Malik Willis (Liberty)
He has incredible arm strength, his running ability is a major plus and he has the potential to make magic happen on the move. However — he struggles to throw over the middle and flat-out rejects way too many easy completions, he too often refuses to take what’s on offer and he has a painful number of self-inflicted sacks.
Kenny Pickett (Pittsburgh)
There are things to like — he’s a better athlete than people recognise and he really elevated Pittsburgh. Nothing gets you that excited though (apart from the fake-slide, that was exciting).
Matt Corrall (Ole Miss)
He basically needs a ground-zero introduction to a pro-style offense and how teams think he can handle that will determine his stock because there are certainly things to like. He has a terrific whip-like motion that generates great torque and velocity but there are misses on tape that are head-scratching too.
Desmond Ridder (Cincinnati)
His erratic accuracy is a major problem (watch the Navy game, the first half of the Notre Dame game and see how he struggled against Alabama). The Seahawks will probably like his hand size, winning habit, personality and plus athleticism but he misses way too many easy layups and it feels like you could easily waste three years giving him a chance to take a leap forward and it never happening, leaving you in quarterback purgatory.
Sam Howell (North Carolina)
I just don’t get it and every time I watch his tape I think ‘meh’. A poor man’s Baker.
Carson Strong (Nevada)
He has genuine, legit arm talent. Yet he can barely move, the knee is a huge concern and he disappointed at the Senior Bowl.
Jack Coan (Notre Dame)
His arm is decent, he can go through reads, he can make plays downfield and he has something about him. I like Coan.
Kaleb Eleby (Western Michigan)
Completely lacks any kind of athletic upside but he loves to take shots downfield. They clearly liked Dee Eskridge a year ago so the Seahawks might have a soft spot for the man who threw him the ball.
Breece Hall (Iowa State)
His testing profile is incredible and he does a good job being shifty to capitalise on opportunities to burst through open lanes to gain yardage. I wasn’t that excited watching him though.
Kenneth Walker (Michigan State)
The testing surprised me because he doesn’t actually look like a blazing runner. He’s patient though, has home-run hitting ability and he carried Michigan State in 2021.
Dameon Pierce (Florida)
He’s an animal who runs through contact like it’s his oxygen. He is a Seahawks running back.
Zamir White (Georgia)
I love the way he accelerates through gaps and always falls forward on contact. An underrated, gritty tone-setter for Georgia who did as much as the defense to connect everything up.
Tyrion Davis-Price (LSU)
Big, athletic and explosive. He has great feet to shimmy away from tackles and the power to burst through opponents.
Rachaad White (Arizona State)
Productive with the occasional flash of brilliance. Doesn’t have an orthodox body type for the position.
Isaiah Spiller (Texas A&M)
I don’t see anything to get excited about. What am I missing?
James Cook (Georgia)
If his name was James Smith I’m not sure we’d be talking about him as much. He is what he is — a small running back best used as a creative pass catcher.
Isaih Pacheco (Rutgers)
He has a harrowing backstory and plays every game with an emotional passion to succeed and make people proud. He’s shifty and quick and if he plays on a better team, he might just be really good.
Max Borghi (Washington State)
He’s ended up being quite underrated. On tape he does everything well and provides a mix of elusiveness to dodge tackles, the ability to be a X-factor in the passing game and he’s a home-run threat.
Kevin Harris (South Carolina)
Harris isn’t going to offer you anything in the passing game but as a brutal, hammering, physical running back he has BAMF potential. He loves to run through contact and finish.
Zonovan Knight (NC State)
There’s a reason why his nickname is ‘Bam’ but he’s not just a power merchant who runs through tackles. His footwork is fantastic — as he showed in the pad drills at the combine.
Brian Robinson (Alabama)
Slightly high-cut and offers very little in pass-pro. However, he bulldozed his way to providing a needed running element to Alabama’s Playoff run.
Jameson Williams (Alabama)
Breakaway speed is reminiscent of Desean Jackson. Tearing his ACL at the end of the season might prevent him from being WR1.
Garrett Wilson (Ohio State)
Great testing and very productive. He gets his body into weird, contorted positions though when catching the ball and it bothers me.
Chris Olave (Ohio State)
Silky smooth with better-than-expected speed. In the right offense he could be Mr. Reliable.
Drake London (USC)
There are plenty of ‘wow’ moments on tape. However, with a receiver this size I want to know the testing numbers and he’s refused to run a forty.
Treylon Burks (Arkansas)
Loved his tape, hated his combine and pro-day testing. Is he someone who outperforms his athletic profile or just a good college receiver who doesn’t have the upside to excel in the NFL?
Kevin Austin Jr (Notre Dame)
Underrated and jumped off the screen as a dynamic downfield playmaker. He’s extremely exciting to watch and he could be one of the best receivers from this deep class.
Christian Watson (North Dakota State)
Very quick, very tough, capable of receiving the ball around the LOS to grab YAC but can also get downfield. Praised for his leadership qualities.
Alec Pierce (Cincinatti)
All-world testing profile (size/speed) but everything is a contested catch. Is that the QB’s fault or can’t he separate?
Jahan Dotson (Penn State)
He’s pretty good at most things but not really great at anything. A decent prospect.
George Pickens (Georgia)
Not sure where all this sudden hype has come from (Greg Cosell bizarrely called him the best receiver in the draft, or something like that). He’s alright.
Wan’Dale Robinson (Kentucky)
Love his consistency, the way he led Kentucky’s offense with Will Levis and his willingness to hang in there to make difficult plays. His frame reminds me of Golden Tate.
Calvin Austin (Memphis)
A dynamic, diminutive receiver who was incredibly exciting to watch. He’d be a great fit for the Chiefs.
Jalen Tolbert (South Alabama)
He made probably the best catch in college football in 2021. Smooth, silky runner who should be a consistent ‘right place at the right time’ type.
John Metchie (Alabama)
The more I watched on tape the more I thought, ‘you’re not actually that fast’. Then he had the injury.
Skyy Moore (Western Michigan)
He didn’t excite me in the way Dee Eskridge did at all. He’s a warrior and will make extremely difficult catches in tough situations but he lacks a ‘wow’ factor for me.
Velus Jones Jr (Tennessee)
Love his special teams want and desire. He runs a 4.31 so he has some athletic talent but just watch what he does as a returner and as a blocker because it’s about as good as it gets.
Khalil Shakir (Boise State)
Extremely competitive prospect who offers so much variety to an offense. Creative minds will love him — as will his team mates.
David Bell (Purdue)
After watching his tape I thought second round. How can you have any faith in him though after running a 4.74 forty at 209lbs?
Trey McBride (Colorado State)
Loves a block, loves a scrap and makes plays in the passing game. He’ll do for me.
Greg Dulcich (TE, UCLA)
A terrific athlete who looks the part. Would be a great fit for a creative offense that loves to feature a move-TE.
Jelani Woods (Virginia)
You put on the tape and think, ‘oh, he’s interesting’. Then you see the testing numbers and think, ‘very, very interesting’.
Cade Otton (Washington)
A typical Washington tight end who does everything well. Can he stay healthy though?
Jeremy Ruckert (Ohio State)
Someone could get a steal if he falls due to the injury. He has a lot of really good traits and shines in the key areas.
Charlie Kolar (Iowa State)
A really, really interesting prospect. His testing profile matches up with some of the best TE’s in the league and he could soon join them.
Jake Ferguson (Wisconsin)
I like him — he can do a bit of everything. And his agility testing is in Seattle’s ballpark.
Daniel Bellinger (San Diego State)
If you can give him a jolt and make him more consistent as a blocker and pass catcher the sky’s the limit for Bellinger. He tested brilliantly in everything you look for in a tight end so the upside is clear.
Cole Turner (Nevada)
Another player who tested well in the short shuttle and three cone and that matters at tight end. Watching Carson Strong tape — Turner won so many jump-balls for him by boxing out and gaining position.
Abraham Lucas (Washington State)
Brilliant run blocker with perfect size and testing. The top performer during on-field drills at the combine — it’s a disgrace how little he’s been talked about pre-draft.
Trevor Penning (Northern Iowa)
His testing profile is akin to the top tackles in the league. The concerns are, though, whether his technique (plays too high, susceptible to inside counter, can be bull-rushed) will ever be good enough and is he a genuine tough-guy or is he trying too hard to come across as one?
Charles Cross (Mississippi State)
One of the most overrated players in the draft for me. His narrow base is crying out to be relentlessly bull-rushed at the next level, he didn’t run-block in the air-raid and his testing profile is ‘meh’.
Tyler Smith (Tulsa)
He’s got ‘tackle who shifts inside to guard’ written all over him. He plays with an aggressive mindset but he’s nothing special as an edge protector.
Rasheed Walker (Penn State)
He plays like he needs a rocket up his arse. Yet there are flashes on tape where you think, ‘this guy has something’.
Daniel Faalele (T, Minnesota)
Too big. Why does anyone have him going on day two?
Nicholas Petit-Frere (Ohio State)
I thought he’d test better than he did. On tape he looked athletic with a need to find an edge but now you have to question his upside.
Thayer Munford (Ohio State)
Another Ohio State lineman whose tape is better than his testing (and his testing was absolutely rubbish). Still, as a day three option to have a look to see if he can make it at right tackle, I think he’s worth a shot.
Obinna Eze (Memphis)
I really like him. He has great size and length plus he knows how to use his frame to play inside/out and protect the edge.
Matt Waletzko (North Dakota State)
He’s really explosive with a fantastic tackle frame. At the Senior Bowl he stood out and made you take notice in the 1v1 reps.
Max Mitchell (Louisiana)
I really liked his tape against Texas but he was really poor at the Senior Bowl and then his testing was hugely underwhelming. Undersized, too.
Evan Neal (Alabama)
The man who drafted Brandon Scherff told me Neal reminds him of Scherff. He’s best suited to playing inside and being a top-tier guard.
Ikem Ekwonu (NC State)
I know he’ll get tried at tackle in all likelihood. For me Ekownu’s best bet is to kick inside to guard ala Zack Martin.
Zion Johnson (G, Boston College)
He has everything — length, explosive testing, agility, intelligence, an aggressive nature. Don’t be surprised if he goes as early as Alijah Vera-Tucker did.
Bernhard Raimann (G, Central Michigan)
Short arms and age (25) work against him but Raimann’s testing profile is remarkable. He could be a truly excellent guard but he lacks the technical refinement to play tackle early in his career, which is a problem when you’re already in your mid-20’s.
Kenyon Green (Texas A&M)
Another player where I just don’t get it. His testing profile is really, really bad.
Logan Bruss (Wisconsin)
An explosive linemen with experience at guard or tackle (best suited to guard at the next level). He has massive hands that are like clamps and he has a shot to be sneakily really good in the NFL.
Luke Goedeke (Central Michigan)
He lacks Raimann’s upside but he’s unsurprisingly more refined. Short arms are again a concern and likely mean a kick inside to guard.
Sean Rhyan (UCLA)
And another linemen with short arms. He played tackle at UCLA but his body type and playing style scream guard.
Cam Jurgens (Nebraska)
The perfect package of angry grit, explosive traits, length and agility. What a player.
Tyler Linderbaum (Iowa)
The size concerns mean he won’t fit every team. However, the Seahawks have already stated they are looking for someone with Linderbaum’s profile so they should try and leave the draft with him because in the right scheme he’s going to be awesome.
Cole Strange (Chattanooga)
Good senior bowl, great size and length, amazing explosive traits. Strange could be really, really good.
Zach Tom (Wake Forest)
He’s so good on tape you want to almost consider keeping him at left tackle. Yet his size says center — and a really good one given his combination of length and explosive testing ability.
Dylan Parham (Memphis)
Good size and length but lacks ideal explosive traits or agility results. He does well to play with leverage but he might have a limited ceiling.
Kayvon Thibodeaux (Oregon)
There’s no getting away from the fact when Thibodeaux starts talking you kind of want him to, well, stop. But he ran a 1.5 10-yard split and he does what every team wants — win off the edge with absolute dynamism.
Aidan Hutchinson (Michigan)
He has great potential to be something a bit special. The lack of length is worrisome but the worst case scenario for Hutchinson is still a really good football player.
Travon Walker (Georgia)
There aren’t many people with his level of athleticism at his size. That’s why he’s being talked about as a potential #1 pick — his upside is through the roof.
Jermaine Johnson (Florida State)
Not only does he have the 1.5 10-yard split in his locker, he’s also superb with his hands. If you draft Johnson you’ll get a complete edge defender who’ll be a good pass rusher, strong run defender and an even better heart-and-soul leader.
George Karlaftis (Purdue)
He’s basically a lower-shelf Aidan Hutchinson. His run-defending is surprisingly poor but he flies off the edge to make plays as a pass rusher.
Boye Mafe (Minnesota)
At the Senior Bowl he won reps with natural, almost effortless brilliance. He’s an amazing athlete who can also win with power — he just needs to continue developing to find a new level of dominance/consistency.
David Ojabo (Michigan)
You were always going to get a raw player who needed development time. Now with the injury ruling him out until 2023, how much harder will it be for him to get that development?
Arnold Ebiketie (Penn State)
He has some really nice wins on tape and he’s certainly explosive. However — he didn’t run at the combine and then ran a really slow 1.69 10-yard split at his Pro-Day, which is a concern.
Sam Williams (Ole Miss)
When you run a 4.46 at his size and can get after the quarterback, that will appeal to teams. The character concerns will have been investigated fully by interested parties.
Nik Bonitto (Oklahoma)
I’m having a really hard time working him out because the size is better than expected, the length is a concern, the production amazing and the testing good. But he wins by starting in a very wide position then racing to the QB — thus he never really engages and at the next level you wonder if he’ll just be absorbed given he’ll need to make contact a lot more often than he did in college.
Drake Jackson (USC)
His weight has been up and down. On tape he has some amazing wins and you need to determine whether he can reach a level of consistency we simply didn’t see in college.
Michael Clemons (Texas A&M)
He doesn’t have the best testing profile but he’s built like a Greek God and has wins in the same way Darrell Taylor won at Tennessee. He’s also a clear BAMF.
DeAngelo Malone (Western Kentucky)
He’s had a really impressive draft season. He performed extremely well at the Senior Bowl, then gained weight, then tested well at the new weight and you feel like he has a lot to offer in the middle rounds as a rotational rusher.
Dominique Robinson (Miami-Ohio)
A converted receiver who has all the testing qualities and has some flashes on tape. He needs further development but the traits are there to be a useful rotational pass rusher.
Amare Barno (Virginia Tech)
He ran brilliantly in the 4.3’s at the combine but his tape is just rubbish for the most part. So can he make the most of that speed and become stronger, tougher and more impactful?
Jordan Davis (Georgia)
He’s basically Thanos but can you trust him to stay at 340lbs? He could be Haloti Ngata or Vita Vea if he stays in his combine shape, otherwise he could be a disappointing, small-percentage snap, two-down nose tackle.
Devonte Wyatt (Georgia)
He looks like he could be another Geno Atkins. However, there are rumblings of some lingering character concerns.
Travis Jones (Connecticut)
Stunning player with an outstanding testing profile and incredible upside. He dominated the Senior Bowl and deserves to go in round one.
Perrion Winfrey (Oklahoma)
His tape is crap so you have to work out how much that’s on him and how much is on the slanting scheme that basically didn’t seem to suit anyone at Oklahoma. He’s a fire-and-brimstone on-field personality and he’s a terrific athlete.
Matthew Butler (Tennessee)
A really interesting player who has the length and skill of a good pro-DT. He could be a useful three-technique in the NFL.
Phidarian Mathis (Alabama)
Tough, physical, long, passionate and productive (in 2021) but his testing profile is nothing special. If nothing else he’ll give you everything.
Logan Hall (Houston)
He plays too upright and he needs a better plan to his rushes. However — he’s quick and physical and you can’t sniff at a 4.44 short shuttle at his size.
Joshua Paschal (Kentucky)
He’s a Minotaur when it comes to defending the run — setting the edge beautifully and playing with a style that makes you want to start shouting and beating your chest. He has limitations as a pass rusher, though.
DeMarvin Leal (Texas A&M)
The idea of Leal is better than the reality of Leal. I watched one game where I thought — this is really good and he’s dominating — and a few other games where I thought, is he playing?
Devin Lloyd (Houston)
I’ve gone back-and-forth with Lloyd because you can see the intensity and the havoc-wreaking plays. Yet his technique is a bit too unorthodox at times and his testing results were nothing special.
Channing Tindall (Georgia)
He has a wonderful personality, he’s incredibly explosive, he’s a Ferrari in pursuit and he’s just getting started. Draft him.
Quay Walker (Georgia)
Walker is a dude. A physical, athletic, well-sized dude.
Leo Chenal (Wisconsin)
If you want a player with amazing size, incredible agility for that size and someone who can play downfield and just attack, attack, attack — Chenal’s your man. He might have some limitations trying to drop in coverage though.
Damone Clark (LSU)
If it wasn’t for his serious injury he could be a first round pick. He has everything.
Troy Andersen (Montana State)
One of the most fun players to watch in college football. Andersen is one of the best testers ever and has limitless upside if he can put it all together.
Nakobe Dean (Georgia)
I don’t know with Dean — he’s undersized, he’s done no testing and his best work comes as a blitzer for me. Is he a better college player than pro?
Christian Harris (Alabama)
Love the speed he showed at the combine. However, his tape just leaves you wanting more.
Chad Muma (Wyoming)
Very explosive and it shows up on tape (his attitude and aggression jump off the screen). His short shuttle is good not great though (an important test at LB).
Brian Asamoah (Oklahoma)
His testing performance was a bit underwhelming. On tape he flies to the ball-carrier better than any linebacker not named Channing Tindall so it was surprising.
Darrian Beavers (Cincinnati)
Explosive and agile — that’s what you need at the position. He will threaten as a blitzer and could end up being a very solid starter at the next level.
Derek Stingley Jr (LSU)
The most exciting cornerback to enter the league in years. The best corner in the draft with immense potential.
Sauce Gardner (Cincinnati)
I think he’s become a bit overrated, even if I like him as a player. I’m calling him ‘secret Sauce’ after his decision not to do any testing other than a forty run at the combine.
Andrew Booth (Clemson)
No testing makes it hard to get a read on Booth. I know some people in the league still believe he’s CB3 though.
Trent McDuffie (Washington)
Good player but I think he’s a Byron Murphy type. I’m not sold on this top-15 talk.
Kyler Gordon (Washington)
On tape there’s a lot to like but he shocked everyone with a mediocre combine. How do you judge him after that?
Kaiir Elam (Florida)
I thought he’d test worse than he did so kudos there. I think on tape he showed you can get him to bite and he does get beat but his frame and athleticism is attractive.
Roger McLeary (Auburn)
He’s massively competitive and does a good job to stick or recover and make last-minute breakups. He’s tiny with short-arms though and he didn’t run that well.
Jalyn Armour-Davis (Alabama)
A Rolls Royce who oozes class. He could end up being really good.
MJ Emerson (Mississippi State)
Purely from the eye-test, he’s a classic Seahawks corner. It won’t be a shock if they really like him.
Cam Taylor-Britt (Nebraska)
Extremely physical cornerback who loves a tackle. He also has the recovery speed and attitude this team needs.
Tariq Woolen (UTSA)
He has a physical profile to drool over. However, he’s unquestionably tight in his hips and the high-upside athleticism needs to be harnessed to make a better football player.
Demarri Mathis (Pittsburgh)
I’m a huge fan. His testing is through the roof and he just loves to stick a helmet in there and rough people up.
Jaylen Watson (Washington State)
He shows subtle technique wins to stick in coverage and I like that. He has a shot to make it at the next level due to his savviness.
Montaric Brown (Arkansas)
He had a ton of production in 2021 and is flying under the radar. He can bite on double moves and needs coaching there but otherwise I thought he had a really good final season in college.
Lewis Cine (Georgia)
His field-reading ability is extraordinary, as is his read-and-react. He also runs a 4.37 and hits like a hammer.
Kyle Hamilton (Notre Dame)
A big safety but his best trait was always his gliding running style to chase down ball-carriers. Then he tested poorly as a runner so what gives?
Nick Cross (Maryland)
Fantastic player who flies to the ball, can cover ground quickly and packs a punch as a hitter. Underrated.
Bryan Cook (Cincinnati)
If you need someone who can just come in, hold down his job and keep things organised — Cook’s your man. No testing makes it hard to assess his upside.
Daxton Hill (Michigan)
After expecting a headline-making combine he only did so-so. I was banking on that because he’s mostly an upside prospect who needs his true role defining.
Jalen Pitre (Baylor)
I’m having a hard time working him out. He’s a tough assessment for me.
Kerby Joseph (Illinois)
There’s something here. He’s rangy enough to cover ground, he has size to hit and he is a magnet to the ball.
Jaquan Brisker (Penn State)
I was always left wanting more from him. Show me something to get excited about.
Percy Butler (Louisana)
Electrifying special teams ace who deserves a shot to be more. An energy-creating player who provides day-one value as a gunner.
