Round 6, 210th overall: Josh Harvey-Clemons, SS, Louisville
The day will come eventually where Kam Chancellor needs to be replaced. Hopefully that won’t be for another two to three years but in any case, a wise front office looks ahead. Josh Harvey-Clemons looks the part. Chancellor is 6’3″, 232 lbs. Harvey-Clemons checks in at 6’4″, 217. With some filling out, he could be that enforcer the Seahawks love at strong safety. He doesn’t hesitate when it’s time for a big hit. He has good vision and is good in coverage, quickly finding his man and still being aware of the location of the ball. He does have a few red flags (previously dismissed from Georgia for marijuana charges), but he is worth the risk. His NFL comparison on nfl.com? Kam Chancellor.
Round 7, 226th overall: Damore’ea Stringfellow, WR, Ole Miss
The Seahawks should always be looking to add shiny new toys for their prized quarterback Russell Wilson. They have addressed some holes in the offensive line here. Now it’s time to go on the attack and add another receiver. Now, adding a receiver in the 7th round is hardly going to bring much fanfare. Let’s dive a little deeper for this Mock Draft.
Stringfellow actually started his career with the Washington Huskies, so he is almost disqualified from this list. But I’ll allow it. He caught 11 touchdowns in his two seasons at Ole Miss. He is big and rangy at 6’2″, 211 lbs. He gave should-be-first-round-cornerback Marlon Humphrey all he could handle when the Rebels played Alabama. He had four catches for 87 yards and a TD in the 2016 matchup with the Tide. He isn’t the fastest guy but he could compliment the other Seahawks receivers with his size and hands.
See? There are plenty of players who could be Seahawks from schools other than the University of Washington. Credit to Chris Petersen for churning out so many NFL-ready prospects. There were so many, we had to cut them out of this Mock Draft.
