Pick 210: Seattle Seahawks select Josh Harvey-Clemons, Safety Louisville
Back in Mock Draft 1.0, I wrote this about Harvey-Clemons:
"Harvey-Clemons is a project, no doubt about that. But he does have the one thing you cannot teach: length. At 6’ 4″ and 217 lbs, Harvey-Clemons has the wingspan of most NFL left tackles, sporting 35 3/8th-inch arms. On the field, Harvey-Clemons plays like his hair is on fire. He is ultra-aggressive on would be ball carriers, which can leave him vulnerable to missed tackles. When he does make contact, he knocks ball carriers backwards and punishes receivers who come across his face. A former five-star recruit, Pete Carroll is sure to love the raw skill set in Harvey-Clemons. The issue with this player is not one, but two failed drug test for marijuana that led to his dismissal from Georgia. Typically, multiple suspension athletes do not make it long in the NFL, but Carroll truly believes he can help any player reach his full potential."
The team has since signed Bradley McDougald, but that is only a one-year deal. Harvey-Clemons is a long term player, and one with tremendous upside. The team is interested in Obi Melifonwu, but Harvey-Clemons is the discount version.
