding a player on the offensive line may be more promising. We discuss Rob's latest mock draft and his thoughts on some of the biggest names.
Closing out the show, we explore a position that is relatively low when you consider positions of need for Seattle. But the Seahawks always seem to find a way to surprise us when it comes to the draft. When it comes down to the kind of players Rob wants, there's a certain type of mentality he feels is missing and would like to see Seattle address through the draft.
