Seattle Seahawks Draft Grades: Obum Gwacham

C. <p>If you look up “raw prospect” in the dictionary, you will find a picture of Obum Gwacham.</p> <p><strong>Strengths</strong></p> <ul> <li>He is at his best when in pursuit. He has good change-of-direction to avoid blocks and has the speed and agility to stay with ball carriers.</li> <li>Plays with an aggressive mentality and run hard through the whistle.</li> <li>High character and hard worker. Always in the weight room.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Weaknesses</strong></p> <ul> <li>He is athletic for a DE, but has no timing. Often is the last guy off the snap.</li> <li>Misses routine tackles.</li> <li>Can get swallowed up easily by offensive linemen.</li> <li>Below-average play recognition and awareness.</li> <li>No real pass-rush moves. Just speed.</li> <li>24-years old already.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Scheme Fit</strong></p> <p>I really don’t see where he fits in a 4-3. Not even close to enough power to play with his hand in the dirt, but doesn’t have the experience or awareness to play linebacker. Maybe they see a project, who can be a <strong><a href=. DE. Oregon State. OBUM GWACHAM
