I wanted to start a separate post for this because so many people have taken an interest in Will Sutton recently (no surprise given Seattle’s need for more interior pass rush). I did a piece on Alex Okafor earlier today which you can check out by clicking here.
Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton has decided to stay at ASU for his senior season.

There aren’t a ton of options for Seattle if they want to use the draft to find a three technique. The two best options (Sheldon Richardson, Star Lotulelei) will both be long gone as early first round picks. Sylvester Williams may also be a top-25 pick. I’m going to take a closer look at Kawann Short and Bennie Logan over the next fortnight. Logan opted to turn pro this week.
Sutton was never going to be a first round pick, but he would’ve been in contention as a mid-round target. It looks increasingly like the best way for the Seahawks to solve this problem will be in free agency.
